Preview: FC Eindhoven vs ADO Den Haag – predictions, team news, rosters

Sports Mole previews Saturday’s Eredivisie promotion play-off clash between FC Eindhoven and ADO Den Haag, including predictions, team news and possible line-ups.

FC Eindhoven welcome Teen The Hague at the Jan Louwers Stadion on Saturday with both teams vying for a place in the Eredivisie promotion playoff final.

On the back of a narrow triumph for the visitors in the first leg, the tie remains finely balanced with every outcome still possible.


Match preview

ADO Den Haag took control with a 2-1 win over FC Eindhoven on Monday.

First half goals Dhoraso Moreo Klas and Thomas Verheydt put John Franken‘s men in front cruise control Joey Slegers removed one from the penalty spot.

De Ooievaars have now won all three of their playoff matches by a combined score of 6-3 heading into the second leg of their semi-final.

Unbeaten in their last 11 matches against their next opponents, Saturday’s visitors will be keen to finish the job and take a big step back into the Dutch top flight.

Once again, Eindhoven must win at home in order to preserve their dream of promotion to the Eredivisie.

Rob PenderThe men will take great inspiration from Graafschap’s 3-1 defeat in their last home game.

A similar result would once again be enough for a team used to finding the back of the net, having scored in 20 consecutive matches.

However, Saturday’s hosts have also failed to keep a clean sheet in each of their last four games, and changing that could be the difference between success and failure this weekend.
