NEC Nijmegen vs Almere City Lineups, Team News, and Match Preview

NEC Nijmegen

Even though they won only a couple of games this season, there are a lot of positives for NEC. Still, the team is ranked in the top ten of the Eredivisie, but the most important thing is that they score regularly. Although, defending could be better, scoring is something that the fans are happy about. Jasper Cillessen, Youri Baas, Bryann Pereira, Kas de Wit, Alexis Tibidi, and Elayis Tavsan are facing a fitness battle before this weekend's match.

Potential lineup: Roefs, Sandler, van Rooij, Nuytinck, Verdonk, Schone, Proper, Gonzalez, Mattsson, Hansen, Dost.

Almere City

There weren't big expectations for the recent second-division team when they were promoted to the Eredivisie for this season. However, with two wins in a row the atmosphere in the locker room is positive and the team is looking forward to another match. Alvaro Pena, Milan Corryn, and Faiz Mattoir are out through injury.

Potential lineup: Bakker, Floranus, Barbet, Soh, Akujobi, van Bruggen, Robinet, Resink, Koompeiners, Kitala, van La Parra.

Player to Watch: Bas Dost

The vastly experienced striker who is 34 years old, joined NEC Nijmegen a month and a half ago on a free transfer from Utrecht. He scored a couple of goals in six matches that he played starting three of them. Dost's knowledge of the game and all the big matches that he went through is something that is helping NEC this season.

Dost can be happy with the way his career developed from being in the Emmen's youth team until his transfer to Heerenveen. He also played in the Bundesliga for Wolfsburg and Eintracht Frankfurt while spending time in Portugal with Sporting and Belgium with Club Brugge. Dost scored 268 goals in 537 career matches.
