Willem II are welcoming ADO Den Haag for another important game after their 0-6 result against 7th-placed FC Utrecht.

Insights:
  • Willem II has the most dropped points from leading position (18) in Eredivisie
  • ADO Den Haag is in the worst form (0-3-3)

It’s a hectic schedule for the away team, as they were in action only four days ago in the Eredivisie. That game was also an away game, at Fortuna Sittard. It will be interesting to see if they are fully ready and rested for this match, and/or if some changes in the lineup is necessary.

5-8-22 (wins/draws/losses). These are the numbers for ADO Den Haag when playing away games on grass, which is not the surface they have on their own home stadium (which has artifical turf). Their goal statistics from those 35 matches are 39-80 (scored/conceded).

Willem II form and stats

Willem II's struggle is real here at Koning Willem II Stadion with only 10 points collected from 11 Eredivisie games. The win-draw-lost numbers are ugly: 3-1-7.

Willem haven't scored a league goal since they found the net 223 minutes ago. K. O. Wriedt scored that one.

The Willem crowd went home unhappy last time out, seeing their beloved players lose 0-6 to FC Utrecht here at Koning Willem II Stadion in a Eredivisie match. Heartbreak before that as Willem II lost 0-5 at Feyenoord's place.

Willem were outplayed and humiliated in their previous game, as mentioned in the paragraph above. They will need to reinstall their confidence before this one.

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

There will be little rest for Willem after this match as they are travelling to Sparta Rotterdam for a Eredivisie game in only four days.

The Willem fans would probably like to see some more goals scored at their own stadium in the league, the tally being 15 in 11 matches. Willem have conceded 27 goals in these home games, a significant number.

ADO Den Haag form and stats

There's been little loot from ADO Den Haag's travels as they have only collected 8 points from 11 away games in the Eredivisie. ADO Den Haag, who have the the worst goal difference (-18) away in Eredivisie, only have 2 wins to counter their 7 defeats and 2 draws. The pressure to perform on the road is increasing on R. Brood, the ADO Den Haag manager, as the last three away games were defeats.

It might be tough going out on the road again for ADO Den Haag, facing their second straight away game. Especially as the previous game, ended with a defeat 0-2 versus Fortuna Sittard (placed 9th). Ahead of that game was the 2-2 draw at home against PSV.

Looking at the earlier recent performances of Haag when being an outsider away as they are today, we find one match with the visitors losing zero times, drawing zero and winning one game.

A quick return to home after this game, as Haag are hosting RKC Waalwijk in the Eredivisie only three days away.

The visitors have scored 8 goals from 11 away games in the league, an average of less than one per game. The Haag manager R. Brood has some worries about the defense as 26 goals have been conceded in these travels.

Head 2 Head

Numbers for the last ten meetings between these two teams are: one win for Willem, two draws and seven wins for ADO Den Haag. Over 2,5 goals: six times; under 2,5 goals: four games.
