Emmen vs NEC Nijmegen Top Predictions and Best Odds

Emmen is looking to draw some inspiration and earn a big win that would allow them to move just a fraction from the relegation zone.

Draw

When it comes to the visiting team, and regarding this Emmen vs NEC Nijmegen prediction, you can't go wrong if you choose a draw match. NEC likes to play a closed game during their away matches, we can see that fact with their goal difference of 12-12 and the four draw matches that they have played. Emmen is no stranger to split games either, they have a league record eight draw matches at home. On the counter side of this pick, in their last ten h2h matches, there was only one draw, and that happened six years ago. Since then, they have played six matches and each one had a winner with both teams winning three times.

Over 2.5 Goals

These teams are two of the best under 2.5 goals teams this season, but in this case for the Emmen vs NEC Nijmegen match that will be played on Sunday, we are going in the other direction with our pick. The reason is based on their current form, but also on the way they play when facing each other. The home team had three out of the last five encounters with at least three goals scored while NEC had four matches with over 2.5 goals from the same number of games. NEC is also on a three-match streak of ‘over' matches. For the season, Emmen had 13 matches with more than two goals in the back of the net, and Nijmegen's team record is at ten, the lowest mark in Eredivisie.

Preview, Team News, and Emmen vs NEC Nijmegen Lineups

Emmen

There is a crowded field in the relegation zone of the Eredivisie with three teams at 24 points fighting to avoid having to play a relegation playoff. Emmen is, for now, outside that position because of goal difference, but that can change rather quickly. The home team has some injury concerns for the match: Lucas Bernadou, Jari Vlak, and Jeff Hardeveld are injured while Rui Mendes, Metehan Guclu, Maikel Kieftenbeld, and Mart Lieder are doubtful.

Potential lineup: van der Hart, te Wierik, Araujo, Veldmate, Burnet, El Messaoudi, Veendorp, Romeny, Diemers, Antonisse, Zivkovic.

NEC Nijmegen

If anything is certain about this NEC Nijmegen team it is the possibility that there will be a draw match. They have the most split games in the league and by a large margin, and that way of setting their tactics proved to be a valuable asset. NEC is sitting comfortably at the tenth spot in the league. Calvin Verdonk, Robin Roefs, and Mathias De Wolf are doubtful to play while Ivan Marquez Alvarez is missing through suspension.

Potential lineup: Cillessen, El Karouani, Sandler, Kramer, van Rooij, Proper, Schone, Mattson, Tannane, Tavsan, Dimata.
