As we enter the sixth week of games in the Eredivisie, Simon Prue returns with his selections to make a profit this weekend – good luck!
Saturday 19th September
PEC ZWOLLE vs. ADO DEN HAAG (18:45 BST)
Okay, so last week did not go to plan and whilst there were over 2.5 goals, Ajax’s defence was breached for the first time this season after 20 minutes, followed by another goal just after the break. Annoyingly, El Ghazi did not score either of Ajax’s goals but I’m feeling more confident about this week’s selection.
PEC Zwolle have started the season impressively by winning three of their five games without losing in this period. Ron Jans’ Zwolle have scored in every game this campaign, and on Saturday they host a Den Haag side that has seen over 3.5 goals land in both of their away games so far. In support of this, Zwolle–ADO has produced over 3.5 goals in the last three meetings at the IJsseldelta Stadion. It’s 13/8 (Bet365) for this to happen again.
Whilst the Over 3.5 match goals is tempting, I’m particularly attracted to the team goals market this week. Zwolle have notched at least two goals in each of their three home games this season and there is no reason why this trend will not continue against a Den Haag side who lost 4-0 to Ajax in their last away fixture. Therefore, I’d say PEC Zwolle to score over 1.5 goals (4/5 at Bet365) is one of the bets of the weekend in the Eredivisie.
