FC Volendam vs NEC Nijmegen Head-to-head (h2h)

  • Nijmegen won the last seven games in a row.
  • Volendam conceded twice or more in the previous six fixtures.

  • Disregarding a single encounter, the visitors hold a 100% winning record at this venue.

FC Volendam vs NEC Nijmegen Prediction

Volendam were on the road the last match-day but still managed to come out on top against Excelsior. The two goals in the first half had put the hosts under pressure, and though they hit one back late into the game, it was too little, too late.

Nijmegen meanwhile tried their best to defeat Jong Utrecht, but in the end, had to settle for a goalless draw. It might hurt that their home status did not amount to much.

Considering the incredible form Volendam have been on for quite some time, in addition to their home advantage, the chances look good for a win for the hosts. They have won their last four overall games and remained unbeaten in eight of their last nine at home. Importantly, they won their last five league fixtures on the trot.

On the other hand, their counterparts were winless in 12 of their previous 19 match-ups and were so in seven of their last ten on the road.

As such, expect Volendam to emerge victorious this Friday. But to be on the safe side, we will opt for the Double Chance.

Building on that note, take into account the 100% unbeaten record of Nijmegen against this opponent, and their seven-game winning run in h2h clashes. Also, examining their near-100% winning record in such battles at this venue, it’s extremely unlikely that the home team will keep a clean sheet.
