FC Groningen vs PEC Zwolle Prediction & Match Preview

FC Groningen vs PEC Zwolle
Netherlands – Eredivisie
Date: Saturday, 21 September 2019
Kick-off at 18:45 UK / 19:45 CET
Venue: Euroborg (Groningen).

FC Groningen are without a win in their previous four games, the last of which was a 2-1 defeat on the road to Venlo. Despite initially leveling the scores in that latter clash, the squad conceded close to the end of regulation time and were forced to return empty-handed.

PEC Zwolle, on the other hand, have turned things around from their dismal opening losing streak and are unbeaten in their last three fixtures. The visitors’ thrashed six goals past Waalwijk in their last home game and were at the receiving end of just two in the process as well.

Considering that their last outing to the home of FC Emmen also ended in a 3-1 scoreline in their favor, FC Groningen certainly have their work cut for them in this one.

FC Groningen vs PEC Zwolle Head to head (h2h)

  • Three of their previous five clashes have seen PEC Zwolle clinch the win.

  • Half of their last six meetings have seen goals down each end.
  • Only one of their previous thirteen games have ended in a stalemate.

FC Groningen vs PEC Zwolle Prediction

The home team have been poor in all honesty, even with home advantage at hand and have been at the losing end in their last two games in a row.

Furthermore, the hosts have found the back of the net just twice so far on home soil, and have conceded five goals into their own net. Their foes for the week, however, tasted success in their previous trip on the road, that too by a very convincing 3-1 scorecard.

Taking into account that their last visit to this venue also saw them secure the bragging rights, PEC Zwolle are the favorites to come out on top.

However, three of their previous five meetings here have seen FC Groningen pick up all three points. Given that Zwolle have also lost two of their last three recent outings, the safest bet to place would have to be a double chance.

Additionally, the visitors have not been shy in racking up the goals tally and have scored two goals or more in their last three games in running. Taking into account that Groningen have not failed in getting their names on the scoresheet in their previous two home games either, expect over 2.5 goals on the scorecards by all means.
