PEC Zwolle vs NEC Nijmegen Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

PEC Zwolle will look to build on their recent victory in the Eredivisie when they welcome NEC Nijmegen at the MACPARK Stadion on Friday evening. PEC Zwolle managed an impressive 2-3 victory on the road at Sparta Rotterdam last weekend thanks to three second-half goals from Queensy Menig, Nicolai Brock-Madsen and Erik Israelsson. On the other hand, NEC Nijmegen lost 1-2 at home at the hands of Go Ahead Eagles, with their consolation goal being scored by Jay-Roy Grot in the stoppage time. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT preview.

PEC Zwolle Preview

After a 1-2 home defeat at the hands of FC Twente towards the end of January, PEC Zwolle bounced back with a 2-3 away victory at Sparta Rotterdam at the weekend. Zwolle’s last seven games across all competitions have been entertaining affairs, as each of them ended with at least three goals scored. Their recent win over Sparta Rotterdam lifts them in 13th position in the Eredivisie table with 20 points under their belts after 21 rounds, just three points clear of the drop zone. Keeping the ball out of their own net has been Zwolle’s biggest problem throughout this Eredivisie campaign, as they hold the worst defensive record in the division with 42 goals conceded in 21 league outings. They also struggled going forward this season, having only scored 20 goals in 21 rounds. Queensy Menig has been Zwolle’s most dangerous player in front of goal so far this season, as he is currently leading the club’s goalscoring charts with 5 goals in his 18 league appearances. Their recent home form has been a complete mixed bag with four defeats, two draws and one win in their last seven home fixtures across all competitions. The good news is that PEC Zwolle are undefeated in the last five home meetings with NEC Nijmegen in all competitions, winning four and drawing once in this term.

NEC Nijmegen Preview

NEC Nijmegen, on the flip side, kicked off 2017 with back-to-back wins over Willem II and Roda JC Kerkrade, but succumbed to two consecutive defeats at the hands of Feyenoord and Go Ahead Eagles in their most recent two league outings. Despite the recent struggle, NEC still find themselves in a comfortable 10th place in the Eredivisie table, just seven points off the play-offs. Similar to their Friday’s opponents, NEC have also struggled to find the back of the net throughout the season, scoring just 22 goals in 21 league games. Jay-Roy Grot is leading the club’s goalscoring charts with 5 goals under his belt, while Dario Dumic and Kevin Mayi have bagged 8 goals and 5 assists between them. On the road, NEC Nijmegen have only won two of their last 15 games across all competitions, conceding at least two goals in eleven of these. In addition, NEC are winless in their last five visits to the MACPARK Stadion since a 0-4 win back in September 2012. Head-to-head, NEC are winless in the last three meetings with PEC Zwolle, including a 2-1 defeat in a friendly fixture in this early part of the new year.

Betting Predictions and Tips

Both teams have been alternating victories with defeats over the past few weeks, and both have conceded several goals in the process. I’m expecting goals in this one, but I’m also backing Zwolle to win. They have a decent head-to-head home record over NEC Nijmegen, winning four of the last five meetings.
