Roda vs Almere City Prediction & Betting tips
On Sunday evening, Roda will try to keep her Eredivisie for the time being in the return against Almere. The first match ended in 0-0, so it can still go in all directions.
Roda JC has been a regular customer in the play-offs in recent years. The reputation of the Limburgers is very strong. In 2009, 2013 and 2017, the team managed to maintain in the Eredivisie, while in 2015 promotion was achieved through the nacompetition.
Also now Roda is favorite to qualify for the final, in which the Graafschap on Telstar will be the opponent. The 0-0 draw in Almere is a dangerous result, but offers enough opportunities to finish it in-house.
Last Thursday, Roda was lord and master in the second half. Up to three times the bar stood in the way and in addition several Roda players were not sharp enough in the rounding.
In contrast to last year, Roda now hardly has any injuries. That is why the same names are expected on the competition form as those in Almere.
Almere City delivered an excellent performance to keep Roda JC on a draw. In the second half, the tank was empty at Jack de Gier’s team and several players seemed to be on their last legs.
The Flevolanders have the matches against MVV Maastricht from the previous round still in their legs. Some players were very tired in the second company and Leeroy Owusu even had to be replaced.
The question is how well Almere manages to recover from last Thursday’s effort. The result offers at least enough perspectives. As any footballer can effortlessly add: “If we make one, they have to make two already.”
Almere also has few options other than going for a goal. The team has no solid defense and the game against Roda was only the third time that goalkeeper Chiel Kramer managed to keep the zero this season. A great achievement, especially since defenders Josef Kvida and Kees van Buuren are injured.
With players like Sherjill MacDonald, Tom Overtoom and especially Silvester van de Water, Almere has enough players to score. Almere is certainly not yet written off.
