De Graafschap previously faced VVV on Sunday and the final score was a disappointing 1:2 loss at home. The home crowd, usually referred to as the “12th player”, have failed to significantly impact De Graafschap’s recent ten meetings, as they ended in 3 home victories and 6 away wins. Only one of the club’s last 10 encounters resulted in draws. When we take a look at the last five clashes of the team, we see that three ended with more than 2.5 goals, with three having the two involved teams scoring. De Graafschap managed to keep one clean sheet and were unable to score in just one. Over the course of the squad’s previous five outings, the sides scored an average of 3 goals.
