FC Twente vs Roda JC Kerkrade Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

FC Twente welcome Roda JC Kerkrade at the De Grolsch Veste on Saturday night, with both sides looking to put their Eredivisie campaign back on track. FC Twente suffered a 3-1 defeat on the road at Willem II despite the fact that Oussama Assaidi gave them the lead in the 40th minute. On the contrary, Roda JC Kerkrade picked up a dramatic 1-0 home victory over NAC Breda last weekend, with Adil Auassar scoring the winner in the stoppage time. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news, match stats and odds all in our SBAT preview. Feel free to visit our Bet of the day page to check our best daily tips.

Betting Predictions and Tips

Roda are currently on a two-game winning streak in the Eredivisie and they should have enough to secure another positive result here, especially against Twente who lose their manager Rene Hake last weekend after he lead the club to a respectable 7th spot in the league table last season. I’m not fancying goals in this one as these two sides have only bagged 17 goals between them in eight rounds so far this season.

FC Twente Preview

FC Twente started the season in a horrible manner, losing their opening four league games while scoring just twice. However, their recent run of form got better as they have won three of their last five games across all competitions. They did well to beat Heracles 2-1 at home prior to the International break, but suffered a 3-1 defeat on the road at Willem II last weekend. They only sit in 15th position in the standings tied on six points with the 16th-placed Roda JC Kerkrade. The good news is that Twente started scoring goals recently, as they found the back of the net at least twice in three of their last five competitive fixtures. In addition, Twente have won their last two home games in the Eredivisie, scoring at least two goals in each of these. Furthermore, Twente are undefeated in their eight home meetings with Roda JC Kerkrade in the Eredivisie, winning six in the process. They also kept a clean sheet in five of these. Oussama Assaidi, Tom Boere and Fredrik Jensen all looked decent going forward, scoring two goals each.

FC Twente Team News

Haris Vuckic is the only doubtful player for Twente ahead of this game.

Roda JC Kerkrade Preview

Meanwhile, Roda JC Kerkrade head into this tie high on confidence as they have won their most recent two league outings, conceding just once in the process. Despite the recent results, Roda still find themselves in the bottom three tied on six points with the first team above the drop zone and their Saturday’s opponents FC Twente. Keeping the ball out of their own net has been Roda’s main problem throughout this early part of the campaign, as they hold the second worst defensive record in the division with 17 goals conceded in eight league games. However, it must be said that they have improved considerably at the back over the past month, conceding just three goals in their last four competitive fixtures. Away from home, Roda have lost five of their last seven games across all competitions, conceding at least two goals in each of these. Furthermore, they are winless in eight visits to the De Grolsch Veste since a 0-1 victory back in October 2007. Head-to-head, Roda are winless in the last nine meetings with Twente in the Eredivisie and have failed to score in the most recent three of these.
