Zwolle Double Chance
Escapology experts Zwolle upset the odds to beat AZ 2-1 last weekend and dragged themselves out of the Eredivisie’s relegation zone in the process and Dick Schreuder’s side could land another decisive blow in the battle for survival on Saturday. RKC have won only one of their last nine league assignments and they failed to produce the goods in each of the last four tests at the Mandemakers Stadion. That poor record suggests Zwolle could be the value bet in the double chance market this weekend.
Under 2.5 Goals
When RKC and PEC last met in Zwolle back in December, little action unfolded in a dour 0-0 draw that didn’t exactly set pulses racing. That was the fourth time on the spin where under 2.5 goals landed in clash between the perennial strugglers and the same market could be worth pursuing this weekend. RKC are averaging less than a goal a game at home this term, while Zwolle are notching less than one goal per away fixture on average and bettors would be wise to stay in the unders land for this low-speed showdown.
Zwolle +1 Goal Handicap
A bet on Zwolle with a +1.0 goal handicap would have landed in 100% of their last four Eredivisie meetings with RKC and we expect that pattern to continue in the clubs’ latest skirmish on Saturday. Joseph Oosting’s RKC managed to score just twice in their last four home matches combined and their lack of oomph could allow Zwolle to make the most of a one goal leg up.
RKC vs Zwolle Rotterdam Match Preview and Team News
Dario Van Den Buijs, Sebbe Augustijns and David Min are all considered doubtful for RKC this weekend. Relegation fears are starting to heighten in Waalwijk following last week’s 2-0 reverse at PSV. Joseph Oosting’s charges are just five points clear of the drop zone and several of the teams behind them are starting to collect wins.
Mustafa Saymak, Dean Huiberts, Samir Lagsir and Sam Kersten are all in the treatment room for Zwolle, though Slobodan Tedic will hope to be available again following a bout of illness. PEC snapped a three game losing streak with a shock win over AZ last time out and five of their six victories in the Eredivisie this season have come after the winter break.
