Utrecht to Win
With four victories in their last five Eredivisie assignments, Utrecht take a superb run of form into Sunday’s game and it looks like they will also be taking on Willem II at an ideal juncture. The Tricolores are winless in four games in all competitions, while their record at the Stadion Galgenwaard also makes for grim reading. Willem II have lost on 12 of their last 13 visits to that venue and we recommend you oppose them again there on Sunday.
Both Teams to Score
Utrecht have claimed 13 points from 15 at home this term, though they kept just a single clean sheet in five matches along the way. That less than impressive defensive record suggests Willem II can land a consolation blow on Sunday. Both teams have scored in four of Utrecht’s five home tussles since the summer in the league and we expect that BTTS pattern to continue this weekend.
Over 2.5 Goals
While Utrecht’s defending has been slightly below par at the Stadion Galgenwaard this season, the hosts have been prolific enough in attack to mask their problems at the other end. Utrecht have scored a whopping 16 times in just five Eredivisie games on home soil this season, while 100% of the same fixtures blew past the over 2.5 goals line. Utrecht’s home skirmishes rarely fail to deliver excitement and we recommend backing over 2.5 goals to hit the net again on Sunday as a result.
Utrecht vs Willem II: Match Preview
Utrecht team news
Simon Gustafson, Tommy St. Jago and Christopher Mamengi will all be sidelined for the hosts on Sunday. Utrecht bounced back from their harrowing 5-1 reverse at AZ with a 2-1 triumph at home to Heerenveen last time out. Rene Hake’s charges have been a formidable force at the Stadion Galgenwaard this term. Indeed, champions and current league leaders Ajax are the only team to have collected more points on their own patch.
Willem II team news
Freek Heerkens and Wesley Spieringhs are missing through injury while Robbin Ruiter is a doubt. Confidence in the Willem II camp was already low following a run of three games without a win in the league, though the Tricolores’ 3-0 defeat at RKC in the cup in midweek would have sent self-belief levels plummeting even further. In addition, Willem II have only managed to win one of their last four games on the road in the Eredivisie.
