FC Emmen vs Groningen FC (By: Stanioooo)
This is a game from the last round in the Netherlands Eredivisie and Emmen will have to host Groningen.
Almost everything is decided in the league before the last round expect which team will grab the last EL play-off place. The battle is between Groningen, Willem and ADO, but ADO and Willem have a direct match, so that's wonderful news for Groningen, mostly because the team behind them in the league is the visitor. Groningen are not the best visitors during the season with only 3 wins and 5 draws, but now they just have to win this match if they want to be sure they will keep their place in the playoffs. If they make a mistake against Emmen and Willem beat ADO as visitors, Willem will take their place. So, you understand Groningen have no other chance than to win this game boosted by their brilliant performance against Fortuna(3:0) 3 days ago.
Emmen practically don't have to play for anything and why not their coach even to rest some of their best players. They saved themselves from the relegation battle after an away win against Willem in the last round. It came after a brilliant comeback, but not so good display by their team. The team can celebrate their survival and participation in Eredivisie during the next season, so I really don't expect them to push so hard against a team which will go to their stadium looking only for the win.
Emmen will miss for sure the injured players Deiman, Pedersen, Klok, Bijlsma and Jansen, while the visitors have no fresh injuries or suspended players.
I don't know if it will be a smooth win for Groningen or not, but the visitors just need the three points to be sure about their playoff place instead of waiting for Willem' mistake against ADO. They are capable of taking the max points here and I am going with them.
