Match Preview

Though Emmen defied long in-play odds to come back from 2-0 down and draw 3-3 vs Feyenoord last time out, they are in fact worse as favourites. Tellingly, they have lost more than half of the Eredivisie matches in which they have been installed as favourites since their promotion (W1, D2, L4).
Having won both prior top-flight H2Hs so far though, the hosts will feel confident of making it three out of three here. If they lose, however, they will likely do so with some gravitas, with three of Emmen’s five league defeats this term coming by at least a two-goal margin.
Visiting coach Alfons Groenendijk arrives here unbeaten in five of his eight prior H2Hs with Emmen (W4, D1, L3). Three of Groenendijk’s four H2H victories vs Emmen saw his side score at least three goals and win by at least a two-goal margin.
Albeit against more seasoned top-flight opposition than Emmen, over a third of Den Haag’s conceded league goals thus far have come between the 31st minute and half-time (38.46%). Meanwhile, half of their Eredivisie goals scored away from home have arrived between the 76th minute and full-time.
Players to watch: Assisting two of Emmen’s goals last time out, defender Glenn Bijl was booked for the second time. He has received at least eight in each of the last two campaigns.
Two second-half strikes from Den Haag’s Tomáš Necid were enough to secure their sole away victory. All three of his 2019/20 goals have been scored away from home.
Stat attack: Five of Emmen’s six home league goals this season have come before half-time.
Since the start of 2018/19, Den Haag’s Eredivisie record as an away outsider is: W6, D5, L8.
Two of Alfons Groenendijk’s three managerial defeats vs Emmen have been played out with current Emmen boss Dick Lukkien in the other dugout.
