NEC Nijmegen vs Volendam Lineups, Preview, and Team Information

NEC Nijmegen

Last season, NEC was the team with the most draws in the Eredivisie. It didn't start that way this campaign, but slowly the Nijmegen outfit is starting to get similar results. They have played two straight draws and that makes three for the season. Bas Dost, Koki Ogawa, Philippe Sandler, Brayann Pereira, Alexis Tibidi, and Kas de Wit have health issues. Bart van Rooij is suspended.

Provisional lineup: Roefs, Verdonk, van Wermeskerken, Nuytinck, Ross, Schone, Proper, Hansen, Mattsson, Larsen, Gonzalez.

Volendam

The expectation for the guest team is fighting to stave off relegation, they are in a similar situation this season. With one of the youngest squads in the Eredivisie, it is hard to expect otherwise. Joey Antonioli, Brian Plat, Luke Le Roux, Robin Maulun, and Koen Blommestijn are missing.

Provisional lineup: Backhaus, Cox, Flint, Benamar, Buur, Mirani, Twigt, de Haan, Muhren, Kuol, Ould-Chikh.

Player to Watch: Magnus Mattsson

With so many injury issues hurting the Nijmegen team, Magnus Mattsson will have his work cut out in the next few games as the club's main attacking option. The Denmark international is not a classic striker, rather, he plays on the left wing, however, that didn't stop him from becoming the team's best scorer with five goals while having made nine appearances. He added a couple of assists to his record. He has been on the field for every second of each match NEC has played.

This is Mattsson's third season at NEC Nijmegen after joining the squad from Silkeborg two years ago. He has been developing at the Danish club since 2016 and moved through all the youth teams.
