PREVIEW & PREDICTION – Groningen vs Breda 23/02/2018

Pamphlets with the text ‘now or never’ hang in Groningen. That FC Groningen can use the points well is more than clear and for the supporters this game is therefore quite crucial.

For example, we can state that pressure on the club has increased considerably. Where trainers have been able to work fairly quietly and freely over the years, the tensions are pretty sharp this year. Trainer Ernest Faber has already announced his farewell, but a large group of supporters would prefer to see the coach depart immediately. Director Hans Nijland stays behind his trainer.

Last weekend, FC Groningen took an important point in the away game with VVV Venlo. Not many chances were created, despite the fact that the field game of the Groningers was certainly not bad. After Faber saw his team start badly and looked up early against backlog, the back quickly became a dish. Shinier at the Groningers, Ritsu Doan, made the equalizer after a nice pass from Juninho Bacuna.

Both teams were unable to give full throttle in the second company. Where VVV Venlo undoubtedly had a new point, opponent FC Groningen simply was not able to push through and win the victory. Afterwards, people will be happy with a point, because when the Groningers take a look at the ranking, it is clear that every point is more than welcome.

NAC Breda is currently three points above the ever feared line. Yet one will not be comfortable, because both Roda JC and FC Twente are in the wake of the club from Breda. Both teams have the necessary quality and will definitely make a throw at the safe places. When trainer Stijn Vreven manages to keep NAC Breda in the Eredivisie, the goal is more than achieved.

Last Saturday NAC Breda took on the difficult to play AZ Alkmaar. Where the supporters were hopeful about the course of the game prior to the match, it turned out to be absolutely wrong in the match. The Alkmaarders were lord and master and combined the entire club away from Breda. That NAC Breda managed to make a hit in the injury time, more or less fell from the sky.

Vreven knows better than anyone that he has to gather the necessary points with his team. Where FC Groningen does not know what winning is in this calendar year, NAC Breda does not do much better. Vreven saw his team win once, get a point at Excelsior, but also lose four times. This game is also more than important for the club from Breda. It is undoubtedly exciting.

PREDICTION: Groningen to win @ 1.90
