FC Utrecht vs RKC Waalwijk Prediction

Following a four-match winning streak in all competitions, FC Utrecht have now alarming transitioned to admitting back to back defeats in their past two games. Their last clash at home saw them at the losing end of a 3-0 scorecard to AZ Alkmaar prior to which Ajax thrashed four unanswered goals past them on the road.

Be that as it may, with twenty-three points to their name, FC Utrecht are still holding on to a top-four spot.

On the other hand, RKC Waalwijk have been branded as the weakest side in the Eredivisie and for good reason. The visiting side have garnered no more than five points so far, and are six points away from their nearest foe on the ladder as well.

To pile on the misery, the guests have also admitted defeat in six of their last seven outings. The closest they came in picking up a win was a 3-3 draw against Twente, that too back in August.

It is also worth mentioning that FC Utrecht have made no mistake in securing the bragging rights in their last thirteen meetings with this foe here. With the hosts picking up the win by a two-goal margin or more in each of their past four home clashes as well, count on FC Utrecht to make light work of the visitors in this one.

Furthermore, as aforementioned, the home side have not been shy in racking up the goal-scoring charts at Stadion Galgenwaard. Impressively, they have found the back of the net fourteen times from their previous four clashes here.

Taking into account that RKC Waalwijk have also been getting their names on the scoresheet in their last two outings on the trot, expect goals to be abundance when the two sides square up against each other this Sunday.
