Volendam vs Groningen Predictions and Top Odds

Two sides that are fighting to stave off relegation are clashing in this round 19 match of Eredivisie.

Volendam to Win

A few weeks ago it would be almost unimaginable to predict Volendam could beat anyone, even their relegation rivals. But, things have changed in January as Volendam is playing decent football for the first time this season. They have won twice in their last four matches and drew a few days ago in Amsterdam against Ajax which brought Volendam players joy that they haven't experienced in a while. Now, they are facing Groningen, a team that managed to be the worst in the league, even surpassing Cambuur who barely score any goals. Volendam won two and lost six matches at home while Groningen won only once away from their stadium with six losses and a couple of draw games. Looking at their h2h, Volendam is waiting to win this matchup since 2004. Since then, they played nine times with Groningen winning eight of those matches while the last one, last August at the start of the current season ended with a score of 2-2.

Both Teams to Score – No

Groningen is struggling mightily to score goals, they even failed to do so earlier in the week, at home against Cambuur whose attack is the worst in the league, but they somehow managed to score one goal which was the difference maker. In their ten matches, Groningen had BTTS covered only five times, while Volendam had six, however, since the winter break, they had two out of four games with no BTTS. The most interesting stat is about their h2h matches, eight of the last ten games ended without both teams scoring a goal.

This is the way how the bookmakers are predicting this matchup unfolding:

Volendam odds: 5/4 (2.25) – 44.4%

Draw odds: 5/2 (3.50) – 28.6%

Groningen odds: 3/1 (3.00) – 33.3%

Volendam looks like the favorite according to the bookmakers' predictions, but things can get interesting when teams from the bottom section of the rankings are facing each other. Other potential options for bettors are here to be pondered about: If you believe a low-scoring affair is in the order you might want to check a Goal Range option with 0-1 goals which is valued at 11/4 (3.75) – 26.7%. On the other hand, you are maybe thinking that Groningen might get a win here, so going for the visitors Win-to-Nil can get you odds of 9/2 (5.50) – 18.2%.

Team News, Predicted Lineups, and Preview

Volendam

One of the youngest squads in Eredivisie has woken up just in time to try and save their season. With only one loss out of their last four matches, they are very close to escaping the relegation zone, at least for the time being. Volendam players are in a terrific mood after getting a draw against Ajax which is one of their biggest results ever, and now are turning their attention toward the worst team in the league. The hosts have only Francesco Antonucci as a potential missing for the match.

Predicted lineup: Stankovic, Plat, Mbuyamba, Mirani, Flint, James, Twigt, Da Silva, Eiting, Murkin, Oristanio.

Groningen

The atmosphere in Groningen is dire, the team lost six straight games, or nine out of their last ten and they are finding themselves in the uncharted territory of being the worst team in the league. They even managed to lose against Cambuur earlier in the week, and are now traveling to Volendam whose team has played very good football in recent matches. Laros Duarte, Marin Sverko, Paulos Abraham, and Nordin Musampa are injured.

Predicted lineup: Verrips, Bech Sorensen, Blokzijl, Balker, Van Gelderen, Oratmangoen, Hove, Dybvik Maatta, Valente, Pepi, Kruger.
