Reason For RKC vs Utrecht Predictions

  • RKS have lost 5 of their last 6 league games.
  • Utrecht have won 4 of their last 6 matches in all competitions.
  • RKC have conceded 2 or more goals in 4 of their last 6 matches.
  • Utrecht have only kept 1 clean sheet in their last 6 attempts.

RKC look destined for relegation back to the Eerste Divisie

RKC went down 1-0 at home to Sparta Rotterdam last weekend while Utrecht were busy beating Twente 2-1 at home, meaning the gap between the two clubs grew to 26pts. Utrecht head into Sunday’s clash as the clear form favourites having won four and drawn two of their last six matches in league and cup, while RKC have lost five of their last six in the Eredivisie and find themselves rock bottom on 12pts.

Utrecht will be out for revenge this weekend as RKC beat them 1-0 in the pairs’ reverse league fixture in December, which remains the visitors only away win of the campaign. RKC have lost eight of their twelve league games this season while Utrecht have picked up points in nine of their twelve trips on the road, so you can see why we have backed an away win this weekend.

RKC average just 0.67 points per home game while Utrecht average 1.42 points per away game, with the hosts losing 67% of their home matches. RKC score an average of just 0.92 goals per home game and concede 1.58 goals while Utrecht score an average of 1.58 goals and concede 1.67 goals, which is why we have backed a final scoreline of 2-1 in favour of the visitors this Sunday.

Utrecht arrive in good form and with ambitions of European football next season

Over 2.5 goals have been scored in 58% of RKC’s home games and 50% have also seen both teams score while 58% of Utrecht’s away games have produced over 2.5 goals and 83% have ended with both teams scoring, which adds further weight to our prediction for a 2-1 away win this weekend.

RKC have only failed to score in 33% of their home matches and have only lost-to-nil in 25% while Utrecht have only managed to keep their opponents from scoring in 8% of their away games but have only failed to score in 8% as well. RKC have lost via a 1-goal margin seven times so far this season while Utrecht have won by that very same margin on three separate occasions.

We’re confident that Utrecht will win on Sunday and we have predicted a final scoreline of 2-1. The visitors are the form favourites and have outperformed their hosts in all departments so far this season. The visitors don’t keep many clean sheets on the road but the hosts rarely score more than 1-goal per home game which is why we have backed a narrow final scoreline of 2-1.
