Go Ahead Eagles vs FC Groningen Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

FC Groningen will look to continue their push for a European place when they travel to the De Adelaarshorst to take on Go Ahead Eagles on Saturday night. Go Ahead Eagles lost 2-0 on the road at Willem II last weekend, with Robert Maaskant’s men conceding both goals in the second half. On the contrary, FC Groningen managed an impressive 5-1 home victory over PEC Zwolle last time out. Brian Linssen and Mimoun Mahi scored a brace each, while Ajdin Hrustic sealed the victory with an excellent strike with just two minutes to go. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT preview.

Betting Predictions and Tips

Go Ahead Eagles have struggled to keep the ball out of their own net recently, while Groningen come into this tie on the back of a 5-1 home victory over PEC Zwolle. Furthermore, Groningen are unbeaten in their last seven meetings with Go Ahead Eagles, scoring at least two goals in six of these. I’m backing Groningen to secure a positive result in this one, but I’m also expecting a high-scoring affair.

FC Groningen to win at 11/10

Over 3.5 goals at 6/5

Go Ahead Eagles Preview

Go Ahead Eagles have only won once in their last nine games in the Eredivisie, and head into this clash on the back of a three-game losing streak. The Eagles looked terrible at both ends of the field over the past few weeks, conceding 14 goals while scoring just once in their last three league fixtures. They are rock bottom of the Eredivisie table with just 23 points to their name after 31 rounds, which means they now must find at least six points from their upcoming three games to stop their relegation. Keeping the ball out of their own net has been the Eagles’ main issue throughout the season, as they hold the worst defensive record in the division with 63 goals conceded in 31 league games. They have also looked poor going forward this term, having scored just 29 goals in 31 rounds. Their top scorer is Sam Hendriks with just seven goals under his belt, while Jarchino Antonio has helped the team with five goals and two assists in his 26 league appearances. On home soil, Go Ahead Eagles have lost eight of their last nine home league games, conceding at least three goals in six of these. In addition, the Eagles are winless in their last three home meetings with Groningen in the Eredivisie, conceding nine goals in the process.

FC Groningen Preview

Groningen have been struggling for consistency in the Eredivisie over the past two months, but they have showed some signs of improvement recently. They have only lost once in their last five league games, and enter the fray on the back of a comfortable 5-1 home win over PEC Zwolle. The win lifts Groningen in 10th position in the standings tied on 36 points with the 11th-placed Willem II, already eight points clear of the bottom three. Groningen have managed a decent tally of 46 goals in 31 rounds, but they really struggled at the other end of the field. They have conceded 45 goals in 31 league games, which is one of the worst defensive records in top ten. Their recent away form has also been a problem as Groningen are winless in their last six league trips, conceding at least two goals in four of these. The good news is that Groningen are undefeated in their last three visits to the De Adelaarshorst, scoring three goals in each of these. Mimoun Mahi and Brian Linssen have been Groningen’s most dangerous players in front of goal so far this season, as the pair bagged 23 goals and three assists between them.
