NEC Nijmegen vs Helmond Sport
Dutch Eerste Divisie
Date: Friday, 14 February 2020
Kick-Off at 19:00 UK
Venue: Gofferstadion, Nijmegen
The agony and three-games winless streak was finally ended for NEC Nijmegen and their fans. The team had one of the best performances in the last couple of years on Monday night and demolished Telstar 7-1 on the road.
These three points allowed NEC to narrow the gap from playoff teams. Schedule is going in their favour too, bringing the weakest team in the league Helmond this Friday to Gofferstadion. Anything but a convincing home win would be a huge surprise here.
NEC Nijmegen vs Helmond Sport: Head-to-head
There were seven head to head duels between these two teams in the past and every single one ended BTTS. NEC are also very dominant in terms of victories 6-0.
The average number of goals scored in those clashes is almost 4.00 per duel.
NEC Nijmegen vs Helmond Sport: Prediction
Helmond are hammered to the bottom of the table after collecting only 16 points from 25 games. They also have the worst goal difference in Eerste Divisie of -31.
The last time this team achieved victory was all the way back in October 2019 against Dordrecht. Their current record on the road is one win, three draws and eight losses.
NEC are once again failing to fight for direct promotion. Inconsistency is the main issue this time. They have won only five out of 12 games at home turf.
We are expecting to see an early aggression from the hosts and 90 minutes of dominance. Going for NEC to win the game in Asian Handicap is going to be the primary betting tip at 1.61.
NEC to score Over 2.5 FT team goals is the secondary suggestion. Helmond conceded 12 goals in their last four away days.
