Dutch Eredivisie Winner 2022/2023 Preview

The next, 67th in a row, draw of the elite football championship of the Netherlands began in August 2022, and will end at the end of May 2023. The number of participants in the tournament is 18. The teams will play 34 rounds, in which they will play each other twice, once at home and once away. At the end of the championship, the club that scores the most points will win the title of champion. Bets on this event are accepted online.

According to bookmakers, the main contender for the title is the reigning champion Ajax Amsterdam. The main competitors of the capital club are PSV, Feyenoord and AZ Alkmaar. Which of the clubs will finish first in the standings can be predicted by studying these teams in detail.

Ajax

The Ajaxids hold the record for the most Eredivisie league titles won. In total, the Amsterdam team won the domestic championship 36 times. The future trophy, if it can be obtained, may become the fourth in a row for the “sons of God”. After 11 rounds, Alfred Schroeder’s wards were slightly ahead of their closest pursuers. However, there are still a lot of matches ahead, so that the inhabitants of the Johan Cruyff Arena are able to go into a larger lead.

Dusan Tadic and partners look great in the domestic arena and are able to improve. The fight against PSV Eindhoven can be intense, but the Jews have a more experienced squad.

PSV

The Red-White Army last won the league title in the 2017/2018 season. In the current draw, the guys of Ruud van Nistelrooy are quite regularly gaining test points in the domestic championship. However, the “peasants” periodically concede on the road to frankly weak rivals. In away matches in the first third of the championship, the club from Eindhoven lost to Twente, Kambur and Groningen.

The Red-Whites have a competitive roster, but it will not be easy for Luc de Jong and company to challenge Ajax for the gold.

Feyenoord

The guys of Arne Slot in 11 starting rounds of the championship lost only to PSV on the road with a score of 3:4. At the same time, Feyenoord also lost points in a draw with modest Heerenveen, Nijmegen and Sittard. In general, the team from Rotterdam can stumble in a match with any opponent, and this does not add any pluses in the fight for the champion title.

Based on the instability of the Rotterdam club, the third place will be the maximum for the “pride of the south”. The brainchild of Tony van Bodegom is not yet capable of fighting Ajax and PSV.

AZ Alkmaar

The Cheese Farmers look quite confident in the UEFA Conference League, but Pascal Jansen’s guys periodically stumble in the domestic championship. The first losses of AZ Alkmaar in the Eredivisie occurred in the second half of October. The Red-White-Blacks alternately lost to Feyenoord and Excelsior with a total score of 2:5. Prior to that, the brainchild of René Nelissen had a series without a loss in the championship, which was nine matches in a row.

Jordi Klasi and partners have a prospect, but this season it will be extremely difficult for “cheese farmers” to bypass the giants of the Dutch football. In addition, it is not easy for the team from Alkmaar to fight on several fronts and the accumulated fatigue can play a cruel joke at the end of the season.

Our forecast

If Ajax continues to act confidently in the domestic arena, then it will not be difficult for the “sons of God” to get gold medals. PSV will try to impose a fight on the Ajaxes, but based on the form of the teams, the maximum for the Peasants will be silver. It will be difficult for Pride of the South to win back the gap from the leaders of the championship, so Feyenoord and promising AZ Alkmaar will most likely compete for bronze.
