Roda vs Twente (By: Dajkula)
Roda will welcome Twente in round 27 of the Eerste Divisie. The hosts are 6`th on the table with 42 points and 12-6-8 so far. The direct promotion is far off and they will have to fight hard in the play-off. They were tipped as one of the favorites for promotion but they fell flat, mostly on the travels. Roda has good results on home ground this season but they are finding it hard against the top opposition. Here, Roda has 7-3-3 and they have been good lately, but generally, they are inconsistent. Roda has 2-2-2 from the last 6 matches and they went high with a win over AZ II 6:2 to a low against Ajax II and a 5:1 loss.
Twente is surely the prime candidate for promotion now even it didn`t look like it at the beginning of the season. Things have come to place however and Twente have asserted themselves to the rest of the league. They are practically in the league of their own and the results show it. They have won the last 10 matches and were propelled to the top of the standings. With 19-2-5 and 52:24 gd nobody can come close. They have taken some good wins lately against Sparta away 0:3, PSV II away 0:2, Almere 1:3. They look tight in defense and clinical in attack. I do fancy them playing good in the top tier this year.
Roda will have some missings today and so will Twente.
Roda is without: Vansteenkiste(def.19-0), Paulissen(mid.21-5, second scorer), Remans(att.16-3), El Makrini(mid.19-0), Van Eijma(def.13-0), Zotti(def.9-0).
Twente is without: Nacho(def.17-3), Ramos(def.17-0), Van der Lely(def.1-0), Roemeratoe(mid.1-0), Hölscher(mid.18-1), Zekhnini(att.18-4), Brama(mid.18-0).
There are a lot of missings on both sides but with Twente running hot lately, I can`t go against them.
Twente dominates in this tie and they won in 3 of the last 4 visits. I will take them again.
