For all of our match predictions, pre-game poll and statistics for FC Eindhoven v Den Bosch, scroll down - plus the latest match odds.
FC Eindhoven will be hoping to return to winning ways here after the 1-0 Eerste Divisie defeat last time out to Helmond Sport.
In that match, FC Eindhoven had 46% possession and 13 shots at goal with 1 on target. On the other side, Helmond Sport had 14 attempts on goal with 5 of them on target. Alec Van Hoorenbeeck (90') was the scorer for Helmond Sport.
A recurring trait of recent FC Eindhoven games is seeing a zero in the scoreline.
Taking their prior sextet of clashes before this one, in 5 of them a bet on both teams scoring would've been a losing one. We will have to find out whether or not that trend can be sustained into this next match.
Their past results show that FC Eindhoven:
- have not lost a league tie with Den Bosch in their last 3 games.
- haven't won against Den Bosch in their last 2 league games.
Den Bosch head into the meeting after a 7-0 Eerste Divisie win as they beat Roda JC Kerkrade in their last game.
In that game, Den Bosch managed 47% possession and 15 shots at goal with 8 on target. For Den Bosch, the goalscorers were Jizz Hornkamp (8', 82'), Romano Postema (9', 48', 58'), Steven van der Heijden (13') and Soufyan Ahannach (40'). Roda JC Kerkrade got 17 attempts at goal with 5 of them on target.
A very clinical Den Bosch have managed to bag a plethora of goals over their last 6 clashes (21 to be precise). That translates to an enviable average of 3.5 goals scored per game for this period.
Head to head
Looking at their prior head to head clashes going back to 22/09/2017 shows that FC Eindhoven have won 1 of them & Den Bosch 3, with the tally of drawn matches being 2.

Team News: FC Eindhoven
Cas Faber (Cruciate Ligament Injury), Flor Van Den Eynden (Knock), Jorn Vancamp (groin strain) and Justin Ogenia (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) are not available for FC Eindhoven gaffer Ernie Brandts.
Team News: Den Bosch
Den Bosch manager Jack de Gier has to choose from a squad that has some fitness concerns. Christophe van Zutphen (Knock), Adrien Bongiovanni (Shoulder Injury), Paco van Moorsel (Calf Injury), Teun van Grunsven (Knock), Najim Haidary (Knock), Lorenzo Soares Fonseca (Abdominal muscles injury), Jordy van der Winden (Knee Surgery) and Rik Mulders (Knock) will not be playing here.
We’re of the opinion that FC Eindhoven can and should stay in control for long periods of time and should be able to convert a few of the chances that they create.
At the other end, Den Bosch could well struggle to make a breakthrough but we do think that it’s more than likely that they will be getting enough chances to score, too.
We therefore think that it’s going to be a controlled 3-1 win for FC Eindhoven at the end of the 90 minutes.
