FC Emmen vs Utrecht
Dutch Eredivisie
Date: Tuesday, 22 December 2020
Kick-Off at 17.45 UK
Venue: De Oude Meerdijk, Emmen.

Last-place team in Dutch Eredivisie Emmen have finally started playing better and achieved two draws and one victory in the last three outings. Can this positive trend continue on Tuesday night as they welcome Utrecht FC?

Visitors are having very disappointing campaign so far, sitting in 10th place with 13 points, miles behind any other Europa League contender.

Not only that, Utrecht are winless for eight divisional matches in a row. Despite that, bookies seem optimistic about putting that streak to an end. Away win is currently priced at 1.70 odds, which can hardly be called value in our opinion.

FC Emmen vs Utrecht Head-to-head

  • There were only four head to head duels between these teams in the past. Stats are tied at two victories each so far.

FC Emmen vs Utrecht Prediction

Emmen are still winless when it comes to Eredivisie, having eight losses and five draws so far. The only victory achieved this season happened recently in the cup against Groningen. Bijl and Jansen scored goals in the second half and scheduled encounter versus Heerenveen in the next round of KNVB Beker.

Last weekend squad held PEC Zwolle to a goalless draw despite being completely outplayed. The current record at this stadium is three draws, three losses and 9-17 goal difference.

As for their opposition, Utrecht are having massive troubles when it comes to efficiency. They bagged only 12 goals so far, which is way under the expectations. Moroccan striker Mimoun Mahi is the top goalscorer and arguably best player in the roster.

Utrecht scored only five goals in their six away days, while Fortuna scores 0.5 goals per home duel. Under 2.5 FT is a massive value bet in our opinion.
