Excelsior vs Cambuur – Prediction, and Match Preview

Excelsior vs Cambuur – After suffering a setback to FC Emmen by a score of 2-0 in the Eredivisie in their most recent match, Excelsior will be hoping for a better showing here. Ole Romeny scored two goals for FC Emmen in the 63rd and 71st minutes.

The amount of games in which Excelsior has not scored any points in recent memory share a common trait. If you had bet on both teams scoring in any of their five previous matches before this one, you would have lost.

These teams have faced off six times before this one. The only thing left to do is wait and see if that pattern will be repeated here.

Excelsior has not been victorious at home in any of their previous four league contests prior to this matchup. Things are going to have to shift in the near future.

SC Cambuur will be looking to get back on track after a disappointing performance in their previous Eredivisie match against PSV Eindhoven. They will be hoping for a victory here.

Remco Balk (in the 22nd minute) and Bjrn Johnsen (in the 61st minute) were the goal scorers for SC Cambuur. PSV Eindhoven’s goals were scored by Xavi Simons (in the 25th minute), Patrick van Aanholt (in the 54th minute), Anwar El Ghazi (in the 56th and 88th minutes), and Fábio Silva (in the 65th minute).

When looking at their recent encounters, SC Cambuur have given up goals in 5 of their last 6 games, for a total of 15 goals conceded in their matches. When it comes to defense, SC Cambuur could really benefit from some reinforcements.

Examining their historical performance reveals that SC Cambuur have not suffered a defeat at the hands of Excelsior in any of their five most recent matches played away from home in the league. A very strong run of results for them, and in their most recent three league games played away from home, they have not won.

Excelsior vs Cambuur – Betting Analysis

Examining their most recent head-to-head matches dating back to 08/05/2016 reveals that Excelsior has won two of them, SC Cambuur has won four, and there have been no draws.

There were 22 goals scored in those contests, for an average of 3.67 goals per match. The prior league encounter between these clubs took place on Eredivisie match day 1 on August 6, 2022, and was won by SC Cambuur 0–2 Excelsior. Edwin van de Graaf served as the official.

For Excelsior head coach Marinus Dijkhuizen, Yassin Ayoub (muscle injury), Kik Pierie (muscle injury), and Jacky Donkor (knee injury) won’t be able to play.

We anticipate that Roodzwarten will start Stijn van Gassel, Siebe Horemans, Sven Nieuwpoort, Redouan El Yaakoubi, Nathan Tjoe-A-On, Kenzo Goudmijn, Peer Koopmeiners, Noah Naujoks, Couhaib Driouech, Lazaros Lamprou, and Nikolas Agrafiotis in a 4-3-3 formation for the match.

There is only one fitness worry for SC Cambuur manager Sjors Ultee due to a team that is mostly operating at full strength. Maxim Gullit won’t be participating because of a knee injury.

Robbin Ruiter, Alex Bangura, Leon Bergsma, Floris Smand, Sai van Wermeskerken, Daniel van Kaam, Mitchell Paulissen, Navarone Foor, Remco Balk, Bjorn Johnsen, and Mimoun Mahi are the players we think Herten is most likely to start the game with. We predict that SC Cambuur and Excelsior will likely have trouble scoring in this situation.
