De Graafschap vs PEC Zwolle Predictions & Match Preview

De Graafschap vs PEC Zwolle
Netherlands – KNVB Beker
Date: Tuesday, 30 October 2018
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK
Venue: Stadion De Vijverberg (Doetinchem).

PEC Zwolle have seen a very solid streak ahead of the International break ended by Feyenoord after it and now have a busy schedule looking to return to the winning ways, as they travel to Doetinchem for their KNVB Beker clash just days after the league clash against Heracles at home ground.

Zwolle have narrowly beaten Emmen, Staphorst, and Excelsior since mid-September and held AZ to a thrilling 2-2 draw in the process, showing off in the attacking third and surely looking to build on it now. They will want to move into the final stages of the competition and they have struggling rivals to beat to make it happen.

De Graafschap have made it through to the 2nd Round with a win on penalties over VVSB after a 3-3 draw on the road, building on it with a home win over Willem II and looking up to climb the table.

However, they’ve seen thrashing losses to Heerenveen and Fortuna Sittard since then and it’s now questionable if Henk de Jong is able to lift their spirits ahead of the important Cup clash at Stadion De Vijverberg.

De Graafschap vs PEC Zwolle: Prediction

We will now back Zwolle to turn another exciting clash between the sides their way and we’ll go for an Away win at 2.40, which seems great value seeing their recent form. We do feel they’ll be very motivated to cause an upset here and we do see them making it happen.

However, they could have to outgun the rivals to secure such a success, which also has us going for Over 2.5 goals FT at 1.60. This does feel like more of a banker bet at this point and we do feel seeing exciting head-to-head clashes of recent brings more evidence for such a bet here.
