Go Ahead Eagles vs Utrecht – Free Betting Tips & Predictions

Go Ahead Eagles have lost five of their last six home assignments ahead of their clash with Utrecht on Saturday. Read our top three expert predictions for this week’s fixture below.

These odds from Ladbrokes were correct at the time of writing.

Utrecht to Win

Go Ahead Eagles have enjoyed a good run of performances against some of Dutch football’s best teams, though the rigours from that series of tough tests – including their midweek cup clash with PSV – could leave them fatigued for Saturday’s game. Utrecht will be better rested than their hosts and having won two of their last three away fixtures, the Domstedelingen can push for victory on the road again.

Both Teams to Score

Games involving Go Ahead Eagles have provided plenty of exciting, competitive action and six of their last seven fixtures in league and cup produced goals at both ends. The chances of drama developing in both penalty areas seem high on Saturday and when you consider that BTTS has landed in seven of Utrecht’s last eight Eredivisie away games, the same market suddenly becomes an appealing choice again.

Inigo Cordoba to Score Anytime

Spanish attacker Inigo Cordoba maintained his hot-streak on Wednesday evening by notching a consolation goal for Go Ahead Eagles in their KNVB Beker defeat to PSV. Cordoba has now scored in three games on the bounce and the 24-year-old – who has bagged 11 goals in all competitions in 2021/22 – is playing with enough confidence to make a similar impact on Saturday.

Go Ahead Eagles vs Utrecht: Match Preview and Team News

Go Ahead Eagles

Just days after toppling Ajax in the Eredivisie, Go Ahead Eagles gave PSV a real scare in the cup in midweek and they looked on course to cause an upset before Joris Kramer’s red card scuppered their chances. However, while the last week has been productive, Go Ahead have still won just one of their last ten league matches and manager Kees van Wonderen will demand an improvement in results.


Utrecht forced a win at crisis club Heerenveen last weekend and strengthened their hold on seventh spot in the process. Rene Hake’s side have pocketed ten points from the last 15 on offer overall, though they are still waiting for January signing Henk Veerman to really kick into gear. The centre forward has scored just once in four appearances so far since his switch.
