Tip Reasoning

  • G.A. Eagles have not kept three consecutive clean sheets since a run ending in March.
  • Both teams scored in 14 of the last 15 H2Hs.
  • Only Ajax have kept NEC from scoring away from home this season.

Exciting encounter expected between promoted sides

Following a confidence-boosting victory in the KNVB Beker last time out, Go Ahead Eagles look to move on up the table ahead of their Christmas break. The hosts may feel confident ahead of this one as they welcome a fellow promoted side to Deventer, one who they beat 2-1 in this fixture in last season’s Eerste Divisie.

However, this will be no walk in the park for the hosts – G.A. Eagles only kept the current bottom-two sides from scoring in their home league games this season, suggesting that the Eagles’ back line will be tested here.

NEC to put in a strong showing

Rogier Meijer’s men were mere minutes away from taking a point from title-chasing PSV last time out in the league before falling to a 2-1 defeat. They got back on the winning trail in the cup following that result, just the tonic to boost confidence ahead of this trip.

Damningly, NEC took a lead in stages of each of their last five league games, though they failed to win all of them (D2, L3). In fact, Nijmegen failed to win a joint-league high three games after leading at half-time (W3, D1, L2); suggesting this could be another end-to-end affair.

Considering the high-octane results of both sides, backing both teams to score in this game looks like the smart play. I predict that the G.A. Eagles will just about edge out an exciting encounter and perhaps even come from behind for a 2-1 victory.
