Our prediction for this Netherlands Eredivisie match:
All eyes will be on De Grolsch Veste when Twente and Utrecht take on each other in an eagerly-awaited Eredivisie game. Twente aim to build on back-to-back wins over RKC Waalwijk and Excelsior and they are likely to adopt yet another attack-oriented approach. Experienced striker Ricky van Wolfswinkel should keep his place up front after scoring a brace against the Rotterdammers, while midfielder Gisj Besselink is a major doubt and he will be assessed ahead of the kick-off.
Utrecht, on the other hand, outplayed the likes of Volendam and Fortuna Sittard in the previous two league matches, with the team netting eight goals in total in these triumphs. Taking everything into account, we believe that there is a big value in betting on over 2.5 goals. Both Ole Romeny and Vasilios Barkas are sidelined with injuries, while all Bart Ramselaar, Isac Lidberg, and Anthony Descotte remain doubtful.
Highlighted Team (Twente):
Based in the city of Enschede, Twente is a Dutch football club that welcomes their rivals at De Grolsch Veste. The venue was opened on May 10, 1998, and the capacity of the stadium is 30,205 people. The club was founded in 1965 as a merger of Sportsclub Enschede and Enschedese Boys.
The Reds did remarkably well to win the Eredivisie title in the 2009/10 season, with the team finishing the process only one point clear of Dutch giants Ajax. As a result, Twente booked their place in the Champions League group stages. The Reds did well to collect six points in their group, but that did not help them make it to the last 16.
Twente are well known for their red jerseys, but they wear dark blue shirts when playing on the travels. The Reds take on Heracles Almelo in the Twentse Derby. Sander Boshchker is leading Twente’s all-time goal-scoring chart with 653 goals on his account.
