Reason For RKC vs PEC Zwolle Predictions

  • Zwolle are unbeaten in their last 7 competitive and non-competitive matches against RKC.
  • RKC have lost 5 of their last 6 matches.
  • Zwolle are unbeaten in their last 3 league games.
  • Zwolle have only kept clean sheets in 9% of their away games.

RKC have a dire home record in the Eredivisie

RKC were thrashed 4-0 away at high-flying AZ last time out while Zwolle won 1-0 at home against Groningen meaning that despite there only being three places between the pair in the table, there are 10pts separating the clubs. Since 2012 Zwolle have remained unbeaten in their seven matches against RKC, picking up four wins, so you can see why we have backed the visitors with a double chance bet this weekend.

Zwolle head into Saturday’s match as the form favourites despite only winning one, drawing two, and losing three of their last six matches (including friendlies), as RKC have lost five of their last six outings and already look destined for relegation back to the Eerste Divisie.

The hosts have performed as poorly at home as the visitors have on the road this season, with both clubs picking up 7pts, but Zwolle are unbeaten in their last three matches and will fancy their chances of success this weekend having already thrashed RKC 6-2 in September’s reverse fixture.

Zwolle have form in their favour but need to improve on the road

RKC score an average of 1.10 goals per home game and concede 1.80 goals, which is why we have backed Zwolle to claim a narrow 2-1 win this weekend. Over 2.5 goals have been scored in 70% of RKC’s home matches as well as in 64% of Zwolle’s away games, while both teams have scored in 60% of the hosts’ home games as well.

Both teams have poor defensive records this season which is why we are expecting goals to go in at both ends of the pitch this Saturday, especially as the hosts have only kept clean sheets in 20% of their home games and have only failed to score in 20%. Zwolle have kept clean sheets in just 9% of their away games and are likely to need to score at least 2-goals on Saturday to claim all 3pts.

We’re confident that a double chance bet on the visitors is the best way to go this weekend and we have predicted a narrow final scoreline of 2-1. Zwolle are unbeaten in their last three matches and have a very good record against RKC over recent years, but due to their own disappointing form on the road, we have had to back a double chance bet rather than an outright win for the visitors this weekend.
