PEC Zwolle vs FC Groningen Predictions & Match Preview
PEC Zwolle vs FC Groningen
Netherlands – Eredivisie
Date: Wednesday, 24th April 2019
Kick-off at 18.45 UK/ 19.45 CET
Venue: MAC³PARK Stadion (Zwolle).
Groningen fought bravely the last match-day against the all-conquering Ajax and was a tad unlucky to not have upset the treble-hunters. Despite being on the road, they managed to keep the free-flowing attack at bay till the 77th minute. The team has quite a challenge in front of them if they are to take part in the Europa. They have to make up a difference of five points, with only nine left to play for.
Zwolle is practically safe from the relegation threat and stands no chance to see a minute in Europe. As such, their season is practically over, and all that remains is they provide a nice swansong for the fans to hold on till the commencement of the next edition of the Eredivisie.

PEC Zwolle vs FC Groningen Prediction
Groningen has been extremely unsatisfactory on the road this season. Their last 15 road trips returned just 2 wins. On top of that, Zwolle was unbeaten in six of their last seven home ties. Moreover, the last four h2h encounters returned three home wins. Finally, the last two home ties of Zwolle saw the team record two wins with the help of eight goals.
Expect the hosts not to lose the tie. But Groningen surely is on a roll. After their excellent showing against Ajax, the team is high on confidence, and with a shot to make the Europa list, they will go after it. The fact that they have nothing to lose will amplify their performance, and since Zwolle has conceded two or more goals in three of their last four games, expect both teams to find the back of the net this Wednesday.
