CRUNCH GAME IN EINDHOVEN ........
PSV EINDHOVEN - AJAX AMSTERDAM
Very briefly, this is pretty much the final chance for Ajax to get back into the title race. A couple of blips by PSV, including conceding an injury time equaliser at the weekend.Have enabled the visitors to close to within four points and, with a better goal difference, could really put some pressure on the defending champions with a win, which they will be going for, all guns blazing.
On a going day, Ajax can be unstoppable, as in the 5-1 win here last season, a victory which ended their poor run at the Philips Stadion, they have won their last four, scoring a whopping 17 goals and have not come to defend.
There are very few draws when these two meet, just one in twelve and two in seventeen meetings, so I am passing the handicap and my choice is the straight away win. On the nose !
4.5 points Ajax -1/2 ball 3.30 exchanges.
Ajax squad:Dennis Gentenaar,Marco van Duin, John Heitinga, Thomas Vermaelen, Samuel Kuffour, Jan Vertonghen, George Ogararu, Bruno Silva, Edgar Davids, Dennis Rommedahl,
