RKC Waalwijk vs FC Utrecht
Date: 2 April 2022, Saturday
Kick-off at 19:00 UK / 20:00 CET
Venue: Mandemakers Stadion (Waalwijk).
FC Utrecht sacked Rene Hake after a 1-3 defeat to FC Groningen in the previous round.
Rick Kruys will be in the interim manager role and he is about to make his debut on the team’s bench on Saturday evening when FC Utrecht travel to Mandemakers Stadion for the 28th round clash against RKC Waalwijk.
FC Utrecht took only one point from the previous three rounds. They well deserved more from each of these games, especially the aforementioned 1-3 loss to FC Groningen against whom they looked to be the better team on the pitch two weeks ago.
FC Utrecht are still inside the top-seven in the Eredivisie standings and they will be looking to stay there with a turn in form.
Next up for them are RKC Waalwijk who have been playing hot and cold throughout the whole campaign.
However, RKC Waalwijk managed to claim four huge points from the previous two league clashes against the likes of Heerenveen and Vitesse.
Joseph Oosting’s troops are now five points above Fortuna Sittard who hold the relegation playoffs spot.
It is worth noting that RKC Waalwijk notched just one goal in the last three league games on the home patch.
Since Utrecht have lost just one of the last five away outings in Eredivisie, we would not be surprised to see the visitors getting a result on the new-manager-bounce this weekend.
