FC Groningen vs PEC Zwolle
2018/19 Dutch Eredivisie
Date: Sunday, 2nd September 2018
Kick off at 11:15 UK/ 12:15 CET
Venue: Euroborg (Groningen).

Groningen started the Dutch season off badly with a 5-1 loss at Vitesse and continued their bad form when they played at home against Willem II and lost that game 1-0. So last weekend they were really in need of a win and they got it at Graafschap by winning 1-0. It was a big win for the club but they still look destined to struggle this season.

Despite their start the bookmakers have made them the favourites to win this game as the team try to recover. Although they are shipping on average 2 goals a game.

Zwolle are currently bottom of the league and have lost all of their 3 games in a row. Their last game was an expected loss to PSV who are top but they only lost the game 2-1 and it was quite close in the end, however Zwolle has conceded 7 goals already.

FC Groningen vs PEC Zwolle: Prediction

It is still early in the season and even though Zwolle have been poor so far they have the team to cause the home side some problems.

The betting prices are very open because of this. What we do know is that both sides have a terrible defence this means that we should see goals, and the history of these fixtures also points to this. So our main bet will be to see 3 goals or more.
