Our prediction for this Netherlands Eredivisie match:
All eyes will be on Stadion Galgenwaard when Utrecht and Ajax go head to head in a highly-anticipated Eredivisie game. Utrecht are eager to put an end to their three-game losing run and they are surely capable of matching the fallen Dutch powerhouse in front of home fans. Keep in mind, though, that important defender Nick Viergever is sidelined through suspension following his sending-off in the 1-0 loss to FC Volendam.
Ajax, meanwhile, are desperate to put an end to their three-game losing run in the Dutch top flight and seeing that they will adopt an attack-oriented approach in Sunday’s matinee as well, both teamst to score betting option should be considered. Both Steven Berghuis and Benjamin Tahirovic are out of contention with injuries, while Silvano Vos misses out through suspension. In their last meeting in the Eredivisie Ajax recorded a 3-1 win over Utrecht.
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 (Utrecht):
Established on July 1, 1970, Utrecht is a Dutch club that competes in the Eredivisie. The club was founded as a merger of VV DOS, USV Elinkwijk, and Velox, and it has to be noted that VV DOS did well to win the Eredivisie trophy back in 1958.
Utrecht, on the other hand, have yet to win the national championship, but they have lifted three KNVB Cup trophies (1984/85, 2002/03, 2003/04). Leo van Veen is leading the club’s all-time goal-scoring chart with 153 goals. Speaking of the club’s colours, they were white and red shirts when playing at home, while blue is the dominant colour of their away jersey.
Due to the hooligan clashes, Utrecht have a rivalry with Dutch giants Ajax. The games between the two clubs have always been very tense on the field. Utrecht welcome their rivals at Stadion Galgenwaard, the venue which can hold up to 23,750 people. The stadium was opened back in May 1936.
