18:30 De Graafschap – Volendam

De Graafschap will face Volendam in the first leg of the last match deciding who makes it into the top tier the Eredivisie next season. For both sides this honor is just as important as they relegated at about the same time and haven't come back since, so a golden opportunity in which both might play all or nothing. The main reason why I pick De Graafschap is because they managed to knock out Go Ahead Eagles in the last round in an upset that nobody really saw coming because GAE are a very strong home side and were even going good in the league until the end. So at home in a fully packed stadium I would have to give them the advantage over Volendam who I honestly thought were very lucky in their previous matches against FC Eindhoven (winning 2-1 and drawing 1-1) despite FC Eindhoven having the vast majority of the chances and the better ones by far. For me this tricky leg will go towards De Graafschap.
