For all of our match predictions, pre-game poll and statistics for Willem II v FC Twente, scroll down (inc. the best betting odds).
Willem II will be hoping to bounce back here after the 1-4 Eredivisie loss in their previous game against Feyenoord.
The only name on the scoresheet from Willem II was Vangelis Pavlidis (13'). Ridgeciano Haps (22'), Bryan Linssen (48') and Steven Berghuis (56', 77') scored for Feyenoord.
Fixtures involving Willem II have usually been lively encounters recently with a lot of goalmouth action being a real hallmark. Over their past six clashes, a grand total of 22 goals have flown in for both sides combined (at an average of 3.67 goals per game) with 11 of those coming from Tricolores.
Heading into this fixture, Willem II are unbeaten in the league by FC Twente in their last 3 matches.
In their previous fixture, FC Twente drew 1-1 in the Eredivisie tie with FC Emmen.
The only name on the scoresheet from FC Twente was Václav Černý (48'). Michael de Leeuw (65') was the scorer for FC Emmen.
The stats tell the story, and FC Twente have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 games, with opponents netting 7 goals overall. Defensively, De Tukkers could really do with shoring things up. That trend isn’t assured to follow through into this next game, of course.
Their prior results show that FC Twente:
- have not won against Willem II when they've played them away from home in the last 2 matches in the league.
- are without an away win for the past 11 matches in the league. It's not a good run at all.
Head to head
Looking at the statistics for their head to head duels stretching back to 02/04/2016, there has been little to separate the clubs with Willem II winning 2 of those games, FC Twente 2 and 2 being drawn in normal time.
A sum of 17 goals were scored between the two sides in this period, with 9 from Tricolores and 8 netted by De Tukkers. The average number of goals per game works out to 2.83.
Team News: Willem II
Kwasi Okyere Wriedt (Metatarsal Fracture), Leeroy Owusu (Knock) and Ché Nunnely (Thigh Problems) won’t be playing for Willem II gaffer Adrie Koster.
Team News: FC Twente
Thanks to a completely healthy squad ready to go, FC Twente manager Ron Jans doesn’t have any fitness concerns to report before this clash.
We’re thinking that FC Twente will need to apply a lot of pressure to get anything against this Willem II lineup who will likely emerge victorious.
We’re therefore predicting a good tussle with a 1-0 winning score for Willem II when the full-time whistle blows.
There should be little in it.
