NEC Nijmegen vs Cambuur Best Bets and Predictions

The Nijmegen team is sitting comfortably in the middle of the table and will be aiming for another home win against the worst team in Eredivisie.

NEC Nijmegen to Win

It is hard to argue against this prediction. NEC has been a team with the most draw games this season standing at eleven, but against Cambuur, the club is counting on a win that would give them additional points advantage over teams that are nearby ranking-wise. NEC has been terrific at home this season losing only one game with two victories and seven draws. Cambuur is better as an away team compared to when they are playing at home winning a couple of games while losing only four. The Nijmegen outfit won their first match of the season by a single goal.

Under 2.5 Goals

These teams are top three in the league when it comes to under 2.5 goals matches. Both of them had 16 out of 20 games with fewer than three goals scored, and their only meeting this season had one goal. There were instances in the previous matches they played when both clubs scored plenty of goals, but it seems that this season they don't have the firepower at the forward position to do it again. It is also worth noting that both teams had four out of their last five league matches with fewer than three overall goals on the book.

Team News, Preview, and Possible Lineups

NEC Nijmegen

When we look at the way NEC plays football, it is obvious that their tactics revolve around keeping a clean sheet. When that doesn't occur, they make sure there is at least a goal in the back of their opponent's net. Their most common result this season was 1-1, and getting one draw after another is something that the team holds in high regard. However, for this particular match, there are several injury worries for coach Rogier Meijer. Robin Roefs, Mathias De Wolf, Jordy Bruijn, and Magnus Mattson are going to be potentially unavailable.

Possible lineup: Cillessen, van Rooij, Marquez, Kramer, El Karouani, Schone, Proper, Tavsan, Tannane, Cissoko, Dimata.

Cambuur

There is not much left in the tank for Cambuur in their fight to survive the season in Eredivisie and to make sure they are present next season as well. They are on the bottom side for a reason, and being inconsistent has been a major problem for the team. Strangely, they are not that negative in away games, but playing at home, it seems, is something that they don't feel comfortable doing. Calvin Mac Intosh and Jamie Jacobs are players that are going to miss the match through injuries.

Possible lineup: Ruiter, Tol, Smand, Bergsma, Bangura, Wermeskerken, Hoedemakers, van der Water, van Kaam, Breij, Foor.
