Go Ahead Eagles welcome the visitors Twente in the Dutch Eerste Divisie – Round 30. The match will be held on Sunday, March, 24th, at the De Adelaarshorst (Deventer).
The hosting Go Ahead Eagles are presently 3rd in the Eerste Divisie standings. They have actually solidified their place in the playoffs, we are confident to tell this now. 9 rounds before the finish, the team have a 12-point handicap from the tenth-placed Waalwijk. The automatic promotion is hardly doable though even provided the hosts win in the coming encounter, as they sit 12 points behind the leaders and their Sunday guests Twente.

The visiting side are absolute toppers. Sparta Rotterdam run 2nd in the table, but Twente are 11 points ahead of them. If Twente end victors on Sunday, they may start getting ready for the elite league, as it is impossible to drop the current handicap in 8 fixtures. Thus, a question arises if the ‘Tukkers’ will oppose much to the hosts.
The sides’ history suggests a number of interesting facts. 5 recent head-to-heads never registered a win of the welcoming team. 3 of these were hosted by Eagles. 3 of 4 matches held in Deventer saw 1 Twente’s loss yet 5 years back; afterwards, the ‘Tukkers’ drawed once and won twice.
The match proves to be entertaining with a number of counterattacks. The homeside have nothing to lose. If Eagles concede, they still keep their playoff place, no matter if it is 3rd, 2nd, or 8th. If they win, they may bring some intrigue to the competition. Twente have a solid handicap, their further calendar is very doable: of 8 remaining matches, 3 will be held at home against 16th Telstar, 17th Dordrecht, and 18th Jong Az, so, the guests may afford playing for pleasure, taking no risks. In terms of the players’ health as well. Well, why to look for injuries in the end of the basically won championship and ahead of the coming one in the top league?
The fixture between the sides must be effective, especially given the Dutch clubs are normally scoring a lot. The hosts count 51 goals, and the guests do 60 after 29 rounds. Therefore, it is reasonable not to predict winners but expect goals. We will see 3 at least.
Prediction for the match: Over 2.5 goals.
