Unbeaten in two games following consecutive losses, Utrecht will attempt to improve their home record which has seen them concede the opener in two league games so far, though they managed to turn one around. Utrecht have accrued more points after seven games than in eight of the last nine campaigns. All of Utrecht’s league matches have seen both teams score, though only two ended level (3.57 total goals per match). Moreover, ‘Utreg’ are yet to see a goalless first half in any game (1.71 first-half goals per match) – four were 1-0 either way at the break.
This will be the sixth managerial H2H and they are yet to draw in the previous five. Visiting manager Adrie Koster has won each of his last three meetings with John van den Brom, with Koster’s side scoring at least twice in each victory. Willem II have picked up more points at this stage than in any of their last eight Eredivisie campaigns, partly due to the fact that most of their goals have come on the road (70%) while 71.43% (five) of those away strikes have come before half-time.
