This is how the bookmakers are predicting an upcoming matchup will be resolved:

RKC Waalwijk odds: 6/5 (2.20) – 45.5%

Draw odds: 12/5 (3.40) – 29.4%

Emmen odds: 11/5 (3.20) – 31.3%

RKC has been predicted as the winner by most bookmakers which is understandable given their league position, however, this could go down to the wire as far as the final result goes. Bettors might want to look at other available options for this tie: RKC has been very efficient playing at home, but they also concede a lot of goals, so predicting an early goal and taking a 1-15 minute mark for the First Goal to be scored seem like a good idea. The odds are set at 3/1 (3.00) – 33.3%. RKC winning with BTTS is also a good option and is priced at 7/2 (4.50) – 22.2%.

Preview, Team News, and Potential Lineups

RKC Waalwijk

The home side is keeping their momentum going, but with a slower pace recently. They are without a win for the past four matches, however with enough points of advantage from the relegation battlers. RKC has kept its place around the top ten ranking for much of the season, but as the year concludes they will need to stay focused because the games are going to be harder with each passing round with so many teams in trouble. Coach Joseph Oosting is without injury worries for this matchup.

Potential lineup: Vaessen, Gaar, Adewoye, Van den Buijs, Lelieveld, Clement, Anita, Oukili, Lutonda, Bel Hassani, Kramer.

Emmen

The visitors surprised PSV earlier in the week and managed to escape the relegation zone for the time being. However, the real battle is just beginning. Emmen has been more dominant against RKC in recent years, especially during the meetings in the Second Division. The guest side has a lot of problems in front of the opposition's goal, with only 15 goals scored this season they are the second-worst team in the league behind Cambuur. To make matters worse, there are a lot of injury problems for Emmen: Azzeddine Toufiqui, Jeff Hardeveld, and Maikel Kieftenbeld are injured, while Lorenzo Burnet, Oussama Drfalou, Metehan Guclu, and Mart Lieder are doubtful.

Potential lineup: van der Hart, Veendorp, Veldmate, Araujo, Dirksen, El Messaoudi, Bernadou, Bouchouari, Diemers, Mendes, Zivkovic.
