Excelsior vs Go Ahead Eagles Top Predictions and Best Odds

Two struggling teams are meeting in the first match of Eredivisie round 29 with important repercussions.

Under 2.5 Goals

Even though Excelsior is one of the teams with the most over 2.5 goals matches this season, the vast majority of those games were earned in defeat. For this Excelsior vs Go Ahead Eagles prediction, we are going in the other direction. Excelsior had two matches with fewer than three goals scored from their past five outings while the Eagles had the same number but those were played in the last two rounds of Eredivisie. For the season, the home team has 12 ‘under' matches and the Eagles went for 14. The key to this prediction is their h2h record, three out of their past five outings went under the mark.

Excelsior to Win

It is hard to draw a winner from a matchup of teams that are playing equally badly at the moment. Also, looking at the h2h record for Excelsior vs Go Ahead Eagles tie, there isn't much that separates the two teams. Both teams won twice in the last five matches and one game ended in a draw. Excelsior's home record this season is in reality pretty good with six wins and losses, while they also played in a couple of draws. The Eagles have one win from their past five away matches and three in total. The first match of the season between these teams ended with a 3-1 win for the Go Ahead Eagles.

Preview, Team News, and Excelsior vs Go Ahead Eagles Lineups

Excelsior

They held on against PSV for as long as they could but eventually went down in a 4-0 loss. This was their 18th loss of the season and the third out of the last five games. The team is now placed in the relegation zone, or rather in a position that would make them play additional games to stay in the Eredivisie against a selected team from the lower division. Marouan Azarkan and Vicente Besuijen are injured while Adrian Fein, Maxime Awoudja, and Jacky Donkor are doubtful.

Probable lineup: van Gassel, Horemans, Nieuwpoort, el Yaakoubi, Pierie, Zagre, Goudmijn, Koopmeiners, Baas, Driouech, Lamprou.

Go Ahead Eagles

The Eagles were also defeated last week, they lost to Vitesse and have only one win from their last five matches. They are, however, in a better position than their next opponent with a six-point cushion from the relegation zone. The Eagles have a problem defending their goal, but having said that, it is interesting that the only two games from the past six encounters when they didn't concede a goal were against Twente and Ajax which suggests that they can play better football when opposing top teams. Oliver Valaker Edvardsen and Gerrit Nauber are out through the end of April because of an injury.

Probable lineup: De Lange, Deijl, Amofa, Idzes, Fontan, Rommens, Llansana, Adekanye, Willumsson, Fernandes, Lidberg.
