De Graafschap vs Ajax Kick Off Time

Event details:
NAME: De Graafschap vs Ajax
DATE: 2 Mar 2023
TIME: 20:00 UTC
VENUE: De Vijverberg, Doetinchem, Netherlands


The quarter-final stage of the KNVB Cup takes place this week, and on Thursday Ajax will be making the journey to face De Graafschap.

The visitors got back to winning ways in their most recent outing, while the hosts have won consecutive matches heading into this one.

De Graafschap head into this match as the underdogs simply due to the fact that they play in the Eerste Divisie, but they have been in great form as of late.




Adrie Poldervaart’s men have won two consecutive matches heading into this match, and even more impressively they have kept clean sheets in both of them.

Their most recent performance led to a 4-0 win against FC Eindhoven with Camiel Neghli having a game to remember as he scored a hat-trick to ensure they took all three points.



The team will also take confidence from the fact that they have been stronger at home throughout this season, winning most of their games in front of their own fans.

Considering that Ajax have been stronger on the road there will be even more pressure on De Graafschap to be resilient and strong in this one.

The visitors are currently in the Eredivisie title hunt right now, sitting second in the table, although continuing to push for silverware outside of the league is important for the team.



Ajax might have been knocked out of the Europa League, but they wasted no time in responding to that by defeating Vitesse in their most recent outing.

John Heitinga’s men had to come from behind to secure that result, though, as Davy Klaassen and Edson Alvarez secured the 2-1 win.
