JONG UTRECHT V DEN HAAG
Jong Utrecht will be looking for an improved result here after the 2-1 Eerste Divisie losing effort in their last game against Excelsior.
In that match, Jong Utrecht managed 35% possession and 12 attempts at goal with 4 on target. The scorer for Jong Utrecht was Eros Maddy (19'). On the other side, Excelsior got 23 attempts at goal with 4 of them on target. Thijs Dallinga (48') and Marouan Azarkan (81') scored for Excelsior.
It’s been all too rare in recent games that Jong Utrecht have kept a clean sheet. It will be a concern for them that Jong Utrecht have been scored against in 6 of their previous 6 matches, giving up 13 goals along the way.
Going into this encounter, Jong Utrecht are without a win at home for the past 2 league matches.
Den Haag will go into this clash following on from a 5-1 Eerste Divisie win with the defeat of FC Dordrecht in their most recent outing.
In that match, ADO Den Haag had 62% possession and 23 attempts at goal with 11 on target. For ADO Den Haag, the goalscorers were Sem Steijn (6', 39', 74'), Ricardo Kishna (12') and Thomas Verheydt (34'). At the other end, FC Dordrecht got 6 attempts at goal with 2 on target. Tim Hölscher (80') was the scorer for FC Dordrecht.
A series of hard-working displays by the ADO Den Haag defensive unit has resulted in their ‘goals against’ tally standing at 3 from their past 6 fixtures overall. In that period of time, their forwards have scored 14. Regardless, we’ll just have to find out whether that trend will be maintained in this upcoming match or not.
Prediction: Over 2.5 Goals
WARTA POZNAN V WISLA KRAKOW
Warta Poznań won’t want a repeat of their last result here after the 2-0 Ekstraklasa loss in their previous game against Lech Poznań.
In that game, Warta Poznań had 33% possession and 10 attempts at goal with 5 on target. For their opponents, Lech Poznań had 17 attempts at goal with 7 of them on target. Antonio Milić (53') and Mikael Ishak (64') scored for Lech Poznań.
An interesting characteristic of more recent Warta Poznań games is the high number of scores with a nil in them.
Taking their previous 6 matches leading up to this one, in 5 of them a bet on BTTS would have been a loser.
Ahead of this meeting, Warta Poznań have not won at home in their last 9 league matches. No joy for the home fans.
Since being defeated in their last game at the hands of Radomiak Radom in Ekstraklasa competition, Wisła Kraków and their travelling fans will hope for a better result here.
In that game, Wisła Kraków managed 64% possession and 20 shots on goal with 4 of them on target. At the other end, Radomiak Radom had 19 shots at goal with 6 on target. Karol Angielski (6') was the scorer for Radomiak Radom.
It has become apparent that Wisła Kraków have been starved of goals over their last six encounters, netting the disappointing return of only 3. In those fixtures, Biała Gwiazda have also seen the overall goal tally against them equal 11. That trend might not follow through here, however.
Prediction: Over 2.5 Goals
ARGES PITESTI V GAZ METAN
Argeș Pitești are hoping to win again following a 0-1 Liga I victory over UTA Arad.

Coming into this clash, Argeș Pitești have not lost a league tie with Gaz Metan Mediaş in their last 2 matches.
