Venue: De Vijverberg (Doetinchem).
It’s life and death for these two teams. They are on either side of the relegation line, with just 12 more points remaining to play for. Graafschap needs to make up a difference of three points from the next set of games if they are to remain in the top division. They do have the home advantage in this tie, and that should count for something, as far as fans are concerned.
Emmen may be floating above the cut-off line for now, but disaster can happen any moment. It’d be wise for them to build a safety bed of points rather than risk their future with very few games remaining in the competition. These two teams also have conceded a total of 130 goals so far from their combined 60 games.
