Utrecht vs. Ajax (Sunday, 11.15am)
On the other hand, the visitors make the trip this weekend in search of a fourth consecutive victory across all competitions.
We say: FC Utrecht 1-3 Ajax
With a chance to reclaim top spot albeit temporarily, Ajax will be fired up for the clash, and we are tipping them to come away with all three points at the end of the 90 minutes.
Groningen vs. PSV (Sunday, 1.30pm)
Both teams emerged victorious in their final outings of 2021 and will be looking to continue in the same vein this weekend.
We say: Groningen 0-2 PSV Eindhoven
PSV Eindhoven have established a high level of dominance in this fixture and are favourites to come out on top. We fancy them to emerge victorious in relatively comfortable fashion.
Cambuur vs. Sparta (Sunday, 1.30pm)
The hosts head into the fixture after three games in a row without a win, while the visitors have not won a game since November.
We say: Cambuur 2-1 Sparta Rotterdam
Even though Sparta Rotterdam have drawn their three previous league games, they head into this one as the underdogs due to their league positioning.
Cambuur are certainly the favourites in this one, and the goal threat that they provide should be enough to secure them all three points.
Sittard vs. AZ (Sunday, 3.45pm)
The hosts shall be looking for a response after suffering a heavy 5-0 loss to Ajax in their most recent outing, which left them sat in the relegation zone.
We say: Fortuna Sittard 0-4 AZ Alkmaar
It is hard to see past anything other than an AZ Alkmaar victory in this particular match, with the squad being far stronger and the club having a lot more momentum.
Fortuna Sittard might have the home advantage here, but the number of goals they are leaking in throughout the season will continue to plague them here.
