Groningen vs Waalwijk for the Dutch Eredivisie championship match on Friday at Euroborg Stadium.
This Friday, October 4th, Groningen and Waalwijk meet on the ninth round of Eredivisie, the local Dutch soccer championship.
They have the worst attack so far this season at Eredivisie. Only scored seven goals in eight games played.
Their attackers haven’t scored yet. Six goals came from Groninger midfielders Hrustic, Lundqvist and Doan. Another goal was the work of defender Warmerdam.
They are currently at position 13th of the Eredivisie table with seven points.
They are the favourites, although their performances were not much better than those of their rivals.
In the two games they won, it helped them to be reliable in defence as they conceded no goals.
Groningen has not lost to Waalwijk in Eredivisie since 2012.
It’s currently the last team on the Eredivisie table with just one point, a point reached with a draw. There are only two teams in the competition that so far have not won a game, and one of them is Waalwijk.
They are the weakest team in the tournament with 26 goals against, averaging more than 3 goals against per game.
Waalwjik is also the team with the least goals in favour. The only less effective attack than Waalwijk’s is just that of his rival, as Groningen has scored just seven goals. One less than the visiting team.
There is no doubt that the home team is the favourite for this match, although it should not be a very unbalanced match.
Groningen has the worst attack of the tournament, but Friday’s game may be an excellent opportunity for their strikers, as Waalwijk is the team with the most goals against in Eredivisie.
Only one of Waalwijk’s eight games had less than three goals conceded, so the story must be repeated.
