FC Utrecht Preview

FC Utrecht have been up and down over the past month, registering two wins, two defeats and one draw in their last five games across all competitions. They managed a decent 3-1 home victory over SC Heerenveen after the International break, but they succumbed to a 3-0 defeat on the road at AZ Alkmaar at the weekend. They still sit 9th in the Eredivisie table tied on 13 points with the 8th-placed ADO Den Haag, just one point behind the top seven. Utrecht managed a decent tally of 13 goals in nine rounds so far this season, but their back line has let them down. They have already conceded 18 goals, which is one of the worst defensive records in the division. The good news is that Utrecht are now back on home soil where they have only lost once in their last eight home fixtures across all competitions. Utrecht have won three of their four home league games so far this season, scoring at least two goals in each of these. Furthermore, Utrecht have won four of their last seven home meetings with NAC Breda across all competitions, scoring at least three goals in five of these.

FC Utrecht Team News

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

NAC Breda Preview

On the other hand, NAC Breda’s form over the past two months has seen them win just two of their last ten competitive fixtures. Breda come into this clash on the back of a three-game losing streak in the Eredivisie, but the most worrying thing is that they have failed to score in each of these. They looked poor at both ends of the field throughout this Eredivisie campaign, scoring nine goals and conceding 17 in nine games. Rai Vloet is the team’s topscorer with three goals under his belt, while Thierry Ambrose and Giovanni Korte bagged four goals between them. Away from home, NAC Breda have lost four of their five competitive away fixtures so far this season, conceding at least three goals in three of these. The only good news is that Breda are unbeaten in their last two visits to the Stadion Galgenwaard, registering one win and one win this term. Actually, Breda have only lost once in their last four games across all competitions. The impressive fact is that four of the last five meetings between these two sides have seen more than four goals scored.

NAC Breda Team News

Robbie Haemhouts, Pablo Mari Villar, Olivier Roomens, Chiro N’Tolo and Thomas Agyepong are all doubts.
