Jong Utrecht vs Waalwijk Predictions and Match Preview

Jong FC Utrecht vs RKC Waalwijk
Netherlands- Eerste Divisie.
Date: Monday, 28th January 2019.
Kick-Off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Sportcomplex Zoudenbalch (Utrecht).

Jong Utrecht is just the opposite of their seniors in the top tier. After losing 13 games the reserves are at the bottom of their league table while their first team is 6th in Eredivisie. Manager Robin Pronk is definitely in the hot seat as his boys are not able to produce results this season.

Currently, his team is on a 3 match losing streak in the league which is not a surprise. At home, they are fresh from a defeat to Jong AZ. That loss came after a 3 match unbeaten run in front of the home crowd. Both the sides scored in the last 6 matches they played at home and 5 of those had over 2.5 goals.

Waalwijk is on a winning spree recently, which helped them onto the 10th place in the table. They have conceded more than what they scored all season. At present they have an active 2 match winning run across all venues.

Away from home, they have been losing games at frequent intervals. Apart from 4 wins all the remaining 6 games of the last 10 matches on the road have been losses. So Fred Grim must be careful that his team does not lose points against weaker opposition in away games.

  • Both teams have a win each in the 2 h2h meetings at this ground.

Jong Utrecht vs Waalwijk: Prediction

Nothing separates the two teams as far as h2h stats are concerned. It is hard to decide an exact winner in this contest because both have been inconsistent so far. But when we compare the away from of Waalwijk with the home form of the hosts, the latter is far better. So I hope the visitors will win this game with 1.50 odds.

In 7 of the last 9 home matches of the hosts, both sides found the target. Waalwijk has scored in 7 of their previous 10 away games as well. Thus we can expect both the sides to score on Monday and bet on the same with 1.60 odds.
