Tip Reasoning

These two sides drew 1-1 in Eindhoven earlier this season, and there’s unlikely to be much between them again this time around. Just two points separate the teams in the league standings heading into Friday’s fixture at Kras Stadion, and both should be going all out for a victory with the Play-off places in sight.

It’s Volendam who currently hold the advantage in 11th, and Hans De Koning’s men are now just two points behind the top nine following a solid 0-2 success away to Almere City last week.

The result backed up a 1-0 home success over Telstar prior to the festive break, and Palingboeren look to have worked their way past a difficult spell after losing three in a row between match days 17 and 19 against NEC (5-1), Twente (1-2) and Roda JC (2-1).

Volendam weren’t really expected to get results from two of those games though, and overall, fans will be delighted with their side’s efforts since De Koning stepped into the hotseat last October. They’ve racked up 23 points from 13 outings since De Koning’s arrival, and a continuation of that ratio should definitely see them contend for a Play-off place come the end of the season.

They’ll desperately want to make it three successive wins this Friday against FC Eindhoven, but Blauw-witten should prove to be much tougher opposition than that faced by Volendam over the last fortnight.

David Nascimento’s charges have equally excelled as the campaign has worn on, and they’ve well and truly buried a horrendous start which saw them lose their first five Eerste Divisie games.

Eindhoven similarly head into this Friday’s game in search of a third Eerste Divisie win on the bounce following triumphs against Jong AZ (1-2) and NEC (3-2) that have bumped them up to 13th in the standings, and they’re definitely in with a shout here based on their tremendous recent form on the road.

Nascimento’s side have won their last three away and five from their last seven on their travels, so odds of around 11/5 for this contest surely underestimate their chances a little – although they have come up short on their last two visits to Kras Stadion.

That tempers enthusiasm slightly for the visitors, and Volendam do have a decent record here this term with five wins and three draws notched from ten games. Nonetheless, the hosts don’t make great appeal at around 11/10 for what should be a really close affair.

With a cagey contest on the cards, it makes sense to look towards under 2.5 goals which is overpriced based on this season’s stats. 50% Volendam’s games and 45% FC Eindhoven’s matches have featured fewer than 2.5, yet that outcome is priced up at around 13/10 for this Friday’s clash.

There’s plenty of value there so we’re recommending aa three point stake to accompany another 1-1 scoreline between the teams.
