After 25 games, there is only one point separating the two sides. Due to their successful seasons thus far in the season, both clubs still have dreams of playing in Europe.
This is especially beneficial for RKC Waalwijk, who are only six points behind Utrecht in seventh place and have a game in hand over them.
In their previous match, contested two weeks ago, Waalwijk lost 0-1 to PSV Eindhoven at home, snapping a two-game winning streak.
The Joseph Oosting-led squad was not in competition last weekend because their match against the Go Ahead Eagles was postponed.
With 6 victories, 3 ties, and only 3 losses in their 12 league games at Mandemakers Stadion this season, RKC still has a good home record. Can they beat NEC on Saturday and get back to winning?
In the last weekend’s game against Utrecht, the guests were unable to hold onto an early two-goal lead, and they ultimately had to settle for a 2-2 draw at their Goffertstadion.
Rogier Meijer’s team has only accrued one point in their last two league contests, but it is important to note that they had previously defeated Volendam and Excelsior by scores of 3-0 each.
