The advantage for Ajax is that AZ and PSV will face each other in the final weekend, and their goal difference is better than AZ, but it will be useless if they can’t maintain their unbeaten record against clubs outside the top four. Ajax have failed to pick up any points from their last two visits to Utrecht, although they won easily 2-0 in the first meeting of the season.
On the other hand, Utrecht are already confirmed for the European playoffs having won four of their last five matches (with a loss at Feyenoord among them). What remains is looking for their eighth away win in the league this season, and it could be a lot of goals coming in either goal as Utrecht away games have the highest average goals scored in the league at 4.16 per game.
Moreover, Utrecht scored twice as many goals away from home as they did at home, with their defense just as bad as Cambuur. Now that there’s nothing at stake for Utrecht, it’s possible that his players will want to help striker Anastasios Douvikas become the league’s top scorer.
Ajax won the last Eredivisie encounter between the two clubs, by a 2-0 scoreline at the Stadio Galgenwaard in August. Steven Berghuis scored the opener for Ajacieden in the 10th minute. Brian Brobbey also scored.
Ahead of an important duel, Dušan Tadić is one of the key players to keep an eye on. He managed ten goals and eighteen assists for Ajax this season, making him the fifth player in a row to achieve a ‘double double’ in the Eredivisie.
Meanwhile, former Ajax player Zakaria Labyad scored his first goal since returning to Utrecht last week. In his final season before moving to Ajax, he scored seventeen goals and provided twelve assists in 39 games for Utrecht.
