PEC Zwolle Preview

PEC Zwolle were lucky to secure their Eredivisie status last season as they finished only in 14th spot in the standings, just one point clear of the bottom three. However, they looked like a completely different team in pre-season, winning seven and drawing two of their nine friendly fixtures. The most impressive thing is that Zwolle have only conceded three goals in this term. These are good news as Zwolle looked awful at the back last season, conceding 67 goals in 34 league fixtures. In terms of transfers, five players left the club, and six new players joined, although all of them came on free transfers. Nicolai Brock-Madsen has been their last season’s top scorer with just seven goals under his belt, but he has returned to Birmingham City after finishing his loan spell. The good news is that Youness Mokhtar looked sharp in pre-season and he will probably be Zwolle’s men responsible for goals this season. PEC Zwolle can count on their recent home form ahead of this tie as they have only lost once in their last eight home fixtures across all competitions. Furthermore, Zwolle are undefeated in their six home meetings with Roda JC Kerkrade, scoring three goals in four of these.

PEC Zwolle Team News

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

Roda JC Kerkrade Preview

On the contrary, Roda JC Kerkrade finished second from the bottom in the Eredivisie table last season, just one point behind safety. However, Roda did well to beat Helmond and Maastricht in the promotion/relegation play-offs to avoid the drop. Roda struggled to find the back of the net last season as they had the worst offensive record in the division with just 26 goals scored in 34 rounds. Their top scorer was Abdul Ajagun, but he went back to Panathinaikos after his loan spell. Roda brought in Anderlecht’s young striker Jorn Vancamp on loan as a replacement, along with Hidde Jurjus, Simon Gustafson, Mario Engels and Filip Kurto. Roda had a short but impeccable pre-season campaign, winning all of their three friendlies. Roda need to improve their away form if they are to survive in the Eredivisie this season as they were the second worst away team last term, winning just once in 17 league fixtures. Furthermore, Roda are winless in their six visits to the MACPARK Stadion, scoring just five goals in this term.

Roda JC Kerkrade Team News

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