MAIN PREDICTION: HOME WIN
De Graafschap faced off against Jong PSV Eindhoven on Monday and scraped an away win. They trailed 1-0 at half time as they allowed a goal against in the 39th minute. Mohamed Hamdaoui equalized in the 53rd minute. Jong PSV Eindhoven took the lead in the 85th minute and it didn’t look good for De Graafschap. It wasn’t over yet though. Ralf Seuntjens equalized in the 88th minute and Branco van den Boomen sent the fans into raptures as he handed De Graafschap the win in the 90+3th minute. The Superboeren have now built up a streak of 9 league games without losing.
Roda received a heavy defeat at the hands of Den Bosch. They already trailed heavily after allowing early goals in the 4th, 7th and 18th minute. Ike Ugbo pulled a goal back in the 36th minute, but two more Den Bosch goals in the 64th and 76th minute saw Roda suffer a 5-1 defeat. Antonio Cotan had to be substituted early and Pepijn Schlosser picked up two yellow cards as well.
The once decent Eredivisie side Roda have slipped heavily, are on a streak of 13 league games without a win. There’s turmoil in the backroom staff and board and they have now slipped to a woeful eighteenth place. De Graafschap are undefeated at home and should book a comfortable victory.
SECOND PREDICTION: CORRECT RESULT: 4-0
I’m going for a 4-0 win. De Graafschap have scored in the second half in each of their last 9 league games.
HEAD TO HEAD:
This match up has occurred seldom on this level, the last meeting was Roda winning 2-1 back in November 2014. Roda vs De Graafschap saw a 1-1 result in the league earlier this season.
