Kick-off: 1545, 31/03/2019
Stadium: Johan Cruyff Arena
PSV can close in on another Dutch Eredivisie title triumph by avoiding defeat in Sunday’s top-of-the-table clash with Ajax in Amsterdam.
The visitors go into this game five points clear of their opponents and there will be just seven rounds of fixtures remaining after they meet.
Mark van Bommel’s side can be backed at 23/20 not to lose at Johan Cruyff Arena and that is our opening Ajax vs PSV prediction.
A Look At Ajax’s Betting Odds
Ajax have been awesome in the Champions League this term, pushing Bayern Munich close in their pool and then knocking out Real Madrid.
Former Southampton playmaker Dusan Tadic was outstanding in a sensational 4-1 triumph at the Bernabeu, along with much-vaunted youngsters Matthijs de Ligt and Frenkie De Jong.
However, Erik ten Hag’s side haven’t managed to keep up the same level of performance in subsequent domestic matches.
A 4-0 drubbing of Fortuna Sittard did briefly maintain the momentum, but Ajax then needed a late Daley Blind strike to edge out PEC Zwolle 2-1 at this venue.
Lessons were clearly not learnt from that scare, as a 1-0 loss at AZ Alkmaar before the international break put a huge dent in their title ambitions.
Looking at the Ajax vs PSV odds, we reckon 16/5 for a draw here is good value.
A Look At PSV Eindhoven’s Betting Odds
PSV struggled in their Champions League group, although a closing draw away to Inter Milan did allow Tottenham to progress in second place behind Barcelona.
The Eindhoven outfit also took a point off Spurs via a 2-2 stalemate in Holland and only went down 2-1 in the reverse fixture at Wembley after leading for 75 minutes of that clash.
Those performances show that PSV have the quality and temperament to match Ajax and they have been incredibly consistent in the Eredivisie this term.
Van Bommel’s men completed a hat-trick of wins when obliging at VVV Venlo last time out and have suffered only one defeat in this competition all season.
Netherlands striker Luuk de Jong heads the Golden Boot table on 21 goals, while Mexico flyer Hirving Lozano is five behind in third place.
Steven Bergwijn has 11 to his credit to complete a forward line which is oozing confidence, as they seek a fourth title in five years.
Let’s finish off our Ajax vs PSV betting tips by taking 23/2 for an entertaining 2-2 draw.
AZ Alkmaar 1-0 AJAX
VVV Venlo 0-1 PSV – Hirving Lozano
Head-to-head: PSV 3-0 Ajax, PSV 3-0 Ajax, Ajax 3-0 PSV, PSV 1-0 Ajax, Ajax 1-1 PSV
