⚽️De Graafschap Doetinchem and its current form
De Superboeren did not play a competitive game after March 8th, 2020.
They played 6 test matches before starting their second season after relegation in the second division of Holland.
They won 5 games and once they had to admit defeat.
De Graafschap Doetinchem vs. Heracles Almelo: 1-0
De Graafschap Doetinchem vs. SC Heerenveen: 5-1
De Graafschap Doetinchem vs. FC Volendam: 1: 2
Eindhoven vs: De Graafschap Doetinchem: 0: 1
De Graafschap Doetinchem vs. Helmond: 3: 1
De Treffers vs: De Graafschap Doetinchem: 4: 1
In their 1st season after relegation in the Keuken Kampioen Divisie, they signed Mike Snoei as coach on July 1st, 2019.
The 56 year old has an average success rate as a coach of 1.42 PPS. He has already met Den Bosch eight times as a coach and once with their trainer Erik van der Ven.
Between 2017 and 2019 there were 5 games against Den Bosch and between 2004 and 2008 3 games. In total he was only able to win two and four times they had to admit defeat.
A draw was possible twice. In these 8 games his men finished 17 times and allowed 22 goals.
He faced Erik van der Ven on December 6th, 2019.
At that time the duel was already called Den Bosch against De Graafschap. This ended with 2: 2.
Mike Snoei previously coached Telestar for 80 games, with average success.
⚽️The past season of De Graafschap Doetinchem
As is well known, the last season was canceled after 29 match days. De Superboeren finished this with 62 points as runner-up.
Bitter, because they would have had 9 more game days to possibly even move up again. 17 wins, 11 draws and only 1 defeat were possible in 2019/20, as well as a goal balance of 63:28. They had the third strongest team by goals and at the same time they had the second best defense. In 2019/20 they also provided the second strongest home and away team.
They didn’t have to accept a single defeat in their home stadium, but decided 10 games for themselves and contented themselves with 4 draws.
They came to a conclusion 36 times in 14 games and allowed 10 goals. If you compare this home performance with Den Bosch’s away record, nothing should stand in the way of a victory.
⚽️Summer transfers from De Graafschap
The men from Doetinchem lost 9 players in the summer of 2020. Among them are Branco van den Boomen and Leeroy Owusu, among others.
These players were among the strongest last season. New in the squad they brought 7 players, whereby Alkmaar only loaned the keeper Rody de Boer.
Perhaps the most interesting addition is Danny Verbeek, who was previously a midfielder with FC Den Bosch.
⚽️The current form of FC Den Bosch
FC Den Bosch also played its last competitive game on March 6, 2020. On August 17th, 2020 they were back on the pitch for a test match.
They played 6 games, of which they decided 3 and were good for 1 draw.
Den Bosch vs. Jong AZ: 2: 2
Almere vs Den Bosch: 1-0
TEC vs. Den Bosch: 1-0
Den Bosch vs: Roda Kerkrade: 2: 1
Den Bosch vs. De hits: 5-0
Den Bosch vs. Nivo Sparta: 9-0
So it can be said that they were just as successful as De Graafschap. Since 09.08.2019 they have taken Erik van der Ven under their wing as a trainer.
The 36 year old has an average success rate of 1.44 PPS. He only met Graafschap and Snoei once. This was the case on December 6th, 2019.
This game ended with 2: 2. Van der Ven has been a coach at Den Bosch since the beginning of his coaching career.
First he was their youth coach and then assistant coach or responsible for the U19 and Den Bosch II.
He coached Den Bosch for 4 games on an interim basis and since 08/09/2019 as head coach.
⚽️Last season from FC Den Bosch
For FC Den Bosch, the 2019/20 season ended after 29 match days. Because of a license violation they also had to accept a deduction of 6 points.
Nevertheless, they finished last season with 35 points in 12th place in the table. With 6 points more on the account, they would only have advanced to the 11th.
They won 10 games and took 11 draws. They admitted defeat 8 times. They came to the conclusion 56 times and allowed 49 points. They are sixth best offensive and eleventh best defensively.
The Bosch also provided the sixth weakest home team and the eleventh best away team in the league. As a result, they could win 4 games away, make 5 draws and 5 times they were defeated.
They finished 25 times and allowed 29 goals. Rather modest prospects for a possible win against De Graafschap.
⚽️Summer transfers at FC Den Bosch
10 players were eliminated from FC Den Bosch in summer 2020. These include their high-end players Rúben Rodrigues and
Jens van Son, who went to FC Eindhoven.
Likewise, 8 protagonists were newly brought into the squad.
Whereby 6 from Den Bosch II switched to the combat team. Only the Kozakken Boys signed Don Bolsius and FC Dordrecht Dwayne Green.
So their squad should be relatively well established.
Football Prediction of the Day VBV De Graafschap vs FC Den Bosch
We suspect that De Graafschap will win this game, after all, their squad is stronger and they were able to decide the last home game against Den Bosch.
The odds for tip 1 are a bit modest, which is why this win bet would be well suited for a combination bet or system bet. We can advise on an over / under bet on under 3.5 goals or on a placement on a yes for both teams.
If you consider that 2 of the last 3 direct duels ended with a draw, an outsider bet in the form of a double chance tip X / 2 would even come into question.
So you would win if FC Den Bosch wins or if you draw.
