Excelsior vs Telstar Prediction
In the current league table, Excelsior is just three points away from Telstar after 21 league appearances each. In terms of scoring and conceding goals in the campaign, Excelsior has outrun Telstar this season.
Besides that, Excelsior will be coming home after a 1-1 draw with Dodrecht in their previous encounter in the league. Even so, the host has three wins in their last five league clashes.
In the meantime, Telstar will be visiting after defeating Eindhoven with a 2-0 scoreline at home. It has marked their fourth unbeaten game in the campaign lately.
At home, Excelsior has lost only three of their 10 matches so far. All these three defeats were against teams above them in the league table. Since Telstar is below them, Excelsior can be expected to perform well at home.
In addition to that, Telstar has been unbeaten in their last five away games with three draws in it. Telstar has faced bottom part teams and failed to take all the points. Hence, their form on the road is confusing in the league.
So, Excelsior has more chance of taking all three points from the clash. Also, we can expect both teams to score goals in ninety minutes.
