GRAAFSCHAP VS FC EMMEN (Preview, Prediction & Betting Tips) / 23.04.2019

Graafschap must lift themselves up following a 4-1 defeat to Venlo, which marked the tenth time they have conceded at least three goals in a league game this season. With their situation becoming ever more desperate, the ‘Super Farmers’ need at least a point from this game to retain any hope of avoiding the relegation play-offs.
One of the few things that will give the hosts any solace is that they have earnt 69.23% of their current Eredivisie points total here at De Vijverberg, although that return (18) is better than only three other sides.
Emmen essentially secured their top-flight status with victory over Utrecht last time out (2-0). They can mathematically secure it with victory here, but a minimum of two goals may be necessary, as they are yet to keep a clean sheet in 15 away league games this season.
Encouragingly for the visitors, head coach Dick Lukkien is unbeaten in four of his five H2Hs with Graafschap (W2, D2, L1), and each of his four touchline bouts with opposing manager Henk de Jong (W2, D2).
Players to watch: With two goals and as many assists, Youssef El Jebli has been involved in four of the last five home goals scored by Graafschap players.
Emmen’s Alexander Bannink has scored the opening goal in each of the last three H2H matches, with his side going on to take five points from a possible nine (W1, D2).
Stat attack: Graafschap are conceding (on average) 1.26 goals per league match in the second half alone.
The last seven H2Hs in Doetinchem have produced over 2.5 total goals (in all competitions).
No less than 40% of Emmen’s away league goals have come between the 76th minute and the final whistle.
