Into the Lion’s DenBy: Mohamed | February 25th, 2011
It doesnâ€™t get any tougher than a trip to Eindhoven, especially facing an in-form PSV side, but Ajax can go with some degree of confidence (well, some).
Two excellent wins over Anderlecht have restored what looked to be a difficult period for De Boerâ€™s men, which included a disappointing 2-2 draw away to Roda (2-0 up as well), in saying that they havenâ€™t lost since that capitulation at Utrecht in late January. Since; 7 games, 6 wins, 1 draw, 17 goals and just 3 conceded.
Ajax hasnâ€™t won at the Philips Stadion since March 2007, a famous 5-1 victory in which Wesley Sneijder stared in. Some of the more recent visits are ones to forget for De Godenzonen â€“ but they know defeat could put a massive spanner in their title hopes, a win and itâ€™s game on.
Both sides come on the back of reaching the Europa League round of 16, so it should be a cracking contest when two of Hollandâ€™s most successful sides meet.
