WIL vs GNG Dream11: Having gone three games without a win, Willem II will look to the home support to get their season on track when they host Groningen in the Dutch Eredivisie this week at Koning Willem II Stadion on Friday night. That said, Willem II are still in a good position to hold onto their Europa League spots. They are 5th heading into this game, six points clear of 8th placed Groningen.

A couple of stars are missing from Willem's active roster due to injury issues.
One of them is Dutch Centre-Back Freek Heerkens, who is recovering from a hamstring injury and is out of this game.
Right-back Fernando Lewis lasted only three games this season after picking up an injury and remains out at the moment.
How Willem II may line-up?
Despite Willem losing 4-2 last week against FC Emmen and going three games without a win in the process, head coach Adrie Koster is expected to stick with the same playing 11.
That could mean, forward Paul Gladon once again featuring from the bench.
Willem II key players:
Vangelis Pavlisids: Almost one-third of Willem's goals have come from Pavlidis' boots. He is into the double-digits and will be looking to add more.
Mats Kohlert: He leads the team with four assists, while he always carries a threat in front of the goal.
Mike Tresor Ndayishimiye: Scored in the last game, and took his goals tally to five goals. He is in good touch.
Groningen team news:
Groningen are without three players in the shape of forward Gabriel Gudmundsson, defender Django Warmerdam and midfielder Ajdin Hrustic.
How Groningen may line-up?
The 1-0 defeat against VVV-Venlo last week came out of blues, for they are in good form, having won four times prior to last weekend's surprise defeat.
Striker Daishawn Redan could lose his place in the side after firing a blank in his third straught game with Romano Postema replacing him in the playing 11.
Midfielder Sam Schreck is also in contention for a start.
Groningen key players:
Joel Asoro: Perhaps the best option from Groningen. He is in good touch.
Azor Matusiwa: More often than not, he controls the game in the midfield for Groningen.
