FC Utrecht Reserves vs Ajax Reserves prediction

Netherlands Eerste Divisie

Utrecht Reserves (12) vs Ajax Reserves (2)

Utrecht are placed in the middle of the league with total record of 8-8-8 and 35-37 in goal difference. They have conceded minimum 1 goal in 8 straight league matches, and I think its fair to expect that to happen again tonight when looking at their opponents recent form specially. Also taking in mind how much the hosts form have dropped after their good start this season.

Youngsters of Ajax are the highest scoring team of the league. Total record is 15-5-4 with 64-30 in goal difference. They are coming from another great and impressive performance when they crushed Go Ahead Eagles (5) by 5-1 last time out. Defender Kik Pierie is suspended tonight.

* Ajax won the reverse fixture by 4-0 back in October, Utrecht won this match by 4-3 last season

* 6 of 8 Utrecht losses this season ended up by losing with 2+ goals

* 12 of 15 Ajax victories this season ended up by winning with 2+ goals

Taking in mind how good Ajax actually looks atm, I expect them to continue winning here. Utrecht will, or at least should, go for the win as well, and the outcome should be goals, probably both ways. But overall Ajax has a lot of quality, specially up front and I don’t see how they will fail in finding the net here. Im not getting surprised if the guests win this match by 2+ goals, as they usually do when they win. 1-3?
