The Eerste Divisie in Holland is one of our favourite leagues, with plenty of goals always flowing. This week we have another full round of fixtures, including 9 fixtures this Friday. In this article, we will take a look at the key fixtures and provide stats, betting tips and detailed previews. If you’re interested in digging deeper into the stats, take a look at our football form guide.
The league looks to belong to FC Twente this season, and they could attribute this to their incredible home form. They have won 71% of home games, scoring 1.87 goals per game. Not too many, there are certainly teams that have scored more at home but no team has conceded fewer home goals than Twente this season. Dordrecht is inconsistent, to say the least. In the last 5 away games, they have won 3 whilst scoring 10 goals. To give you an idea for their fluctuating form, they recently beat Volendam (16th) 4-3 away from home. The game before, they conceded 8 to Eindhoven (11th). They have conceded 17 goals in the last 5 games, both home and away.
Roda (10th) hosts RKC (7th), with Roda currently unbeaten in the last 4 home games. It’s really tight between these sides, both in quality and in the league standings. Just 10 points separate 6th and 15th so every game is effectively a 6-pointer. RKC will be confident, having won 3 of the last 5 games coming to this and scoring in each of the last 4. On the road, they have scored 1.60 goals per game this season whilst the home side has seen 75% of their games end with both teams scoring. Goals expected in this one.
This is the game I’ll personally be watching on Friday. 2nd travel to 4th with Sparta Rotterdam in much better form having won the last 4 games. Away from home, they have won just 31% of games. Their main problem is not being able to see out games, as they have had 8 draws on the road. Sparta has kept a clean sheet in just 25% of their away games this season, whilst Den Bosch has scored in every single game. They don’t just score once, either. They have scored 2.06 goals per game on average this season and in the last 5 home games have scored 11 goals.
