FC Volendam vs Jong Utrecht
Netherlands- Eerste Divisie.
Date: Friday, 23 November 2018
Kick-Off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Kras Stadion (Volendam).
The Orange are 13th in the league table after 14 rounds are completed. They have 4 wins and losses each in those games and tend to draw more than they win. The team managed by Hans de Koning has conceded 19 goals; 2 more than what they scored.
His team has been great in the recent league matches. At present they are unbeaten in the last 8 matches in the league, half of them were wins. Over 2.5 goals were scored in total in 5 of those 8 matches. Also both the teams scored in the last 6 matches they played in.
They have won the last 2 home games in the competition and are currently unbeaten in 6 games played there. Over 2.5 goals were recorded at full-time in 4 of the last 5 home games in all competitions.
The away side finished 20th last season and are currently 18th after 14 matches. They have lost 9 games and have only 2 wins to go with it. It is no surprise that they are at this condition considering the number of goals they conceded. Robin Pronk’s team has conceded 36 goals which make them the worst defensive side in the whole league. This is twice the goals they scored.
After a 4 match losing streak in the league, they finally found a win against Jong Ajax in their last home match. In the last 7 games they played across all venues, the final score in total was over 2.5 goals. Both teams scored in all those matches too.
Pronk’s side has not won a single away match and 6 of their 7 away games this season saw a final score with more than 2.5 goals. So if they want to win, a better defensive show is necessary.
So we can expect a high scoring game this Friday, and maybe the hosts will get all 3 points.
FC Volendam vs Jong Utrecht: Head-to-head (h2h)

- The hosts have never lost this fixture at this particular venue.

FC Volendam vs Jong Utrecht: Prediction
Since both the teams are poor in defense we can expect goals at both ends. In the last 7 games that the visitors played both the teams found the target. Both of them scored in all the h2h played. So we can bet on both teams to score with 1.80 odd.
Volendam has never lost this fixture at their own home ground. Considering their 4 matches undefeated streak I don’t see the visitors winning this one. Since the visitors are not able to find a win in away matches we can place a bet on Volendam to win at both half-time and full-time with 1.80 odd.
