Go Ahead Eagles vs FC Utrecht Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Go Ahead Eagles will look to put their Eredivisie campaign back on track when they welcome FC Utrecht at the De Adelaarshorst on Saturday evening. Go Ahead Eagles had to settle for a 1-1 draw on the road at Excelsior last time out, despite the fact that Pedro Chirivella gave them the lead in the 9th minute. On the flip side, FC Utrecht succumbed to a 0-1 home defeat at the hands of Ajax at the weekend, conceding the goal in the last seven minutes of the game. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT preview.

Go Ahead Eagles Preview

Go Ahead Eagles’ abysmal run in the Eredivisie continued last weekend as they managed only a 1-1 draw on the road at Excelsior to extend their winless streak to seven games. Overall, the Eagles have only won three of their 19 games this season and are currently second from the bottom in the standings tied on 13 points with the bottom-placed Roda JC Kerkrade. G.A. Eagles looked poor at both ends of the pitch throughout this Eredivisie campaign, but their biggest problems have been in attack. They have only scored 16 goals in 19 league fixtures, which is the 3rd joint worst offensive record in the division. Jarchino Antonia has been the Eagles’ most in-form player this season, as the 26-year-old striker is currently leading the club’s goalscoring charts with four goals in his 14 league appearances. Sam Hendriks and Sander Duits have also played a vital part in the Eagles’ performances throughout this campaign, as the pair bagged six goals between them. On home soil, Go Ahead Eagles have only won once in their last six fixtures across all competitions, and are currently on a three-game losing run in the Eredivisie. Furthermore, the Eagles suffered a 0-2 defeat in their most recent home meeting with FC Utrecht in the Eredivisie.

FC Utrecht Preview

On the flip side, FC Utrecht’s 14-game unbeaten streak in all competitions ended at the weekend as they lost 0-1 at home at the hands of Ajax. Utrecht have only delivered a single shot on target last time out against Ajax, but they defended pretty well despite conceding the goal in the last seven minutes of the game. Despite this result, Utrecht still sit in a comfortable 6th spot in the Eredivisie table with 28 points after 19 rounds, just four points off the 4th-placed SC Heerenveen. FC Utrecht have been scoring goals for fun throughout this Eredivisie campaign, but their defensive line has been pretty sloppy. They have conceded 24 goals in 19 rounds, which is one of the worst defensive records in top seven. However, Utrecht should feel confident ahead of this trip, as they have only lost once in their eleven competitive fixtures on the road this season and are currently on a six-game unbeaten run. Furthermore, Utrecht have won the last two meetings with Go Ahead Eagles, which includes a 3-0 home victory in the reverse fixture. Sebastien Haller has been Utrecht’s most dangerous player in front of goal so far this season, helping the team with nine goals and four assists in his 19 league appearances.

Go Ahead Eagles Team News

Sinan Bytyqi, Chris Gurkan David and Tom Daemen are all doubts, but Lars Lambooij is still out through an ankle injury.

FC Utrecht Team News

Kevin Conboy and Edson Braafheid are both doubts, while Robbin Ruiter and Rico Strieder are both missing through injury.

Betting Predictions and Tips

I think Utrecht should be able to get back to winning ways in this one, as their recent form has been much better than the Eagles’ form. Furthermore, Utrecht looked unbeatable on the road over the past three months, scoring at least two goals in three of their last four away games in all competitions. This having been said, I’m backing Utrecht to grab all three points and to score at least two goals in this one.
