Our prediction for this Netherlands Eredivisie match:
Buoyed by back-to-back wins over Emmen and Nijmegen, Twente will be aiming to give fans yet another reason to celebrate when they take on Waalwijk on Matchday 33. The Reds are eager to cement fifth place in the standings, but this game will be anything but a walk in the park for the away team. Defender Robin Propper is banned for the match, while midfielder Max Bruns is a major doubt and he will be assessed ahead of the kick-off.
The hosts, meanwhile, aim to recover from a 2-0 loss to Utrecht and a win over Twente should see them climb to the Conference League berth. Considering that the hosts want this win more than the visitors, we are tempted to put our money on Joseph Oosting’s troops. The Dutch tactician should have a full squad to choose from, which is yet another reason why we are going to bet on the home side.
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.
