Utrecht will welcome Ajax to Stadion Galgenwaard for a matchday 19 fixture in Netherlands Eredivisie. The last meeting on 3rd October 2021 ended in a Utrecht 1-0 win. Both sides have met twenty-three times in the most recent seasons. Utrecht has won 6 matches, and Ajax triumphed in 10. Recent outings average 3.13 goals, while both teams score 52% of the time.

Utrecht's last game in the Netherlands Eredivisie against Twente at home ended in a 1-1 draw. They had more ball possession and created more goal-scoring opportunities but didn't benefit from it. Utrecht scored in the second half in injury time.

Ajax's recent game against Fortuna Sittard ended in a home 5-0 win. Goden dominated the game and deserved the win. Ajax had good chances in both halves and scored in the 14th, 22nd, 82nd, 90th and 90+3 minute.

Since the start of the season, Utrecht is more dominant at home. They have six wins out of 10 games on home soil. Although Utrecht is among the most solid home teams in the league, they are far from perfect. Their defence is not as good as expected with just 30% home clean sheets.

Ajax has picked up 15 points from the previous six league games. It is quite intriguing that they prefer playing on the road. Joden has collected 2.60 points on average per away game, compared to 2.20 at home.

The hosts will have to work hard to get a good result. Utrecht has won just 60% of home games. On average they score 2.30 goals and concede 1.00 per game. Ajax won their previous away game and I expect more of the same. Their away record looks impressive.

The visitors have a better record and I have to back them. Utrecht wins on average 2.10 points per home game. I am not sure they have what it takes to compete against Ajax. My prediction is Ajax to win.

I expect a thrilling contest with plenty of goals. Both sides score and concede on average 2.86 goals per game. Over 2.5 goals were scored in an average of 46% of Utrecht's home and Ajax's away games. My prediction is Over 2.5 Goals.

Both sides are dangerous going forward. Utrecht has scored in 80% of home games. Ajax is a decent match and has scored in all away games. My prediction is Both Teams to Score: Yes.
