Ajax vs Feyenoord Match Preview and Insights
The De Klassieker is one of the popular matches in European football and it features two big rivals from Dutch football – Ajax and Feyenoord. This intensely contested rivalry has been held since 1921 and it has been characterised with a lot of passion from fans and players alike. The rivalry has only been enhanced by the two clubs frequently challenging for the title in the Dutch Eredivisie. Ajax and Feyenoord have been extremely successful in Dutch football along with PSV Eindhoven. Ajax have been able to win the title in the 18-19 and 19-20 campaigns after having been a runner-up in four previous campaigns. Meanwhile, Feyenoord have not picked up the league title since the 2016-17 season.
The De Klassieker has been held on more than 190 occasions with Ajax getting the substantial advantage after more than 80 wins. Feyenoord are trailing their rivals after having only managed 55+ victories. Ajax have been able to gain this advantage owing to a couple of excellent years. The last win for Feyenoord in the De Klassieker – at the Johan Cruyff Arena – was back in 2005. Since then, Feyenoord have been able to end up on the losing side on several occasions. Even with Ajax losing several top players over the last few years, they have been able to maintain the advantage over Feyenoord.
Ajax heads into the game as one of the top teams in the Dutch Eredivisie. They have been scoring goals for fun in the domestic competitions, but they have struggled to exert the same kind of influence in the European games. After being knocked out of the Champions League at the group stages, Ajax have focus on the Europa League. After having picked up the league title in the last two campaigns, Ajax are looking for a third successive league title for the first time since 2013-14, when they won four titles on the bounce.
Feyenoord have had a disappointing start to the 2020-21 season. The highly inconsistent run from the club has seen them fail to make an impression in domestic and European competitions. After being knocked out of the Europa League in the group stages, Feyenoord have the advantage of focusing on the domestic games. Feyenoord have not won the league title since 2016-17 campaign. It is unlikely that the club will come close to challenging the same, as they have been quite inconsistent. A big problem for Feyenoord has been conceding goals, as they have consistently ranked as one of the teams with a poor defence at the top of the table.
Top Betting Tips for Ajax vs Feyenoord
Match result – Ajax win
Ajax have had a strong record against Feyenoord, who have been unable to claim much success in away matches against the rivals, for several years. The club has been impressive this season with a string of good results in domestic and European games. Feyenoord’s problems of consistency and defensive discipline continue to be the problem. In such a scenario, our predictions would opt for a Ajax win at 5/6, which would give a return of £18.33 with a £10 stake.
Both teams to score – yes
Feyenoord have defensive problems that simply do not seem to go away. The club has been going through several seasons of being poor at the back and the 2020-21 campaign is no exception. Even though Ajax have lost some big players, they continue to be a force going forward. In recent seasons, Ajax have been one of the top scoring teams in the Eredivisie by a comfortable margin. Our free tips would opt for both teams to score at 4/7.
Total goals over 2.5
The De Klassieker has been one of the most entertaining games for a while. Even though Feyenoord fans will be disappointed with the recent outcome of the derby meetings with Ajax, it has been a lot of fun for the neutral supporters. There have been a ton of goals scored by Ajax, who have capitalised on Feyenoord’s defensive problems with a lot of success. At the same time, Feyenoord have also registered some big wins like a 6-2 success – albeit at home – in 2019. Since both teams have an attacking and flowing football, our predictions would be to back over 2.5 goals, which is offered odds of 3/4.
