Netherland – Eerste Divisie
Date: Friday, 28 August 2020
Kick-off at 17:45 UK/ 18:45 CET
Venue: Sportcomplex Zoudenbalch (Utrecht).
Jong FC Utrecht will host FC Eindhoven in the opening match of the new season, Eerste Divisie. With their advantage at home, the host will probably make the visit a hard one for the Blue-Whites.
Utrecht Reserves had 38 points from their 29 appearances in the campaign last season. Meanwhile, Eindhoven was behind them with 4 points less in the table.
But the Blue-White’s four-game unbeaten streak towards the league end outplays the double loss Rene Hake’s boys had at the end of their last season schedule in the campaign.
The host had their previous encounter at home, which they lost 1-2 to the likes of Nijmegen in the league. And the visitor will be on the back of a 2-2 draw at home against FC Oss last time out.
