Helmond Sport vs Roda JC Kerkrade Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Helmond Sport welcome Roda JC Kerkrade at the Lavans Stadion on Thursday afternoon for the first leg of their Eredivisie relegation play-offs Semifinals tie. Helmond come into this clash high on confidence as they destroyed Almere City 6-2 on aggregate in the quarter-finals of the relegation play-offs. Meanwhile, Roda JC Kerkrade were thrashed 3-0 on the road at Vitesse on the final day of the Eredivisie regular season. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT preview.

Betting Predictions and Tips

Roda JC Kerkrade are the most experienced side between these two, but Helmond looked really good in their recent 6-2 aggregate win over Almere City. Furthermore, Helmond are undefeated in their last five home league fixtures, scoring at least two goals in three of these. On the flip side, Roda JC Kerkrade are unbeaten in their five meetings with Helmond across all competitions, conceding just once in this term. It’s difficult to predict the winner in this one, but I’m expecting an open affair with goals at both ends of the field.

Helmond Sport Preview

Helmond Sport had a disappointing Eerste Divisie campaign as they finished only in 13th during the regular season, but they still managed to reach the play-offs as Eindhoven FC and De Graafschap aren’t allowed to participate. Keeping the ball out of their own net has been Helmond's main issue throughout the regular season, as they had one of the most leakiest defences in the division with 67 goals conceded in 38 rounds. However, Helmond looked very solid in their 6-2 aggregate victory over Almere City in the quarter-finals relegation play-offs, and they will be looking to build on that when they face Roda on Thursday afternoon. Helmond can count on their home form ahead of this tie as they are undefeated in five league fixtures since a 0-2 loss at the hands of De Graafschap back in the middle of March. The bad news is that Helmond are winless in their three home meetings with Roda JC Kerkrade across all competitions, scoring just once in this term. Jordy Thomassen and Teije ten Den have been Helmond’s most prolific players in front of goal throughout the regular season, as they bagged 23 goals between them. Furthermore, Jordy Thomassen already scored two goals in the play-offs in Helmond’s 6-2 aggregate win over Almere City.

Helmond Sport Team News

There are no fresh injury concerns for Helmond ahead of this tie.

Roda JC Kerkrade Preview

Meanwhile, Roda JC Kerkrade were one of the worst teams in the Eredivisie during the regular season, winning just seven of their 34 league outings. Roda finished second from the bottom, just one point behind safety. They have struggled to find the back of the net the entire season, scoring just 26 goals in 34 rounds. Their recent form has been that bad though, as they have only lost two of their last six games in the Eredivisie. However, their away form has definitely been an issue as Roda are currently on a 13-game winless streak across all competitions, scoring just seven goals in this term. The good news is that Roda JC Kerkrade are undefeated in their five meetings with Helmond across all competitions, keeping a clean sheet in four of these. In addition, they have won two and draw one of their three visits to the Lavans Stadion, scoring two goals in two of these. Abdul Ajagun and Mitchell Paulissen have been Roda’s most dangerous players in front of goal throughout their Eredivisie regular season, as the pair bagged nine goals and five assists between them.
