Feyenoord and Ajax meet at De Kuip Stadium in Rotterdam on Sunday afternoon. Both teams are very high on the table, not to mention these two are big rivals. And that means that their clash is bound to be packed with excitements. If you’re looking for some betting tips for this match, here’s one Feyenoord vs Ajax prediction for you!
The team from Rotterdam is currently at the 3rd spot on the Eredivisie table. I think they would be very pleased if they finished the season at that spot. Right now, Feyenoord have 7 points more than Vitesse who are forth, but the season is long and anything can happen till then. This means that there’s no rest for them if they want to stay near the top.
The bad news is that their recent form hasn’t been that great. This team has won only 1 point in the previous 3 rounds, which needs to worry them, especially because the teams they played in those games are teams from the lower half of the table.
And this Sunday, they are facing arguably the best team in the Netherlands. Ajax is the side that they haven’t beaten in the league since 2012. On the bright side, they are playing at home, so maybe the support from the stands will give their players the boost they need. Actually, there’s only one team in the league that’s won more points at home than Feyenoord. This team has won 8 out of 9 home matches this season.
Feyenoord might be good on their stadium, but Ajax are fantastic in away matches. This season, they won 8 out of 9 possible away matches, which is the highest number of victories on the road in the league.
Actually, Ajax are the best in the league in many aspects, even though they’re not at the top of the table. They have 2 points fewer than PSV, meaning that the title race is still pretty much open. And Ajax’ form shows that they’re very optimistic about their chances.
Before playing 4:4 with Heerenven in the previous round, Ajax had a winning streak of 11 victories in a row. They are determined to get back on the winning wagon by smashing Feyenoord on Sunday afternoon. And considering how powerful they are in the final third, they seem capable of winning this match with a really large score.
In the previous 5 matches, Ajax have scored a total of 24 goals in total, which is a clear proof of their attacking power. The best thing is that the threat to the opposition goal comes from several players. Their top scorer is Dusan Tadic, with 12 goals in Eredivisie, but there are 12 more players with at least a goal to their names.

Feyenoord vs Ajax Prediction
In my eyes, Ajax are clear favorites here. However, I wouldn’t be surprised if Feyenoord managed to score a goal or two. That’s why my betting advice for this game is to focus on a high number of goals. It won’t be a surprise if we see over 3-4 goals in this match.
