Maastricht vs De Graafschap Key Predictions from Punditfeed

In this article, we’ll provide our well-researched Maastricht vs De Graafschap predictions for this week in the Eerste Divisie.

Maastricht or Draw

De Graafschap are the favourites here, which makes sense considering they’ve won six of their last seven encounters with Maastricht. However, this will be a tricky fixture for the visitors, as Maastricht have been one of the best home teams in the Eerste Divisie this season.

As a matter of fact, Maastricht are unbeaten at home, with seven wins and two draws in nine home games. In contrast, De Graafschap have managed just two wins in eight matches away from home. That said, we don’t think Maastricht will lose this game at home.

Maastricht to Draw First Blood

We would like to point out that Maastricht have a tendency to start strong; and as a result, they usually draw first blood. Maurice Verbene’s men opened the scoring in five of their last six matches. On the other hand, De Graafschap tend to start slow, and they usually concede first because of that.

It’s important to point out that the visitors have scored just once in their last three games; they allowed the first goal in four of their last five matches too. Taking everything into account, we are fairly confident that Maastricht will open the scoring tonight.

Over 2.5 Total Goals

Maastricht and De Graafschap have squared off against each other a fair few times, and those clashes have mostly been on the high-scoring side. As a matter of fact, seven of the last eight meetings between these teams went above the 2.5 goal mark.

In the same vein, both teams have seen their fair share of high-scoring games lately; as five of Maastricht’s last seven, and five of De Graafschap’s last six matches saw at least three goals scored. On that note, we should expect the goals to flow in this match.

Maastricht vs De Graafschap squad news and match preview

Maastricht

Maastricht have been one of the best teams in the Eerste Divisie this season. They are third on the league table, with 10 wins in 17 matches. However, Maurice Verbene’s men have struggled a bit lately, losing two of their last three matches; they’ll set their sights on all three available points as De Graafschap come visiting.

De Graafschap

De Graafschap have been going through a rough patch in recent weeks. They are coming off three consecutive losses — a three-game stretch where they allowed eight goals whilst scoring just once. Adrie Poldervaart’s men will look to snap their losing streak tonight, and they’ll fancy their chances against Maastricht.
