Kowet had won just a couple of games until the end of September. They have improved their results since. Which sees them sitting in the 8th position with 20 points. Considering they have never finished above 12th in the Eredivisie, this is impressive.
Twente has struggled against top teams. Losing just once against a team outside the top half of the table. Following the 3 winless games at the start, they went 6 games without a defeat. Consequently, the team is currently 7th in the table, 11 points behind Ajax.
Go Ahead Eagles vs Twente Prediction
This match could go either way. Betting on the result of this game might prove costly. Alternatively, I had backed BTTS as the hosts have scored in 5 of their last 6 home games and the visitors have scored in 5 straight away games.
Ricky van Wolfswinkel has been impressive for Twente who is the team’s highest scorer and among the top scorers list in the league. Backing the Dutch forward who has 8 goal contributions to score anytime is not a bad shout.
