Utrecht vs RKC – Free Betting Tips & Predictions

Can Utrecht continue their strong start to the season with a win against struggling RKC? Read our top three expert predictions for Saturday’s fixture below.

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

Utrecht -1 Goal

Utrecht find themselves in third spot after a strong start to the Eredivisie season and their early success has been powered by some superb performances at home. Utrecht thumped Sparta 4-0 before beating Feyenoord 3-1 in their first two tests at the Stadion Galgenwaard, and the goal-scoring expertise they’ve displayed on home soil should allow them to cover the -1 handicap against struggling RKC.

Over 1.5 Utrecht Team Goals

Relegation candidates RKC have conceded at least twice in each of their last three Eredivisie fixtures and their leaky defence could struggle to contain an Utrecht team that have looked formidable at home. The hosts have scored seven times in just 180 minutes of football at the Stadion Galgenwaard since the summer, and they look an excellent bet in the over 1.5 team goals market as a result.

Mimoun Mahi to Score Anytime

Mimoun Mahi is still waiting to break his duck for the season, though we’re backing the Moroccan to open his account against RKC. The 27-year-old enjoys facing the club from Waalwijk and he notched both home and away against them during the 2020/21 campaign. With that record a factor, Mahi looks a prospect worth backing in the anytime goalscorer market on Saturday.

Utrecht vs RKC: Match Preview

Utrecht team news

Tommy St. Jago, Christopher Mamengi and Remco Balk are sidelined for Utrecht again this weekend as the club aims to bounce back from their disappointing 1-0 reverse to Twente. Mimoun Mahi and Sander van de Streek came off the bench last week and both players could come back into the XI for the visit of RKC.

RKC team news

Joseph Oosting will be without injured trio Joel Pereira, Luuk Wouters and David Min this weekend. RKC picked up just one point from their last three Eredivisie fixtures – a run that might tempt Oosting into making a few changes in a bid to reverse their fortunes. Lenners Daneels, Iliass Bel Hassani and Achraf El Bouchataoui could all force their way into contention with that in mind.
