MVV Maastricht vs Cambuur Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Maastricht will be looking for a place in the Eredivisie relegation play-offs final when they welcome Cambuur at the De Geusselt on Thursday evening for the first leg of their Semi-finals tie. Maastricht fought back from one-goal down to secure a 1-1 home draw against Waalwijk thanks to a first-half goal from Patrick N’Koyi. Meanwhile, Cambuur lost 2-1 on the road at Jong Ajax a fortnight ago on the final day of the regular Eerste Divisie season, with their consolation goal being scored from the spot by Erik Bakker 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

I’m going with Maastricht to secure at least a draw here, as their home form throughout the season has been very solid, losing just two of their 19 home league fixtures. In addition, they did well to beat Cambuur 2-1 at home in their most recent meeting at the De Geusselt. I’m also expecting goals as the previous four meetings between these two sides have seen at least three goals scored.

MVV Maastricht Preview

Maastricht ended their Eerste Divisie in a disappointing manner, drawing five and losing three of their last eight league outings. Last time out, they managed a 1-1 home draw against Waalwijk, but it has to be said that they played in ten men the entire second half after Kuipers saw red just before the break. Despite their terrible run of form, Maastricht still finished the season in a respectable 7th spot with 59 points to their name after 38 rounds. Maastricht looked very well-organized at the back throughout their regular season, conceding just 45 goals in 38 league outings. Maastricht have definitely been a strong side at home soil this season, losing just two of their 19 home league fixtures. They are currently on a 13-game unbeaten streak at home, but eight of the most recent nine of these have ended in draws. Furthermore, Maastricht picked up a narrow 2-1 win over Cambuur in their most recent home meeting with the Yellow-Blues. Thomas Verheijdt was Maastricht’s topscorer during the regular season with 11 goals under his belt, while Joeri Schroijen and Patrick N’Koyi bagged 17 goals between them.

MVV Maastricht Team News

Nick Kuipers is missing through suspension ahead of this clash.

Cambuur Preview

On the other hand, Cambuur were on an eight-game unbeaten streak in the Eerste Divisie prior to their narrow 2-1 away loss at Jong Ajax on the final day of the regular season. Although, they were already qualified for the play-offs as they finished the season in 3rd spot, nine points clear of the current leaders. Cambuur’s impressive campaign was largely based on their prolific attack, as they had the second best offensive record in the division with 78 goals scored in 38 league outings. Sander van de Streek has been outstanding for Cambuur throughout the regular season, scoring 22 goals in 33 league appearances. Martijn Barto and Stefano Lilipaly have also been in fine shape, as the pair bagged 25 goals between them. Cambuur also had a good run in the KNVB Beker Cup, as they managed to reach the Semi-finals where they suffered a penalty-shootout defeat at the hands of the Eredivisie side AZ Alkmaar. On the road, Cambuur were on a five-game unbeaten streak in the Eerste Divisie prior to their 2-1 loss at Jong Ajax in their most recent league trip. Furthermore, Cambuur should feel confident ahead of this tie as they beat Maastricht 4-0 in the most recent meeting towards the end of February.

Cambuur Team News

There are no fresh injury concerns for Cambuur ahead of this tie, but Sander van de Streek is only one yellow-card away from suspension.
