ADO Den Haag vs Excelsior Predictions & Match Preview

ADO Den Haag vs Excelsior
Netherlands – Eredivisie
Date: Thursday, 25th April 2019
Kick-off at 17.30 UK/ 18.30 CET
Venue: Cars Jeans Stadion (Den Haag).

Excelsior is slowly making that death march towards the Eerste Divisie. With just nine more points to play for, they have to make up six points in surplus to escape relegation. On top of that, the team they are trying to replace, Emmen, is pitted against another relegation-battler Graafschap. No matter who wins that tie, it’s bad news for Excelsior.

Den Haag is virtually safe from getting a boot, and as such can show some complacency or relaxation in their games. But since this one being one of their last chances this season to tie boots in front of their home crowd, the team would love to go out strong.

ADO Den Haag vs Excelsior Prediction

Excelsior has no option but to win this tie. And the same reason will be what dealing out a loss to them this Thursday. Already they are on a nine-match winless run on the road, with eight of them losses. Also, they remained winless in 13 of their last 14 attempts on the road. Just the last way tie, they conceded six goals, and they let in two or more goals in eight of their last thirteen fixtures away from home.

In the meanwhile, Den Haag recorded a 5-0 win in their last home tie and scored two or more goals in five of their last seven home fixtures.

Going on, Den Haag won six of the last seven h2h encounters and registered 14 of the last 18 h2h wins. Finally, the team has never failed to score at this venue and lost just once to Excelsior in the last 17 years.

On a final note, the desperation of the visitors will be exploited to its limit. And since they have to win, they will be forced to attack, which will be taken advantage of, by the hosts. And once the first goal is scored, it’d be floodgates opened for the home team.

Expect a cruising win for the home team.
