NAC Breda vs Emmen Predictions & Match Preview

NAC Breda vs Emmen
Netherlands – Eredivisie
Date: Friday, 12th April 2019
Kick-off at 19.00 UK/ 20.00 CET
Venue: Rat Verlegh Stadion (Breda).

Breda is by far the worst team in the group. They are dead-last in the table and has posted just 21 points from their 29 games. With 15 points left to play for, they face a race against time to overcome a deficit of seven points. Coincidentally, they are trying to take the spot that Emmen is currently enjoying since they are the last safe team in the table as of now.

In that sense, we have a virtual final on the cards. Since Emmen is taking on a direct competitor as far as their relegation fight is concerned, a win will be worth manifold. As such, the team should go after it, for the sake of their future in the league.

NAC Breda vs Emmen Prediction

Breda is easily the worst team in the competition, and for Emmen, who is trying to put some distance from the closing-in relegation line, there won’t be a better opportunity to post some points on the board. Emmen had won the reverse fixture and has returned two wins and a draw from the last four h2h meetings.

Also, Breda was winless in 11 of their last 12 games, and in their last five at home. On the other hand, Emmen recorded a morale-boosting win against Heerenveen, who are trying to get placed in the playoffs. There’s little chance that Emmen will lose this tie.

Another angle remains to be considered though. Breda is desperate and at home. They will put forth a fight, as their future hangs in the line. Importantly, only one h2h game at this venue has ever ended without goals from either side, while Breda found the back of the net in every single home-meeting against Emmen. The BTTS would be a good pick for this fixture.
