Almere City v Dordrecht

Almere will be hoping to put last weeks defeat quickly behind them against an out of form Dordrecht. The away side have lost their last three matches and sit bottom of the Keuken Kampioen Divisie. Almere have fell into an inconsistent spell, after tearing the division apart in the first couple of months. They should find this one fairly comfortable, and I wouldn’t be surprised if they scored a few. 3-0 | Almere to Win

Den Bosch v Cambuur

Eight wins on the spin for Den Bosch and it’s becoming some sort of fairytale. Unbelievable form from a side who usually occupy the bottom half of this league. There has been a photo trending this week of a Den Bosch fan with a tattoo saying ‘FC Den Bosch – Kampioen 18/19’! They are at home which will significantly increase their chances of making it nine on the spin, however, Cambuur are no easy opponents. 2-1

FC Eindhoven v Helmond Sport

A matchup of two of the divisions poorer sides. FC Eindhoven who won 3-0 last weekend, face Helmond who are still winless after playing over a third of the season. Horrific form and I can only see one side coming away with three points and that is in favour of the home side. A win for Eindhoven will help steer them clear of the bottom four places. 1-0 | Under 2.5 Goals

Volendam v Jong Utrecht

Volendam unbeaten run continues having picked up a point against Cambuur last week. Draws are what is stopping the side from the north progressing further up the table. They have in fact, lost the same amount of games as Twente, which shows the potential they have. They play Jong Utrecht who picked up an impressive win against Jong Ajax last time out, scoring four goals. 3-2

Go Ahead Eagles v TOP Oss

The Eagles are flying again and return to the top of the table after a thrilling victory in Enschede against FC Twente. I was lucky enough to be there and they really showed why they have a great chance of going up this year. It would be great to see this club back in the Eredivisie, it’s the least their fans deserve. They face Oss who themselves have won three on the bounce, so this could be a great game. This game will be shown live on Fox Sports 3-1 | Over 3.5 Goals

Jong Ajax v MVV Maastricht

Looking at Jong Ajax’s results, and I see one thing, that’s inconsistency. They have only drawn one game, and they haven’t won or lost more than two in a row. The general pattern is simply WLWLWL. Its surprising to see last years champions performing so poorly this time around, yes a fair few have moved on but they should always be towards the top end of the table. This is a hard one to call since MVV are not doing great themselves either. 1-1

RKC Waalwijk v NEC Nijmegen

Waalwijk returned to winning ways last week, which gives them a better cushion between them and the division’s bottom sides. NEC are the visitors who looked set to end the league leaders twelve game unbeaten run, however, Sparta managed to net a late equaliser. This is a game the away side should be winning, but I fancy the home side here. 1-0

Roda JC v Telstar

This will be a tough one for Roda to bounce back from after losing 2-0 to fierce rivals MVV last week in a game which involved two red cards. The home side will be without top scorer Mario Engels after he was dismissed after MVV went 1-0 up. They face Telstar who were hammered 4-1 at home to Den Bosch last weekend. 0-0 

Sparta Rotterdam v Jong PSV

Jong PSV who are the league’s top scorers, travel to Rotterdam to face Sparta who has kept the most clean sheets this season. This will be an interesting one to see whether Sparta’s defence can keep the away side at bay. The Rotterdammers salvaged a point in Nijmegen last week, however, it wasn’t enough to maintain top spot.

Monday 26th November (19:00 GMT)

Jong AZ v FC Twente

To round of the game week, Twente face Jong AZ who have lost their last three games 3-1! Twente themselves have lost their last two, one of which was against Go Ahead, divisional and local rivals which would have been a bitter one to take. They must now bounce back immediately to attempt to close down the six-point gap which separates them and first place now. This game will be shown live on Fox Sports NL. 1-3 | Over 2.5 Goals
