NEC Nijmegen vs Roda JC Kerkrade Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Roda JC Kerkrade will be aiming to put their Eredivisie campaign back on track when they travel to the Goffertstadion to take on NEC Nijmegen on Sunday at lunchtime. NEC Nijmegen managed a hard-fought 0-1 win on the road against Willem II last time out in the Eredivisie, with Jay-Roy Grot scoring the winner for Peter Hyballa’s side in the last 15 minutes of the game. On the contrary, Roda JC Kerkrade lost 0-2 at home at the hands of Feyenoord last weekend, conceding both goals in the second half. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT preview.

NEC Nijmegen Preview

NEC Nijmegen extended their unbeaten streak in the Eredivisie to three games last weekend thanks to a narrow 0-1 win on the road against Willem II. Prior to this victory, NEC suffered back-to-back defeats in two friendly fixtures against Sparta Rotterdam and PEC Zwolle during the winter break. NEC currently stand in a comfortable 10th place in the Eredivisie table with 22 points under their belts, just four points off the play-offs. Despite this good position in the standings, NEC have struggled at both ends of the field throughout the season. They hold one of the worst offensive records in the division with just 19 goals scored in 18 rounds, while they conceded 28 in this term. Dario Dumic and Jay-Roy Grot have been NEC’s most dangerous players in front of goal so far this season, as the pair bagged 8 goals and 2 assists between them. Ferdi Kadioglu has also played a decent role in NEC’s performances throughout this Eredivisie campaign, helping the team with 2 goals and 3 assists in his 11 league appearances. Nijmegen can count on their home form ahead of this tie, having won two and drawn two of their last four home fixtures in the Eredivisie.

Roda JC Kerkrade Preview

Roda JC Kerkrade, on the other hand, have been one of the most underperforming teams in the first part of the season, as they have only won once in their opening 18 league fixtures. Roda enter the fray on the back of a ten-game winless streak in all competitions, including a 0-2 home defeat against Feyenoord last time out. Seven of their last eight games in the Eredivisie have ended in draws, which makes them the division’s draw specialists with ten draws from their 18 league games this season. Scoring goals has been Roda’s biggest problem throughout this Eredivisie campaign as they hold the worst offensive record in the division with just 8 goals under their belts in 18 rounds. Adil Auassar has been Roda’s most influential player on the pitch so far this season, helping the team with 2 goals and one assist in his 18 league appearances. On the road, Roda are currently on a four-game winless streak in the Eredivisie, scoring just two goals in the process. Roda have only scored three goals in their last nine away competitive fixtures. The good news is that Roda picked up a 1-2 win in their most recent visit to the Goffertstadion.

Betting Predictions and Tips

NEC Nijmegen looked pretty solid in front of their own fans over the past three months, while Roda have only won once in their last nine away league fixtures. Furthermore, NEC have won two of their last three home meetings with Roda, scoring at least three goals in two of these. This having been said, I’m backing NEC to grab all three points in this one.
