Groningen vs Roda Prediction & Betting tips
FC Groningen and Roda JC play an important game on Sunday-afternoon in the fight against relegation. In a Limburg victory, the relegation streak for Groningen comes close.
FC Groningen, with four matches to go, scored on a run number of 30. That’s four more than the opponent of Sunday, Roda JC. The trend at Groningen is unmistakably negative. For example, only one of the last twelve games was won. If things continue like this, Groningen can really get into trouble. That would be a fitting conclusion to a season in which there is a lot of error both inside and outside the field.
The remaining program is not very easy for the Groningers either, with the away games against FC Utrecht and PSV still ahead. In the home games against Roda and Excelsior it should probably happen for FCG. Juninho Bacuna is suspended for Sunday’s game. Django Warmerdam fills its place in the midfield. Mimoun Mahi has a small question mark behind his name, although this is of course a situation in which (responsible) risks have to be taken.
Suddenly it runs at Roda JC. In the previous round, PEC Zwolle was beaten 3-2, which was the third victory in a row for the team of coach Robert Molenaar. For comparison: in the 26 games before, the Limburgers won four times. Roda seems to have found the top shape right on time, in this crucial part of the season.
Direct relegation no longer appears to be a big threat, with a six point advantage over FC Twente. And maybe the competition can also be avoided. On Wednesday, Roda will play against PSV, undoubtedly in the hope that the Brabanters will be champions on Sunday and have a party behind them. Then VVV (out) and ADO Den Haag (home) are still opponents of Roda. For the Sunday game Molenaar can send an excellent team into the field. Adil Auassar, who was injured against PEC, is just ready to play.
