Go Ahead Eagles - NEC

Netherlands Eredivisie - De Adelaarshorst

These two sides are separated by just one place and one point in the Eredivisie, so expect a tight contest on Sunday. They have already met twice this season, once in the league and once in the cup, with NEC Nijmegen unbeaten across those fixtures, which should give them an edge.

Go Ahead Eagles vs NEC Nijmegen prediction – Betting tips & odds

Hot tip – Magnus Mattsson to score anytime

  • Magnus Mattsson has four goals in five Eredivisie matches
  • Mattsson has experience scoring against Go Ahead Eagles having done so in 2022

Mattsson has scored two goals in his last three away league games for NEC Nijmegen. So, he certainly doesn't flinch when playing in hostile atmospheres, especially when he's going up against a team with only three home clean sheets all campaign.

Win probability

Home: 11/10 (2.1) – 47.6%

Draw: 5/2 (3.5) – 28.6%

Away: 9/4 (3.25) – 30.8%

With how close this match will be, we're going to advise the draw/draw market to be considered with odds of around 5/1 (6.0) and a rather expected low 16.7% chance of landing, and we do expect this to be a score draw and not 0-0.

Elsewhere, we believe that backing the in-form team when it comes to this fixture is smart. Therefore, opting for NEC Nijmegen and Both Teams to Score would give out 4/1 (5.0) odds and the probability figures suggest there is around a 20% chance of this outcome happening.

Player to watch – Magnus Mattsson

The Danish forward has been in scintillating form this season with 14 goal involvements, which is already far more than he achieved in the whole of last season.

Magnus Mattsson managed just six goal involvements (four goals and two assists) so he's settled in and is a huge reason why NEC have an outside chance of Europe this campaign.
