Emmen Prediction

Emmen sit in the lowly position of 14th on the Eredivisie ladder but they’ve avoided any last day relegation dramas as the hosts hold a four point cushion over third from bottom club, Excelsior, prior to their last match of the season with Groningen at their De Oude Meerdijk ground.

3 wins from their last 5 matches proved to be enough to keep Emmen out of the relegation conversation with vital wins against Heerenveen, Utrecht and Willem II and they will head into this final day clash looking to capture a 3rd home win on the trot having beaten Heerenveen and Utrecht, both with 2-0 wins.

Emmen possess a home record that stands at 4-5-7 22/31 and although this could be better, Emmen have at least found the back of the net on a regular basis at home this season having failed to score in just 2 of their 16 home games to date.

Forwards Jansen (5 goals) along with Pedersen and Arias (4 goals apiece) look the most likely to score for the hosts in this encounter.

Groningen Prediction

Groningen know they must grab all three points here in this last day encounter at Emmen and hope that Heracles suffer a defeat away at 2nd placed PSV in order to give themselves a chance of claiming a last-gasp top 7 finish and the accompanying Europe League play-off spot.

Groningen have suffered just 3 defeats out of their last 14 matches overall, while recent wins against Venlo, Den Haag, De Graafschap, Excelsior and Fortuna Sittard have kept the visitors in the frame for a top seven finish in the Eredivisie.

However, all of the aforementioned wins above were all recorded at their Hitachi Capital Mobility Stadium where Groningen have won 10 of their 17 home matches this season, but an away record of 3-5-8 13/24 shows a definite weakness on their travels with only wins at De Graafschap, Excelsior and Willem II to show for their troubles.

Groningen have claimed just 1 away win out of their last 10 matches on the road, so the prospect of gaining all three points at Emmen doesn’t seem guaranteed by any stretch of the imagination.


Key-Facts – Emmen v Groningen

  • Emmen have won their last 2 matches on the trot in the Eredivisie
  • Emmen have scored in 14 of their 16 home matches to date in the Dutch top flight
  • Groningen have claimed just 1 away win out of their last 10 matches on the road


Betting Tips Verdict

Emmen’s recent wins will have given them confidence ahead of this last day of the season clash against Groningen and the hosts stand a decent chance of getting at least a point here.
