NAC Breda vs De Graafschap
2018-19 Dutch Eredivisie
Date: Saturday, 18 August 2018
Kick-off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: Rat Verlegh Stadion (Breda).
Breda hopes to pick up the first point in the new Eredivisie as they host newly promoted De Graafschap on Saturday. However, the new side grabbed unexpected victory over Feyenoord and will be high in confidence with that result.
Breda had a bad season in the Eredivisie last season and we’re heavily defeated in the opening day of this new season. They lost to AZ in the opening game and many are already expecting them to struggle this season. The damage was heavily done in the first half as they were 3 goals down at half time.
NAC Breda had only 34% overall possession and had 4 shots on target against AZ’s 14 shots.
Breda had a very poor pre-season and have now lost 5 games in a row but they hope on a home advantage against De Graafschap this weekend. They need to get good result from this game to avoid a poor start his season.
De Graafschap were huge underdogs last week against Feyenoord despite being at home. They took the lead in the 31st minute via Serrarens and they went on to win the game 2-0 with 40% of the possession and lesser shots on target.
This kind of positive start is what they need as a return to the top flight. De Graafschap now have it in the back of their mind that they can beat Breda as they beat Feyenoord.
