On IJsseldelta Stadium in Utrecht and Zwolle local band will meet today in the first leg of the play-off to qualify for the Europa League. It will be an interesting double the Utrecht starts with a slight advantage, especially since the dispute and won both direct current season.
Zwolle lost at home to PSV Eindhoven 1: 3 but the “stars” were aligned for it to go into this play-off. He finished the season in eighth place and because NEC Nijmegen not won in Rotterdam with Feyenoord, but reached the play-offs and as AZ Alkmaar team that finished the fourth regular season, he has the right to participate in the European Cups. Zwolle took ten goals in his last four competitive matches but seven of them were collected Away. Home has a game better, succeeding the last five months seven wins from nine possible in front of their fans. In addition to NEC Nijmegen game with all other disputes in this period they had both goals in the gates.
Four players will miss today from Utrecht. In his absence Schenkeveld, Saymak, Ryan Thomas and Karagounis would be surprising if we see the same first pitch Sunday 11 beat PSV Einhoven.

Utrecht was sure he would play the second leg of this dam away regardless of the latest results from the regular season, so not performed at full capacity in the last round. He played with the neighbor ranking Alkmaar home, which was defeated 1: 3. Utrecht has actually three failures in their previous four matches in all competitions. He played in early April four matches away from its own arena (three in the championship and one Dutch Cup) and all ended with goals in both gates notable thing if we think that visited during this time three teams from the Top 6 even two of those who finished the season on the podium.
Erik ten Hag, recently awarded the title of coach of the year in the Netherlands today can not count past the number one team, Robbin Ruiter being injured. Next to it will be missing tonight Hardeveld Jeff, Kevin Conboy Sean Klaiber.
Host band duel tonight will have to take great care after the match, that if we consider how ended direct duels of the season. Utrecht scored both goals that made the difference after 86 minutes.
