Friday, January 27, from 19:00 to play Almere – Sittard, a duel of round number 22 of the Eerste Divisie, Holland Second Division football.
Almere is a subscriber to the play-off places this season, at least hinted that the results so far, which took her in 8th place with 33 points. The attack is the main weapon of the team with 41 goals, six more than the number or cashed goals. In the previous stage, it only managed a 2-2 draw with Volendam, another team fighting for nine spots that lead in the play-offs, but the advantage is that those in Almere have a game less to play against other rival. Now going to play at home, where he gathered 22 points, suffering two defeats in ten confrontations taken, with Vnelo 0-2 and 1-4 with Jong Ajax, teams that currently occupy the top two places.
Sittard finished last year with three consecutive defeats, but in 2017 had not yet experienced failure, managed a win and a draw 1-0 with Achilles, obtained in the last round, 1-1 Telstar. Via that point, it climbed a step, coming in at 16th place with 19 points, but note that it has been penalized three points after a federal decision. Friday will be again visiting team, posture at all preferred by players of Sittard, as they managed only one win in ten matches. Moreover, the team has won just four of 30 possible points.
In the tour match, Sittard took advantage of the home court advantage, imposing 2-1, but the situation is changing now, when Almere returns to “Yanmer Stadium”. Considering this aspect, I am inclined to believe that the home team has a good chance to establish itself at the end of 90 minutes, taking advantage of the poor form of opponents in away games.
