The home team reaches this stage of the Eredivisie (UEFA Europa League – Play-offs Semifinals) after having finished the previous round in 6th position, with 53 points won. This is a team that, curiously, has more positive results away than at home, since in the last 30 games it has registered 7 wins, 5 draws and 3 losses as a visitor, with 27 goals scored and 16 received, against 5 wins, 6 draws and 4 defeats at home, with 23 goals scored and 23 conceded. For the league, Utrecht won 15 points out of a possible 30 points, after 4 wins, 3 draws and 3 losses in the last 10 home games. Defensive solidity has not been his strong point, since he has conceded goals in 7 of the last 10 games, but his attack has scored regularly, since he has scored goals in 8 of the last 10 games of this competition. In their home matches there is a tendency for goals, since 15 of the last 17 matches for the competition have ended with Over 1.5 goals. In 34 games in this competition he suffered the first goal 11 times and only managed 2 laps on the scoreboard.

The Utrecht team will try to take control of the game, to win. We waited for a home team to prevail, thus starting their opponent and trying to score goals early in the match. The coach must not have significant absences for this game.

Groningen analysis

The visiting team managed to enter this decisive phase of the Eredivisie (UEFA Europa League – Play-off semi-finals), after the 7th position they won in the previous phase, in which they achieved a total of 50 points. This is a team that maintains its performance when it plays outside its stadium, since in the last 30 games it has registered 5 wins, 2 draws and 8 losses as a visitor; against 6 victories, 6 draws and 3 defeats in his stadium. In the last 10 away games, Groningen have 3 wins, 1 draw and 6 losses, having won 10 points out of a possible 30. The team has conceded goals in 7 of the last 10 matches for this competition, so their defense has not been very strong. In 34 matches in this competition he suffered the first goal 16 times and only managed 1 return on the scoreboard.

Groningen are aware that it will not be an easy game, so they will have to be vigilant on the pitch. We waited for a team to score strong and bet on counterattacks to try to end the game. The coach must put a very competitive team on the field in this match and they will fight for a positive result.
