FC Volendam are hoping to win again after their last result, a 2-3 Eerste Divisie triumph against Jong Utrecht.In that match, FC Volendam had 58% possession and 15 attempts at goal with 8 of them on target. For their opponents, Jong Utrecht got 6 shots on goal with 2 on target.
Matches featuring FC Volendam have tended to be lively ones recently with plenty of scoring the rule rather than the exception. Over their past 6 games alone, a grand total of 20 goals have gone in for both teams combined (at an average of 3.33 goals per game) with 10 of them accredited to Het Andere Oranje. We will see if that trend will be continued on in this game.
A look at their previous results shows us that FC Volendam have not been beaten in the league by Telstar in their last 5 games and are winless against Telstar in their last 2 league games.
Last time out, Telstar drew 1-1 in the Eerste Divisie match with Excelsior.In that match, Telstar had 44% possession and 13 shots on goal with 3 on target. Excelsior had 21 attempts at goal with 8 on target.
Telstar have regularly broken through opposing defences of late, having scored 8 times in their previous 6 matches. Having said that, Witte Leeuwen have had their own issues at the back, also conceding in 6 of those same outings.
Looking at the pre-match facts, Telstar have not won against FC Volendam when they've played them away from home in the last 2 matches in the league, are unbeaten in their previous 2 away league matches and have not won away from home in their last 7 matches in the league.

Team News: FC Volendam
Kevin Visser (Knee Injury), Barry Lauwers (Ill), Joey Roggeveen (Knock), Samir Ben Sallam (groin strain) and Francesco Antonucci (Knock) won’t be able to feature for Volendam boss Wim Jonk. Micky van de Ven is ineligible for this match because of suspension.
Team News: Telstar
Telstar boss Andries Jonker has some current player fitness concerns. Daniel Adshead (Knock), Kick Groot (Knock), Richelor Sprangers (Knock), Hossein Zamani (Knock), Vincent Regeling (Knock), Frank Korpershoek (Ankle Injury) and Yaël Liesdek (Knock) can’t be considered.
My thinking is that Telstar have the capability to find the net against this FC Volendam lineup, but that isn’t expected to be enough to avoid defeat. I am tipping a very close game with a 2-1 win for FC Volendam after the 90.
