FC Den Bosch form and stats

FC Den Bosch have collected 21 points from their Eerste Divisie home games so far after 5-6-2.

FC Den Bosch are returning here after visiting Roda JC Kerkrade in a Eerste Divisie game and winning with a 5-1 scoreline. Junior Van Der Velden, Ruben Rodrigues and Pedro Marques (2) scored the goal(s). Ahead of that match, FC Den Bosch won a home game hosting Jong AZ (3-0).

As mentioned above, FC Den Bosch "killed" Roda JC Kerkrade in their previous game. They need to reset completely for this one and beware of complacency.

The hosts are favourites to win this game, with an estimated chance of about 55-60% of that outcome. Earlier FC Den Bosch matches with similar probabilities have ended with zero wins, one draw and zero defeats (from one game).

With an average of more than two goals per home game in the league (27 in 13 games), FC Den Bosch's attacking play is working. FC Den Bosch have conceded 16 in these home matches.

Jong Utrecht form and stats

There's been little loot from Jong Utrecht's travels as they have only collected 9 points from 12 away games in the Eerste Divisie. Jong Utrecht only have 2 wins to counter their 7 defeats and 3 draws. With two straight losses from their last two away games, Jong Utrecht are hoping that it's time for some travel points again.

The supporters enjoyed Jong Utrecht's previous game versus Jong Ajax (placed 2nd), a Eerste Divisie 7-2 win played at home. A 1-1 draw was the result before that, hosting FC Dordrecht.

As you can tell from the results above, Jong Utrecht was very dominant against Jong Ajax, winning the match with a scoreline that even the finest fortune teller couldn't predict. 7-2 (!) with Justin Lonwijk, Odysseus Velanas (2), Tommy St Jago, Hicham Acheffay and Jonas Arweiler providing the goals.

As mentioned above, the odds for this match puts the home team as favourites. Perhaps this eases the pressure on the away team, who are capable of producing an upset here on a good day. Looking at earlier matches with similar odds and Jong Utrecht playing away, we found two games. Results were zero away wins, zero draws and two home wins.

The attacking power of Jong Utrecht when travelling is not overwhelming with 11 goals scored from 12 league matches away. Defensive performances away have varied in quality as Jong Utrecht have conceded 22 goals on the road. For more goal statistics, check out the Statistics tab above.
