FC Groningen vs FC Twente Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

FC Groningen will look to get back to winning ways in the Eredivisie when they welcome FC Twente at the Noordlease Stadion on Sunday at lunchtime. FC Groningen lost 2-1 on the road at NAC Breda, with Mimoun Mahi scoring their consolation goal in the last 20 minutes of the game. On the flip side, FC Twente won 4-0 at home over FC Utrecht last time out in the Eredivisie thanks to goals from Tom Boere, Thomas Lam, Luciano Slagveer and Oussama Assaidi. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news, match stats and odds all in our SBAT preview.

Betting Predictions and Tips - Match Odds

FC Groningen have struggled for consistency in the Eredivisie since the start of the season, but they still are a strong side in front of their own fans. Groningen have only lost once in their last nine games in the Eredivisie and are unbeaten in three fixtures so far this season. On the other hand, Twente have suffered defeats in each of their three league trips so far this season, scoring just once in the process. I’m expecting a tight game, but I think that Groningen are more than capable to get all three points here.

FC Groningen v FC Twente - Correct score betting tips and odds

It’s tricky to predict the correct score for this clash as each of the last six games between these two sides have seen different scores. Both sides have struggled to keep the ball out of their own net, but both managed to score several goals in the Eredivisie recently. I’m expecting Twente to get on the scoresheet here, but Groningen to win 2-1 look good value at odds 15/2

FC Groningen Preview

FC Groningen have only won once in five rounds so far this season and come into this tie on the back of a two-game winless streak in the Eredivisie. After a disappointing 1-1 home draw against the newcomers Venlo, Groningen suffered a 2-1 away loss at another newly-promoted team in the shape of NAC Breda. Groningen did well to score eight goals in five rounds so far this season, but they struggled to keep the ball out of their own net. Groningen have conceded ten goals in this early part of the campaign, which is one of the worst defensive records in the division. They sit only in 11th position in the Eredivisie table tied on five points with Sparta Rotterdam and Heracles, just two points clear of the bottom three. Groningen can count on their home form ahead of this clash as they are unbeaten in their three home league fixtures so far this season, scoring at least two goals in two of these. The most worrying fact is that Groningen have only won once in their last eleven home meetings with FC Twente across all competitions. The good news is that Groningen registered a 3-5 victory over Twente in the most recent meeting between these two sides.

Kasper Larsen is Groningen’s only doubtful player ahead of this clash.

FC Twente Preview

Twente, on the other hand, head into this clash high on confidence following their 4-0 home win over Utrecht last weekend, which was their first victory of the new Eredivisie season. Furthermore, they followed this up with a 1-3 win on the road at ONS Sneek in the KNVB Beker Cup in midweek. They looked deadly in front of goal recently, having scored seven goals in their most recent two competitive games. This leaves Twente only in 16th spot in the Eredivisie table tied on three points with Willem II, just one point behind safety. Scoring goals has been Twente’s biggest problem throughout this early part of the season as they only managed six goals in five rounds. Actually, Twente have only scored twice in their opening four league fixtures. Tom Boere has been the standout player for Twente in this early part of the campaign, helping the team with two goals and one assist in his four league appearances. Away from home, Twente were on a six-game winless streak across all competitions prior to their 1-3 win at ONS Sneek in their most recent trip. The good news is they picked up a 3-4 victory in their most recent visit to the Noordlease Stadion.

Fredrik Jensen and Danny Holla are doth doubts ahead of this trip.
