Eindhoven vs Helmond
Netherlands- Eerste Divisie.
Date: Friday, 23 November 2018
Kick-Off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Jan Louwers Stadion (Eindhoven).
A 3 match losing streak in the league was broken by the Blue-Whites in their last games against Dordrecht. That match ended 3-0 in their favor. In the last 6 league games, they lost 3 and won twice as well. Over 2.5 goals were scored in 3 of those matches.
At home, they are winless in the previous 6 matches, of which 4 were defeats. Under 2.5 goals came in 4 of those games as well. So they are struggling to get 3 points even in front of their home crowd.
With this performance, they are 16th in the table. They have 8 losses and 3 wins in their 14 matches so far. Also, the defense has conceded 18 goals, which is more than what they have scored the entire season.
The away side are much similar to their opponents for Friday as far as recent form is concerned. They have not won a single match this season and lost 13 of their 14 games so far. Their major drawback is their defense, who gave away 27 goals already.
In the last 5 league games across all venues, Helmond is without a win. The final score had over 2.5 goals in 3 of those 5 games also. The away form is also not much better. They are on a 2 match drawing streak in games on the road and have lost 3 of their last 5 matches as well.
So this match can be considered as a clash between equals. There are chances for both teams to win and both of them may find the target as well on Friday.
