The best Groningen vs Willem II predictions and picks

Groningen to win

Last season wasn’t one to remember for Groningen, with relegation from the Eredivisie secured thanks to a bottom-placed finish. They only managed to pick up 18 points throughout the season but they will be hopeful of an immediate return to the nation’s top league this season. They started the season off well with a 4-1 victory before succumbing to a 1-0 loss away to Jong Utrecht. Back on home turf on Sunday, we expect them to get their second win of the season.


In Willem II’s first two games of the season, they are yet to blank in front of goal which bodes well for their chances this season. Groningen, on the other hand, scored four in one game before blanking in their second match against Jong Utrecht. In Willem II’s only away game so far, the BTTS market was covered and the same can be said for Groningen’s only home game of the season to date. This makes us confident that this market is a good one to back for this match-up.

Groningen to score first

When in the Eerste Divisie, Groningen have made a habit of being quick starters and they showed that they are planning on being the same again this season on the opening day against Jong Ajax. Meanwhile, Willem II are a side that prefer to sit back and let the other team take the initiative. If there are to be goals in this one then Groningen are more likely to be the ones to get the first.

Groningen vs Willem II: Preview and team news


Groningen are starting this season under the tutelage of Dick Lukkien, a man with experience of leading teams out of the Eerste Divisie and into the Eredivisie. Things haven’t started too badly, with one win and one draw, but they will be hoping that another home win here can move them higher up the table before gameweek four.

Willem II

Like Groningen, Willem II are another one of the favourites to seal promotion this season after missing out in the playoffs last season. They are unbeaten so far this season but will know they will have to be at their best on Sunday if they are to get anything away at Groningen.
