Utrecht vs Twente
Date: Sunday, 23 February 2020
Kick-Off at 11:15 UK
Venue: Stadion Galgenwaard.
Sunday’s Eredivisie action is starting at Galgenwaard where Utrecht’s fans are hoping to see another strong home performance against Twente FC.
Visitors have just returned to Eredivisie after spending some time in tier two league, and it seems like they are staying away from the top seven playoffs race.
That definitely can’t be said for Utrecht who are always hungry for European appearances.
Utrecht vs Twente: Head-to-head
These two opponents have met 57 times in the past and Twente FC have big 26-15 lead in terms of victories.
Team from Enschede was victorious in the first meeting this season too, beating Utrecht 3-1 FT.
Interestingly, hosts were victorious in five out of last six h2h games between Utrecht and Twente.
Utrecht vs Twente: Prediction
Winning 35 points in 22 games is not considered as successful campaign so far for Utrecht. Van den Brom’s team is in a fine form though, securing three victories in the last five matches.
Two of those were in the national cup against Go Ahead Eagles 4-1 and Eindhoven 2-1. Eredivisie games include 1-1 draws against Willem II and VVV. The only victory in the domestic league came at this stadium against ADO Den Haag.
As for their opponents, Twente have caused a big upset during the last weekend in front of home fans by beating AZ Alkmaar.
However, there is a massive difference on stats how this team performs at home and away. They won only 9 points in 11 games on the road, while that number at their turf is 18.
Utrecht have high win rate at this stadium in the last couple of years. They are also trying to secure one of the Europa League positions this season.
Twente are not involved into relegation battles yet and not feeling pressured that much. We are going to tip home victory to nil’ for the primary bet.
Under 2.5 FT is going to be the alternative choice, mainly because we don’t expect much from visitors offensively.
Utrecht vs Twente: Bet Tips
Home win to nil @ 2.62
Under 2.5 Goals @ 2.35.
