Excelsior vs Willem II
Netherlands – Eredivisie
Date: Friday, 6 April 2018
Kick-Off at 19:00 UK
Venue: Van Donge & De Roo Stadion (Rotterdam).
Willem II continued with super impressive attacking showings last Saturday when they notched three past Utrecht. Tricolores have shown a fantastic spirit back then coming back from a two goal deficit to win the match at the end. It was the fantastic Spanish striker Fran Sol who bagged the match-winner. Sol has been on fire lately netting five in last three league ties, including a hat-trick in the recent 5-0 drubbing of 6table-toppers PSV.
The new manager Reinier Robbemond looks to have used a magic stick since he transformed the relegation strugglers into a side which nets five goals past the leading team of the competition. Overall, Willem II have scored ten goals in three gamed under his leadership. The visitors should be in position to keep their wonderful spell of form going on Friday evening when they are set to play the struggling Excelsior side.
The hosts will come into this off the back of a demolishing 5-0 loss to Feyenoord in the small Rotterdam derby. It was the third defeat in last four games for Kralingers. Furthermore, the team led by Mitchell van der Gaag is winless in last five home outings in Eredivisie. They’ve conceded two or more goals in three of last four games at Van Donge & De Roo Stadion.
