De Graafschap vs Den Haag
Date: Friday, 1 March 2019
Kick-Off at 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: Stadion De Vijverberg (Doetinchem).
De Graafschap earned a massive glimmer of hope with a demolishing 0-3 victory over PEC Zwolle last weekend.
A brilliant display against direct relegation rivals could completely turn a corner for Henk de Jong’s men who sit second from bottom with a four-point deficit to Zwolle who are in the safe zone. More importantly, De Graafschap moved four points clear off the rock-bottomed NAC Breda with this win.
Can Superboeren build on such success and make it back-to-back league wins on Friday evening when they are set to raise the curtain on Matchday No 24 with the home tie against bottom-half rivals ADO Den Haag?
De Graafschap vs Den Haag: Head-to-head
Den Haag lead the head to head tie by a single win coming into their 13th encounter with Superboeren.
Just one of past four H2H games saw three or more goals scored.
Teams shared spoils in a goalless draw when they met each other in this term of Eredivisie in early-December.
De Graafschap are unbeaten in last three official H2H games with The Hague.
De Graafschap vs Den Haag: Prediction
De Graafschap generally play much better on the home patch where they were unbeaten in three straight outings before a narrow 0-1 loss to Utrecht. They will come into this in the highest of spirits following the aforementioned victory away at Zwolle.
The Hague played hit and cold throughout the season. They did well enough to stay three points adrift of the relegation play-offs at the moment, but a potential failure here could seriously complicate their situation down in the scrap.
Den Haag fell 1-5 at home to runners-up Ajax on Sunday. They took only one point from two away fixtures against the likes of NAC Breda (a 1-1 draw) and Emmen (a 3-2 defeat) this year. We feel De Graafschap can definitely take advantage of the momentum to pick up their second successive win and get closer to avoiding the relegation play-offs in the post season.
