Date: Thursday, 19 November 2020
Kick-off at 17:45 UK/ 18:45 CET
Venue: Rabobank IJmond Stadion.
The Sheep Heads are the absolute worst team in the competition, and they deservedly are placed dead last in the table. They have scored a total of eight goals so far (least in the league), and have conceded the most as well.
They also have secured a total of just one win so far all through this campaign, and have a 100% losing record on the road this season.
Meanwhile, the White Lions have been a far better team, and are chasing a spot in the top-eight of the table, so as to get included in the playoffs for promotion to the Dutch top flight.
Moreover, they also do have a great h2h record over the years against this rival.
Likely, expect Telstar to post the three points on the board this Thursday.
