Mid-table rivals RKC Waalwijk and NEC Nijmegen will lock horns in the 26th round of Eredivisie on Saturday evening at Mandemakers Stadion.

There is only a single point separating the two teams after 25 matches. Both teams still have European ambitions thanks to their strong campaigns so far in the season.

This particularly works for RKC Waalwijk who are just six points shy of Utrecht in the seventh position and also have a game in hand on them.

Waalwijk ended a two-win run with a 0-1 home loss to PSV Eindhoven in their previous game played two weeks ago.

The team led by Joseph Oosting were not in action last weekend as their clash against Go Ahead Eagles got postponed.

RKC still own a strong home record with 6 wins, 3 draws, and just 3 defeats in 12 league outings at Mandemakers Stadion this term. Can they return to winning ways on Saturday against NEC?

The visitors failed to keep an early two-goal advantage in the last weekend’s match against Utrecht as they eventually had to settle for a 2-2 stalemate at their Goffertstadion.

Rogier Meijer’s men have claimed just one point in the last two league games but it is worth noting they had earlier picked up successive 3-0 wins over relegation strugglers Volendam and Excelsior.
