FC Den Bosch form and stats

There's been little loot from FC Den Bosch's travels as they have only collected 1 point from 9 away games in the Eerste Divisie. FC Den Bosch, who have the fewest points (1) away in Eerste Divisie, only have 0 wins to counter their 8 defeats and 1 draw. FC Den Bosch are desperate to end a 15-game winless run, as they haven't won a game since the MVV Maastricht fixture. Bitter travels for Bosch as they have lost four games in a row away from home. The last time they avoided an away-from-home loss was the Roda JC Kerkrade match.

Bosch failed to get anything from their last game, a Eerste Divisie home match vs Jong AZ (placed 18th) that ended with defeat 1-2. A 1-3 defeat away at Jong Utrecht before that.

We have checked recent matches where Bosch have had similar odds to win. Win-draw-lose statistics from those ten games were three victories, three draws and four defeats.

The attacking power of FC Den Bosch when travelling is not overwhelming with 6 goals scored from 9 league matches away. The Bosch defense is as useful as an ashtray on a motorcycle, having conceded 29 goals in their away games.
