Telstar will arrive at De Geusselt on Friday for the Eerste Divisie fixture with home team MVV.
Our MVV v Telstar predictions, statistics and match poll can be seen below - plus the latest betting odds.
MVV will want to continue from where they left off last time out with the 1-0 Eerste Divisie success over Excelsior.
The only name on the scoresheet from MVV was Djibril Dianessy (88').
It’s been a rare occasion in recent games that MVV haven’t conceded. The reality is that MVV have been scored against in 5 of their previous 6 games, leaking 7 goals in the process. We will just have to find out if that trend will be sustained here.
Heading into this fixture, MVV haven't been defeated in their previous 3 league matches at home.
In their last game, Telstar drew 1-1 in the Eerste Divisie tie with FC Eindhoven.
The only name on the scoresheet from Telstar was Glynor Plet (23'). Bart Biemans (94') was the scorer for FC Eindhoven.
Telstar have regularly broken through opposing defences in their most recent fixtures, scoring 9 goals in their previous 6 matches. While their manager Andries Jonker will no doubt take that as a positive sign, Witte Leeuwen can also improve defensively after being scored against in 6 of those same outings.
Going into this contest, Telstar haven’t won away from home in the past 2 league matches.
Head to head
Looking at their past head-to-head clashes going back to 12/01/2018 tells us that MVV have won 3 of them & Telstar 2, with the number of draws being 1.
12 goals were yielded between them throughout the course of those matches, with 7 from MVV and 5 coming from Witte Leeuwen. That’s an average goals per game figure of 2.
The previous league contest featuring these sides was Eerste Divisie match day 3 on 13/09/2020 which ended up with the score at Telstar 1-2 MVV.
The referee was Edgar Bijl.
Team News: MVV
Oussama Zamouri (Cruciate Ligament Injury), Shermar Martina (Knock), Timo Stavitski (Knock) and Koen Kostons (Ankle Injury) aren’t available for MVV boss Darije Kalezić.
Team News: Telstar
Telstar boss Andries Jonker has multiple availability issues to deal with. Yaël Liesdek (Knock), Tom Overtoom (Knock), Robin Eindhoven (Knock), Kick Groot (Knock), Anass Najah (Knock), Gyliano van Velzen (Knock), Daniel Adshead (Knock), Frank Korpershoek (Ankle Injury), Siebe Vandermeulen (Knock), Richelor Sprangers (Knock) and Sven van Doorm (Knock) are not ready for selection.
In our opinion, MVV may well find it hard to score goals against this Telstar lineup who we reckon should be able to grind out a win.
We therefore think that it’s going to be a very competitive game with a 0-1 winning score for Telstar when all is said and done.
Should be a close one.
