Our prediction for this Netherlands Eredivisie match:
Cars Jeans Stadion will host Saturday’s football game between Den Haag and FC Emmen. Den Haag aim to put an end to their three-game losing run, and it seems as if they will not have a better chance than this to get back on course. Boss Ruud Brood is likely to stick to the 5-3-2 formation, with Besuijen and Ould-Chikh up front. Emmen, on the other hand, are having a season to forget, with the team collecting five points in total ahead of Matchday 18.
The rock-bottom side are on a four-match losing run in the Eredivisie, and given the importance of the match for Den Haag, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the home side. Croatian attacker Marko Kolar, who suffered an injury in the 4-1 loss to Vitesse, is unlikely to feature against Den Haag.
Highlighted Player (Ravel Morrison):
Ravel Morrison is a product of the Manchester United football academy, who played for various European clubs before joining Den Haag in 2020. Morisson spent his youth career at Man Utd, but he did not see any game action with the Red Devils in the Premier League.
The attacking midfielder played for the likes of West Ham, Birmingham City, QPR, Cardiff City, Lazio, Atlas, Ostersund, Sheffield Utd, and Middlesbrough before moving to the Netherlands. Morisson made his Den Haag debut in a 2-0 loss to Vitesse on October 18, 2020. Speaking of his international career, it has to be noted that the Den Haag No. 5 has four caps with the England U21 team.
He played for the U16, U17, and U18 teams as well. Ravel Morrison has a dual citizenship, and, as a result, he is eligible to play for both England and Jamaica at senior level.
