Volendam vs Utrecht Lineups, Preview, and Team Information

Volendam

One of the youngest squads in the Eredivisie is facing a tough battle to avoid relegation this season, at least this is how it seems after they have played six matches. It is too early in the season to make a serious judgment call, but Volendam is in trouble. They are the only winless team remaining in the league. Xavier Mbuyamba and Koen Blommestijn are facing a fitness test before the match while Benaissa Benamar is suspended.

Predicted lineup: Backhaus, Plat, Mirani, Flint, Payne, Antonioli, Twigt, Kuol, de Haan, Ouild-Chikh, Muhren.

Utrecht

The visiting team has the upper hand against their next opponent only in one small notion, they have managed to earn at least one victory this season. Still, that is not enough to put them clear of the danger zone. Souffian El Karouani and Zidane Iqbal are out for another couple of weeks due to injury. Hugo Novoa is suspended after receiving a red card.

Predicted lineup: Barkas, Sagnan, Flamingo, ter Avest, Viergever, Bozdogan, Jensen, Fraulo, Boussaid, Seuntjens, Romeny.

Player to Watch: Robert Muhren

Even though Volendam is considered one of the youngest squads in the league, their best player, or at least scorer is the 34-year-old veteran Robert Muhren who has been on the scoresheet twice this season. He has thus scored a third of all the goals Volendam managed to put behind the goal line.

Muhren played in four matches this season. This is his third season for Volendam after he joined the club two summers ago from the Belgian outfit Zulte Waregem. He is one of those players who trained at Ajax academy before moving on in a different direction.
