Saturday 17th November (17:30 GMT)

TOP OSS v Almere City

A big game here in Oss between two in form sides. They sit fifth and sixth respectively. A win for the home side could push them closer to the big boys at the top, where as three points is crucial for Almere if they want to return to where they have been for the majority of the campaign. I expect this to be an exciting one for the neutral, expect goals. 3-2 | Over 3.5 Goals

Jong PSV v Jong AZ

I can only really see this going one way, and that is in favour of Jong PSV. They have been fairly consistent throughout the season, where as Jong AZ haven’t won since September, which is why this should be fairly easy for PSV. Another game which we could see a lot of goals in, PSV are the divisions second top scorers, where as AZ have conceded the second most. 3-0 | Jong PSV to Win

Saturday 17th November (18:45 GMT)

Dordrecht v FC Eindhoven

Debatably two of the Eerste Divisie’s poorest sides come face to face this week in Dordrecht. Between them, only three wins have been accumulated all season, an awful showing. The chances are that this will be a scrappy affair with either side nicking it by the odd goal. 1-0

Helmond Sport v Waalwijk

Helmond are STILL without a win and we are halfway through November, this could be there best chance yet to get three points on the board. Waalwijk, after a bit of form in both league and cup, have fallen again with back to back defeats against Jong PSV and Twente. Both sides only average a goal per game, so don’t expect this one to be a classic. 1-1

Saturday 17th November (19:45 GMT)

Cambuur v Volendam

Volendam have won their last three and haven’t been beaten since September. The incredible form which has seen them rise from mid-table to just three points off their opponents. Cambuur really need a win here to push them back up into the playoff spots, where they will expect to be, come the end of April. I think the away sides run of form will come to an end here in Leeuwarden. 2-1

Sunday 18th November (11:15 GMT)

MVV Maastricht v Roda JC

The first Limburg derby since the two faced in the play offs the season before last. This tie is always a feisty one both on and off the pitch. MVV haven’t won in four, while Roda have finally found some form and have won their previous two. I expect the away side to cope with the pressure and come away with three points off their rivals. 1-2

Sunday 18th November (13:10 GMT)

FC Twente v Go Ahead Eagles

Potentially the biggest game of the season so far for both sides. The aim for either side is promotion for either side, and another defeat for Twente here will probably leave them seven points off top spot. However, a win for them here will close the back between the two sides to nothing, and keep the pressure on Sparta in first. This game is completely sold out with over 30,000 tickets sold, including 1,000 from Deventer, an Eerste Divisie record! 3-1 | Both Teams To Score

Telstar v Den Bosch

Seven wins in a row for Den Bosch, a streak running since September. The incredible form which sees them move into third place. It will be a huge task to make that eight as they face Telstar who have themselves won their last two. It will great as a neutral to see Den Bosch pick up another win and potentially move into first place. 0-1

Sunday 18th November (15:45 GMT)

NEC Nijmegen v Sparta Rotterdam

Another huge tie between underperforming NEC and table toppers Sparta. NEC were torn apart last week in Amsterdam by Jong Ajax, while Sparta continued their impressive form by hitting four past Jong Utrecht. The home side will want to avoid a defeat which would see them move twelve points from their opponents. A huge decline from a side who were competing for the title last time around. 1-1

Tuesday 20th November (19:00 GMT)

Jong Utrecht v Jong Ajax

Jong Utrecht have conceded 15 goals in their last four games, losing all of them. Very poor form no matter what you expectations are. Jong Ajax come here full of confidence off the back of a 4-0 demolition of NEC. I wouldn’t be surprised if a lot of goals were scored here, mainly from the visitors. 1-4 | Jong Ajax Over 2.5 Goals
