Cambuur vs NEC Nijmegen Predictions & Match Preview

Cambuur vs NEC Nijmegen
Netherlands – Eerste Divisie
Date: Friday, 8th February 2019
Kick-off at 19.00 UK/ 20.00 CET
Venue: CambuurStadion (Leeuwarden).

Both teams are going through a lean patch, slightly affecting their march towards the playoffs. But nothing is lost yet, as either has enough points to make a serious attempt at those spots.

Nothing much separates these groups, with parity in goal difference (both maintain a zero GD), and just a difference of three points on the table. As is the norm, the home advantage would be a big factor and presents the tag of the favorites for the Yellow-Blues.

FerdyDruijf will be a major threat for the home team, and if they intend on cashing in their advantage, the player needs to be taken care of, and all passing lanes to him must be cut off. With 19 goals and one assist, he is in contention for the Eerste Divisie Golden Boot.

Cambuur vs NEC Nijmegen Prediction

Their long h2h history has never seen a victory by the team on the road. This additionally means that Rene Hake’s men have maintained a 100% unbeaten record at the CambuurStadion, against this opponent. Also, the team from Nijmegen was winless in five of their last 21 overall ties, and in nine of their last 11 away fixtures. Expect the hosts to avoid a loss at all costs in this tie.
