Irrespective of how this Eredivisie (ERE) match unfolds, the Europa League playoffs will still be out of reach for eighth placed Den Haag. Even a win over Groningen and a loss for seventh placed Vitesse (against Feyenoord) will leave Den Haag in the same position, as Vitesse have a superior goal difference.
Den Haag will want revenge after losing 3-0 at home in the reverse fixture. Some might say Den Haag’s players were not aggressive enough as no yellow cards were shown on that occasion.
It will be a tough ask for Den Haag to win, with the club winning just one away game in the last six, returning a record of: W1, D1, L4.
In terms of recent history, there is no separating the sides, with eight wins apiece and just one draw in their last 17 meetings.
Though they won the reverse fixture, Groningen will have to be cautious when Den Haag line up for a set piece. They are second best only to Ajax in ERE for goals scored from set pieces. In fact, 11 of their 29 goals to date have been scored this way.
Players to Watch: The sixth highest scorer in ERE with nine goals, Den Haag’s Norwegian striker Bjorn Johnsen has been impressive, scoring seven goals in his last ten games.
眼光仅表示我本人。Groningen’s own top scorer Mimoun Mahi is injured. So they will have to rely on forward Tom van Weert who has scored six goals this season and one goal in his last three games.
Stat attack: Both teams have scored in each of the last five H2H matches, producing 14 goals - an average of 2.8 goals per game.
In the last four editions of this fixture at Groningen, a total of 21 offsides have been recorded, an average of 5.25 offsides per game. In addition, a total of 35 corners have been taken, equating to an average of 8.75 corners per game.
