Top Picks and Best Predictions for Emmen vs Excelsior

There are not many teams who have the worst losing record than Excelsior, and with four straight losses, the Rotterdam team is in big trouble ahead of an important match against Emmen.

Emmen to Win

When there are a couple of teams that are equally as bad facing each other, it is not an easy choice to make when it comes to picking a winner. However, this Emmen vs Excelsior prediction is about the home team taking all three points. Excelsior has done well in the first part of the season, but since then things have taken a dramatic turn for the worse. Both teams are waiting to get a win for just over a month and a half, and Emmen looks a bit closer to that goal. They have drawn three from their last five matches while Excelsior lost four games in a row. The Rotterdam outfit took the win in their first meeting this season and overall won in four of their past five encounters.

Both Teams to Score – Yes

In the last five Emmen vs Excelsior games, three of them ended with both teams scoring a goal, and interestingly all three ended with the same 2-1 result. Also, it is worth noting that Excelsior took the three wins. Checking out their latest league form, Emmen had four BTTS games in their last five matches while Excelsior had only one, but suffered some tough losses in that period. Excelsior is also the worst away team in the league, but only on goal difference from Emmen, their next opponent. They are allowing three goals per game when playing as a guest team.

Preview, Team News, and Emmen vs Excelsior Lineups

Emmen

The home team will look to finally add a win to their total after going six games without one, and trying to give themselves another lifeline in securing their Eredivisie status. The probability of them doing so hasn't changed in a while with Emmen holding its position in the relegation zone. The hosts have Jeff Hardeveld and Maikel Kieftenbeld out with injuries, but there are also doubts about participation in this weekend's match for Lorenzo Burnet, Oussama Darfalou, Rui Mendes, Metehan Guclu, and Mart Lieder.

Provisional lineup: van der Hart, Veendorp, te Wierik, Vos, Dirksen, Bernadou, Vlak, ter Haar, Diemers, Antonisse, Zivkovic.

Excelsior

It seems that Excelsior has fallen off the cliff after losing six out of the last seven matches they played in Eredivisie. It has been a tough couple of months for the Rotterdam team who were playing good football earlier in the season. However, they have lost 16 times which is the highest number in the league. They are sharing it with Cambuur. Excelsior will be without Kik Pierie and Jacky Donkor for the match on Saturday.

Provisional lineup: van Gassel, Tjoe a On, Seymor, el Yaakoubi, Horemans, Goudmijn, Koopmeiners, Lamprou, Naujoks, Azarkan, Agrafiotis.

Player to Watch: Lucas Bernadou

The French defensive midfielder has played in 23 matches this season for Emmen scoring a couple of goals and leading the team in assists with three. It is hard to find someone who stands out when there are two teams with a suspect record involved, but Lucas Bernadou is worth mentioning.
