Reason For Groningen vs Emmen Betting Tips

  • Just 4pts separate these two clubs ahead of Sunday’s clash.
  • Both teams have lacked wins over the last month or so and will be hoping for a positive result ahead of the winter break.
  • Groningen are aiming to end their four-game winless run in the league this Sunday.
  • Emmen hope to make it back to back Eredivisie wins after beating Sparta last time out.

We’re expecting a tight and tense affair on Sunday

Emmen have only lost one of their last four competitive and non-competitive matches against Groningen and under 2.5 goals have been scored in three of the pairs’ last five encounters. Under 2.5 goals have been produced in five of Groningen’s last six matches as well as in each of Emmen’s last five matches, so you can see why we are expecting a low-scoring ninety minutes this Sunday.

Groningen have failed to score in two of their last three games and Emmen have failed to score in three of their last six games, and we have backed the pair to play out a goalless draw this weekend. Groningen are the favourites to win the game but have a midweek KNVB Beker tie against Utrecht to negotiate before they can fully concentrate of Sunday’s clash with Emmen and this is why we believe the visitors can take home a point from their trip to Groningen.

Groningen have drawn two of their last four matches and Emmen have drawn two of their last four matches, so both teams have played out their fair share of stalemates in recent weeks. The hosts have only lost three times at home this season and Emmen are yet to win on the road, which is why we can’t see the visitors claiming all three points on Sunday.

Emmen will be looking to take advantage of their hosts busy schedule

Groningen concede an average of 0.88 goals per home game and Emmen score an average of 0.50 goals per away game, adding weight to our prediction for a 0-0 draw this weekend. Groningen average 1.63 points per home game which is below the league average of 1.70 points and Emmen average 0.13 points per away game which is below the league average of 1.11 points, and we’ve backed the pair to each pick up a point this weekend.

Only 38% of Groningen’s home games have produced over 2.5 goals and both teams have scored in just 38% of the host’s home games, providing another reason to back under 2.5 goals to be scored this weekend. Groningen have only conceded 7 goals at home and Emmen have only scored 4 goals on the road, which is why we can see the hosts shutting out their opponents on Sunday and the game ending goalless. Groningen have kept clean sheets in 50% of their home games and Emmen have failed to score in 50% of their away games, another reason we have backed under 2.5 goals to be scored and why we have settled for a final scoreline of 0-0.

We’re confident that under 2.5 goals will be scored in Sunday’s match and we have predicted a final scoreline of 0-0. Groningen ar ethe favourites to win the game, and for good reason, but they have a tricky midweek cup tie to deal with and their form has dipped in recent weeks which is why we believe Emmen can pinch a point from Sunday’s clash.
