They have been on the receiving end in 6 of the 7 competitive games they were involved in this season, this includes the KNVB cup loss at home to Twente on Thursday. Losing to a lower division side in the cup game rubbed more pain to their injury but they will now focus on survival in the Eredivisie.

The only exception for Groningen so far this season is the 1-0 win away from home against De Graafschap. Besides that, they have been poor and also find it difficult to create or convert chances.

They are the least scoring side with 3 goals but have conceded 13 goals and 15 in all competitions. They need to address these issues if they are to start getting results and avoid dropping down this season.

On the other hand, Utrecht are just slightly better than their host, with a win and 2 draws in the games played. However, they excelled in the mid-week cup with a 2-0 win in a game filled with drama in the later stage.

The game featured 2 red cards 1 each for both sides a goal from spot kick and a 95th minute goal. All these happened after the half hour mark as the fans were more entertained in the second half of the game.

Utrecht fans hopes this easier Sunday fixture will help them halt their winless streak in the league.

Groningen vs Utrecht: Head to Head

The previous 58 meetings between these two sides have seen Groningen win 18 times while Utrecht has 26 wins.

Utrecht have won 3 of their last 6 meetings, lost twice to Groningen and drawn once which was their last meeting.

Groningen vs Utrecht: Prediction

This will be a tough game, with none of the two sides seen as favorites. Groningen are still searching for a home win also Utrecht have also not win away from home this season.

Both teams have poor attacking quality and the game might be bored to the fans with few or no goals. But considering Utrecht are slightly better in performance, we back them for a double chance.
