Venue: Mande Makers Stadion.

RKC Waalwijk’s fans have waited so long to watch elite football matches at Mandemakers Stadion on a weekly basis.

The squad has returned to Eredivisie last year, but judging by the results so far, chances of dropping to Eerste Divisie are high.

RKC Waalwijk vs Zwolle: Head-to-head

Zwolle demolished and dominated RKC in the last two meetings. The most recent one, played in September 2019 ended 6-2 in their favour.

Nine out of the last ten head to head encounters have ended either BTTS or Over 2.5 which should be useful info for the goals market.

RKC Waalwijk vs Zwolle: Prediction

Lions are hammered to the bottom of the table with 11 points from 21 games, which means they will need one hell of a streak to get back to the safe zone.

Match against Zwolle who are in a similar situation is a good place to start building confidence. Still, hosts are underdogs in eyes of bookies priced at 2.82 to win this encounter.

Zwolle have underperformed in this campaign as well. Many believed this roster can repeat the success from 2018 and earn Europa League participation ticket. That is definitely not going to happen this time. PEC are just a couple of positions above RKC, having won 21 points.

Eight losses on the road are one of the main reasons for such poor placement, as well as awful defending. Home backs should pay a lot of attention to Iranian striker Ghoochannejhad who bagged six goals so far.

RKC are unable to compete with any other Eredivisie team with this roster in our opinion. Away win at 2.40 odds is a nicely wrapped betting present.

Tradition says duels between these two are always full of goals. Over 2.5 is a nice banker bet for this occasion.

RKC Waalwijk vs Zwolle: Bet Tips

  • Away win @ 2.40
  • Over 2.5 FT @ 1.60.
