Roda vs Helmond
Netherlands Jupiler League
Roda (9) vs Helmond Sport (18)
Roda got relegated from Eredivisie last season and are not having the start they was hoping for, so they have to start winning matches like this for sure. Total record is 5-3-4 with 15-17 in goal difference. They are coming from winning 1-2 away vs Jong Utrecht (20) and they grabbed 1 point at home vs leaders Sparta Rotterdam (1) in their last home match.
Helmond is the only team without a win so far. They havent improved much from last season, and total record is 0-6-6 with 13-22 in goal difference. With only 1 point from last 4 matches, things doesn’t look good at all. Also worth mentioning that some their latest opponents was teams like Telstar (13), Cambuur (8) & MVV (12), and I consider Roda as better compared with them.
* Last 4 meetings: 3-1-0
* 4 of 6 Helmond losses ended with losing with 2+ goals
I expect the hosts to continue winning now, they have some nice matches in front of them after some hard opponents, and a win here is simply expected from their fans after 4 matches at home without winning (0-2-2). They are considered as a team that should be capable of climbing further on the table, and I think they will. I expect Roda to be fired up and win this match without big problems, its on time for sure.
