Groningen to Win

With seven losses in a row to end the last season, Groningen dropped to the lower half of the standings. Meanwhile, Volendam earned promotion by finishing second in Eerste Divisie.

However, enough time has passed since last season and we don’t think Groningen will have any confidence issues ahead of their first-round matchup with the newly-promoted team. So, we expect them to beat Volendam in this game.

Over 2.5 Total Goals

The last time these two teams met was back in 2014 and that game has gone over 2.5 total goals. Since that was so long ago, it doesn’t really impact our bet, but we still expect at least three goals in this match.

After all, Groningen averaged 2.82 goals per game in Eredivisie last year, while Volendam averaged 3.53 goals per game in the second rank of Dutch football last season.

Both Teams to Score – Yes

We did not see both teams score in that one h2h meetings between Groningen and Volendam played many years ago, but we can see that happening in their duel on Sunday.

The reason is simple – both teams have scored in 65% of all Groningen matches in the league last season, while the same is true for 74% of all Volendam games last year in Eerste Divisie.

Groningen vs Volendam preview: Can the guests surprise us all?

Groningen

Not only did Groningen finish 12th in the Dutch league last season, they also lost their last six games in Eredivisie to end it. That certainly left a bitter taste for their fans and they are hoping that their team can do much better in the new season. Ahead of the new season, Jan Hoekstra is the only injured player at the club.

Volendam

Last season was a great one for Volendam since the team managed to finish second in Eerste Divisie and earn a direct promotion to the top flight of Dutch football. The next goal is staying up, which will be a lot easier said than done. Meanwhile, Calvin Twigt is injured right now and will miss the first round.
