MVV Maastricht vs Roda JC Kerkrade Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Maastricht will be looking to make their return in the Eredivisie after 17 years when they welcome Roda JC Kerkrade at the De Geusselt on Thursday night for the first leg of their Eredivisie promotion/relegation play-offs final. Maastricht picked up a hard-fought 2-3 aggregate win over Cambuur in the Semi-finals thanks to goals from Kelechi Nwakali, Steven Pereira and Thomas Verheijdt. The latter has scored the winning goal in the first leg against Cambuur to produce the surprise of the Semi-finals round. On the flip side, Roda JC Kerkrade narrowly beat Helmond Sport 1-2 in the Semi-finals thanks to goals from Guliano van Velzen and Dani Schahin. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT preview.

Betting Predictions and Tips

Maastricht’s home form over the past six months have been impressive as they are undefeated in the last 14 home fixtures across all competitions. On the other hand, Roda were on a 13-game winless streak across all competitions prior to their 0-1 win at Helmond Sport in their most recent trip. I’m not expecting goals in this one as both sides have struggled to find the back of the net in the Semi-finals. Furthermore, Roda had the worst attacking record in the Eredivisie during the regular season.

MVV Maastricht Preview

Maastricht finally returned to winning ways a few days ago, and it was the perfect moment, as they won 1-2 on the road at Cambuur in the second leg of their tie to qualify for this stage of the playoffs. Prior to this win, Maastricht were on a nine-game winless streak across all competitions. Maastricht can count on their home form ahead of this clash as they are undefeated in the last 14 home fixtures across all competitions. Although, nine of the last ten home games have ended in draws. Furthermore, Maastricht are unbeaten in their three home meetings with Roda JC Kerkrade across all competitions, conceding just one goal in the process. The last time Maastricht got promoted to the Eredivisie was back in 1997, and after three seasons in the Dutch top tier, they were relegated back to the Eerste Divisie. Maastricht should feel confident ahead of this tie as they managed to beat Roda JC Kerkrade 3-1 at home in their most recent meeting back in February 2015. Thomas Verheijdt is a player to watch here as he was the top scorer during the regular season with eleven goals under his belt, and he has also scored once in the playoffs so far.

Steven Pereira is the only absentee for Maastricht ahead of this game, as he is missing through suspension.

Roda JC Kerkrade Preview

Roda JC Kerkrade, on the other hand, finished second from tbottom in the Eredivisie table, just one point behind safety. The main reason for their struggle has been their inability to find the back of the net, as Roda had the worst attacking record in the division with just 26 goals scored in 34 league outings. Their top scorer was Abdul Ajagun with only five goals and two assists under his belt in his 33 league appearances. Roda JC Kerkrade haven’t been at their best in the Semi-finals but they eventually managed to win their two-legged tie against Helmond Sport and they should feel confident ahead of this tie. Roda JC Kerkrade lost just one of their six meetings with Maastricht across all competitions while keeping three clean sheets. The bad news is that Roda JC Kerkrade have struggled for consistency on the road throughout this 2016/17 competitive season, winning just two of their 19 away games across all competitions. Roda were on a 13-game winless streak across all competitions prior to their 0-1 win at Helmond Sport in their most recent trip. Furthermore, Roda are winless in their three visits to the De Geusselt, scoring just once in this term.

Marcos Gullon is the only doubtful player ahead of this trip.
