The home side are on back to back league wins and they display one of the best defensive style of play in the league.

FC Emmen vs Volendam Prediction

Volendam is at top flight in Eerste Divisie with 63 points from 29 games. They won 18 times in the league while drawing on 9 and losing only twice. They have netted 64 goals in total while conceding a sum of 36 which shows their excellent attacking front but hints for an improvement in the defensive side.

The table leaders got humiliated in the previous fixture against Excelsior by 2-5. Wim Jonk’s men have found the back of the net 11 times in the course of their latest 6 matches. The total number of goals that have been scored against them during those matches adds up to 8.

On the contrary, Emmen resides just below them at the 2nd position on the table with 61 points. Of the 29 matches played, they won on 19 games while drawing on 4 and losing on 6 other occasions.

The hosts are on back to back victories against Jong PSV and Jong Utrecht. In their past 6 games, Dick Lukkien’s squad have managed to score a total of 11 times resulting in an average number of goals scored per match to be 1.83.

Even though the table toppers are unbeaten in their last 17 league matches away from home, their previous loss adds a lot of pressure. We feel that a home win is possible as the hosts won 71% of the games played at De Oude Meerdijk this season.
