Stadium: Philips Stadion
PSV have beaten Ajax at Philips Stadion for the past three Eredivisie campaigns and are a tempting price to continue that trend in Sunday’s big showdown.
Mark van Bommel’s side dropped only two points at this venue last season and have already claimed a couple of convincing league victories here this term.
As always, there will be a white-hot atmosphere in Eindhoven and 37/20 for the hosts to prevail is a value PSV vs Ajax prediction.
A Look At PSV Eindhoven’s Betting Odds
PSV have incredibly only lost once at home in the past three Eredivisie seasons, winning 46 of the last 53 games played here in Holland’s top flight.
After being crowned champions three times in four years, they had to settle for second best last term, finishing two points behind Ajax.
However, they did enjoy a 3-0 success when those teams met in Eindhoven 12 months ago, having also triumphed by the same scoreline the previous campaign.
Van Bommel suffered a double blow when losing Luuk de Jong and Hirving Lozano over the summer, but others have since stepped up to the plate.
Donyell Malen scored all the goals in last weekend’s 5-0 thrashing of Vitesse Arnhem and netted for the Netherlands in their Euro 2020 win in Germany.
Steven Bergwijn is another rising star, while fellow winger Bruma has settled in well since arriving from RB Leipzig.
With the home support acting as a 12th man, we like 21/2 for the hosts to oblige 2-1 from the PSV vs Ajax odds.
A Look At Ajax’s Betting Odds
Of course, it would be foolish to oppose Ajax lightly, with Erik ten Hag’s side joint-top of the early table alongside PSV and coming off a 3-0 Champions League win over Lille.
The Amsterdam outfit cashed in on much-vaunted youngsters Frenkie de Jong and Matthijs de Ligt after reaching the European Cup semi-finals and taking the domestic title last term.
However, a strong spine remains, with highly-rated keeper Andre Onana and Daley Blind providing a steadying influence at the back, Nicolas Tagliafico running the engine room and Dusan Tadic in terrific goalscoring form.
Keeping Hakim Ziyech was a bonus and Holland winger Quincy Promes looks a shrewd £14million recruit from Sevilla, while Brazil-born David Neres is another danger man.
Ajax haven’t been overly convincing on the road in Europe recently, though, drawing away to PAOK Salonika and Apoel Nicosia, and we’ve taken note of those displays.
Let’s finish off our PSV vs Ajax betting tips by taking 3/1 for a home win and both teams to score.
