SPARTA ROTTERDAM VS AJAX PREVIEW & PREDICTION
Ajax will play against Sparta in Rotterdam on Sunday afternoon. The Amsterdammers will have to prepare for a Sparta that will pull out all the stops for a result.
Sparta proved itself an excellent service in the previous round of play. The six-points-duel at Roda JC was won by the club from Rotterdam-West (0-2). Sander Fischer and Robert Mühren took care of the two major hits. As a result, Sparta Roda has now fallen behind on four points. Trainer Dick Advocaat seemed to have reconciled himself with the nacompetition a few weeks ago, but Sparta may still be able to avoid it. The current backlog on number fifteen Willem II now amounts to five points.
Mühren was again important for Sparta. The Volendammer spoke about his expectations for the upcoming game. “We have a good feeling about the past two games,” Mühren said. We take this to Sunday. We’re going full. ” Lawyer already intimated that he will start with the same eleven players against Ajax as in the previous game.
If PSV does not collapse completely in the final stages of the season, then Ajax will probably end the season second. After the defeat of last week’s Eindhoven players with Willem II, Ajax players will have thought back to the unnecessary loss of points that had been made in previous games. If Ajax had been a little more concentrated, we could have looked forward to an exciting end of the competition. Now that will probably no longer happen.
This does not alter the fact that the Amsterdammers still have the ambition to complete the season as well as possible. That will happen in the next two weeks without Amin Younes, who, after his refusal to play in the won match against SC Heerenveen (4-1), has been put out of the selection for two weeks. Behind the names Andre Onana and Siem de Jong there is a question mark for Sunday, although it is expected that the goalkeeper will be able to start.
PREDICTION: Over 2.5 goals @ 1.46
