TOP Oss vs Jong Utrecht
Netherlands – Eerste Divisie
Date: Friday, 28 February 2020
Kick-Off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Heesen Yachts Stadion (Oss).
The Utrecht reserves have been poor this season compared to their seniors who are in the top 10 of the Eredivisie. Last season Jong Utrecht finished 19th in the table and this time around they may finish higher. They gained momentum coming into this game with a win over FC Volendam who is in the fourth position.
FC Oss is going from bad to worse, as they are third from the bottom. They are without a win in the league since the triumph over Cambuur in early January. In their last 10 competitive matches, they have won only twice. One of them was in the Cup against Katwijk on penalties.

- FC Oss is without a win in their last 5 league fixtures.
- Both sides scored in the last 7 league games of Jong Utrecht.
TOP Oss vs Jong Utrecht: Prediction
This is a match between equals in terms of performance. The hosts have only 3 wins in their 10 previous home fixtures both in league and Cup. Similarly, the visitors have not won away from home since October 2019. They have not won 8 games since then of which 6 were defeats. So this may go down to the wire and the hosts will just escape with a narrow win. So I am backing a Double Chance for either the home team winning or the match ending as a draw.
Although they keep losing away from home, Utrecht has scored in 4 away games on the trot. Previous 5 home matches of Oss had over 2.5 goals and most of those won by them. The same trend can be seen in the last 3 away matches of the visitors as well. Since both teams are poor in defense we can place our money on a scoreline with over 2.5 goals in this upcoming game.
