The visiting FC Volendam side should be favourites in this visit to FC Dordrecht, as the away team holds a 22 point advantage from their 19 league games this season.

Insights:
  • FC Dordrecht has the most conceded goals (51) in Eerste Divisie
  • FC Volendam have scored more than double the goals of FC Dordrecht.

The hosts Dordrecht saw competitive action as recent as four days ago, playing in the Eerste Divisie. Thankfully the previous game, versus Jong PSV, was also a home game here at Riwal Hoogwerkers Stadion. The away team is better rested.

One slightly interesting match fact is that this game is played on grass and that the visiting FC Volendam have a different surface at their stadium (artifical turf). The impact of this is hard to measure exactly, but the visitors stats on grass is 5-1-9 (win-draw-loss) from 15 matches.

FC Dordrecht form and stats

The home fans haven’t been spoiled with victories in the Eerste Divisie this season. FC Dordrecht, who have the most conceded goals (51) in Eerste Divisie, have only managed 2 wins, 2 draws and 5 losses from their games here at Riwal Hoogwerkers Stadion. Regardless of arena the trend is looking very unhealthy for Dordrecht with their four defeats in a row. Not since the NAC Breda game, 39 days ago, have they avoided a loss. Two defeats in a row at home hurts for Dordrecht, their manager H. van den Ham and the supporters. There are certain expectations for improvement.

The FC Dordrecht fans got no joy from their last match, a Eerste Divisie game also here at Riwal Hoogwerkers Stadion: A 2-3 defeat against Jong PSV (placed 16th). A defeat was the result before that one, 2-5 away at Helmond Sport.

Anthony Swolfs had a busy but productive day in the Jong PSV match. Despite making six saves the loss could not be prevented.

The Dordrecht fans would probably like to see some more goals scored at their own stadium in the league, the tally being 11 in 9 matches. It's worth mentioning that 6 of these goals has been scored in their last three home matches. FC Dordrecht have conceded 16 from these games.

Two travels in a row for Volendam, whose manager W. Jonk could celebrate last time after the Eerste Divisie win against SC Cambuur. The game before that, was lost at home, a 0-1 defeat against MVV Maastricht.

Volendam goalie Joey Roggeveen was high and low in the SC Cambuur game, contributing seven saves towards the victory.

After this away game Volendam return home for a KNVB Beker game against PSV. That game is only four sleeps after this.

Volendam have scored more than twice on average per away game (in the league), an impressive attacking display. They have 20 goals from 9 away matches. Volendam have conceded 13 goals in these away matches.
