The point scored in Amsterdam has its meaning, as FC Den Bosch is still fighting to clinch the spot in the Dutch Eredivisie.

Currently, Twente Enschede is the leader and with 60 points, it seems to be out of reach for the rest. But Sparta Rotterdam (2nd place, 51 points) and Go Ahead Eagles (3rd place, 50 points) are still on FC Den Bosch's radar (4th place, 49 points). But under one condition: the team from Den Bosch must win, ending its lasting for more than a month now streak without a win in the league.


Will it be the day of breakthrough? FC Den Bosch faces Jong Ajax Amsterdam

It's been over a month since FC Den Bosch's last win in the league. On Friday, March 1, a team supported by FutureNet will have the opportunity to break this series playing with Jong Ajax Amsterdam. The Ajax Amsterdam football school is considered one of the best in the world. A lot of great players took their first steps in football there, such as twin brothers de Boer, Patrick Kluivert, Rafael van der Vaart, Edwin van der Saar, Ryan Babel, Nigel de Jong, Clarence Seedorf, Wesley Sneijder and many others. Young footballers of Jong Ajax learn to play in adult football in the reserve team, which this season is playing in the Dutch Erste Divisie. So far, they've been doing quite good this season. Jong Ajax is currently on 9th place out of 20 teams, has 40 points and won 12 out of 26 matches. In the last 6 games the team scored 4 wins and 2 draws. These numbers show that the youth team of Ajax Amsterdam can be dangerous for any rival in this league. FC Den Bosch has a worse streak lately. By January 2019, the team had gone from victory to victory, but later a little crisis arrived. As a result, players from Den Bosch have been waiting for another win for over a month. And time is running out - FC Den Bosch has lost the leading position, and now Twente Enschede is in the top position in the table. Second place belongs to Sparta Rotterdam, which has 48 points (the same as FC Den Bosch), and Go Ahead Eagles (47 points) has the 4th place. These statistics show that the team from Den Bosch must quickly return to its best, because the rivals are pushing hard.


FC Den Bosch - MVV Maastricht 1:2

FC Den Bosch lost the home game against MVV Maastricht 1:2 and now is on the 3rd place in the table of the Dutch Eerste Divisie. The second half of the match turned out to be crucial. Until the break, MVV Maastricht led 1:0, after the goal scored by Anthony van den Hurk in the 3rd minute. FC Den Bosch started this meeting badly, but in the next minutes tried to make up for the loss. In the first 45 minutes, this mission wasn't completed, but at the beginning of the second half, luck smiled. In the 54th minute, Dimitri Lavalee scored an own goal and led to a draw. In the end, MVV Maastricht didn't give away a valuable away victory. In 73th minute, van den Hurk scored his 2nd goal in this match and set the final result. The defeat is expensive for FC Den Bosch, because the team has dropped from 2nd to 3rd place in the league's table. And this means that the fight for promotion to Eredivisie will be very difficult for FC Den Bosch.


An important game before FC Den Bosch

It's been over a month without a win, so it's time for FC Den Bosch to get back on the right path. On Friday, February 22, FC Den Bosch will face MVV Maastricht with the hope of winning the first for a long time set of points. MVV Maastricht is currently a team from the middle of the table. Before the match with FC Den Bosch, MVV holds 7th place in the table, having 39 points (11 wins, 6 draws, 8 defeats). MVV is in an interesting situation, because there are 15 rounds left until the end of the main round in the league, and the team from Maastricht currently loses 8 points to Go Ahead Eagles, which is on 3th place (47 points). In addition, MVV is running a great series of 4 wins in a row. If it maintains a good form, can join the fight for a place in the playoffs for promotion to Erstedivisie. The team presents an equal form both in the attack (34 goals scored), as well as in defense (31 goals lost). MVV Maastricht is one of the oldest football clubs in the Netherlands. It was founded in 1902, and for more than 100 years of its activity, its players twice won the championship of the Netherlands (1983/1984, 1996/1997), and once the European Intertoto Cup (1970). Last years are a worse time for this well-deserved club and it is not expected that MVV will be promoted to the best league in the Netherlands this season. However, MVV Maastricht shouldn't be underestimated, and it's also worth to remember that FC Den Bosch recently has had a hard time and scored its last win more than a month ago. That's why we can exepct a tough game between these two teams.

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.


Tough game and valuable point. FC Den Bosch - FC Volendam 1:1

The breakthrough came as expected: FC Den Bosch ended a losing streak and finally scored points aftera draw with FC Volendam 1:1. The previous two matches weren't successful for FC Den Bosch.

Fortunately, the match schedule brought the home match to the table, and it's always easier to return to the right track with the support of own fans. On Friday, February 8, FC Den Bosch faced FC Volendam on its own ground. It was a difficult match for the hosts. The lower rated rival put the bar high and to the break the guests were leading 1:0. On 36th minute, Deul scored the goal. FC Den Bosch equalized just after resuming the game: at 52th minute Blummel defeated the goalie of FC Volendam. Until the end of the match, there was a tough fight on the pitch, which is why this point should be respected. Especially since it is getting crowdy at the top of the table in the Eerste Divisie. Twente Enschede is the leader with 53 points, which in the last matches played great and took the chance to build significant advantage over rest of the teams. FC Den Bosch (47 points) is in second place and must work hard to regain the lead because only the leader will get a direct to the Eeredivisie.


Time to break the losing streak for FC Den Bosch

After a short series of away games, FC Den Bosch players return to their own stadium. It's time to break the losing streak, because the last results of the team weren't the best.

Twente Enschede (50 points) took the leader's chair, and the team from Den Bosch is now a runner-up (46 points). Behind her, the Go Ahead Eagles is nearby (43 points), so it's time to go back to the winning path. The nearest rival of FC Den Bosch will be FC Volendam. This is a team from 13th place out of 20 teams. FC Voldendam has 31 points and loses only 4 points to FC Oss, which takes 7th place. This shows the specifics of the situation in the Eerste Divisie, where there is a large crowd in the middle of the table and several victories in a row can raise the team up. The team from Volendam is distinguished by a good defense game: the team has lost 34 goals, which is one of the better results in the league. FC Den Bosch currently occupies a place that will give him the right to play in the playoffs for promotion to Eredivisie. Direct promotion is reserved only for of the winner of the competition. FC Den Bosch used to be the leader but now has to chase Twente Enschede. This goal can be acomplished, but on one condition: this team must return to winning.
