Willem II vs Groningen
Netherlands – Eredivisie
Date: Thursday, 14 January 2021
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Konig Willem II Stadion (Tilburg).
Willem II is closer to the ultimate bottom of the table this season. The host has been winless for the past six clashes in their league schedule, following a 2-1 loss on the road against Venlo last time out. They have picked up only 9 points from 2 wins and 3 draws in their 15 appearances so far this season in the campaign.
Groningen lost their flair as of late with two winless games in a row. This came on the back of a three-game winning streak in the campaign. So, we can expect the visitor to make a comeback against a weaker side like the host. They shared the spoils on the road with Utrecht in a 2-2 scoreline last time out.
Willem II vs Groningen Head-to-head (h2h)

Willem II vs Groningen Prediction
The match is sizing to be an away win in full-time, but we cannot completely rely on Groningen to make the home run in ninety minutes. The visitor has been winless for the past two league clashes, which indicates a dip in form after winning three games in a row.
Since they have problems at the back, it is safer to assume that Willem will find an open door somewhere in the fixture. However, the host is not likely to keep a lead until the final whistle, as they are in a much worse condition in the league. This points to a BTTS in the encounter and at 1.70 odds, it is likely to yield decent returns.
The away team is the closest to taking all three points. Since they have exhibited a dip in form, the double chance favoring Groningen will probably be the best bet for the punters. Besides, Willem II is 18 points behind the traveling side on the table, as it stands this season.
