Tip Ajax - Groningen
The march to yet another Eredivisie title is on, for Ajax, and they’ll be favorites to bag three points when they host Groningen in their next league match on Sunday. A massive 15 points and five places separate these two sides. Hosts Ajax are top of the league standings with 57 points while sixth placed Groningen are on 42 points. Ajax are coming from an impressive 3-0 win over Heerenveen in the Dutch Cup, a good recovery after their march was slowed down in the 1-1 draw with second placed PSV. The champions have one clean sheet in the last five matches but are unbeaten in 18, with 15 wins in there. In the Premier League, they’re unbeaten in the last 12 matches, winning nine but keeping just four clean sheets. Out of their last 15 league matches, 11 have produced over 2.5 goals. At home, Ajax have been tough to crack, with nine wins, and just a loss in their 11 league matches this season. They head to this one having scored 14 goals in the last five league matches at home. The league leaders have almost everything going their way; they have the meanest defence and best attack, on top of holding a six-point buffer on second placed PSV.
Groningen have now gone unbeaten in four matches after their 1-0 triumph over Fortuna Sittard in the last game. That win came with their third clean sheet in four matches. In terms of attack, Groningen haven’t been big in recent matches; they haven’t managed more than a goal per game in their last five matches. They’ve failed to score in two of their last five matches but what should worry them more, is their away form. The team has no win in the last three away matches in the league, and just one win the last five. They have no clean sheet in 10 away league matches. Six of their last 10 away league matches have produced over 2.5 goals.
