Ajax v Vitesse Arnhem
Ajax were pretty dismal in their defeat to PSV at the weekend. It summed up a lot of the problems that Alfred Schreuder has been facing since he took over from Erik Ten Hag in the summer as head coach. Even though we are only in November, it is now seven defeats in all competitions so far this season for Ajax, which is one more than the entire of last season. All of the defeats have come against ‘top’ sides: Napoli and Liverpool in the Champions League, plus PSV and AZ in domestic games.
Ajax have always managed the games against mid-table sides pretty well, especially those at home. They have always been able to create numerous chances and shots on goal; even when they drew against Go Ahead Eagles, they still attempted over 30 shots. The weapons are there to trouble Phillip Cocu’s men, who are not defensively resolute. After back-to-back wins in the Eredivisie, Vitesse slipped to a 0-4 defeat at the hands of Sparta.
The three points are there for the taking, which would put the Dutch giants back on top of the league. Last season, you might have fancied Vitesse to do something in Amsterdam, but this side is lacking in quality.
Feyenoord v Cambuur
The two matches that make up this mini Eredivisie mid-week round are to catch up from just over a week ago, when Ajax and Feyenoord were afforded a week off by the Dutch FA to give more rest between crucial European games. Feyenoord are still on the high of beating Lazio in De Kuip to top their bizarrely tight Europa League group. They followed that up at the weekend with a routine 0-2 win at Volendam, which wasn’t their finest performance by any means.
Facing Cambuur is slightly trickier to predict than you might think. The side from Leeuwarden are 17th, and still managerless after Henk de Jong stepped down due to health concerns. At home, they struggle to find the net, but away, they have kept more clean sheets and scored more goals.
Arne Slot’s men have drawn a few games already at home this season, giving away needless points in either the league or in Europe. Without a head coach, I think Cambuur lack the direction and extra motivation to surprise in Rotterdam, or keep out the goals if they go one or two down. The home side have the firepower to score a few, so I think a handicap backs the ever-improving Feyenoord to win comfortably.
