Top Predictions and Best Odds for Utrecht vs Emmen

Both of these teams will continue their season shortly after the last match of the regular season, but they will have a different goal in mind.

Over 3.5 Goals

Utrecht will continue its season fighting for a European berth after finishing the first part of the year in sixth place. Emmen, on the other hand, will also play additional games, but not the ones they want, they are about to face a select team from the Second Division to try and avoid relegation. Thus, this particular Utrecht vs Emmen match has no relevance when it comes to the outcome. The first match they played against each other this season ended with five goals and looking at their current form regarding over 3.5 goals matches, Emmen had four of them from the last five encounters while Utrecht went over the line on a couple of occasions during the same number of games.

Both Teams to Score

A similar sentiment goes for the second Utrecht vs Emmen prediction. There is no pressure for either team to get a win or to put some pressure on their backs, thus it seems that these are the perfect circumstances to have a high-scoring match. Emmen won the first game they played this year with a 3-2 score, and from the last six h2h outings, four of them ended with both teams scoring at least a goal. We are looking at their recent league form, Utrecht had two BTTS games while Emmen had seen goals from both sides of the field on four occasions.

Utrecht vs Emmen Lineups, Team News, and Match Preview

Utrecht

The home team has done a good job of keeping their place inside the top eight and qualifying for European placement playoffs and for the last game of the season, we can expect that a lot of players who haven't played as much this season will get their chance to impress. There are a lot of injury issues for the hosts: Luuk Brouwers, Anthony Descotte, Amin Younes, Bas Dost, Ramon Hendriks, Calvin Raatsie, and Django Warmerdam are out of this weekend's match.

Possible lineup: Barkas, Klaiber, van der Hoorn, Viergever, van der Maarel, Bozdogan, Toornstra, Boussaid, van de Streek, Booth, Douvikas.

Emmen

The main focus for the guest side is keeping their status in Eredivisie alive and for that to happen they will need to win the relegation playoffs. They will go into that match as the favorite, but it is always a tough prospect playing in those kinds of matches. Rui Mendes, Metehan Guclu, Jeff Hardeveld, Maikel Kieftenbeld, and Mart Lieder are injured.

Possible lineup: van der Hart, Burnet, Veldmate, Araujo, te Wierik, El Messaoudi, Veendorp, Antonisse, Diemers, Romeny, Zivkovic.

Player to Watch: Can Bozdogan

The young German midfielder is a key member of Utrecht's team and his injury troubles must be behind him in this pivotal part of the season. His goal stats might not look all that impressive as he scored only one goal, but he had six assists while playing 23 league matches, missing ten through injury.

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