Willem II vs De Graafschap Top Picks and Predictions

The home team has already been assured of their place in the promotion playoffs while De Graafschap is the first team behind the line.

Draw

There weren’t many draws played between these teams in recent times, the last time they split the game was in 2016 which was six matches ago. However, for this particular Willem II vs De Graafschap prediction, a draw is viable for different reasons. The hosts are looking to extend their unbeaten run that now stretches six games while De Graafschap needs a win, but they will be eager to even get a point that would get them a little bit closer to the final eight. Willem II won their first h2h match this season with a convincing 3-0 victory.

Under 2.5 Goals

With everything that is at stake for this Willem II vs De Graafschap match, there is little doubt that the visiting team will be hard-pressed not to concede a goal. Willem can play a bit relaxed due to their status in the standings, but for the visiting team, it is a different kind of situation. Willem had 13 ‘under’ matches over the 34 games thus far, and they also had three from their past five outings. De Graafschap had two more games where fewer than three goals were scored, but they also had one fewer under 2.5 goals match in a five-game span.

Both Teams to Score

We might go for a low-scoring match, but that doesn’t mean that both teams can’t score a goal. Courtesy of their h2h record, four of the last five meetings they had over the last few years had both teams scoring at least a goal. Looking at their current season’s stats, Willem II only had two BTTS games from their past five while their opponent on this day had three that covered the bet in question.

Willem II vs De Graafschap Team News and Preview

Willem II

The Tilburg outfit is good enough to play for direct promotion to Eredivisie, however, an earlier slump in form cost them some valuable points and now they will have to earn the privilege to play with the Dutch elite through the extra playoffs rounds. Nick Doodeman is doubtful to play this weekend.

De Graafschap

The guest team’s defensive woes lately got them in trouble and without a win for the past two games they are five points away from a top-eight spot. There are still four matches remaining before the end of the season, and there can’t be any more negative results if the team wants to have a chance at promotion.
