Helmond Sport vs Excelsior Prediction
Both teams are in a bad run in the campaign lately. Helmond Sport has had a bad start to the season while Excelsior has encountered the dip in form only in their recent games. It has been nearly two months since Excelsior has found three points in any of the major contests.
Excelsior had their previous encounter at home against Breda. Both teams scored two goals each in the ninety minutes to share the spoils at Van Donge & De Roo Stadion. Meanwhile, Helmond will be hosting after a 2-1 loss on the road to the likes of FC Volendam in their previous clash.
The punters can neglect the home ground advantage for Helmond Sport in the match. The host does not seem to utilize it in their attempts at home. Kattenmeppers have recorded only two wins in their 12 league home appearances so far. Also, they are winless in the last seven games as the host.
Excelsior had a decent run in the league away games this season. They encountered a loss in their last trip only after six unbeaten away games in a row. Along with that, the Kralingers have lost only four of their 12 away fixtures in the campaign.
Based on their league away form, the punters will have more probability of returns with Excelsior. The visitor is likely to create more opportunities in the match despite being away from home. As such we can expect Excelsior to win in the high scoring affair.
