Team News: Almere City
Almere City manager Ole Tobiasen has zero fitness concerns to speak of ahead of this match owing to a completely healthy squad to pick from.
Team News: Go Ahead Eagles
GA Eagles boss Kees van Wonderen has to choose a team with limited availability. Martijn Berden (Knee Injury) and Kevin van Kippersluis (Achilles tendon problems) are those who can’t be considered.
We believe that Go Ahead Eagles will need things to go their way to hit the back of the net against this Almere City team who will likely get the vital goal that wins it.
We’re therefore seeing a good battle with a 1-0 victory for Almere City at the end of the 90.
Should be an interesting one.
