Roda vs Excelsior Prediction

Roda had taken on the Eagles the previous match-day and looked set to record the victory. But, their one-goal lead was cut short with the equalizer in the 75th minute, which then was held till the end.

Meanwhile, Excelsior was right away put under pressure against Volendam, the prior game week. After conceding two early goals, the team never had a chance to make a comeback.

This Friday, the struggles of Excelsior on the road will come greatly into play. They are winless in their last seven such games and failed to score in three of their previous four. The team also conceded twice or more in five of their preceding seven such match-ups, and in fact, this whole season, they have delivered a single win on the road.

On the other hand, Roda have lost just once in their previous ten overall match-days and won two of their last two home games by scoring four or more goals. In addition, they have never failed to find the back of the net at home this campaign.

Finally, as mentioned above, Excelsior have suffered for a long time in h2h clashes, and especially so at this venue.

Considering all these factors together, Roda seems to be the favorite to post the win this match-day.
