Willem II vs FC Twente Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Willem II and FC Twente will square off at the Koning Willem II Stadion on Sunday at lunchtime, with both teams looking to put their Eredivisie campaign back on track. Willem II suffered a 4-0 defeat on the road at PSV Eindhoven prior to the International break, with Erwin van de Looi’s men conceding all four goals in the second half. On the contrary, FC Twente won 2-1 at home over Heracles thanks to goals from Fredrik Jensen and Danny Holla. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news, match stats and odds all in our SBAT preview.

Betting Predictions and Tips

Willem II have suffered three consecutive 1-2 defeats at home in the Eredivisie this season, while Twente have lost four of their five competitive away fixtures. Twente hold the better record in this tie and they also looked more better than Willem II recently, so I’m backing them to secure a positive result in this one.

Willem II Preview

Willem II’s start to this 2017/18 competitive season has been abysmal as they have lost six in their eight official fixtures. Their sole victory of the season came against Roda JC Kerkrade in the middle of September, but since then they have suffered back-to-back defeats at the hands of SC Heerenveen and Willem II. They are rock bottom of the Eredivisie table tied on three points with the 17th-placed Roda JC Kerkrade, already three points behind safety. Keeping the ball out of their own net has been Willem’s biggest problem throughout this Eredivisie campaign as they hold the worst defensive record in the division with 18 goals conceded in seven rounds. Their recent home form has also been terrible as they have suffered back-to-back 1-2 defeats in their three home league fixtures. In addition, Willem Ii are winless in their last 13 home meetings with FC Twente in the Eredivisie, conceding at least two goals in eleven of these. Fran Sol is enjoying another good season after he was the team’s topscorer last term, as he has already scored three goals and provided one assists for the team.

Willem II Team News

Victor van den Bogert and Asumah Abubakar are both doubts, but Bartholomew Ogbeche is back in training.

FC Twente Preview

Twente looked terrible in the first month of the new season, but they have improved considerably of late. They have won three of the last four games across all competitions, including a 2-1 home victory over Heracles in their most recent Eredivisie fixture. Twente have now collected six points from the opening seven league games and find themselves one point clear of the bottom three. Twente had problems going forward in this early part of the season, as they hold one of the worst attacking records in the division with just eight goals scored in seven rounds. Their away form over the past three months has been terrible as they have only lost once in their last eight games across all competitions. The most worrying thing is that Twente have failed to score in six of their last eight games across all competitions. The only good news is that Twente are undefeated in the last three meetings with Willem II in the Eredivisie, scoring two goals in two of these. Tom Boere and Fredrik Jensen have been Twente’s most prolific players in front of goal throughout this campaign, as the pair bagged four goals and one assist between them.

Haris Vuckic is the only doubtful player for Twente ahead of this trip.
