Utrecht vs Waalwijk Prediction & Betting tips
On Sunday afternoon FC Utrecht will face RKC Waalwijk in its own Galgenwaard. It is clear who has the favorite role in this competition.
FC Utrecht saw its opening game canceled by the KNVB two weeks ago. To give opponents AZ Alkmaar a rest in preparation for their European match, the game between Utrecht and the North Hollanders was postponed, to the annoyance of everyone at Utrecht. The season for John van den Brom and his men started last week, with an away match against VVV Venlo. It was not entirely disastrous, as Utrecht showed, but it also became clear that there is still a lot of room for improvement. The match in Limburg ended in 1-1.
‘Last week we started poorly, but we ended well,’ Van den Brom told FCU’s own media this week. “The way we ended on Friday, that’s how we have to approach RKC on Sunday,” the coach resolved. Not much will change in Utrecht’s position. Van den Brom also does not have to contend with a full sick bay.
RKC Waalwijk started the season in a well-known way for the fans: with losing matches. The team that could avoid relegation due to an administrative luck is just as poor as before the summer. Fred Grim’s team did undergo some changes in the player base, but based on the first two duels you cannot say that they have improved.
After a 0-1 home loss against Vitesse in round one, RKC had the thankless task of playing an away match against Ajax last week. As expected, the people of Brabant in the Johan Cruijff Arena had little to say. The only relatively positive thing about the game was that the final score with 3-0 was not too bad. So now the game with Utrecht awaits. RKC has good memories of the Domstedelingen, because last year, very remarkably, they won twice from that club. Luuk Wouters got the red card last week, but has not been suspended by the KNVB disciplinary committee.
