The hosts have led at half time just twice this season. The visitors meanwhile have scored 10 of their total 18 goals this season within the first half. Hence they are most likely to have the lead at halftime.

The teams have the 2nd and 4th least goal tally by any team in the Eredivisie this season. With such weak attacking prowess of the teams involved and taking their h2h record into consideration, the fixture may not see more than 2 goals.
