Two teams in a desperate need of a win face each other as Den Haag play host to the newly promoted RKC Waalwijk at Mandemakers Stadion.
The life at the top-tier is financially tempting, true, but it’s not easy to operate unless you are a club of the pedigree of the Ajax or the PSV Eindhoven.
Having promoted to the Eredivisie this summer, it’s crystal clear for RKC Waalwijk that it could be a long and an arduous journey this season as they aim to avoid the relegation.
But these are still the early times in the season, and three games can’t be taken as a token for a team’s true potential.
Den Haag will feel the same after starting the season with three straight defeats.
They have been regular in the Dutch Eredivisie in the last six seasons and the aim will be to continue to be a top-tier club for the unforeseeable future.
The Eredivisie match will be played between Den Haag and RKC Waalwijk at Mandemakers Stadion, in Waalwijk, Netherlands. The ground has a capacity of 7,500.
The game will start at 03:45 PM (IST), on Sunday, August 25.

Likely to score:
Captain and Vice-Captain Selection:
Tomas Necid: Had a very solid 2018-19 season as he topped the goal scoring charts for the team. The 30-year-old is already up and running for the season and will be looking to add more to his tally.
Ingo van Weert: Came into the side as a replacement for the suspended Jurien Gaari and grabbed his chance with both hands, as not only he executed his defensive duties, but scored a goal as well.
Darren Maatsen: Made a slow start to the new season. But you can expect a lot from this 28-year-old attacking midfielder.
Anas Tahiri: One of the most complete players in Waalwijk’s team. Not only passing, but the 24-year-old can pop-up with goals as well. Should be in your team.
Elson Hooi: He is a passer of the ball, and has the ability to impact the game both with or without the ball.
DEH vs WLK Dream11 potential winner:
RKC Waalwijk should at least get a draw here.
