Twente vs RKC Waalwijk Predictions, Odds, and Picks
Twente will look to continue their winning streak against a team that continues to provide surprising results this season.
Both Teams to Score – No
In their last five h2h matches, both teams didn't score only once. However, as RKC continued their pace while equally scoring on a high level and allowing goals virtually every game, Twente's defense has been the best in the league through eleven matches. They allowed only seven goals which is by far the best margin in the league. Twente is perfect at home with all five victories and a goal difference of 15-1.
Over 2.5 Goals
While Twente doesn't allow many goals, they score on a high level with 19 so far this season. RKC's defense is amongst the worst of any team in the top ten of the rankings, and what is expected out of this match could very well be torturous for the visitors.
Important information about Twente vs RKC Waalwijk
Twente aiming to continue its run of form
Twente is tied for third in Eredivisie when it comes to the number of victories they have achieved. They are at seven, the same amount of wins that teams like Feyenoord and AZ Alkmaar have. Ajax with nine, and PSV with one less are the very best in the league. But Twente also has the toughest defense in the league, and the importance of that fact plays directly into the understanding of their great form this term. They are currently fifth in the league, but only six points adrift of leaders Ajax. Twente's forwards showed a lot of consistency, Vaclav Cerny and Virgil Misidjan have scored four goals a piece, which doesn't seem a lot because the team has recorded 19 this season, but there are other players involved in scoring which is a big strength for the side coached by Ron Jans.
Twente's predicted starting 11: Unnerstall, Brenet, Hilgers, Propper, Smal, Zerrouki, Vlap, Kjolo, Rots, van Wolfswinkel, Misidjan.
RKC Waalwijk has been nothing short of terrific this season, they continued the work they started last season when they finished tenth. Even better, RKC has a positive goal difference at 21-18 after eleven matches, they play exciting, attacking football with lots of goals.
