RKC Waalwijk’s struggles to escape the last spot on Eredivisie continues. It is almost certain this team will be heading back to Eerste Divisie after winning only 12 points in 24 games so far.
They are also holding the most negative goal difference record in the league, so hopes and expectations from the upcoming clash against Utrecht are low.
Visitors are aiming to end the regular part of the season in the top seven positions and take a shot in Europa League playoffs. So far they are doing good work and causing a lot of troubles to top tier teams.

RKC Waalwijk vs Utrecht Prediction
If there were no many injured players for the visitors we would suggest Utrecht to win HT and FT instantly. St Jago, Adrian Dalmau, Van Rooijen, Paes and Janssen are all sidelined and won’t make an appearance on Sunday.
As for Utrecht’s record away from home, this team is not losing matches that often, only three out of 12.
Their recent form is looking intimidating too. Utrecht has won three out of the last five matches across competitions while losing none. The win rate against teams from the bottom half of the table is high.
RKC Waalwijk has failed to score one single goal in the last four games, losing three of them. We don’t see them stopping Utrecht from winning this match. They have an average of one goal scored in front of home fans per game, so away win & BTTS could be a decent alternative.
