De Graafschap Prediction

De Graafschap sit second from bottom in the Dutch top flight and find themselves four points adrift of safety ahead of this important clash with Den Haag on Friday night as the hosts look to grab all three points to ease their relegation worries.

Overall recent form has been sketchy though as the hosts have recorded wins against Fortuna Sittard, NAC Breda and PEC Zwolle but these have been offset by defeats to Excelsior, Feyenoord and Utrecht which has resulted in De Graafschap not really moving any further forward in recent weeks.

Results at home have produced mixed returns throughout the season which is underlined their home record of 5-1-6 20/20 and although they captured wins against the aforementioned Fortuna Sittard and NAC Breda, they’ve also lost twice too.

Goals have featured on a regular basis though, with De Graafschap scoring and conceding in equal measure at home to date, while the over 2.5 goals mark has been achieved in 8 of their 12 home matches in the Eredivisie so far this season.

Midfielder El Jebli and forward Serrarens (6 goals apiece) look the most likely for the hosts here.


Key-Facts – De Graafschap v Den Haag

  • 8 of De Graafschap’s 12 home matches have resulted in over 2.5 goals
  • Den Haag have won just 2 of their last 9 away matches
  • 7 of Den Haag’s 11 away matches have resulted in over 2.5 goals


Den Haag Prediction

Den Haag sit in 12th place on the Eredivisie league ladder and six points ahead of their opponents, De Graafschap as they prepare for their trip on Friday night, also having posted mixed results in recent weeks.

Den Haag have recorded wins over Heracles and PEC Zwolle, both of which were at their Cars Jeans Stadion, but have also suffered defeats to Emmen and Ajax in recent times, so the visitors have remained in the bottom of the division and still not yet safe of the relegation play-off spots.

The theme of inconsistent results has also been the case for Den Haag away from home too as they’ve collected two wins from their last nine away matches which were victories at PEC Zwolle and Willem II, along with three draws (versus Heerenveen, Vitesse and NAC Breda) as well as four defeats at VVVenlo, Utrecht, Ajax and Emmen.

The visitors possess an ordinary away record of 3-3-5 18/24, but whilst it’s hard to determine the next result, goals have also featured when Den Haag have been on their travels.

7 of Den Haag’s 11 away matches have resulted in over 2.5 goals and with the likes of El Khayati (13 goals) and Necid (4 goals), the visitors should also notch here on Friday night too.

Betting Tips Verdict

There should be a few goals in this encounter with the over 2.5 goals looking good.
