On the flip side, NEC Nijmegen resides at the 9th position on the table with 31 points. Of the 24matches played, they won on 8 games while drawing on 7 and losing on 9 other occasions.

The hosts had a 1-4 Eredivisie loss in their last game against Vitesse. It’s been a rare occasion in recent games where they haven’t conceded. The reality is that NEC have been scored against in 5 of their previous 6 games, giving up 12 goals along the way.
