Stadium: De Kuip
Ajax have already wrapped up another Eredivisie title but we’re not expecting them to ease off when visiting Feyenoord for De Klassieker.
The hosts are only fifth in the table, 24 points adrift, and struggling for form but this will always be classed as the biggest rivalry in the Netherlands.
We like 21/20 for an away win and over 2.5 goals in the game for our first Feyenoord vs Ajax prediction.
A Look At Feyenoord’s Betting Odds
Feyenoord have faltered since being crowned champions for the only time this century in 2017 and Europa League qualification looks the best they can hope for again.
Last Sunday’s 3-2 loss at Den Haag was a fifth defeat in 15 matches, with the same number of wins and draws achieved during that period.
Robert Bozenik opened the scoring early on at Kyocera Stadion but their opponents then took control of the game.
Nicolai Jorgensen gave the Pride of the South hope of a late rally, only for Jens Toornstra’s stoppage-time dismissal to be the final significant act.
He will now be suspended for this contest, along with 17-goal leading marksman Steven Berghuis, who received a straight red card in a previous 0-0 draw with Vitesse Arnhem here.
To be fair, Dick Advocaat’s side had only failed to score in one other home Eredivisie match this term, netting a healthy 32 times in 15 fixtures at De Kuip.
Looking at the Feyenoord vs Ajax odds, that makes 8/5 for an away win and both teams to score worth the extra risk.
A Look At Ajax’s Betting Odds
Ajax’s 35th title triumph was clinched in emphatic fashion via a 4-0 thumping of FC Emmen at Johan Cruyff Arena.
Jurrien Timber, Sebastien Haller, Devyne Rensch and Davy Klaassen were on target as Erik ten Hag further enhanced his impressive record as manager.
The 51-year-old has enjoyed 83 victories from 106 Eredivisie matches in charge of the Sons of the Gods.
Ten Hag was linked with a move to Tottenham but last week committed his future to staying in Amsterdam after signing a contract extension until 2023.
He said on the club’s official website: “I know who I am working with, I know what the ideas are, I know what goals we have. I’m happy here.
“I’m busy with where I am at, that’s at Ajax, that’s where my head and heart are at.
“You know what it is like with football rumours…it tells you that we’re doing good work at Ajax.
“I don’t want to rule out that that could have happened but I know what I have here.”
Ajax are on a 20-match unbeaten run in Holland’s top flight which features 16 wins, so there is every incentive to stay focused.
Let’s finish off our Feyenoord vs Ajax betting tips by taking 15/2 for a 2-1 away victory.
