FC Emmen vs Excelsior
Netherlands – Eredivisie
Date: Sunday, 25 November 2018
Kick-off at 11.15 UK/ 12.15 CET
Venue: De Oude Meerdijk (Emmen).
FC Emmen hosts Excelsior at the De Oude this Sunday as part of their 13th round fixtures of the Dutch Eredivisie. Both teams are representatives of the lower tier of the league table.
Emmen properly utilized their home game against the weakest side in the division, Breda, last weekend. FC Emmen kept a clean sheet and scored two goals past the clueless defense of the visitors. The home side’s only regret might be that they failed to score more goals, but an easy three points is always reason to cheer up.
Excelsior was humiliated at home last weekend by Ajax. Despite being on the road, and with several of their key players rested, no one really expected this many goals to be scored against the hosts. But Ajax put seven goals past the home backline. Excelsior was able to pull a lone goal back.

Excelsior is struggling really hard in the last few weeks, and particularly on the road. They have conceded eight goals in their last three away matches. In their last three matches overall, they have conceded a total of 15 goals.
Emmen has conceded in 16 of their last 17 matches. Placing a bet on Both Teams to Score is a reasonable choice. Both teams are out-of-form at their backs, and despite Emmen holding the advantage, Excelsior will get on the scoresheet.
