Willem II hosts Groningen in round 16 of the Dutch Eredivisie. The match will be played on Thursday, January 14th at Konig Willem II Stadion (Tilburg)
Willem II looks much worse than last season. The Tricolors have worked under the management of Adrie Koster in recent years. This specialist first led his players to the final of the national cup in 2019, and in the last draw, the team climbed to 5th place. It even allowed Willem to play in the Europa League in the fall, but, having beaten Progress Niederkorn from Luxembourg, the Dutch lost to the Scottish Rangers. Currently, Willem II does not come close to resembling its model of the last season – it gained only two victories in the current championship. In 2020, after four defeats, the Tricolors managed to end December in a draw with the leading Ajax. But on January 10, winning until the 79th minute, Willem II eventually lost to its direct rival, Venlo.

Groningen claims a place in the European Cup. The Green-White Army reminded of themselves in the offseason when they persuaded their legendary trainee, Arjen Robben, to return to the field. But the winger was injured pretty quickly and played only a couple of matches after resuming his career. However, Groningen still managed to improve its results compared to last season: in the spring, at the time of the early finish, it was only 9th. The bosses successfully signed Jorgen Larsen. The 20-year-old Norwegian striker, who moved to Holland only in the offseason, has already scored six goals and made five assists. Ahmed El Messaoudi also improved his game - the 25-year-old Moroccan midfielder already has 5 + 2 this season. But in general, Groningen is in decline at the junction of calendar years: December ended with a home defeat to Heracles, and after the holidays, the Greens tied with Utrecht despite a 2-goal advantage.
Both teams don't look so good now. It is unlikely that they will be able to show a bright and interesting fight, so we recommend you bet on Under 2.5 goals scored.
Prediction for the match: Under 2.5 goals scored
