Jong FC Utrecht vs Helmond Sport Prediction
The hosts won 4 of their 10 games so far, but lost the other 6. Yet they are in a good spot after wins over Roda (2-0) and Dordrecht (3-0) in the previous 2 rounds.
Helmond Sport have managed to pick up some points in the latest rounds as well as they are unbeaten in 3 as they defeated Excelsior 2-1 last time followed by back-to-back draws against MVV Maastricht and the inform Nijmegen.
Therefore, it is fair to say that this will be a closely fought battle and the full-time result can go in anyone’s favour. This is why we are making picks from the goal markets and btts stand out as the best choice with the last three h2h here ending 1-1.
