Our prediction for this Netherlands Eredivisie match:
Utrecht will be aiming to make amends for a 4-1 loss to PSV when they take on G.A. Eagles in the Eredivisie round 16. Rene Hake’s troops continue with their habit of producing much better showings at home than on the travels, with the team eyeing their fifth consecutive win at home ground. All Sylian Mokono, Christopher Mamengi, and Tommy St. Jago are rated doubtful for the game.
The newcomers, on the other hand, suffered a 2-1 loss to Twente in their last league match. G.A. Eagles have been having their ups and downs of late, but matching Utrecht at Stadion Galgenwaard is easier said than done. In their last meeting in the Eredivisie Utrecht defeated G.A. Eagles thanks to Xandro Schenk’s own goal, and we predict that the history is going to repeat itself. Important forwards Ogechika Heil and Marc Cardona are major doubts, speaking of the visiting team.
Highlighted Player (Willem Janssen):
After starting his senior career at VVV-Venlo, Willem Janssen joined fellow Dutch club Roda JC in 2007. The 186-cm-tall centre-back scored 22 goals in 129 appearances for the Black and Yellows in the Eredivisie, and in 2011 he moved to Twente.
After ending his loan spell with Utrecht in 2014, he signed a permanent deal with the Stadion Galgenwaard outfit, and he has been playing for the club ever since. He scored his first league goal for Utrecht in a 1-1 draw with Zwolle on September 1, 2013. Willem Janseen was born in Nijmegen, Netherlands on July 4, 1986, but he has yet to earn a call-up for the national team. Janssen, though, has two caps with the Netherlands U21 team.
His main position is centre-back, but he is used as both defensive midfielder and central midfielder as well. His preferred foot is right. In the 2015/16 season he helped Utrecht make it to the Dutch Cup final, but Feyenoord proved to be a big catch for them in the title game.
