Willem II vs PEC Zwolle Prediction

Willem were on the road the last match-day, and had taken on the second-placed team in the table, Alkmaar. Still, the guests managed to record a 1-3 comeback win, with all three goals coming in the second half.

Zwolle meanwhile, were at home, and were held to a high-scoring 3-3 draw by Utrecht, the prior game week.

As things stand this Sunday, Willem take the cake for being the stronger side. As mentioned earlier, they are currently in possession of the third spot in the table, which allows direct entry into the Europa League, and they have left the likes of PSV, Feyenoord (some of the best teams in the country) behind.

On top of that they have been allotted the home advantage, and they are taking on a team that are currently battling to avoid relegation. 

Zwolle have conceded the most number of goals in the competition, and they have lost eight of their total ten league fixtures away from home.

Moreover, Willem are on a run of eight unbeaten games, and remained so in 13 of their last 14. They had also won four of their last five home fixtures, and kept clean sheets in three of their preceding four games in front of the home crowd.

On the other hand, Zwolle are on a winless run of five matches, and had lost four of these. They also were winless in ten of their last twelve overall fixtures, and in 18 of their prior 23 match-ups away from home.

Zwolle also lost nine of their last thriteen away matches, and failed to score in six of their prior ten. 

Finally, Willem are on a four-game winning run against this opponent, and they scored two or more goals in five of the last six h2h battles. 

Taking into account all these convincing arguments, we are led to the conclusion that Willem are about to deliver a dominating win this Sunday.
