Den Bosch vs Maastricht Prediction & Betting tips
FC Den Bosch is well above MVV in the ranking, but the difference in form between both teams is great. Where FC Den Bosch did not win four times in a row, the guests won four times in a row.
FC Den Bosch:
FC Den Bosch is still in the top of the ranking, but this is more due to the poor results of the competition than the good results of the team of trainer Willie Boessen. League-leader FC Twente has won nine times in a row and has increased its lead over Den Bosch to eight points. Because Sparta and Go Ahead Eagles can hardly win in the last weeks, FC Den Bosch is still second.
Den Bosch has been waiting four times in a row for a victory, while the team did not hit any high flyers in the last few weeks. Last week, the team went no further than a goalless draw against number eighteen Young AZ, while in the previous weeks was played equal against FC Volendam and was lost of provincial members RKC Waalwijk and FC Eindhoven. Especially the lack of goals is harrowing: in the past month only two goals were made.
Den Bosch hopes for the cover against MVV. At least confidence can be drawn from the result of the first leg: in October FC Den Bosch in the Geusselt was no less than 0-3 too strong for the Maastricht team.
MVV has a very changeable season and stayed for a long time in the gray middle of the Kitchen Champion Division. In recent weeks, the Star Bearers have been on an impressive advance. The last four league matches yielded just as many victories: successively Helmond Sport, Telstar, FC Oss and Jong FC Utrecht were defeated with at least two goals difference. It had not happened since March 2015 that the Maastricht people managed to win four times in a row. Because of the victory series, the Maastrichtians have risen to the seventh place in the ranking and the team is fully participating in the Third Period and the second round of the playoffs.
The big difference with the current MVV and the pre-winter team is productivity. In the first twenty games, MVV scored only twenty times, while 14 hits were scored in the last five matches. Joeri Schroijen is top scorer of the team with ten hits, while Anthony van den Hurk also starts scoring the last few weeks and reaches eight. The most important offensive impulse, however, has been the return of Jordy Croux. The Belgian wing attacker is rented from Willem II and has been in the past few weeks with a great goal and two assits. Joshua Holtby also turns out to be a welcome reinforcement in the midfield, while Elsen, due to the emptying of the infirmary, is largely in his options.
