Groningen vs Emmen Best Bets and Predictions

Groningen suffered another bad loss last week by going down in Eindhoven with six goals in the net, the chances for surviving this Eredivisie season are lowering with each passing round.

Draw

The only good thing that happened when Groningen lost to PSV is that one of their main rivals in the relegation battle, Emmen, also lost. Groningen, it seems, can't win a game if their life depends on it. They are now ten games in a row without a win, and in that period, they have lost eight matches. Ahead of the Groningen vs Emmen, when it comes to the guest side, their form is only slightly better, the last win they earned was three weeks ago when they beat PSV. In the first match between Groningen and Emmen this season the result was a scoreless draw, and the last time they played in Groningen the final score was stuck at 1-1. As far as draws are concerned this season, Emmen had seven of them while Groningen played out only four. However, the way they are playing at the moment, it seems that predicting a draw is what they could be happy with, just to avoid another loss.

Under 2.5 Goals

The second Groningen vs Emmen prediction is focused on over/under goals possibilities. Emmen had a mountain of problems regarding injuries for the match last week against Fortuna Sittard which they lost by a single goal, and things are not looking good for their trip to Groningen as well. Emmen's attack is second-worst in Eredivisie, while Groningen's is only better by a few goals. At the same time, nobody has a worse defensive record than Groningen who accumulated 47 conceded goals. For the season, Groningen had the fifth-highest mark when it comes to over 2.5 goals matches, but that is not a surprise because they suffered some big losses to the top teams. The visitors had eleven out of their 21 matches with fewer than three goals in the back of the net. Looking at their h2h matchup, four out of their last five games ended with ‘under' of goals.

Groningen vs Emmen Lineups, Team News, and Preview

Groningen

Looking at Groningen's perspective going forward, it seems that the team lost all hope that they can survive the season. Losing eight matches out of their last ten shows that something is wrong within a team, and of all the teams in the relegation battle, their chances of staying in Eredivisie look the worst. Mads Sorensen and Luciano Valente are out with injuries.

Predicted lineup: Verrips, Dankerlui, Balker, Blokzijl, Dybvik Maatta, Hove, Pelupessy, Suslov, Irandust, Pepi, Manu.

Emmen

There are a lot of teams battling against relegation, and Emmen's improved form of late gives them hope that they could be the ones staying with the best teams in the country. Emmen has a big injury list which cost them a possible win against Fortuna Sittard last week. Jeroen Veldmate, Lorenzo Burnet, Oussama Darfalou, Rui Mendes, Jeff Hardeveld, and Maikel Kieftenbeld are missing with health issues.

Predicted lineup: van der Hart, Dirksen, Araujo, te Wierik, Bouchouari, Bernadou, Veendorp, El Messaoudi, Antonisse, Diemers, Zivkovic.

Player to Watch: Ricardo Pepi

The 20-year-old American center-forward who is on loan from Augsburg scored seven goals this season, by far the highest mark in Groningen's team. However, he has scored only once since the season continued after the winter break. The team needs him to recapture the form from the first part of the season.
