ADO Den Haag vs PEC Zwolle
Date: Friday, 15 February 2019
Kick-Off at 19:00 UK / 20:00 CET
Venue: Cars Jeans Stadion (Den Haag).
PEC Zwolle continued their fine spell of form at the start of the year last weekend when they held Heerenveen to a 1-1 draw away at Abe Lenstra Stadion.
Bluefingers thus won three and drew one of four league matches in 2019. It is a phenomenal record if we know the opposition cane in the likes of Feyenoord, Heracles, Utrecht and Heerenveen in the process.
The famous Manchester United center back Jaap Stam was the main catalyst for such rise in Zwolle’s form. He completely turned team’s fortunes around since taking charge in December. Winter’s acquisition Lennart Thy is also a terrific addition to outfit’s attacking line. He bagged one goal in four appearances, but his presence on the pitch is of a huge importance for Zwolle.
Bluefingers should have a great chance to keep such hot run of form going on Friday night when they travel to Cars Jeans Stadion to battle bottom-half rivals Den Haag in the first fixture of the 22nd round.
Den Haag vs Zwolle: Head-to-head
PEC Zwolle have a much better head to head record historically, but they lost last two encounters with The Hague.
Den Haag bagged an impressive seven-goal tally in last two clashes with Bluefingers.
Three or more goals were scored in four of past five H2H meetings.
Den Haag vs Zwolle: Prediction
Den Haag’s defense revealed plenty of holes once again on Sunday when Alfons Groenendijk’s troops fell 3-2 away at relegation-threatened Emmen. Such lack of meticulousness in Den Haag’s back line will be the music to the ears of van Duinen, van Crooij and Thy who make a deadly attacking trio for Zwolle.
The away win is well worth backing at 2.80 odds, while we’d also suggest Zwolle to net two or more goals on the evening at the odds of 2.25. The visitors notched ten goals in four league matches after the winter break.
