FC Twente vs FC Utrecht Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

FC Twente are still searching for their first points of the new Eredivisie campaign when they welcome FC Utrecht at the De Grolsch Veste on Sunday at lunchtime. FC Twente lost 1-0 on the road at Sparta Rotterdam, in a game in which they delivered just one shot on target. On the contrary, FC Utrecht won 2-0 at home over Roda JC Kerkrade last time out in the Eredivisie, with Erik Ten Hag’s men scoring a goal in each half. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT preview.

Betting Predictions and Tips

I’m expecting FC Utrecht to inflict FC Twente a fifth consecutive defeat as they played an impressive football in this early part of the season, while FC Twente have only scored two goals in their last nine games across all competitions. Both teams to score is another strong bet in this one as four of the last five meetings between these two have seen goals at both ends of the field.

FC Twente Preview

FC Twente had a poor pre-season campaign and started the new Eredivisie season in a similar manner. They have suffered defeats in each of the opening four rounds and they are currently on a nine-game winless streak across all competitions, including games from pre-season. Finding the back of the net has been Twente’s main issue over the past two months, as they have failed to score in seven of their last nine games across all competitions. Twente are the division’s lowest goalscorers with just two goals under his belt after four rounds. Fredrik Jensen and Tom Boere have scored Twente’s goals in this early part of the season. Despite the recent poor run of form, Twente’s manager Rene Hake sounded unconcerned regarding this situation as he said that his young and inexperienced strikers still need some time to adapt. On home soil, FC Twente have only won five of their last 15 home games across all competitions and are currently on a six-game winless streak. The most worrying fact is that Twente have only scored once in their last four home fixtures. In addition, Twente are winless in the last two home meetings with FC Utrecht across all competitions, conceding four goals in this term.

Stefan Thesker is the only injury absentee for Twente ahead of this game.

FC Utrecht Preview

After losing 2-1 on the road at FC Groningen prior to the International break, FC Utrecht bounced back with a comfortable 2-0 home win over Roda JC Kerkrade last weekend. This means that Utrecht have now won three of the opening four league fixtures, keeping a clean sheet in each of these. Erik Ten Hag’s men played some delightful stuff against Roda JC Kerkrade last week as they have created 26 goalscoring opportunities and delivered ten shots on target. Utrecht currently sit in 4th spot in the Eredivisie table tied on nine points with other four teams, three points behind the current leaders Feyenoord. Their solid back line has been Utrecht’s secret for their good performance throughout this early part of the season as they hold the best defensive record in the division, conceding just two goals in four rounds. The most worrying fact is that Utrecht have only won once in their last seven away games across all competitions and have suffered a 2-1 defeat at Groningen in their most recent league trip. Head-to-head, Utrecht are undefeated in the last three meetings with Twente across all competitions, scoring three goals in two of these.

FC Utrecht Team News

Chris Gurkan David, Patrick Joosten and Simon Makienok are all doubts ahead of this trip.
