The season in Eerste Divisie in the Netherlands is slowly entering its key phase. FC Den Bosch must fight to return to the leader’s seat. On Friday, February 15, the team supported by FutureNet will have a chance to return to the winning path. Its rival will be the Jong AZ Alkmaar.
In the Eerste Divisie, there are 3 junior teams from “large” teams related to bigger Dutch football brands: Jong PSV Eindhoven, Jong Ajax Amsterdam and Jong AZ Alkmaar. Jong PSV has been playing very well in recent weeks: won 3 and drew 3 out of 6 games. It helped the team to jump into the 4th place in the table, with only 3 points of loss to the podium. Jong Ajax plays a bit worse, but also is trustworthy: currently has 36 points and holds 8th place. The weakest team among the league’s junior bands is Jong AZ Alkmaar. In 24 matches, the team won only 3 times, has 16 points, and occupies the 3rd place from the bottom of the table.
For FC Den Bosch, the Friday match will be a chance to break the poor streak. In the last 3 games, the team from Den Bosch lost twice and once drew. After a series of victories lasting several months, FC Den Bosch has a slight crisis that came at a bad moment. Twente Enschede caught the good form, and took the leader’s chair from FC Den Bosch. This is a problem because only the winner of the league will have guaranteed promotion to Eredivisie. The rest of contenders will have to fight in the playoff round, which is always a lottery.
That’s why FC Den Bosch must win in Alkmaar to reduce the 6 points loss to Twente Enschede. And knowing the strength of this team, it’s expected that in this match the guests will get 3 points.
