Willem II and Twente will battle for three points on matchday 20 of the Eredivisie on Saturday.

The two sides will be looking to return to winning ways following their respective defeats last time out. The hosts suffered a 2-0 loss away to Zwolle in league action last weekend with midfielder Thomas van den Belt scoring a brace.

Twente were eliminated from the KNVB Beker courtesy of a 2-1 defeat to AZ Alkmaar on home turf. The visitors clawed back from a one-goal deficit to secure progress to the last eight of the competition.

The Enschede outfit will be hoping for better returns in league action, where they sit in sixth place with 35 points accrued from 19 matches. Willem II are just outside the relegation zone, with four points separating them from the drop zone.
