NEC Nijmegen vs Feyenoord
Date: Sunday, 16th October, 2016
Kick-off: 13:30 UK
Venue: Goffertstadion, Nijmegen.
NEC will have one hell of a task to back up the positive result and the victory from the last round’s match at Roda JC, as they are going to host the current leaders of the campaign who are yet to drop points in the new season of Eredvisie, after eight rounds of the competition. NEC had serious troubles with scoring since the very start of the season, as they could not find the way to the opponent’s net in four straight league matches, before the already mentioned win over Roda in the last round.
It is really hard to believe that the hosts will be able to score against Feyenoord, who have been showing tremendous defensive displays so far in the campaign. Former Arsenal and Barcelona left back, and the current Feyenoord manager, Giovanni Van Bronckhorst is literally living the dream on the bench on Rotterdam’s team, as he too eight straight victories in the domestic competition. The team did not concede a single goal in last three matches, including the 0 – 1 away win in the derby match at PSV in mid-September.
NEC vs Feyenoord: Head-to-Head Stats
NEC interestingly won the last home match against Feyenoord, in December last year, when Janio Bikel, Libombe and Santos produced a comeback from being a goal down in the final half hour of the match. The visitors have been generally much more successful, winning 29 out of 43 head to head encounters.
NEC vs Feyenoord: Prediction
The hosts just do not stand a chance against the current leaders who should easily keep up with the perfect start of the campaign and celebrate the ninth consecutive victory in the competition.
The away win is a banker, but we will try and catch even better odds and back both teams not to score a goal at 4/5 as our number one betting pick.
