Big relegation battle continues among seven Eredivisie teams. After being winless for six straight matches team PEC Zwolle have finally won three points in a duel against Excelsior last week.
That helped them a lot in terms of standings, pushing to 12th place four points behind the relegation zone teams. They are facing another table strugglers this Sunday in front of the home crowd.
Emmen are hoping to put an end to black series of their own (winless for six games straight) and increase chances to avoid relegation.
Even though the difference on the table is almost minimal, bookmakers have marked home team as massive favorites for the win at 1.57 odds.
This is even more confusing after taking a look at the stats. Zwolle played 13 games at this stadium, won only 3 while losing 7. Keeping the net intact is a mission impossible for this team, as they allowed 25 goals in the mentioned duels.
As for their opponents, Emmen are not doing well on the road, but they are not worst team in the league when it comes to this segment as well. The team won 4 and lost 7 matches.

PEC Zwolle vs FC Emmen: Prediction
Quality is definitely on the side of home team, but that can’t be said for the current form as both squads are struggling. 1.57 on home win are not enough for the risk in our opinion. Going with home win HT and FT but with smaller stake is probably best way to approach the fixture.
As for the goals market, Zwolle to score a goal in both halves (visitors are awful at defending) is our primary selection.
