The away team did not start well, but they know they can surprise, as they have in recent years. The home team will go all out from the start to secure the three points and, with them, the Eerste Divisie lead. Check out the top Roda JC vs Den Bosch prediction and all of the prior event analyses.
Roda JC vs Jong AZ Predictions and Top Odds
Roda Kerkrade will play an all-important match against Jong AZ ’s reserve squad in their quest to break into the top eight of the Eerste Divisie.
Both Teams to Score – No
Even though Jong AZ has been proficient in scoring this season, that can’t be said about Roda. They had four out of the last five matches without both teams scoring a goal, and their lack of opportunities to score goals hurt their chances of progressing into a fight for playoff promotion. That is a strange circumstance for Roda because they have a player who is the league’s top scorer, Dylan Vente. He scored 17 times this season. Jong AZ had four out of the last five outings with both teams scoring a goal. When it comes to their h2h matchup, four games out of the last five they played ended with BTTS on the negative side.
Over 2.5 Goals
Despite the NO for BTTS in the first pick, the second Roda JC vs Jong AZ prediction will be going for more than two goals in a match. That goes in direct consequence of Jong AZ Alkmaar team having four from the last five matches with that kind of statistics, and even Roda getting it done in the last two matches they played. For the season, Roda had 15 over 2.5 goals matches while Jong AZ had 17. However, only one out of their last five h2h games ended with ‘over’ goals.
Roda has a lot more to lose in this match than their opponents, and they are expected to try and figure out how to subdue their opposition’s better attack. Roda JC vs Jong AZ will be about the home team getting important points for the chance to break into the top eight of the rankings and giving themselves a chance of playing for promotion.
Team Information and Preview for Roda JC vs Jong AZ
With the season entering the final ten rounds of matches, it seems that the Kerkrade team is dropping in the level of form significantly. They have lost four out of their last five matches with the only win coming against the worst club in the league, Jong Utrecht. They are now facing another reserve team from the country’s best football systems, AZ Alkmaar. There are no injury concerns for coach Edwin de Graaf.
The young AZ Alkmaar squad has been the best this season out of all reserve teams for the Top Division clubs which is something to ponder about. They are also the only one out of those teams to have a positive goal difference standing at 48-46. Goalkeeper Sem Westerveld is injured and won’t be traveling to Kerkrade.
Roda JC vs Jong AZ h2h and stats
These sides have met four times in the last two seasons, with each team winning once away and once at home. I don’t think the pain will be as even as it has been in recent times due to the extremely diverse scenario in which each team finds itself.
