As the Eredivisie season edges towards a climactic finish, the much-anticipated clash between Feyenoord and Ajax on April 7, 2024, promises to be a defining moment in the title race.

With both teams having experienced mixed fortunes in recent weeks, this encounter at the iconic Stadion Feijenoord is more than just a game; it's a battle of pride, position, and potentially, destiny.

Current Form

Feyenoord's Current Form

Feyenoord enters this fixture on the back of a solid, albeit somewhat disappointing, draw against bottom-placed FC Volendam, halting their momentum but still showcasing their strength with a lengthy unbeaten streak.

Despite this minor setback, their impressive tally of 10 wins and four draws from their last 14 league outings underlines their credentials as a formidable force in the Dutch top flight.

Ajax's Current Form

On the other hand, Ajax, positioned fifth in the standings, has shown resilience and determination.

Their recent 1-1 draw with Go Ahead Eagles, although a missed opportunity to close the gap on fourth-placed AZ Alkmaar, reflects a side that, despite inconsistencies, cannot be underestimated.

With both teams experiencing draws in their latest fixtures, it sets the stage for an electrifying showdown.

Ajax Team News

Ajax's John van't Schip harbours hope for the return of key players Brian Brobbey and Chuba Akpom, albeit with managed expectations regarding their match fitness.

Injuries have sidelined Jordan Henderson and Steven Berghuis, adding to the tactical considerations for Ajax.
