- Both teams have scored and over 2.5 goals have been produced in four of the last seven league meetings between these two clubs
- Ajax have won all of their last seven games against Sparta Rotterdam
- Ajax have scored exactly two goals in each of their last three matches
Ajax Expected to Have Some Tired Legs Following Europa League Tie
Ajax ran out 2-0 winners in their last Eredivisie game against Heracles and then beat Lille 2-1 away in midweek to extend their winning run to nine matches in all competitions. Sparta lost 2-1 at home to Fortuna Sittard last weekend and will be hoping to take advantage of Ajax’s busy schedule and tired legs on Sunday.
The hosts have won each of their last seven games against Sparta and have really enjoyed playing against this club over the years. However, there is a good chance we will see goals scored by both clubs this weekend as over 2.5 goals have been produced and both teams have scored in four of the last seven encounters between these two sides.
While Ajax have been in great form of late, both teams have scored in four of their last six matches and over 2.5 goals have been produced in each of those encounters. Both teams have also scored in three of Sparta’s last five outings, which adds further weight to our prediction for both teams to score on Sunday.
We’re confident that both teams will score and over 2.5 goals will be produced this weekend. We’re predicting a narrow 2-1 win for Ajax as they are in great form right now but are likely to make some changes to their side due to a busy fixture list.
