Preview: Go Ahead Eagles vs. FC Twente - prediction, team news, lineups

Sports Mole previews Sunday's Eredivisie clash between Go Ahead Eagles and FC Twente, including predictions, team news and possible lineups.

Two in-form sides face off at De Adelaarshorst on Sunday when Go Ahead Eagles play host to FC Twente.

The teams are currently separated by two points and as many places in the league table which should make for an enthralling affair.

Twente were denied a third consecutive league victory following a 0-0 draw versus Feyenoord at De Grolsch Veste on Sunday.

Ron Jans's men went into the game as underdogs but gave a good account of themselves en route to securing an impressive point.

With 22 points from 14 outings so far, the Tukkers are seventh on the log, four points behind fourth-placed Utrecht.

Awaiting the Enschede-based outfit next is a crunch clash versus opponents who they have beaten in just one of the last four competitive meetings.

Go Ahead Eagles returned to winning ways with a narrow 1-0 victory over Willem II on Saturday.

Boyd Lucassen opened the scoring two minutes into the second period, and that was enough to hand Kees Van Wonderen's men all three points in Tilburg.

The Pride of the IJsel Kowet sit ninth on the log as things stand, just two points shy of the last European place.

Sunday's hosts, who suffered a 1-0 loss to Groningen in their last outing on home turf, now set out to make up for that disappointing defeat a fortnight ago.

We say: Go Ahead Eagles 1-2 FC Twente

Both sides come into the game in good form and either of them could end up securing all three points in this one. However, we are backing Twente to emerge victorious, narrowly edging out their hosts by the odd goal.
