Netherlands Eerste Divisie – Dordrecht-Go Ahead Eagles
Dordrecht welcomes Go Ahead Eagles in a match from the 31th round of the Dutch Eerste Divisie. We are about to have a look at this clash and give you our take on it.
Dordrecht are 8th in the Eerste Divisie standings with 43 points won so far. They have a record of 13 wins, 4 draws and 13 defeats since the beginning of the campaign. Dordrecht are currently 8 points behind the 5th PSV II and the playoff zone, so they really need to push in order to keep their chances of promotion.
In their last five games Dordrecht won three times and suffered two defeats against Telstar and Den Bosch. Now they will try to get back on the winning road.
Go Ahead Eagles are 18th in the Eerste Divisie with 31 points won so far. The Eagles have a record of 7 wins, 10 draws and 13 defeats since the beginning of the campaign.
Right now Go Ahead Eagles are 14 points above the 20th Utrecht II and the relegation place, so they can feel pretty safe. But it doesn’t change the fact that it has been a dissapointing season for this club.
In their last five matches Go Ahead Eagles have lost just once – against De Graafschap. They also won twice and made two draws, which tells us that the Eagles are in a good form at the moment.
We could say that this match is more important for Dordrecht than it is for Go Ahead Eagles. The home team still have some chances to chase promotion, although it won’t be easy for them. But with some better consistency Dordrecht could find a place among the first five teams in the league. But it doesn’t mean that the Eagles will give up without a fight, of course.
