Helmond Sport Preview – Can Helmond Sport move up table?

A 2-1 win away from home at Den Bosch last time out in the Eerste Divisie not only handed Helmond Sport a valuable three points but also put an end to five matches without a win and the hosts will be looking to grab back-to-back wins on Friday night against De Graafschap.

An opening day 2-1 win on the road at TOP Oss gave Helmond Sport a perfect start to the new Dutch second tier campaign but they quickly slumped to five matches without a win which included four defeats which saw the hosts drop down the Eerst Divisie table, following losses against NAC Breda, Volendam, Almere City and Cambuur, so the prospects of a home win seem unlikely here.

However, goals have featured in recent times as Helmond suffered a heavy 5-1 loss to Cambuur but won 2-1 at Den Bosh, while their previous two encounters against De Graafschap have also produced three goals or more.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

De Graafschap Preview – Can De Graafschap extend unbeaten run?

A 0-0 draw away from home at Go Ahead Eagles handed De Graafschap a useful point on the road and also extended the visitors’ unbeaten run to three matches without a defeat in the Eerste Divisie which also includes recent wins against NEC and Excelsior.

In fact, De Graafschap have suffered just one defeat so far this season which was a heavy 7-3 loss on the road at AZ B, but earlier wins over Den Bosch and 4-2 and a 4-0 win over Roda have contributed to the visitors currently occupying 4th place in the Dutch second tier.

Three points in Friday’s clash at Helmond Sport could see them jump into 2nd place but the prices on a De Graafschap straight win are way too low, but the prospect of goals and the odds of these occurring look fairly likely as four of their six matches to date have produced three goals or more.
