Our prediction for this Netherlands Eredivisie match:
Buoyed by a 3-2 win over Volendam, Go Ahead Eagles will try to repeat the success when they face Emmen on Matchday 7. The home side have yet to start producing their best displays in the new season, with the team recording just one win in the process, and as a result, they sit in the relegation zone ahead of the visit of the Kannibals. Both Jose Fontán and Finn Stokkers will be assessed ahead of the kick-off.
FC Emmen, on the other hand, will look to put an end to their three-game losing streak in the Eredivisie, but they will have a big fish to fry this time out. Anyhow, we believe that there is a big value on betting on both teams to score, since both sides will aim to grab something from this encounter. Both Jeroen Veldmate and Maikel Kieftenbeld remain in the recovery room, while all Metehan Güclü, Mart Lieder and Kyan van Dorp are rated doubtful.
Highlighted Player (Anco Jansen):
Born in Zwolle, Netherlands on March 9, 1989, Anco Jansen is a pacey winger who started his senior career in his home-town club FC Zwolle. After scoring two goals in 40 league appearances for the club, he joined Groningen in 2008, but he did not see any game action with the Green and White Army in the Eredivisie.
Anco Jansen played for the likes of Cambuur, SC Veendam, De Graafschap, Roda JC, and Boluspor as well before joining FC Emmen in 2017. Anco Jansen made his Eredivisie debut with FC Emmen in a 2-1 win over ADO Den Haag on August 12, 2018, with the winger finding the net after 42 minutes.
His main position is left winger, but he is used as both centre-forward and attacking midfielder as well. His preferred foot is right. Anco Jansen has yet to earn a call-up with the Netherlands national football team.
