NEC Nijmegen vs Go Ahead Eagles
Netherlands – Eredivisie
Date: Saturday, 7 May 2022
Kick-off at 11:15 UK / 12:15 CET
Venue: Goffertstadion.

After losing the last 3 games in a row, NEC Nijmegen is hoping to turn the tables against the visiting Go Ahead Eagles. Both these mid-table sides will lock horns at Goffertstadion, this Saturday.

Go Ahead Eagles is at the 9th spot on the standing with 36 points from 31 games. They won 10 times in the league while drew on 6 and lost on 15 other occasions. The visitors are tally on points with Groningen but they have been denied the Conference League Play Offs due to their goal difference.

The visitors will be looking to improve as they suffered a 2-1 Eredivisie loss in their previous game against Vitesse. We have seen 3 consecutive defeats in their most recent games in the league. They have kept 3 clean sheets in the last 5 games, conceding 3 goals during this period.

On the other hand, NEC Nijmegen resides at the 11th position on the table with only 35 points. Of the 31 matches played, they won 9 times in the league while drew on 8 and lost on 14 other occasions. Their struggles at the defensive end of the pitch has also been another key factor as they have conceded 48 goals so far.

NEC will be looking to improve on their last outing here following a 1-0 league loss in their previous fixture against FC Utrecht. That loss was their third consecutive one. They have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 5 of their previous 6 games, letting in 9 goals during that time.

NEC vs Go Ahead Eagles Head-to-head (h2h)

  • Their last 5 h2h games saw the Eagles with 3 wins while Nijmegen won twice.
  • NEC won the reverse fixture by 2-0 on last December.
  • They last met 2 months back at the KNVB Beker where Go Ahead Eagles won by 2-0.

NEC vs Go Ahead Eagles Prediction

In their last 14 home games in Eredivisie, NEC have recorded only a single win. The hosts to improve their attack if they’re to get anything out of this game as they have not scored in the last 3 matches.

Meanwhile, Go Ahead Eagles have not beaten this foe when having played them away from home in the previous 4 matches in the league. They are having an unfortunate period, have won just 1 of their last 8 away league matches.

We feel that an away win or draw seems the safe option here as both sides are equally weak as of now.
