Reason For Groningen vs Utrecht Betting Tips

  • Since the 4-0 defeat at Ajax, Utrecht have lost 3-0 against AZ and 1-0 against bottom of the table RKC.
  • Groningen have only lost one of their last six matches in all competitions.
  • The hosts have avoided defeat in their last four meetings with Utrecht.
  • Both teams have ambitions of playing in Europe next season but sit just outside the top 7.

Form favours the home side on Sunday

Groningen are unbeaten in their last four matches against Utrecht and under 2.5 goals have been produced in the pairs’ last three encounters. The hosts have only lost one of their last six matches in all competitions while Utrecht have lost their last three matches in the Eredivisie, so you can start to see why we have backed Groningen with a double chance bet this weekend.

Under 2.5 goals have been scored in four of Groningen’s last six matches and Utrecht have failed to score in their last three games, which is why we have only gone with a 1-0 final scoreline in the host’s favour this Sunday. Groningen have only lost two of their seven home games so far this season while Utrecht have only won two of their seven games on the road, which adds weight to our prediction for the hosts to avoid defeat this weekend.

Groningen have a strong clean sheets record in their own backyard

Groningen score an average of 1.71 goals per home game and concede an average of 0.86 goals while Utrecht score an average of 1.43 goals per away game and concede an average of 2.00 goals, but with the visitors failing to score in their last three matches and the hosts producing a lot of low-scoring games of late we believe a 1-0 scoreline is most realistic for Sunday’s clash.

Groningen have kept clean sheets in 57% of their home games but Utrecht are yet to keep a clean sheet on the road and 57% of the host’s home games have ended in a win-to-nil and they have scored in all of their home matches so far, which provides even more reason to back a 1-0 win for Groningen this weekend. Groningen average 1.86 points per home game while Utrecht average 1.14 points per away game and with that in mind we believe the hosts will avoid defeat on Sunday.

We’re confident that a double chance bet on Groningen will payout on Sunday and we have predicted a final scoreline of 1-0. The hosts head into this game as the form favourites despite sitting below Utrecht in the table. Groningen have a good record at home and look to be playing Utrecht at an opportune time as the visitors have failed to score in their last three outings all of which have ended in defeat
