Dutch Eerste Divisie
Date: Friday, 14 February 2020
Kick-Off at 19:00 UK

Thirteen rounds remain in this year’s edition of Dutch Eerste Divisie. This time we have three serious candidates to earn direct promotion to the top flight. One of them, Volendam host Telstar on Friday night any anything besides home victory would be considered as an upset.

Volendam vs Telstar: Head-to-head

  • These two teams have met 43 times in the past and Volendam have 20-13 lead in terms of victories.
  • Eight out of the last ten head to head encounters ended either Over 2.5 FT or with both teams scoring.
  • Volendam have won the first meeting this season 2-1 FT.

Volendam vs Telstar: Prediction

Home squad is currently 4th with 50 points, just one behind the 2nd spot. They have very high win rate at this stadium of 66%, while losing only one game.

Telstar are going through huge defensive crisis right now, so truth be told, their chances to escape Kras Stadion with a point or three are not that great.

Telstar were outplayed and humiliated on Monday night match against NEC, losing it 7-1 in front of the home crowd. That is the worst defeat in club’s recent history. Just before that, Telstar also lost to Almere 4-2.

Conceding 11 games in two official games is surely not a great sign. They are not far away from the playoffs line though, sitting in 10th place with 36 points.

Volendam are surely super-motivated to keep up with the top two teams. Their most recent form is red-hot, having won four out of the last five Eerste Divisie games while scoring high number of goals. We don’t see Telstar getting a point here. Home win is the bet, while more adventurous punters can also go for HT/FT pick.

Considering the current shape of visiting defenders, Volendam to score in both halves at 2.10 is a decent alternative.

Volendam vs Telstar: Bet Tips

  • Home win @ 1.50
  • Volendam to score in both halves @ 2.10.
