Den Bosch vs Volendam
Netherlands – Eerste Divisie
Date: Friday, 8th February 2019
Kick-off at 19.00 UK/ 20.00 CET
Venue: De Vliert (‘s-Hertogenbosch).
The Blue-White Dragons had two away matches in a row the last two match-days and stumbled in both of them. The two-point lead they enjoyed over closest rival Twente has now changed to a four-point deficit, and the team has been demoted from the league-topper status to the second spot.
They come back to familiar turf now, and there’s not even an inch leeway for mistakes. The team must convert this tie to three points.
Palingboeren is not that good a team on the road, and they should be aware that they are taking on a wounded animal. The stakes are massively placed against the visitors, but the home-team is under quite a lot of pressure too.
Den Bosch vs Volendam: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Two of the last three games saw WilBoessen’s men winning.
- The last time these two met at the De Vliert, the hosts won the game 3-1.
- The home team has scored two or more goals in three of the last five meetings at this venue.
- 11 of the last 15 matches saw the team from ‘s-Hertogenbosch, finding the back of the net.
Den Bosch vs Volendam: Prediction
The Dragons are the best team in the league, with only Twente raising a challenge for that distinction. They are also quite a hard team to face at home. They have been unbeaten at home in their last nine attempts and won eight of them. Coupling this with the desperation the team is in, the win should go for the hosts.
WilBoessen’s men have scored in their last 19 home-ties in a row and registered two or more in six of their last seven. They also managed to do so in their last two h2h ties at home. In addition to this, the visitors have conceded in 21 of their last 22 matches on the road and were winless in 17 of their last 21 trips away from home.
It’s inferred that the Blue-White Dragons will register at least two goals.
