Helmond Sport vs Cambuur
Netherlands – Eerste Divisie
Date: Friday, 18th January 2019
Kick-off at 19.00 UK/ 20.00 CET
Venue: Lavans stadion (Helmond).
The Yellow-Blues really messed up a great opportunity for them to get into the upper echelons of the league table after a string of misfiring matches in recent weeks. They come into this game on top of a high-scoring draw with Sparta Rotterdam. The six-goal thriller saw either team scoring three each.
After the half time ended 2-2, the goal in the 78th minute really seemed like would clinch the win for Cambuur, but two minutes from the final whistle, Sparta hit back with an equalizer to make the score 3-3.
Along with Rene Hake’s men, the club from Helmond too is looking for their first win in 2019. Both teams have had similar results in the run-up to this game.

Helmond Sport vs Cambuur Prediction
Neither team has the luxury to be complacent or play for a draw in this tie. The situation demands action, and that is what the viewers will get this Friday. Both teams will play attacking football right from the beginning, and in all likelihood, it will lead to a goal in the first half itself.
Sport has recorded just two wins in their last 23 outings on the pitch and just four in their last 31. The period of mid-August to late-November saw the team go through 16 matches in a row without a win. Also, in their last 11 attempts at home, they could register only two wins.
It’s safe to assume that the visiting Yellow-Blues will win at least one half.
