Go Ahead Eagles vs Excelsior
Date: Saturday, 29 October 2022
Kick-off at 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: De Adelaarshorst.
Excelsior finally ended their four-game winless run as they defeated AZ who are one of the best teams in the league. They will now hope for the same result against Go Ahead Eagles.
Before the victory against AZ Alkmaar the host were stunned when Ajax demolished them in a 7-1 thriller. What made it interesting is Ajax registered a record twenty shots on goal. This game raised many questions towards Marinus Dijkhuizen’s future.
All the concerned doubts were cleared as his team defeated AZ Alkmaar in the very next game by 2-1. Two first half goals from Siebe Horemans and Marouan Azarkan helped the team win all three points.
Go Ahead Eagles could not get past NEC last time as the game ended in a 3-3 draw. This is their fourth draw in a row. No other team is seeing such a form this season. They began this month by holding Ajax in a 1-1 draw.
René Hake’s team is now just two points above the relegation zone. Do note that they still maintain a good form at home.
