NEC Nijmegen vs NAC Breda Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

NAC Breda will be aiming to make their return in the Eredivisie after three years when they travel to the Goffertstadion to take on NEC Nijmegen on Sunday afternoon for the second leg of their Eredivisie promotion/relegation play-offs final tie. NAC Breda won 1-0 at home over NEC Nijmegen in midweek thanks to a late goal from Cyriel Dessers. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT preview.

Betting Predictions and Tips

NEC Nijmegen are favourites to win here, but I’m expecting NAC Breda to make another good game. Breda are the in-form team here and I think they are more than capable to secure at least a draw. I’m not fancying goals as the most recent six meetings between these two sides have seen few than two goals scored.

NEC Nijmegen Preview

NEC Nijmegen’s status in the Eredivisie is hanging by a thread after they lost 1-0 on the road at NAC Breda in midweek. Prior to this result, NEC Nijmegen were on a four-game winning streak across all competitions, including a 4-1 aggregate victory over FC Emmen in the playoff Semifinals. NEC will be looking to overturn the one-goal deficit, but their home form this year hasn’t been that good. They have only won four of their nine competitive home fixtures while losing five in the process. The good news is that NEC have won their most recent two home fixtures, conceding just once in this term. The negative fact is that NEC are winless in their last four home meetings with NAC Breda across all competitions, losing one and drawing three in the process. Head-to-head, NEC are without a victory in their last nine games against NAC Breda since a 4-2 home triumph back in February 2010. NEC Nijmegen’s main reason for their disappointing Eredivisie campaign this season has been their inefficient attack as they only scored 32 goals in 34 league outings. Their topscorer throughout the regular season was Jay-Roy Grot with five goals under his belt in his 22 league appearances.

NEC Nijmegen Team News

Reagy Ofosu and Robin Buwalda are both doubts ahead of this clash.

NAC Breda Preview

On the contrary, NAC Breda’s form over the past month has been near impeccable as they have won four of their last five games across all competitions. The most impressive fact is that Breda have kept a clean sheet in four of their last five competitive fixtures. Away from home, Breda have only lost once in their last seven games across all competitions while conceding just five goals. The good news is that NAC Breda are undefeated in their last four visits to the Goffertstadion, scoring two goals in two of these. NAC Breda looked decent going forward throughout their Eerste Divisie regular season, scoring 65 goals in 38 rounds. Cyriel Dessers is definitely the player to watch here as he was the club’s top scorer during the regular campaign with 22 goals under his belt and he already managed to find the back of the net three times in the playoffs. Breda should feel confident ahead of this fixture as they are undefeated in the last nine meetings with NEC Nijmegen, scoring at least once in each of these.

There are no fresh injury concerns for Breda ahead of this trip.
