PEC Zwolle vs RKC Waalwijk
Date: Saturday, 6 February 2021
Kick-Off at 17.45 UK
Venue: MAC PARK Stadion.
PEC Zwolle will have a nice chance to maintain their three-game unbeaten run on Saturday afternoon when relegation strugglers RKC Waalwijk come to visit MAC PARK Stadion.
The hosts won one and drew two of the last three league outings. They have played ultra-attacking football recently and will head into this off the back of a pair of high-scoring draws (2-2 at home v Heracles and 3-3 away at Utrecht).
They have recently signed Virgil Misidjan from Nurnberg. The Dutch winger made just three appearances in the starting line-up and already has two goals to his name. He was on the scoresheet in the aforementioned 3-3 draw at Utrecht in the previous round.
Nevertheless, the head coach John Stegeman will have a massive headache over his troops’ defensive displays. His back line will be even weaker for the RKC clash due to the absence of a regular centre-back Bram van Polen who was sent off last weekend.
PEC Zwolle vs RKC Waalwijk Head-to-head
A win for Zwolle here would make the head to head stats all square at seven wins, draws, and losses for each team.
Five of the last seven H2H clashes between the two outfits ended in draws, including this season’s tie in mid-October last year (1-1).
PEC Zwolle vs RKC Waalwijk Prediction
RKC Waalwijk are just two points above the red zone at the moment. However, they will travel to MAC PARK Stadion in higher spirits having held the third-placed Vitesse to a 1-1 draw seven days ago on the road. They have failed to keep a clean sheet in the last ten matches, though, and also have the joint-worst attacking record in the division (17 goals in 20 outings).
Zwolle have scored and conceded goals with ease lately and we can hardly imagine a low-scoring scenario when they meet RKC Waalwijk here.
We will thus back the Over 2.5 goals FT pick as the main betting option at the odds of 1.75. The value is with the in-form winger Virgil Misidjan to score anytime at the sky-high 4.33 odds.
