Utrecht vs Groningen Prediction

Utreg is at the 7th spot on the standing with 40 points from 26 games. They won 11 times in the league while drawing on 7 and losing on 8 other occasions. They scored 43 in total while conceding a sum of only 33 up to this point.

FC Utrecht will be looking for an improved result after a 1-0 league loss in their previous game against PSV Eindhoven. They have been scored against on all of their previous 6 games, giving up 7 goals during that time

On the other hand, Groningen resides just below them at the 8th position on the table with 33 points. Of the 26 matches played, they won 8 games while drew and lost 9 matches each.

FC Groningen will go into this clash following an impressive 4-3 league win to beat NEC Nijmegen in their recent match. They have been a bit of a soft underbelly in defense as they have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 games, giving opposing sides 7 goals in total.

We envisage a home win as the hosts have not been beaten in the league by FC Groningen in their last 7 games while having not won at home since the last 2 league schedules. Meanwhile, Groningen won only 4 out of the 13 away fixtures played this season.
