Cambuur vs Groningen – Free Betting Tips & Predictions

Cambuur roared to the Eerste Divisie title last term, but how will they cope with the step up in quality this season starting with Sunday’s clash with Groningen? Read our top three expert predictions for the weekend’s fixture below.

The odds presented here are always subject to change. Remember to check with the bookmaker before placing the bet. These odds are provided by Betfred, our recommended bookmaker for the big game.

Over 2.5 Goals

Cambuur were a hugely entertaining team to watch last season when their 38 second-tier fixtures produced a whopping 3.81 goals per 90 minutes. The thrilling, attacking style of football they play under Henk de Jong should make them a welcome addition to the Eredivisie in 2021/22 and we’re tipping their swashbuckling exploits to deliver over 2.5 goals again when Groningen visit on Sunday.

Both Teams to Score

Cambuur’s commitment to attacking football should make them a favourite with BTTS bettors this season and the same market is worth backing on Sunday. Both teams found the net in seven of their last nine competitive fixtures and a stake on the same selection could reward punters again this weekend.

Cambuur Draw no Bet

Cambuur were a formidable force at the Cambuurstadion last season, where they won 15 of their 20 Eerste Divisie home fixtures – a run that included eight victories in their last nine matches on their own patch. Groningen meanwhile, closed out the previous season with just two wins from their final nine games on the road, and they could be vulnerable again when they take on Cambuur.

Cambuur vs Groningen: Match Preview

Cambuur

Cambuur romped home to the Eerste Divisie title last season, pocketing an impressive 92 points while hitting an incredible 109 goals. Their leading marksman last term, Robert Muhren – who scored a huge 38 times – returned to parent club Zulte Waregem in the summer, though innovative tactician Henk de Jong should be able to find a way to replace his goals.

Groningen

Danny Buijs led Groningen to a strong seventh place finish in the Eredivisie last season, though the Pride of the North faltered badly in the subsequent European playoffs. Indeed, Groningen finished the entire 2020/21 campaign poorly, winning just six of their final 21 fixtures overall and Buijs will hope that there isn’t any hangover from those dismal performances when the new campaign kicks off.
