Nijmegen vs Roda Prediction & Match Preview

NEC Nijmegen vs Roda JC Kerkrade
Dutch Eerste Divisie
Date: Friday, 20 November 2020
Kick-off 17:45 UK/ 18:45 CET
Venue: Goffertstadion (Nijmegen).

Nijmegen has been consistent at home since the start of last season and they are without a doubt firm favorites to defeat Roda Kerkrade in Friday’s Eerste Divisie clash.

The team from Nijmegen drew Helmond Sport 2-2 in their last match, but remained unbeaten in their last 6 league games with 4 wins and 2 draws.

Meantime, Roda made home advantage count and got past MVV Maastricht 2-0 to register their first league win since September.

Also, the visitors are winless in their last 5 away games and conceded 14 goals in the process and they are rightly priced as huge underdogs by the bookies at 3.80 odd.

Nijmegen vs Roda Head-to-head

The last 5 h2h meetings between the sides ended in Nijmegen wins.

They have been dominant at home as well and the lates two is won here on 1-0 and 2-0 scoreline.

Nijmegen vs Roda Prediction

As mentioned at the start, Nijmegen are a tough nut to crack at home and lost just 3 of their last 18 home games in the Eerste Divisie. They were among the front runners to win back promotion if the league was not cancelled due to covid-19 last season.

Roda are a decent team, but positive performances this far in the current campaign came at their own backyard and I do not see them upsetting the odds at the Goffertstadion.

Thus, home win priced at 1.85 is my top recommendation for this Dutch Eerste Divisie fixture, meantime over 2.5 goals can be taken as an alternative with 4 of Nijmegen’s 5 home games and all of Roda’s 6 away games this season recording the same.
