Graafschap vs Den Bosch
Netherlands – Eerste Divisie
Date: Monday, 31 August 2020
Kick-Off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: De Vijverberg (Doetinchem)
As the new season is set to start the home team will be looking to redeem themselves for the relegation. After getting demoted to the second tier, the Super Farmers will be looking to get back to the top as soon as possible. They will play their season opener against Den Bosch, who was fourth in Eerste Divisie last season.
The Blue White Dragons would have liked to start the new season at home. They have an inconsistent record in away matches especially towards the end of the last season. So against a team that is literally unbeatable in front of their home crowd, they will need something special for a win.
Graafschap vs Den Bosch: Head-to-head (h2h)

Graafschap vs Den Bosch: Prediction
The home team is unbeaten in more than ten home games. The last time they lost a competitive game was back in May 2019 against the champions Ajax. Also, they have a better record in head to head games against this opposition. I do not see them losing this one, since they are unbeaten in the last three meetings with Den Bosch across all grounds.
Another important trend that could be seen in their previous meetings is the number of goals scored. The majority of their games since the start of the last decade have more than 2.5 goals in total. In the majority of clashes at this ground, we can also see goals at both ends of the field. So I am backing a high scoring game with goals from both sides this Monday.
