Provisional Lineups, Team News, and Preview

Groningen

Over the years, Groningen has been one of the more stable clubs in Dutch football, a club that built its reputation on promoting talented players. But, this season has been a struggle for the team, they are barely holding onto their position outside the relegation zone, and it will be a battle for them to remain on the positive side of things. They only have three wins out of 15 matches with a negative goal difference of 17-30 which shows a lack of creativity in creating chances, as well as converting them into goals. Frank Wormuth has been replaced as the coach after bad few months at the helm, and recently Dennis van der Ree was appointed as the coach for the remainder of the season. The club barely spend any money on new players last summer, but they did sell two of their most important ones, Jorgen Strand Larsen and Bjorn Meijer. However, one they did bring has proved to be a success. Ricardo Pepi is the team's best scorer with six goals, but he is a rare positive force this season for Groningen. The home team beat Dordrecht in their only Cup match thus far, it was one of their easiest wins by the score of 3-0. Groningen achieved their biggest success in club history when they lifted the Dutch Cup trophy in 2015.

Provisional lineup: Verrips, Van Gelderen, Blokzijl, Balker, Dybvik Maatta, Kasanwirjo, Oratmangoen, van Bergen, Valente, Suslov, Pepi.

Spakenburg

One of many smaller clubs that have participated in the Dutch Cup this season, Spakenburg is located in a town called Bunschoten. The club was founded in 1931 and has mostly been a part of lower-division football for the entirety of its history. Currently, they compete in Tweede Divisie, which is a Third Tier league in the Netherlands. They are currently seventh in the league, but with limited chances of making it to the top as leaders AFC have a 14-point advantage. Spakenburg won two matches in a row, and that will add some fuel to their fire when facing a team like Groningen. Spakenburg barely scores more goals than they concede (25-24), but against Groningen, things will be set differently. Nobody expects them to come out as winners, so maybe that ease of pressure will be a positive notion. They don't have any relevant successes when it comes to competitions like the Dutch Cup, and gaining some additional experience is what they are hoping for every season. During their journey to the round of 16, they beat VV DOVO away by a single goal, and later on, managed to come through with a 2-1 score against TEC. Their best player is Floris van der Linden who scored seven goals with a couple of assists to his name. Luuk Admiraal is also someone that the Groningen defense will have to look out for.

Provisional lineup: Damen, Artien, Koelewijn, Werkman, Volkert, Veenhoven, van Lopik, Vink, Admiraal, de Ruiter, van der Linden.

Starting lineups

Starting lineups are usually released 60 minutes before kick-off.

Player to Watch: Ricardo Pepi

Even though most bigger teams select some of their reserve players to face a lesser-known opposition in the Cup competitions, that might not be the case with Groningen who needs a win to bring some positive atmosphere into the club. Ricardo Pepi, thus, will most likely play and be the key player for the home team once again. With six goals scored, he is also at the very top of the team's assists rankings with two that he recorded.
