Due to a mostly full-strength group of players, there’s just the sole fitness problem for the De Graafschap gaffer Mike Snoei to contend with. Jonathan Vergara Berrio (Knee Injury) won’t be in action.
We feel that in this game, FC Dordrecht will likely create enough chances to put a goal past this De Graafschap side, but a single goal isn’t likely to be good enough.
Our tip is for a tight encounter finishing with a 1-2 victory for De Graafschap when the referee blows the final whistle. We are expecting it to be pretty even.
