ADO Den Haag vs Groningen Prediction & Match Preview

ADO Den Haag vs Groningen
Dutch Eredivisie
Date: Sunday, 20 September 2020
Kick-Off at 11.15 UK
Venue: Cars Jeans Stadion, Den Haag.

Sunday’s action in Dutch Eredivisie is starting in the capital where ADO Den Haag welcomes Groningen. Both teams are looking for the first points this season after getting defeated in the opening round last week.

When it comes to ambitions of these two squads overall, they are far from being similar – a spot in Europa League qualifiers would satisfy Groningen’s fans, while ADO would be happy with anything besides relegation really.

If the league wasn’t suspended in March, they would be members of Eerste Divisie today. In terms of the odds, bookies are favouring the visiting side at 2.05.

Four out of the last five h2h’s ended Under 2.5 FT, which rarely happens when it comes to Eredivisie matchups.

ADO Den Haag vs Groningen Prediction

Loss to PSV (1-3 FT) was pretty much expected for Groningen. This squad has underperformed heavily during the pre-season period, which raised a lot of alarms.

Groningen were unable to secure one single victory in the last four test matches against Almere City, Werder Bremen, NEC Nijmegen or Arminia Bielefeld. The previous campaign was concluded in 9th place with barely positive +1 goal difference. The team struggled with efficiency and it seems like that problem just got bigger during the summer.

ADO Den Haag are sharing the same problem – they were the least efficient team in the previous campaign, scoring only 25 goals in 26 matches. This said, it’s hard to picture a scenario with three goals or more on Sunday morning.
