Both teams were at the lower middle of the table in the last season of Eredivisie. The host team at the fifteenth place had a close call with getting relegated. The visitors were not that better as they were near at the eleventh position on the table charts.
The host’s first game was against Groningen in this season. The match ended with a goal to nil for the latter team. Having suffered that loss, the hosts played against the giants Ajax. They were demolished by the champions with a 5-0 scoreline.
The visitors started off better than that in their new campaign. They dominated both halves of their first encounter with four goals to nil against Heracles. The visitors converted four out of six shots on goal in their first game. The second match was tied with Feyenoord when they missed an early penalty chance in the game.
