Their past results show that FC Oss:
- have left without a victory over FC Emmen in their previous 4 matches in the league.
- are without a win at home for the past 3 league matches.
After being defeated in their last game at the hands of Excelsior in Eerste Divisie competition, FC Emmen and their travelling supporters will be hoping that they can get a better result in this one.
In that match, FC Emmen managed 66% possession and 15 attempts at goal with 5 of them on target. For their opponents, Excelsior had 6 shots on goal with 1 on target. Thijs Dallinga (32') scored for Excelsior.
A run of reliable displays from the FC Emmen defensive players has resulted in their ‘goals against’ tally standing at 4 from their past 6 fixtures overall. Over that same period, their own attack force has managed to score 12. Such a pattern might not follow through into this next game, of course.
Looking at the pre-match facts, FC Emmen:
- haven't been beaten by FC Oss when having played them away from home in the previous 4 league matches. A very good record, indeed.
- haven't been defeated in their previous 2 away league matches.

Team News: FC Oss
The FC Oss boss Bob Peeters has zero fitness worries at all coming into this match with a completely injury-free squad to pick from.
Team News: FC Emmen
FC Emmen manager Dick Lukkien has not got a full squad to pick from. Jeff Hardeveld (Knock), Lentini Caciano (Knee Injury), Reda Kharchouch (Muscle partial avulsion), Lucas Bernadou (Knock) and Peet Bijen (Heel Bone Injury) are those who can’t be considered. Miguel Araujo will not be able to play in this game through being suspended.
We think that FC Oss might have a difficult job to hit the back of the net against this FC Emmen lineup who we think should win and very possibly keep a clean sheet.
Our tip is therefore for a narrow 0-1 win for FC Emmen at the end of this game.
