Fortuna Sittard vs Ajax: Prediction and Betting Tips
Fortuna Sittard looking for some heroics as they host the champions
Fortuna Sittard won the KNVB cup twice in their history and the Dutch second division which is called Eerste Divisie four times. Notably, Fortuna won promotion to the Eredivisie (first division) in 2017/18 after being relegated in 2001/02. They finished 15th in the 2019/20 season in the top flight which was also their best finish in the Eredivisie since the year 2000.
This season, coach Sjors Ultee’s team had a custom start to their 2021/22 season. After a fine win over Twente in their opening match of the season, Fortuna struggled in their next matches. In fact, a draw and two defeats made their points tally four in five matches. And with Ajax coming to town, that tally is destined to stay put unless a heroic performance is displayed by the Sittard players.
Fortuna Key Points
- Fortuna had just two clean sheets in their last ten matches
- BTTS happened in Fortuna’s four of last five games
- Ultee’s team scored in all of their last five home matches
Ajax is on course for a fifth win in a row
The most successful club in the Netherlands Ajax and winners of 35 Eredivisie titles are at the top again. After a draw in the second round with Twente, the Godenzonen won four of their other matches. Incredibly Ajax scored 22 goals in the Eredivisie this season. Also, another goals galore was on show in Lisbon last week in the UCL against Sporting winning 5-1.
It’s not just the offensive part that’s astonishing coach Erik Ten Hag’s team. Remarkably, their defense has let in just two goals since their 0-4 heavy defeat in the Dutch Super Cup by Feyenoord. Moreover, Ajax scored in both halves in all but one of their five matches.
Ajax Key Points
- Ajax scored in all of their five matches in the Eredivisie this season
- All five matches of Ajax saw two or more goals
- Ten Hag’s team had four clean sheets in five games
Fortuna Sittard vs Ajax Prediction
There is no doubt about who is the favorite to win this game. However, the question in recent Ajax games is how many goals they will score. Hence we will focus on the total goals scored in this match.
The bookies are confident that Ten Hag’s men will score over 2.5 goals in this game. Surely Vbet’s odds of 1.70 for that bet is proof that Ajax are favorites to score a lot of goals. And considering their recent scoring form, it looks almost inevitable.
On the opposite side, Fortun are in a helpless position. Coach Ultee’s team conceded in all of their four games so far and they must adopt a tough defensive style to stop Ajax.
Finally, we predict Ajax to score over 2.5 goals in this match. As we don’t see Fortuna have the capability to neutralize this Ajax attack.
