Ajax v Utrecht - Eredivisie
Ajax will look to continue their perfect start in the Eredivisie on Sunday.

Utrecht will go head-to-head against reigning champions Ajax at the Stadion Galgenwaard in the Eredivisie on Sunday.

The hosts have endured a winless start to their league campaign. After back-to-back draws in their first two games, they lost 3-2 at Emmen last week. They took the lead twice, but Emmen fought back to secure a win.

Ajax, meanwhile, maintained their 100% record in the league with a 1-0 win over Sparta Rotterdam, with Steven Bergwijn's 37th-minute strike proving to be the difference.
