Jong FC Utrecht vs Roda Prediction

Jong FC Utrecht failed to return to winning ways in their last clash on the road after Graafschap took them down with a narrow 2-1 scoreline. The hosts have now been recording back to back defeats in their past two matchups in the second division and have just one win to boast of from their previous five as well.

At the moment, the home team are sitting twelfth on the ladder with twenty-eight points to their name.

On the other hand, Roda have a lot of ground to make up and are currently ten points adrift of this foe. The guests are without a win in their past nine games in all competitions, the most recent of which was a 2-2 draw alongside Maastricht at home.

It is also worth mentioning that the visitors have not had a taste of success in the Eerste Divisie since their 4-2 win over Breda, back in October.

Furthermore, Roda have not been faring any better in their outings this season. Miserably, they have dropped points in nine of their last ten trips on the road.

In sharp contrast, the hosts have stumbled just once at home so far. As such, the win is more than likely to swing in favor of Jong FC Utrecht this week.

However, the home team have salvaged just a point in four of their previous seven games here. Taking into account that Roda have also shared the spoils five times already on the road, the safest punt in this one would have to be a Double chance.

Additionally, Jong FC Utrecht have looked lively in the final third, especially at home. Twenty-one of the thirty-one goals that they have scored so far have come from their clashes at this stadium.

Meanwhile, Roda have been far too easy to breach as of late in their outings. They have conceded no less than two goals in each of their past two trips on the road.

Taking into account that their last h2h meeting here was also a high scoring affair, expect over 2.5 goals on the scorecards, by all means, come Monday.
