Jong FC Utrecht v NAC Breda
In Italy yesterday, Roma beat Sampdoria 1-0 and it was an ex-Premier League player who got the goal. But it wasn’t Kev’s man Tammy. It was Henrikh Mkhitaryan. But Kev’s had a good week and he gets to put his feet up for a few days now.
Our shift begins in the Netherlands, where NAC Breda are headed to Jong Utrecht for one of tonight’s four Eerstedivisie games. We fancy the visitors to get the right result.
Last time out on the road, Edwin de Graaf’s Breda suffered a bad reverse at rock-bottom Helmond. However, they are still W5-D0-L2 travelling to bottom-half teams since the start of the season, winning on 3/4 of their most recent road trips. They also won on their only previous trip to Utrecht since returning to the second tier.
Jong Utrecht are second bottom of the 20-team league and have lost more home games than anyone else: W4-D0-L12. The four wins came against teams now 14th or lower. Against everyone else, they’ve lost 10/10. Breda are ninth and we like the odds-against price on them making it 11/11 this evening.
