Looking at their form, and FC Zwolle have been scored against in 6 of their last 6 matches, seeing opposing sides hit 10 goals in all. At the back, Blauwvingers just haven’t been too solid at all. Such a trend won’t necessarily be sustained into this next game, however.
Looking at the pre-match facts, FC Zwolle:
- are undefeated by FC Emmen when they've played them away from home in the last 5 league games. A very good record, indeed.
- are without a win away from home in their last 2 league games.
