Excelsior vs Nijmegen Match Preview And Prediction

Excelsior vs Nijmegen: Excelsior enters this game on the heels of a 2-2 Eredivisie draw with Ajax. Excelsior had 43% of the possession in that game and two of their nine total shots on goal were on target. Lazaros Lamprou (53′) and Julian Baas (38′) scored the goals for Excelsior. Two of Ajax’s eight efforts on goal were on target. Ajax’s goals came from Devyne Rensch (27′) and Chuba Akpom (89′).

Excelsior has struggled to maintain a lead for the entire ninety minutes of recent games. In actuality, Excelsior’s defense has been broken in five of their last six games, allowing ten goals to be scored over that span.

After suffering a setback to AZ in Eredivisie play the previous time, NEC and its traveling supporters will be looking to improve on that outcome in this match. NEC had 54% of the possession in that game and none of its 14 total attempted shots on goal was on target.

On the opposite side, Arizona had eleven total shots on goal, three of them were on target. For AZ, goals came from Dani de Wit (16′), Vangelis Pavlidis (58′), and Ernest Poku (95′).

Considering their current play, NEC has allowed goals in five of their previous six games, allowing the opposition to score eight goals in total. NEC’s weaknesses have been shown in the back. We’ll watch to see if that pattern continues into this upcoming game.

Excelsior vs Nijmegen: Betting Analysis

With four straight wins in their last five games, Nijmegen is now just two points behind Ajax in the top five. They are also now enjoying a two-game road winning run. Excelsior, however, had lost 12 of their previous 13 league games. In addition, they had lost three of their previous six home games, making them winless in five of those games.

In light of all these findings, our primary selection for this matchup is the away victory. In the last five away victories, Nijmegen has scored goals at a rate of more than 2.5. Even if we don’t anticipate a very high-scoring match from Nijmegen, a 2-1 correct result seems like a good idea.

Excelsior vs Nijmegen: Head-To-Head

Who will win the match between Excelsior and Nijmegen?

A single goal might not be quite enough to prevent a loss, but we have a feeling Excelsior can definitely put one past this NEC lineup. In the end, we predict that both teams will score, giving NEC the victory. We anticipate that it will be quite even.


Our Prediction: Over 1.5 Goals
