Go Ahead Eagles

The overall average number of goals per match during that time is 3, with the average number of goals for Trots aan de IJssel coming out as 1. Regardless, it remains to be seen if such a trend might be replicated in this game.

Team News: SC Cambuur
SC Cambuur manager Henk de Jong does not have any fitness worries to speak of before this game owing to a completely injury-free group available to select from.
Team News: Go Ahead Eagles
GA Eagles boss Kees van Wonderen has to choose from a squad that has some fitness concerns. Martijn Berden (Knee Injury), Wout Droste (Cruciate Ligament Rupture), Frank Ross (Tibial plateau contusion) and Antoine Rabillard (Bruised Foot) can’t be considered.
In our view, Go Ahead Eagles would be disappointed if they were not to breach the defence of this SC Cambuur team, however it might not be as many as the goals that they could concede.
We’re tipping a close game with a 2-1 winning margin for SC Cambuur at the end of the match. It should be a decent one.
