FC Volendam vs Helmond Sport
Netherlands – Eerste Divisie
Date: Friday, 15th February 2019
Kick-off at 19.00 UK/ 20.00 CET
Venue: Kras Stadion (Volendam).
Palingboeren’s brave march to the top tier of the table had to take a minor detour owing to tough fixtures against the likes of Eindhoven, and Sparta Rotterdam. But the course looks like to be resumed this Friday, as one of the weakest teams in the competition comes visiting them.
Rob Alflen’s men have already given up on getting something out of this miserable season and just wants it to end. Their attitude has cost them a lot, as certain matches witnessed the team dropping points, or losing, from good positions, due to their refusal to grind out results, or sweat for favorable outcomes.
The Other Oranje needs to take advantage of this gift of a fixture and get their momentum back.

FC Volendam vs Helmond Sport Prediction
Het Andere Oranje was unbeaten in six of their last seven games, and in eight of their last ten home-ties. They will be extra motivated, as the team stands just four points away from placing themselves in the playoff positions. The visitors, who hold the distinction of having scored the least number of goals in the league, and in away ties, will just buoy their already lifted spirits. Also, take into account that these guests have not won a single official match on the road this season.
In fact, even including friendlies, the team has won just two of their last 23 road trips, also conceding in 21 of these games. Furthermore, when the domination of Palingboeren in h2h ties is taken into account, it can be said without doubt that the hosts have a huge chance of converting this tie into three points. And I expect them to deliver.
They won’t leave this to chance or take things lightly. Anticipate them to lead at halftime itself.
