Top Bets and Predictions for Excelsior vs Cambuur

Some teams have been doing a lot better in the second part of the Eredivisie season, but Excelsior doesn't belong in that category.

Draw

The situation at Excelsior is crumbling. They did a good job of keeping themselves in the middle of the rankings, but after the winter break, things have fallen off the wagon. The team has lost seven of the last eight matches with a draw between all those defeats. This Excelsior vs Cambuur prediction is about two teams in the relegation zone who are struggling to make ends meet in the most important part of the year. Excelsior had only two draw games this season, the lowest mark in the league while Cambuur had four. However, we are going for them splitting the points this time around as they are both struggling to score goals. Their first meeting of the season ended with a 2-0 Excelsior win.

Excelsior vs Cambuur Lineups, Team Information, and Preview

Excelsior

There is a massive crisis at Excelsior, and it seems that the team doesn't have a way to pull themselves out of the trouble. Coach Marinus Dijkhuizen has been at the helm since the summer of 2020, and these are some of the hardest times he has endured at the club. They had a positive season in the first part of the year, but somehow things went in a different direction since the team came back from the winter break. To make things worse, the injury list is quite long: Marouan Azarkan, Mike van Duinen, Adrian Fein, Vicente Besuijen, Maxime Awoudja, Kik Pierie, and Jacky Donkor are all carrying some form of an injury.

Possible lineup: van Gassel, Horemans, Nieuwpoort, el Yaakoubi, Tjoe a On, Koopmeiners, Goudmijn, Lamprou, Naujoks, Driouech, Agrafiotis.

Cambuur

The visiting team knows all too much about the troubling times, they have been enduring them for the entire season. Cambuur is the last in the standings, but like every team in the relegation zone, they still have a chance of rescuing themselves to live another day among the Eredivisie elite. Michael Breij, Ben Rienstra, Marco Tol, and Maxim Gullit are out through injury.

Possible lineup: Ruiter, Schmidt, Bergsma, Smand, Bangura, van Kaam, Paulissen, Foor, Balk, Johnsen, Mahi.
