Utrecht sit in the final UEFA Cup play-off spot and with two very tough matches remaining ( PSV & Groningen), they are desperate for the 3 points tonight.

Their away form leaves a lot to be desired, 9 points and just 8 goals, hardly inspires confidence, but then they do not play Sparta every week.

The hosts have won only once in 11 starts, that sole victory coming against basement club Den Haag. They have conceded 60 goals in Eredivisie, a total which would normally leave them booked for relegation. However, they appear safe from such concerns and have little to play for. They have made noises about still looking for an Intertoto place, but in poor form and with a trip to Ajax up next, that is not very likely.

The visitors impressed in their last outing , knocking 3 past Willem II, they are motivated to win and are talking a good game in pre match interviews. Both teams are missing several players, but Utrecht's greater need, should see them home.

4.5 points Utrecht level ball 1.88 asian line. result 1-1 bet void

Good Luck.
