Emmen vs Groningen Predicitions and Free Bets

After losing four straight Eredivisie matches, Groningen came back to life against the unexpected opponent, the mighty PSV.

Groningen to Win

It's been two months since the last time Emmen beat someone, that unfortunate team was Utrecht, and the season is just past the half part of August. Since then, Emmen endured one disappointment after another. Their winless run is at eight games. Groningen didn't have much to look forward to, their season is going way below their expectations and a win against PSV brought some life into the squad.

Over 2.5 Goals

Groningen played in five straight matches with over 2.5 goals which are strange as they were never known as a team that plays matches with a lot of goals. But, this season is different, and that ranking illustrates it perfectly. They are just above the relegation zone. Just like their opponent, Emmen also has seven matches with more than two goals, and their h2h also shows that their games are usually entertaining affairs.

Preview and information about Emmen vs Groningen

 

Can Groningen finally escape from the relegation battle?

Emmen is second from bottom with only one win, the aforementioned beating of Utrecht more than two months ago. They have serious issues at the forward position with only nine goals scored in eleven matches that they played this season in Eredivisie. They are slightly more comfortable playing at home where they have to accumulate six points with only one defeat. Ole Romeny is their best scorer with four goals which makes up almost half the goals the team scored this season. That is simply not good enough, and if something doesn't change soon they could be back in the Second Division. Emmen has some availability problems, no more than five players won't be able to play because of injuries.

Emmen probable 11: van der Hart, Bouchouari, Araujo, Veldmate, Dirksen, Vlak, Veendorp, El Messaoudi, Mendes, Diemers, ter Haar.

Groningen expected to be positioned far better than they are now, just above the relegation zone with a goal difference of 14-24. Out of those 14 goals scored this season, four came last week against PSV. Contrary to their opponent, they do have someone who excels in front of the opposition goal, Ricardo Pepi has five goals to his name with one assist. He was their biggest signing this past summer from Bundesliga side Augsburg. Defending the goal is the key for Groningen who has allowed 24 goals which is, coincidentally the highest mark in the league alongside Emmen.

Groningen probable 11: de Boer, Dybvik Maatta, Balker, te Wierik, Kasanwirjo, Duarte, Valente, Abraham, Kruger, Ngonge, Pepi.

Team News:

Emmen: Lucas Bernadou, Jeff Hardeveld, Metehan Guclu, Maikel Kifetenbeld, and Mart Lieder are injured.

Groningen: Tomas Suslov, Nordin Musampa, Michael Verrips, and Liam Van Gelderen are suffering from health problems.
