Fortuna Sittard vs Ajax build-up & previous line-ups:
It started well for Fortuna Sittard when they came from a goal behind to beat FC Twente on the opening weekend. However, they couldn’t follow up that 2-1 win as Sjors Ultee’s men rescued a point against RKC Waalwijk, and that has since been forgotten as Fortunezen have registered back-to-back defeats on the road (3-1 at Sparta Rotterdam and 1-0 at Heerenveen). There’s no bigger challenge in Dutch football right now than facing Ajax, more so after the week they just had, Fortuna will understandably take a ‘nothing to lose’ approach though it’s worth point out across the previous 21 occasions they’ve hosted them Ajax have left with 13 wins, but the most recent meeting in January 2021 saw the champions narrowly leave with a 1-2 victory. Sébastien Haller decided the contest in the 64th minute.
Just when it seemed Ajax were heading into matchday six in chasing mode Feyenoord ran out 0-4 winners at then leaders PSV meaning Erik ten Hag’s men have taken control of the young Eredivisie table albeit with a one point advantage. The Amsterdammers have been irresistible this season having bagged 22 goals to date (4.4 per game) and shipped in just the once. Last time out they swept Cambuur aside, running out 9-0 winners at home, a game that saw eight different players get their name on the scoresheet. That sole effort they let go past them came in round two when Twente held them to a 1-1 draw. Ajax’s only blip as they’ve won four of their five league matches to date. Just as impressive is the fact De Godenzonen are the only Dutch top division club undefeated after the opening fixtures.

Players to watch: Dusan Tadic (Ajax)
Over the weekend on matchday five Dusan Tadic was once again imperious. He scored once and created two more as the Amsterdammers ran out emphatic 9-0 winners against Cambuur who are desperate to forget this encounter. In doing so Tadic — who is the league’s premier playmaker — registered his 100th and 101st assist in the Eredivisie which is an incredible feat as he’s the first to reach this milestone this century. That could soon be topped as Tadic, formerly of Groningen and Twente, has now got 98 goals to his name. A brace against Fortuna will mean he’s posted 100 goals and 100 assists in Dutch football’s top division, something that was last accomplished decades ago. If there’s any doubt Tadic is the best footballer playing outside Europe’s top five leagues it should now be extinguished.
