Excelsior vs Go Ahead Eagles Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Excelsior and Go Ahead Eagles will square off at the Stadion Woudestein on Sunday at lunchtime, with both teams looking to get back to winning ways in the Eredivisie. Excelsior lost 2-0 on the road at PSV Eindhoven last weekend, with Mitchell van der Gaag’s men conceding a goal in each half. Go Ahead Eagles were beaten 1-3 at home by AZ Alkmaar last time out, with Jarchino Antonia scoring their consolation goal. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT preview.

Excelsior Preview

Excelsior enter the fray on the back of a five-game winless streak in the Eredivisie, losing two and drawing three in the process. Sandwiched in-between these results, Excelsior managed to pick up a 1-3 win over Ajax in a friendly fixture a fortnight ago. Excelsior’s main issue over the past two months has been their sloppy defence, as they allowed at least two goals in each of their last seven games in the Eredivisie. This has been their biggest problem throughout this Eredivisie campaign, as they have one of the most leakiest defences in the division with 34 goals conceded in 18 league fixtures. The good news is that Excelsior looked slightly better on home soil recently as they are unbeaten in the last three league fixtures, scoring at least two goals in each of these. Furthermore, Excelsior picked up victories in their last two home meetings with Go Ahead Eagles in all competitions. Excelsior find themselves in 15th position in the standings with 16 points to their name after 18 rounds, just two points clear of the drop zone. Stanley Elbers has been Excelsior’s most dangerous player in front of goal so far this season, as the 24-year-old striker is currently leading the club’s goalscoring charts with 5 goals in his 16 league appearances.

Go Ahead Eagles Preview

On the contrary, Go Ahead Eagles have only won once in their last eleven games across all competitions, and are currently on a six-game winless streak in the Eredivisie. They are rock bottom of the league table with 12 points to their name after 18 rounds, just four points behind safety. The Eagles struggled in finding the back of the net throughout this Eredivisie campaign, as they only managed 15 goals in 18 league fixtures, which is one of the worst offensive records in the division. Jarchinio Antonia is Go Ahead Eagles’ scorer at the moment with 4 goals in his 13 appearances in the Eredivisie. Sander Duits and Sam Hendriks have also played a decent role in the Eagles’ performances so far this season, as the pair have bagged six goals between them. Their away form has also been an issue as the Eagles failed to win a single game from nine so far this season and only picked up 2 points in this term. Their sole competitive away win so far this season has been a 1-3 triumph at Dongen in the KNVB Beker Cup. The good news is that G.A Eagles have won the last two meetings with Excelsior in all competitions, keeping a clean sheet in each of these.
