TOP Oss vs FC Eindhoven
Dutch Eerste Divisie
Date: Friday, 2 November 2018
Kick-Off at 19:00 UK / 20:00 CET
Venue: Frans Heesen Stadion (Oss).
Oss continued to play hot and cold as a magnificent 1-5 win over NEC was followed by a disappointing KNVB Beker elimination to a third-division opponent AFC on Wednesday. The defeat was even more surprising if we know the head coach Klaas Wels sent practically the strongest squad possible featuring his two star men Bryan Smeets and Huseyin Dogan from the first minute. This duo combined the total of 12 goals in 11 Eerste Divisie rounds, but they failed to deliver against the lower-division opposition in the cup.
Can TOP find the way to rebound from such defeat and to keep the push for the promotional play-offs in the league? They climbed up to 6th place after a huge victory over direct top-half rivals NEC. Smeets was the one who stole the show by bagging a brace seven days ago, while Dogan was also on the scoresheet taking his league tally to 7. Oss will have a nice chance to make it back-to-back league wins here against the 17th-placed Eindhoven at their Frans Heesen Stadion.
TOP Oss vs FC Eindhoven: Head-to-head
Oss can rely on the head to head record against Eindhoven in recent years.
TOP won three and drew one of past four meetings with Blauw-Witten.
Each of last four head to head affairs produced goals at both ends.
Four or more goals were seen in four of last six head to head outings.
TOP Oss vs FC Eindhoven: Prediction
We have to say Eindhoven had quite complicated schedule in the last couple of weeks. They stunned NEC Nijmegen 0-1 on the road, but went on to claim just a point from following two games against Volendam and Den Bosch.
David Nascimento’s men come into this as underdogs, but you should be careful with the stakes here given they’ve already made some upsets so far in the season.
Based on both form and head to head stats, we will go for the home win as the main betting option. The alternative bet would be Under 3.5 goals FT as Eindhoven kept three clean sheets in last five away matches in the league.
