Go Ahead Eagles vs Almere City FC
Netherlands – Eerste Divisie
Date: Friday, 18th January 2019
Kick-off at 19.00 UK/ 20.00 CET
Venue: De Adelaarshorst (Deventer).
After their fantastic run at the start of the season, the Eagles have slipped to the fourth position in the league table. Though just four points stand in their way from becoming the topper of the competition, in the months succeeding the last summer, fans of the club really thought their team might run away with the title.
Ally cannot shake off the bad form that has tied itself around their necks and looks stumped as tough fixtures await them in the next few weeks, starting with this one. They are on a run of four consecutive losses, and seven consecutive winless ties.
There is a lot to gain for either of the groups from a win in this match. John Stegeman’s men can put themselves in the mix for the title once more and their counterparts can get into the playoff zone.

Go Ahead Eagles vs Almere City FC Prediction
In the entire history of head-to-head games, never once has a game ended goalless. In fact, the last six meetings at this venue had three goals or more, and five of those six had four goals or more.
Also, the team captained by Jeroen Veldmate has never failed to find the back of the net against this rival, while being cheered on by the home crowd. The bunch of players also will be eager to get back to the top of the table after the fine run they had at the beginning of the tournament.
Coupled with these observations, consider the fact that, in ten of their last ten home-ties, the hosts for this match, scored two or more goals. I think it’s safe to assume that we will witness the return to glory of the Eagles in this game.
Expect at least a goal from them in the first half itself, and a total of two or more team goals in the game.
