Volendam vs Excelsior Lineups, Team News, and Match Information

Volendam

The home side earned only four points in eight matches this season which puts them in the last place in the standings. However, Volendam is only three points away from safety as we approach the end of the first third of the campaign. There are some health concerns ahead of this match for the host team: Joey Antonioli, Lequincio Zeefuik, Brian Plat, Luke Le Roux, and Koen Blommestijn are doubtful to play.

Possible lineup: Backhaus, Cox, Benamar, Mbuyamba, Payne, Mirani, Kuol, Twigt, de Haan, Ould-Chikh, Muhren.

Excelsior

The Rotterdam team is one of the teams that have surprised the league this season, still holding on to the top eight spot, Excelsior lost to Zwolle at home this past weekend. Raphael Eyongo, Mike van Duinen, Lennard Hartjes, Kik Pierie, and Jacky Donkor are injured.

Possible lineup: van Gassel, Zagre, Nieuwpoort, Widell, Horemans, el Yaakoubi, Baas, Sandra, Driouech, Agrafiotis, Sanches Fernandes.

Player to Watch: Robert Muhren

There aren't many positives that can be taken from Volendam's season, but Robert Muhren is trying to be one. The 34-year-old striker leads the team once again as the top scorer with three goals in six matches, he started all about two games this campaign.

Considering that Volendam scored only eight goals thus far, Muhren's tally is almost half of that number. Muhren is in his third season at the club after joining from the Belgian side Zulte Waregem. However, he started his career at Volendam 17 years ago for the U17 team and made it a full circle by coming back to the club.
