Groningen vs RKC Waalwijk Prediction & Match Preview

Groningen vs RKC Waalwijk
Dutch Eredivisie
Date: Saturday, 12 December 2020
Kick-Off at 15.30 UK
Venue: Hitachi Capital Mobility Stadium, Groningen.

Even though the odds were against them, Groningen have returned from a trip to Alkmaar with three points. They managed to pull a comeback in that match and take advantage of red card received by AZ. Victory have pushed them up to the 6th position, and things could become even better with a potential win against RKC Waalwijk this Saturday.

Groningen are massive favorites for the win, currently priced at 1.44 odds. They definitely shouldn’t underestimate the opposition which won last two Eredivisie duels versus Twente FC and VVV Venlo. All in all, we should witness an interesting match.

Groningen vs RKC Waalwijk Head-to-head

Groningen’s results against top tier teams in the league are truly spectacular. They were the first to defeat the reigning champions Ajax Amsterdam, and they have pulled the same thing against AZ Alkmaar last week.

If only this team was consistent against weaker opposition, they would surely be a UCL spot candidate this season.

The main issue so far is low efficiency – Groningen scored only 13 goals in 11 matches, which is quite low for division like Eredivisie. Every other squad in top 8 positions has scored 20 times already.

RKC Waalwijk are doing much better than in the previous campaign which was suspended. From worst team in the league they managed to improve and collect 12 points so far. Beating Twente and VVV in the last two weeks is one hell of a surprise. Their streak ends on Saturday night in our opinion.
