Tip Reasoning

Defeat for Excelsior last weekend saw them slip into the relegation zone, but a victory on Sunday and they would certainly move out of the bottom three and could even move to as high as twelfth. Fellow relegation battlers Emmen provide the opposition for Excelsior on Sunday and it was their win over Den Haag that saw Excelsior enter the drop zone. Their is plenty to play for in this relegation six-pointer and we’re expecting a very competitive match.

Greek striker Lamprou scored twice as Excelsior were hammered 4-1 away at Fortuna Sittard on Sunday and at -23 Excelsior now have the third worst goal difference in the Eredivisie, fitting for a side occupying third from bottom spot in the table. Emmen almost through away two points at home to Den Haag last weekend after having lead at the break 2-0 they found themselves back on level terms in the seventy-seventh minute, but Jansen saved their blushes with the third goal in a 3-2 win two minutes from time. Emmen’s goal difference is better than their hosts, but its still makes for disappointing reading at -20.

With the amount of goals these two teams regularly let in it seems obvious to back both teams to score in Sunday’s encounter, especially as their recent head to heads and their results going into the weekends action all point towards goals at both ens of the pitch and a good chance of a home win. Both teams have scored in five of the last seven meetings with Excelsior winning three of those encounters, including November’s reverse fixture. Both teams have scored in four of Excelsior’s and four of Emmen’s last six matches, proving that while both teams have been finding the back of the net regularly they don’t keep many clean sheets. Five of the last seven meetings between the pair have also produced over 2.5 goals, and that’s certainly worth a bet if you can’t decide which way this game is going to go.

Messaoud top scores for Excelsior with seven league goals to his name, while teammate Bruins has chipped in with five goals from midfield. Jansen leads the way in front of goal for Excelsior with five goals in the Eredivisie, but their are doubts over his fitness and that could prove a huge blow for the visitors this weekend. We’re confident that Excelsior will win and both teams will score on Sunday, backing a final scoreline of two goals to one. The hosts have won their last two at home against Feyenoord and De Graafschap scoring twice on each occasions, while lost their last away game 5-0 against in form AZ Alkmaar.
