RKC to Win

RKC have won only once in the Eredivisie this season, though they could double their tally of victories at Go Ahead Eagles’ expense on Saturday. The visitors have lost 100% of their away assignments so far this season, while RKC have put in a string of good performances at home with wins against AZ and narrow defeats to Vitesse (1-2) and Willem II (1-2). Go Ahead have been dreadful on the road, so back RKC to harness home advantage this weekend.

Under 2.5 Goals

Any margin of victory RKC do establish this weekend is likely to be slim however. Joseph Oosting’s men are averaging just one goals per 90 minutes at home this season, while Go Ahead Eagles have hit the net just twice in 270 minutes of away action in the Eredivisie so far. With both clubs light on threat in the final third, we recommend pursuing the under 2.5 goals line on Saturday.

Half Time Result: RKC

RKC’s first-half record this season is at odds with their lowly league position and the club have been trailing at the break just once in their opening seven Eredivisie fixtures this term. The knack for rocketing out of the blocks quickly could catch a fragile-looking Go Ahead Eagles side cold and that in turn opens up an opportunity to back the hosts to be leading at the interval at the Mandemakers Stadion.

RKC team news

Goalkeeper Joel Pereira is still in the treatment room and won’t feature for RKC this weekend though David Min will hope to be fit and available for selection. RKC slipped to a 1-0 reverse at Heracles in their last outing – a result that pushed their winless run to a disappointing six games. RKC have been performing to a decent standard however and it shouldn’t be long before their luck changes.

Go Ahead Eagles team news

Go Ahead Eagles could be without three attackers on Saturday, with Jacob Mulenga, Sam Crowther and Frank Ross all out with varying issues. Eagles were trounced 5-0 by a rejuvenated AZ last Sunday and the manner of their defeat would have been a major concern for their supporters and manager Kees van Wonderen. Go Ahead have shipped a massive ten goals in their last two away tests.
