NEC Nijmegen vs NAC Breda: Prediction
The hosts have scored 43 goals and are in good scoring form in home matches. Both sides found the net in 7 previous meetings. The hosts have never failed to score in their 10 recent fixtures expect in the loss to Cambuur. Breda has also scored plenty in three recent competitive fixtures on the road. They are scoring an average of 1.77 goals per match this league season. This is more than enough to say that both teams will score in this game as well.
Breda has won their last 2 league outings against Jong Ajax in the league and Alkmaar in the KNV Cup. Also, they lost only once in their last 7 matches in all competitions. The h2h stats also give them the advantage over a home side that is also in form. So I am backing another away win for Breda at this ground.
