Bet365 tips Eredivisie Saturday’s clash predictions between Emmen and PEC Zwolle, including hunches, preview and possible lineups.
Still looking for their first league win of the season, last club Emmen to receive PEC Zwolle for De Oude Meerdijk on Saturday.
On the other hand, the visitors are currently going through a mini-drought period, having not won any of the last four league games, and adding only three points out of 12 possible.
Emmen suffered their fourth consecutive loss in the league, and eighth in the last 10 games, when they were defeated 1-0 by RKC Waalwijk on Friday.
With each passing week, the chances of them falling to the second division of Dutch football increase and, frankly, it is difficult to imagine a turnaround at this point.
Dick LukkienThe team’s men won just six points in their first 22 league games, but one came in the December reverse game at the Mac3Park Stadion.
Overall, the hosts have not had the best of this game, with only two wins in the last 16 meetings dating back to 2008.
In addition, they have yet to win a home game against Saturday’s visitors at that time, and now is as good a time as any to break that particular duck.
Zwolle has been in bad shape since the turn of the year, having won just one victory in nine league games so far.
John StegemanThe men started the year in 11th position, but have since dropped to 13th on the Eredivisie table after a 1-0 loss to Groningen on Saturday.
However, the Blauwvingers are only six points from the top half the way things are, and they can still end up there if they act again.
An important department that needs to be fixed is defensive obstinacy away from home, as only three teams across the division have left more goals away from home than Saturday’s visitors.

All news from the teams
Caner Cavlan suffered a blow in the middle of the second half of Emmen’s defeat against AZ Alkmaar and, consequently, is eliminated for this game.
Luciano Carty, Lentini Caciano and Marko Kolar they will all be absent for the game, but Dick Lukkien may have them back for his team’s trip to Utrecht.
Pelle Clement will miss the first of three games after being sent off against Groningen, while Bram van Polen will play the last game of the suspension after being sent off in Utrecht a few weeks ago.
Kenneth Paal returned from a knee injury the last time, but he may have to settle for an appearance as a substitute again while trying to get back into full form.
Yet, Mike van Duinen and Slobodan Tedic will not be present in this as they continue to deal with injuries to the ankle and ribs, respectively.
Possible initial lineup of Emmen:
Verrips; Araujo, Bakker, Veendorp, Bijl; Bernadou, Vlak, Pena; Ben Moussa, Avdijaj, De Leeuw
Possible initial PEC Zwolle lineup:
Zetterer; Nakayama, Lam, Strieder, Wermeskerken; Huiberts, Lam, Reijnders; Pherai, Buitink, Misidjan
Probability: Emmen 0-1 PEC Zwolle
Zwolle will turn to take the three points against a team without a victory for Emmen, whose search for the first victory should last another week.
