Our prediction for this Netherlands Eredivisie match:
De Grolsch Veste will host a highly-anticipated Eredivisie game between Twente and Ajax, the two top-five teams. The Reds have been producing excellent displays in the season finale, with the team eyeing their fourth consecutive league win, but they will have a big fish to fry against the reigning champions. The good news for the hosts is that experienced defender Robin Propper is back from suspension, but Ron Jans is unlikely to make too many changes to the team that rolled over RKC Waalwijk 5-0 at the weekend.
The Amsterdammers, on the other hand, aim to build on back-to-back wins over Groningen and Utrecht. Ajax are desperate to book their place in the Champions League and seeing that second-place PSV take on AZ Alkmaar on the road, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the away team. Steven Berghuis remains on the sidelines with heart problems, whilst Chico Conceicao misses out with injury.
Highlighted Player (Steven Bergwijn):
Steven Bergwin is a product of ASC Waterwijk football school, but in 2009 he was spotted by Ajax scouts. In 2011 he moved to PSG and he continued playing for the club’s reserve team at senior level. He made his debut with the senior team on May 20, 2015 in a 2-0 win over Heracles.
Over the years the Dutch footballer born in Amsterdam on October 8, 1997, has established himself as a first-team regular at PSV, earning a call-up for the national team as well. Steven Bergwijn made his Netherlands debut on October 12, 2018 in a 3-0 win over Germany. His main position is left winger, but he is used as both right winger and centre-forward as well.
His preferred foot is right and it has to be noted that his parents are of Suriname descent, he has a dual citizenship. Bergwijn scored 14 goals in 33 appearances for PSV in the 2018/2019 Eredivisie season.
Highlighted Team (Twente):
Based in the city of Enschede, Twente is a Dutch football club that welcomes their rivals at De Grolsch Veste. The venue was opened on May 10, 1998, and the capacity of the stadium is 30,205 people. The club was founded in 1965 as a merger of Sportsclub Enschede and Enschedese Boys.
The Reds did remarkably well to win the Eredivisie title in the 2009/10 season, with the team finishing the process only one point clear of Dutch giants Ajax. As a result, Twente booked their place in the Champions League group stages. The Reds did well to collect six points in their group, but that did not help them make it to the last 16.
Twente are well known for their red jerseys, but they wear dark blue shirts when playing on the travels. The Reds take on Heracles Almelo in the Twentse Derby. Sander Boshchker is leading Twente’s all-time goal-scoring chart with 653 goals on his account.
