FC Dordrecht face off with visiting side MVV at Riwal Hoogwerkers Stadion in this Eerste Divisie clash on Friday.
Our full set of predictions, statistics and match poll for FC Dordrecht v MVV can be seen below - as well as up-to-date odds.
FC Dordrecht will be hoping to bounce back here following the 2-1 Eerste Divisie losing effort in their last game against Helmond Sport.
The only scorer from FC Dordrecht was Aliou Baldé (33'). Peter van Ooijen (47') and Martijn Kaars (52') scored for Helmond Sport.
FC Dordrecht have not been the best at stopping their opponents recently, but they have also found ways to hit the back of the net themselves. Looking at their last 6 games, FC Dordrecht have conceded in 6 of them as well as scoring in 5 of those matches.
Coming into this meeting, FC Dordrecht are undefeated in their previous 2 league matches at home.
MVV will go into this match following on from a 4-1 Eerste Divisie win vs Jong Ajax in their most recent fixture.
For MVV, the goalscorers were Mart Remans (10'), Sven Blummel (28'), Koen Kostons (68') and Ruben van Bommel (85'). Gabriel Misehouy (53') was the scorer for Jong Ajax.
MVV have been a threat going forward of late, having scored 13 times in their previous 6 matches. Having said that, MVV have been somewhat leaky at the back, having also been scored against in 6 of those same outings. That kind of trend won’t necessarily be carried forward here, however.
Coming into this clash, MVV are without a win away from home in their last 3 matches in the league.

Team News: FC Dordrecht
Ruggero Mannes (Unknown Injury) and Malhory Noc (Unknown Injury) will not be taking part for FC Dordrecht gaffer Michele Santoni. Aliou Balde is ineligible for this match because of suspension.
Team News: MVV
Due to a mostly healthy group of players, there is just the sole fitness issue for the MVV manager Maurice Verberne to be concerned about. Clint Essers (Torn Knee Ligament) won’t be in action.
It seems to us that MVV and FC Dordrecht are both more than capable of scoring here.
There shouldn’t be much in it, and a high-scoring draw looks to be quite a realistic result. Therefore, we predict a very competitive encounter with a 2-2 score draw at the end of this one.
