Hat-trick from Jonathan Okita helped the away side to win in the same fixture back in April this year.

Furghill Zeldenrust is the only player to find form for them this season. He has 4 goals in 10 caps for Rob Alflen’s side.

The travelling side are playing under Ron Elsen. The Sterrendragers have an unlikely source of goals this season in defender Joeri Schroijen. His brace helped them to draw the match against Jong PSV in the last round.

Helmond Sport vs MVV Maastricht: Prediction

With a home record like Helmond nobody will possibly back them to win this game. The team coached by Alflen are at the same position where they ended up last season.

The home fans have no hope of promotion in the near future. Eredivisie is still a class above Alflen and team.

The visitors will enjoy possession like they did in their previous game and will win more corners also.

If no miracles are to take place on Friday the away side will possibly take 3 points with them when they leave Helmond.
