PSV vs Ajax Predictions
- Ajax have won their last five domestic games.
- The Eredivisie leaders won both of their league clashes against PSV Eindhoven this season, beating them 5-0 at home and 2-1 away.
- PSV were in European action as recently as Thursday night, which could work against Roger Schmidt’s men on Sunday.
- In league and cup, Ajax are unbeaten in the last nine head-to-head games between the teams.
KNVB Cup could provide perfect send-off for Ten Hag
With Ajax boss Erik ten Hag looking increasingly likely to succeed Ralf Rangnick as Manchester United manager this summer, a Dutch league and cup double would be the perfect way for him to depart Amsterdam. They face PSV Eindhoven in Sunday’s KNVB Cup final, looking to secure the first of those two pieces of silverware, and should enter the encounter in a positive mood.
Indeed, Ajax have already beaten PSV twice in the Eredivisie this season, by an aggregate score of 7-1, and lead their rivals by four points at the top of the league table. Ajax have undoubtedly been the best side in Dutch football this term, racking up 85 goals and conceding just 15 in their 29 league games, and posting a goal difference 31 better than PSV, as well as winning each of their last five domestic games either side of a Champions League elimination to Benfica.
Roger Schmidt’s men will certainly be competitive on the big occasion, having lost just two of their 15 games since last facing Ajax in January. However, a league draw with FC Twente, as well as a loss in their Europa Conference League tie with Leicester City, means PSV have just one win in their last four matches, and enduring a testing European clash on Thursday is unlikely to bolster their cup chances when they kick off less than 72 hours later.
Back Ajax for cup glory in Rotterdam
Ajax are unbeaten in the last nine competitive meetings between these two giants of Dutch football (excluding the pre-season Johan Cruyff shield), and their excellent form and greater time for preparation make them worth backing to do the job in 90 minutes on Sunday, claiming the third cup win of Ten Hag’s tenure.
Meanwhile, Ajax have seen both teams net in seven of their last eight games, so a 2-1 victory could represent a decent correct score prediction.
