Helmond Sport vs FC Dordrecht
Netherlands – Eerste Divisie
Date: Friday, 8th February 2019
Kick-off at 19.00 UK/ 20.00 CET
Venue: LavansStadion (Helmond).
It’s time for the little boys to play. Two of the weakest teams in the league take on each other in this Eerste Divisie fixture.
The bottom tier of the league is really seeing the after effects of eliminating relegation for the season. The last four groups are really enjoying their one season without pressure, and complacency has crept up in their midst due to the lack of competitive spirit.
Both sides are going through winless streaks, and fans hope the players will try to put an end to it, knowing that they have got an opponent of their stature. The teams better show up with intent, because they are surely not getting many chances like this where they would be able to fight on equal terms.

Helmond Sport vs FC Dordrecht Prediction
Scott Calderwood, despite the awesome name he possesses, has failed to inspire any sign of greatness in his team. Disregarding their win against Jong AZ, another bottom-tier team, the last time they won a league game on the road, was in March of last year.
They have conceded the most number of goals in the whole league, except for Jong AZ and Jong Utrecht. They were winless in 22 of their last 26 games, and in 12 of their last 13 away ties. There’s little chance that their nets will be kept clean till the halftime whistle.
The team from Noord-Brabant aren’t saints either, in the case of goals conceded. 22 of their last 24 games witnessed the opposing players celebrating a goal. So did 15 of their last 18 home-ties. At point or another, the hosts are going to concede this Friday.
