Holland Eredivisie - NEC Nijmegen vs Feyenoord Preview


The meeting at Goffertstadion on Sunday will see hosts NEC take to the field against Feyenoord.

NEC Nijmegen
NEC will be looking for a repeat result of the 1-2 KNVB Beker victory over FC Groningen. Their most recent results really do illustrate the point that much respect should be given to the NEC defence. NEC have been stingy, seeing the total number of goals that have gone in at their end during their last 6 matches standing at 4.

Since suffering a loss in their previous game against Vitesse in Eredivisie competition, Feyenoord and their travelling fans will hope for a better result here. Looking at their form, and Feyenoord have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 games, seeing opposing sides hit 7 goals overall. At the back, Feyenoord have been far from perfect. With no two games being the same, we’ll just have to find out whether that trend might be sustained in this match. Heading into this contest, Feyenoord are unbeaten in their previous 5 league matches away from home.

In our opinion, NEC should be able to score against this Feyenoord lineup, although one goal is unlikely to prevent defeat. Our selection here is for a very close game with a 1-2 winning margin for Feyenoord by the conclusion of the game. Let’s see what eventuates.
