The visitors also got off to a poor start, falling 2-3 at home to Heerenveen last weekend. Zwolle had a 11-minute back hole during which they allowed three goals in front of the home crowd. Interestingly, their two goals both came from the penalty-spot.

Johannes van ‘t Schip’s men thus ruined the positive momentum from pre-season friendlies when they bagged consecutive wins over Levante and RKC Waalwijk netting sic goals in the process.

Utrecht vs Zwolle: Head-to-head

We should really be in for goals here knowing that both teams were on the scoreline in each of last six head to head matches between these two sides.

Utrecht were more successful over the course of history winning 9 and losing only 4 of 19 encounters with the Bluefingers.

Utrecht won all of last four home games against PEC Zwolle and they picked up four points from last term H2H games.

Utrecht vs Zwolle: Prediction

The Bluefingers finished the last season in the top half of the league standings, but they were among the weakest travellers in the competition. Zwolle won 4 and lost 9 of 17 away matches in the league allowing as many as 34 goals along the way.

Given that Utrecht only lost 1 of 17 home ties in the regular season last year and that they defeated PEC Zwolle in each of last four H2H games at Stadion Galgenwaard, it’s hard to go past the home win pick at the odds of 1.66 here.

You can obviously back goals at both ends as well given that both teams concede loads in their opening round ties. Moving forward, each of last six H2H games saw the BTTS option “come in”.

Finally, you will hardly make a mistake backing Utrecht to net two or more goals on the occasion, a bet set at the odds of 1.61.
