Their more recent scorelines shine a light on the fact that things are going according to plan in the Go Ahead Eagles defence. Trots aan de IJssel have been stingy, seeing the number of goals that have flown into the back of their net over the course of their past six clashes standing at 3. Nonetheless, it remains to be seen if that pattern shall continue on here in this game or not.

- haven’t lost in the league to Den Bosch in their last 2 games.

Team News: Go Ahead Eagles
Almost everyone can be considered, as there’s just the lone fitness concern for the Go Ahead Eagles manager Kees van Wonderen to be concerned about from an otherwise complete group of players. Kevin van Kippersluis (Achilles tendon problems) won’t play.
Team News: Den Bosch
Den Bosch manager Erik van de Ven has to choose from a squad that has some fitness concerns. Steven van der Heijden (Knock), Jordy van der Winden (Knee Surgery) and Junior van der Velden (Hip Injury) can’t be considered.
In our opinion, Go Ahead Eagles will probably score a couple of goals against Den Bosch, who will not find it easy to break down their defence.
