The Fortuna Sittard team will challenge the Ajax team in a Matchday 4 Dutch Eredivisie in Fortuna Sittard Stadion Stadium, Sittard on Sunday, September 03, 2023. For streaming coverage of Fortuna Sittard vs Ajax, preview and how to watch it, see in this article.
Fortuna Sittard will face Ajax at the Fortuna Sittard Stadium this Sunday in the continuation of the Eredivisie competition. The two teams have had different starts to the season, with Fortuna Sittard in eighth place and Ajax in second.
Fortuna Sittard drew 2-2 against Excelsior in their last match. They trailed by two goals in the first half, but managed to come back in the second half with goals from Deroy Duarte and Mouhamed Belkheir. This was their second draw of the season, having previously held Feyenoord 1-1.
Coach Danny Buijs will probably maintain the 4-3-3 formation he has used so far. He has several options up front, with Kaj Sierhuis, Loreintz Rosier and Belkheir competing for a place. Sierhuis is a new signing from Reims, who is a former Ajax player. He will hope to show what he is capable of against his old club.
Ajax suffered a 1-0 defeat to Ludogorets in the second leg of the Europa League play-off. They won 3-0 in the first leg, so they still qualify for the group phase with an aggregate of 3-1. However, the defeat was of course disappointing for a team that has big ambitions in Europe.
Coach Maurice Steijn has made many changes to the Ajax squad this season. He has brought in several talented young players, such as Josip Sutalo, Georges Mikautadze, Chuba Akpom, Sivert Mannsverk and Carlos Forbs. He has also released several core players, such as Mohammed Kudus, Edson Alvarez, Jurrien Timber and Dusan Tadic.
Ajax have won two of their three league games this season, losing only to PSV Eindhoven. They will look to get back to winning ways against Fortuna Sittard.
On the other hand, Fortuna Sittard have had a pretty good start to the season, but they will face a big challenge against Ajax. Ajax has a stronger and more experienced squad and has a perfect record against Fortuna Sittard. Even though Ajax just lost to Ludogorets, they are still favorites to win here.
