Roda vs Telstar Predictions and Match Preview

Roda vs Telstar
Netherlands-Eerste Divisie.
Date: Friday, 23 November 2018
Kick-Off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Parkstad Limburg Stadion (Kerkrade).

Roda has not improved even after the relegation to Eerste Divisie this season. They are 10th in the table, with 6 wins and 5 defeats in 14 matches. The Miners have conceded more than what they scored this season. A win would possibly send them to 7th position depending on the performance of the teams above them.

In the last 6 matches they placed, they have 3 wins and a loss. That run has a 5 match unbeaten streak with 3 wins included. In 4 of the last 6 matches they played in all competitions, the final score was below 2.5 goals in total.

In the last 5 games they played at home in the league, they lost 2 and has only 1 win. Over 2.5 goals were scored in total in 4 of the last 6 home games in the league.

The away side also has an uneven form in their recent games. They have lost and won 3 of their 6 matches recently in the league. Over 2.5 goals were recorded at the final whistle in 7 games on the trot as well.

Away form needs to be improved, as they lost 4 of their previous 6 matches from all competitions. Over 2.5 goals came in 5 recent away matches on the trot. This run of poor form has got them the 14th spot in the table. They have lost 8 matches in their league season till now.

Like their opponents for Friday, they are also facing defensive problems. With more than half of the season to come, they have already given away 24 goals while scoring only 17.

Since both the teams are coming from defeats and only 3 points separating them, this match will be a close encounter for sure.
