Our prediction for this Netherlands Eredivisie match:
Volendam and Twente face each other at Kras Stadion in the Eredivisie round 4. Volendam made a slow start to the season, with the team suffering back-to-back losses to Vitesse and Go Ahead Eagles and, no doubt, they are desperate to give fans something to cheer about this weekend. Keep in mind, though, that midfielder Robert Muhren is banned for the hosts.
The Reds, on the other hand, aim to recover from the Conference League elimination to Fenerbahce and it seems as if they will not have a better chance than this to return to winning ways. Twente are more of a team than Volendam, who obviously struggle at the back, and we predict that the visitors are going to showcase their quality on the field. As for the visiting side, goalkeeper Issam El Maach remains in the recovery room, while defender Gijs Smal faces race against the clock to be fit for the match.
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.
