Top Bets and Best Predictions for Twente vs Volendam

Twente lost in the Dutch Cup round 16 in midweek and will be looking forward to continuing their pursuit of the league title against Volendam.

Twente to Win-to-Nil

Twente loss on Thursday in the Cup match against Ajax was their first this season since early October, and it will be curious to see how the team responds after tasting defeat when so much time has passed. Volendam seems to be a good opponent to continue their good run of form in the Eredivisie and looking at how Twente has been defending this season, it's not an overreach to predict they will keep the clean sheet against Volendam. There is also a score to settle as Volendam was one of three clubs who defeated the Enschede team this season, taking the first game of the year with the score of 1-0.

Over 3.5 Goals

Twente is one of the best ‘under' teams in the league which is significant because of the way they play. Their defense has been the toughest in the league, and they are matching very well with most of their opponents. Twente had eighteen under 3.5 goals this season in 20 matches played which is the best mark in the league. Volendam had eleven in the same span.

The bookmakers have made their predictions for this matchup:

Twente odds: 1/4 (1.25) – 80%

Draw odds: 6/1 (6.00) – 16.7%

Volendam odds: 10/1 (10.00) – 10%

Twente is the overwhelming favorite, not a surprise, however, looking at the odds for the clear-cut win for the Enschede team, it doesn't seem as much of an investment. Thus, there are other available options for consideration: First Half – 1st Goal for Twente gets you odds of 4/7 (1.57) – 63.6%, and if you wish to take on a bigger risk, going for a Twente Win with BTTS will bring you odds of 6/4 (2.50) – 40%.

Team News, Probable Lineups, and Preview

Twente

It might seem harsh, but Twente players might be relieved that their quest in the Dutch Cup is over so they can fully focus on fighting for the Eredivisie title. They have been consistent throughout the season avoiding some losses, but they had too many draw games recently, four in their last five outings which is a lot of points that have been left behind. Twente still has the best defense in the league allowing only 13 goals, and that is a strength that allows them to fully understand what is necessary to take the title. Mees Hilgers, Michal Sadilek, Julio Pleguezuelo, Dimitrios Limnios, and Wout Brama are injured.

Probable lineup: Unnerstall, Smal, Propper, Bruns, Brenet, Salah-Eddine, Steijn, Zerrouki, Misidjan, van Wolfswinkel, Cerny.

Volendam

With one of the youngest squads in the league, Volendam was expected to be one of the teams that is going to be relegated to the Second Division. For much of the season, it looked like that. However, things have changed in the past few games, and with three wins, two draws, and only one loss after the winter break, Volendam now looks like a team that could keep their status in the Eredivisie. The guest team doesn't have any injury issues at the moment, but Gaetano Oristanio is going to miss the trip to Enschede because of a suspension.

Probable lineup: Stankovic, Flint, Mirani, Mbuyamba, Murkin, Eiting, Twigt, Plat, Da Silva, Antonucci, Muhren.

Player to Watch: Vaclav Cerny

The 25-year-old Czech Republic international has been a steady presence in Twente's starting lineup racking up 18 appearances with six goals and three assists on the record. With some injury issues for the team, Cerny will be even more important in the coming games, especially his versatility in front of the opposing goal.
