NEC Nijmegen vs Top Oss: Prediction

The visitors after that defeat to Den Bosch doesn’t look convincing enough to beat their hosts for Friday. They have already played with teams which are below them on the table and played out some draws which could have been won.

They have problem in goal scoring as the forwards have not risen to form. Of the 11 goals they have scored 6 have been from the boots of Dogan. Him and his midfield partner Smeets have rescued them in many a match.

The home side are high on confidence after the recent away win. They are the possible winners in this matchup.
