When Ajax plays Fortuna Sittard in the first game of the season, they will be looking to atone for a heartbreaking loss to PSV.
The bookmakers see the Amsterdammers as favorites to defeat the Yellow-Greens at Fortuna Sittard Stadion, despite their lack of performance in the 5-3 Super Cup loss.
A man to watch in the away team will be summer signing Steven Bergwijn, who opened his goal-scoring account at the weekend, speaking of competitive matches. Fellow new recruit Calvin Bassey misses out through suspension.
The hosts, on the other hand, face an uphill task in the season opener, and we are positive that they will adopt a defence-minded approach in Saturday’s clash.
However, preventing Ajax high-profile attackers from scoring is easier said than done. Ajax defeated Fortuna in each of the previous seven meetings between the two clubs in the Dutch top flight, which is yet another reason why away triumph should be considered.
