RKC Waalwijk vs Almere City FC
Netherlands – Eerste Divisie
Date: Friday, 15th February 2019
Kick-off at 19.00 UK/ 20.00 CET
Venue: Mandemakers Stadion (Waalwijk).
Two words to describe the visitors for this tie. Dead meat.
After losing four of their last six trips, the team next takes a hike to try their hand at battling Rooms Katholieke. The set of players have been unable to keep even a clean sheet in the last five months in away ties. Their position in the league table might tell another story, but the newly revamped Waalwijk has been breaking set equations for the last several match-days.
Fred Grim has put the fear of God into his players, and they sure have responded well. The team has not even drawn a single game since January, winning every single one of their attempts. The team has been especially strong at home, causing wreckage out of their visitors.
The fans feel like the group should have started their charge earlier, which would have likely resulted in them targeting even the title. But better late than never. A spot in the playoffs is easily achievable, and that target should be prioritized.
RKC Waalwijk vs Almere City FC Head-to-head (h2h)

RKC Waalwijk vs Almere City FC Prediction
Fred Grim’s men have won their last six games in a row. They have also scored two or more goals in all of these matches. At home, they have won five of their last six attempts, while scoring two or more in four. Their opposite number, meanwhile, were winless in nine of their last eleven ties, and in 13 of their last 17. Of these 17, ten were losses.
On the road, the team failed to secure three points in eight of their last ten trips. In their last four away ties alone, the squad conceded 14 goals. Also, take into account that h2h ties have predominantly favored the home-team.
Doubtlessly, Rooms Katholieke, with their added home advantage, is going to take the win and will lead at halftime too.
