NAC Breda Preview

NAC Breda’s form in this early part of the 2017/18 competitive season has been terrible as they have only won two of their nine fixtures across all competitions. They did well to beat the reigning champions Feyenoord 0-2 away from home back in the middle of September, but they now enter the fray on the back of two consecutive 1-0 defeats at the hands of ADO Den Haag and Roda JC Kerkrade. This puts Breda in 14th in the Eredivisie table with seven points under their belts after eight rounds, just one point clear of the bottom three. Breda struggled in the final third recently, as their main striker Thierry Ambrose doesn’t score enough goals while Rai Vloet is more of a false nine forward than a creative midfielder. At home, Breda have only won one of their four league games so far this season, although they were unbeaten in two fixtures prior to their 0-1 loss against ADO Den Haag in their most recent home game. The positive thing is that NAC Breda have won four of their last five home meetings with PEC Zwolle across all competitions, scoring three goals in three of these. Rai Vloet has been the standout player for NAC Breda in this early part of the campaign, as he is currently the club’s goalscorer with three goals in his six league appearances.

NAC Breda Team News

Arno Verschueren, Chiro N’Toko, Olivier Rommens and Robbie Haemhouts are all doubts, but Thomas Agyepong is out through a hamstring injury.

PEC Zwolle Preview

On the other hand, PEC Zwolle had an excellent start to the season as they currently find themselves in 5th spot in the Eredivisie table tied on 15 points with the 4th-placed Vitesse, just one point behind the second-placed Ajax. Zwolle are undefeated in five games across all competitions at the moment in time, winning three and drawing two in the process. They managed a hard-fought 3-2 home win over FC Groningen prior to the International break and followed this up with a nil-nil away draw at Feyenoord last weekend. Away from home, PEC Zwolle are undefeated in three competitive fixtures, conceding just once in this term. Zwolle managed a decent tally of 13 goals in eight rounds so far this season, including five from their topscorer Youness Mokhtar. Piotr Parzyszek has also been in fine shape throughout this Eredivisie campaign, providing three assists for the team in seven league appearances. Head-to-head, PEC Zwolle have won two of their last three meetings with NAC Breda in the Eredivisie, scoring at least two goals in each of these. The negative fact is that Zwolle have only won once in their seven visits to the Rat Verlegh Stadion, while losing six.
