Roda vs FC Den Bosch Prediction
Roda is in a tough spot right now with their previous 13 fixtures in all major competitions ending in winless notes in their schedule. They have a gap of almost three months since their last win and the prior clash.
The Miners were on the road in their previous encounter with FC Oss. Both teams stuck to their defense ending the clash in a goalless draw. Also, the host has encountered 7 losses within the 13 winless fixtures.
Besides, the punters would want to go with Roda as they have the home ground advantage. However, Jean-Paul de Jong and his men have not achieved much glory at their own turf. The host is winless in their past five home matches in the league.
Along with that, Roda has won only three of their 12 league attempts at home. Even though their recent three losses have come against the top part teams, they haven’t fared well against bottom level teams too.
On the contrary, the punters can rely on Den Bosch to get something out of the match. Bosch has been on a good run lately with just two losses in the last ten clashes. Their previous encounter with AZ Alkmaar reserves gave a 3-0 clean sheet home win for Bosch.
The Blue-White Dragons have kept a good record in their overall fixtures. Even so, they have encountered some problems during their away games.
The visitor has lost only three of the last ten away fixtures in major contests. But Den Bosch has marked only two wins in the remaining seven unbeaten games on the road.
In the league, Erik van der Ven and boys have lost only two of the prior five fixtures.
Considering these facts, the punters can choose the visitors as the favorites to win in the clash. Even with their home ground advantage, Roda seems to be not in good shape. Hence, Den Bosch can make the best use of the host’s poor form in the match.
However, Bosch has recorded more draws than wins in their away streak. Hence, the chances of a draw in the match are also alive. So, it is safer for the punters to go with a double chance in the game.
