Almere City vs Excelsior Match Preview and Prediction

Almere City vs Excelsior: Almere will be anxious to regain their winning streak after losing two games in a row. They will have enough heart to play Excelsior, who are currently 11th in the league standings, three spots ahead of them.

Almere has been performing well in the league recently. As previously stated, Almere had a tremendous winning streak until going winless in their past two league games. Meanwhile, Excelsior has recently performed poorly in the league.

Their most recent league match ended in a 1-1 draw with Utrecht. It was their 15th winless season in the league. The situation is similar on the road, with the team winning only twice out of nine league games. Excelsior should have a difficult match on Friday, based on the current situation.

We anticipate a difficult test for the visiting team on Friday. The main reason for this is their poor driving performance. Their hosts, Almere, are in good form at home in the league, having gone unbeaten in five of their last six games. Knowing Almere’s impressive head-to-head record, we recommend a home win as the major betting option for this match.

Almere City vs Excelsior: Betting Analysis

We predict that this game will have more goals than 2.5. The primary motivation behind this advice is the high-scoring nature of the majority of their most recent head-to-head matches. Additionally, both teams’ most recent league records were highly scoring.

In the last six meetings with Excelsior, Almere City has prevailed four times. Goals above 2.5 fulltime have been scored in five of the last seven head-to-head encounters between these two. In their head-to-head matches with Excelsior at this stadium, Almere has won five straight.

Excelsior has only won four games this season and has lost four of the last five league games. Almere played two straight games without winning, snapping a two-game winning streak in the league.
Over 50% of both teams’ league matches and three of Excelsior’s last five had goals over 2.5 at halftime.

Who will win the match between Almere City and Excelsior?

We believe that Almere City will win and maybe keep a clean sheet; therefore, Excelsior will have a difficult task in trying to overcome them. As a result, our prediction is for a closely contested match that ends with Almere City winning 1-0.


Our Prediction: Under 3.5 Goals
