When playing on Eerste, it’s hard to miss on the fixtures that end up with lots of goals just because nearly all of them have over 2,5 goals results. This evening, starting 19:00 GMT, we can easily bet on Jong AZ – FC Oss.
Jong AZ – Things aren’t looking pretty for Martin Haar’s boys. Jong AZ stands 19th in the league, with 17 points from 22 fixtures, 28-47 aggregate. Has the third worse defense, just after Jong Utrecht, who is last, and Dordrecht, a team with four straight wins. And speaking of victories, Jong AZ got its last in November, 9 games ago. Since then, there were 9 losses and one draw, 21 goals conceded. At home, the team conceded at least one goal in every match this season. The “good” news is that Martin Haar’s footballers also scored in 8 of the 10 games played in front of their supporters.
FC Oss – Things are settling down for the future “TOP Oss” team. Is now 9th in Eerste Divisie, with 33 points from 22 matches, 32-35 aggregate. Lost the last game, 0-2 at Dordrecht, but it was just the second defeat in 7 matches. Unlike last season, FC Oss doesn’t play on the attack that much, having the 5th bottom offensive. However, on the road, it conceded 20 goals in 11 games, while scoring 18. Has received at least a goal in 10 of the 11 away matches.
How it’s Jong AZ’s first season in Eerste, these teams met just once before, and FC Oss won 2-1. It was a match that saw 14 shots on target and AZ had some men from the first team, with their goal being scored by Friday. AZ Alkmaar also played at home this weekend, so it’s reasonable to think that there will be 3-4 players sent to check some minutes Monday evening. Two teams that easily open up, so goals shouldn’t be a problem here. We can make some profit from this fixture.
Prediction: over 2,5 goals, odds 1.41
