Feyenoord vs NEC Nijmegen Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Feyenoord will be aiming to extend their lead at the top of the Eredivisie table when they welcome NEC Nijmegen at the Stadion Feijenoord on Sunday afternoon. Feyenoord picked up a narrow 1-0 home win over Willem II last weekend, with Jens Toornstra scoring the winner for Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s side. NEC Nijmegen also registered a 2-0 home victory over Roda JC Kerkrade last time out thanks to a brace from Gregor Breinburg. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT preview.

Feyenoord Preview

Feyenoord did well to beat Willem II 1-0 last time out to extend their winning streak in the Eredivisie to five games. Feyenoord are currently on a seven-game unbeaten streak in the Eredivisie. However, the Rotterdammers head into this clash low on confidence following their 2-0 defeat against Vitesse in their KNVB Beker midweek fixture. The good news is that Feyenoord sit on top of the Eredivisie table at the moment, five points clear off the second-placed Ajax. The Rotterdammers looked incredibly strong going forward throughout this Eredivisie campaign, as they managed an amazing tally of 50 goals in 19 league fixtures. Feyenoord also looked very well-organized at the other end of the pitch, as they hold the second best defensive record in the division with just 12 goals conceded in 19 rounds. Nicolai Jorgensen is leading the club’s goalscoring charts with 12 goals and eight assists in his 12 league appearances. Dirk Kuyt, Eljero Elia and Jens Toornstra have also enjoyed a decent Eredivisie campaign, as the attacking trio bagged 19 goals and 15 assists between them. Feyenoord can count on their home form ahead of this clash, as they are the only unbeaten home side in the division, winning two and drawing two of their ten home league fixtures.

NEC Nijmegen Preview

NEC Nijmegen have also enjoyed a good run of form recently, winning three and drawing once in their last four games in the Eredivisie. They kick off the new year with back-to-back Eredivisie victories over Willem II and Roda JC Kerkrade, keeping a clean sheet in each of these. NEC Nijmegen find themselves in a comfortable 9th position in the standings with 25 points to their name after 19 rounds, just two points off the 7th-placed Vitesse. Scoring goals has been NEC’s main issue throughout this Eredivisie campaign, as they hold the worst offensive record in top ten with just 21 goals scored in 19 rounds. Dario Dumic, Jay-Roy Grot and Kevin Mayi have been NEC’s most influential players on the pitch so far this season, as they bagged 12 goals and five assists between them. On the road, NEC Nijmegen were on a five-game winless streak across all competitions prior to their 0-1 win at Willem II in their most recent league trip. The bad news is that NEC have lost the last two meetings with Feyenoord in the Eredivisie since a 3-1 home win back in the middle of December 2015. Also, NEC suffered back-to-back defeats in their last three visits to the Stadion Feijenoord.

Betting Predictions and Tips

Feyenoord should have no problems in picking up all three points in this one, as they are the best home side in the division and haven’t lost a single game in front of their own fans so far this season. Furthermore, Feyenoord picked up wins in their last three home meetings with NEC Nijmegen in the Eredivisie, scoring 11 goals and conceding just two in the process.
