The hunting on away grounds haven’t been very fruitful for Go Ahead Eagles so far with only 14 points returning home. The records show 3-5-8 (win-draw-lose).

Go Ahead Eagles have been frustrated by their lack of goals lately, as they haven't scored in the league since they found the net 235 minutes ago. Lidberg was the goal scorer.

Go Ahead Eagles might have something to prove in this game as they lost at home in their previous match. Feyenoord proved too strong as Go Ahead Eagles slumped to a 0-1 defeat in front of their own fans at De Adelaarshorst.

A 0-1 defeat away at NEC before that.

Eagles are the outsiders in this one, but not by much. Their performance in similar games (being the away team and moderate outsiders) is two wins, one draw and five defeats. From a total of eight matches.
