Utrecht vs NAC Breda Predictions and Match Preview

Utrecht vs NAC Breda
Dutch Eredivisie
Date: Friday, 5th October 2018
Kick-off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stadion Galgenwaard (Utrecht).

Two of the early strugglers in the Eredivisie will clash at Stadion Galgenwaard on Friday night as they both hope to get hood results this weekend.

Both sides have only managed just a win the 7 league games played so far this season and failed to win the other 6 games. Utrecht have a bit better record than their visitors, with 3 draws and 3 defeats added to their 1 win to give 6 points.

The win was in the Matchday 2 at home against Zwolle, they have drawn games against VVV, Fortuna Sittard and Groningen last weekend. They were a bit out of luck last week away at Groningen as they couldn’t hold on to the 1 goal lead, giving it up in the 76th minute.

They led Groningen from 16th minute and later had Gustafson sent off in 66th minute which contributed in them not winning that goal. We expect them to grab their second win at home his weekend.

Meanwhile NAC have been so unfortunate this season so far. They are lying on the foot of the table with 3 points as the win in Matchday 2 has been their only positive result so far his season.

NAC Breda has lost 6 of the 7 games played this season so far, failing to score in 5 of these games. They have the worst defense having conceded the most goals 19. Last weekend they conceded 2 goals without reply at home against leaders PSV and we can’t see them winning Utrecht this weekend.

Utrecht vs NAC Breda: Prediction

The game is a tough one to call but we still have to give it Utrecht who have performed better in the games played. They have conceded lesser goals than any other team in the second half of the table. Both sides have scored few goals this Eredivisie season so we are expecting low scoring affair.
