Utrecht II will welcome Helmond Sport to Sportcomplex Zoudenbalch 1e veld for a matchday 24 fixture in Netherlands Eerste Divisie. The last meeting on 17th September 2021 ended in a Utrecht II 3-0 win. Both sides have met ten times in the most recent seasons. Utrecht II has won 3 matches, and Helmond Sport triumphed in 3. Recent outings average 2.00 goals, while both teams score 50% of the time.
Utrecht II’s latest fixture against Volendam ended in an away 2-0 loss. I expected more from Utrecht II. The lack of focus in the final third cost them three points.
Helmond Sport’s previous game in the competition versus PSV II ended in an away 2-0 loss. Helmond Sport had plenty of time to pass around and make quality forward runs. However, the final result was not what they wish for before the game started.
So far, Utrecht II plays better on the road than at home. They win 1.08 points per away game on average compared to 0.75 points at home. Although Utrecht II is among the most solid home teams in the league, they are far from perfect. Their defence is not as good as expected with just 8% home clean sheets.
Helmond Sport has picked up 5 points from the previous six league games. They still have a lot to prove when playing away from home. Helmond Sport wins 0.82 points per away game, a bit less than their home record shows. To improve results, they have to be more compact in defence. Helmond Sport kept a clean sheet in just 27% of their visits.
It is hard to choose a favourite in this one. Both teams look evenly-matched and have their strengths. I am not willing to take a risk and prefer a double chance bet. My prediction is Utrecht II or Helmond Sport to win.
I expect a thrilling contest with plenty of goals. Both sides score and concede on average 2.51 goals per game. Over 2.5 goals were scored in an average of 43% of Utrecht II’s home and Helmond Sport’s away games. My prediction is Over 2.5 Goals.
Both teams struggle in defence and concede on regular occasions. Utrecht II failed to keep a clean sheet in 8% of home games, while Helmond Sport conceded in 27% of away games. On average, both teams score in 35% of Utrecht II’s home and Helmond Sport’s away games. My prediction is Both Teams to Score: Yes.
