Ajax vs Excelsior – Eredivisie: On the final match of this Thursday and Eredvisie’s 16th round
The local side Ajax, and Excelsior face off in Amsterdam, at the Johan Cruyff Arena.
The home team is in 3rd place of the league table, with 32 points, while the visitors have 17 points and are in 12th place of the competition.
This will be the first meeting between the two sides this season.
The local side comes into this match in a position somewhat below what was expected from the historical team of the city of Amsterdam, sitting in 3rd place of the Dutch league, while having the best attack and also the best defence of the competition.
The team is coming off a positive moment of form in terms of results, having only one loss on the last few weeks, only losing once since the end of September,
after a terrible start to the season, where they were eliminated early from the European competitions, both the Champions and Europa League.
As for Excelsior, they are making a good campaign on this edition of the Eredivisie, sitting close to a mid-table position,
although the advantage they had to the relegation zone kept shrinking on the last few rounds, since they are coming off some poor results in the competition, after having had a good streak.
This way, the team is coming off 4 consecutive losses, which made them drop some positions on the league table and lose some of the advantage they had over the teams on the bottom spots.
Ajax vs Excelsior – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Despite the poor streak of results that Excelsior is on, and the good moment of form of the hosts,
I believe this will be a close match, with an Excelsior looking more to close the paths to their goal to Ajax, delaying the occurrence of goals.
