PEC Zwolle vs Willem II
Date: Friday, 9 November 2018
Kick-Off at 19:00 UK / 20:00 CET
Venue: MAC PARK Stadion (Zwolle).
Both Zwolle and Willem II are struggling badly coming into Friday’s Eredivisie round opener at MAC PARK Stadion. The hosts hoped for success against recently-promoted Fortuna Sittard last weekend, but they suffered a 3-0 disaster away from home instead. The loss came as a surprise after quite a strong display in the 2-5 thumping of Eerste Divisie outfit De Graafschap in the last week’s KNVB Beker action.
The Bluefingers thus extended the poor form in the league where they took just one point form last three matches. Can they return on the winning ways here against fellow strugglers Willem II?
The visitors were also successful in the cup beating lower division Spakenburg 5-0 last week. However, they could not do much to back up such victory on Saturday when Ajax eased past them with a comfortable 2-0 victory (both goals were scored in the first half) at Johan Cruijff Arena.
PEC Zwolle vs Willem II: Head-to-head
Willem II have a chance to make it all square at 9 wins apiece in the H2H record against Bluefingers.
This will be the landmark 20th head to head encounter.
Teams snatched one win each when they met in the previous term of Eredivisie (both came on the road).
Both teams scored only once in last four head to head affairs.
PEC Zwolle vs Willem II Prediction
Tricolores are winless in last eight league games. They come into this having failed to score a goal in last two fixtures against Utrecht ad Ajax. The head coach Adrie Koster can be optimistic due to the fact his men shipped only three goals in total in last two outings against such rivals.
Since only one of last four H2H games saw the BTTS option “come in”, we have reasons to expect a low-scoring contest in a highly-important relegation-battle match between these two likes. The value is quite strong with the Under 2.5 goals FT set at 2.20, while braver tipsters can ever go as far as trying with the visitors not to concede a goal at 5.00.
PEC Zwolle vs Willem II: Bet Tips
