PEC Zwolle vs FC Twente Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

FC Twente are still searching for their first victory of the new Eredivisie season when they travel to the MACPARK Stadion to take on PEC Zwolle on Saturday evening. PEC Zwolle threw away a one-goal lead following Younes Mokhtar goal in the 13th minute to secure only a 1-1 draw on the road at Sparta Rotterdam. On the other hand, FC Twente suffered a 1-2 home loss at the hands of the newly-promoted Venlo last weekend, with their consolation goal being scored by Tom Boere. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT preview.

Betting Predictions and Tips

It’s difficult to predict the winner here as PEC are the in-form team in this tie, but Twente hold the better head-to-head record. There should be goals at both ends of the field as the most recent five meetings between these two sides have seen both teams getting on the scoresheet. In addition, each of those last five games have seen at least three goals scored.

PEC Zwolle Preview

PEC Zwolle have enjoyed a strong pre-season campaign and kicked off the new Eredivisie campaign in a similar manner, beating Roda JC Kerkrade 4-2 and drawing 1-1 on the road at Sparta Rotterdam. This leaves PEC in 6th spot in the Eredivisie table tied on four points with the 7th-placed Heracles. Furthermore, PEC Zwolle have enjoyed a strong run of form on home soil over the past six months, losing just once in their last nine home fixtures across all competitions. Zwolle are currently on a four-game winning streak at home, scoring at least two goals in each of these. The bad news is that PEC Zwolle have only won once in their last six home meetings with FC Twente across all competitions. They barely avoided the drop last season, but I don’t think that they will have the same luck again this season. Last season’s top scorer Nicolai Brock-Madsen has returned to his club Birmingham this summer and PEC haven’t bought any decent replacements. Actually, all of their five goals this season have been scored by five different players. Youness Mokhtar has been Zwolle’s standout player over the past month as he managed to score five goals, including three friendly fixtures.

PEC Zwolle Team News

Wouter Marinus is the only doubtful player for PEC Zwolle ahead of this clash.

FC Twente Preview

On the contrary, FC Twente have endured a disappointing run of form over the past month and a half, winning just once in their last ten games across all competitions. Actually, Twente have only won one of their last nine games in the Eredivisie. They come into this tie on the back of a seven-game winless streak, including back-to-back 2-1 defeats at the hands of Feyenoord and Venlo in the opening two rounds of the new Eredivisie campaign. Keeping the ball out of their own net has been their biggest problem in this term, as they have conceded at least two goals in five of their last six games across all competitions. Despite their poor run of form, Twente hold a solid head-to-head record over PEC Zwolle as they have won twice and drawn once in the last three meetings between these two. Furthermore, Twente have scored two goals in each of these games. The bad news is that Twente’s away form over the past nine months has been terrible as they have only won four of their last 20 games across all competitions. In addition, they have only scored once in their last four away games across all competitions.

FC Twente Team News

Hidde ter Avest and Dejan Trajkovski are both doubts, but Haris Vuckic is back in training following his leg injury.
