Free Predictions for NEC vs Groningen

NEC will be hoping to secure their first home win of the new Eredivisie season and move above their guests Groningen in the process. The visitors currently have 4pts on the board from their opening three matches and recorded a memorable 4-3 victory against NEC when the pair last locked horns back in March.

Over 2.5 Goals

We're predicting goals in this game between two teams that like to attack and have only managed one clean sheet in their opening five league games combined this season. Over 2.5 goals have been scored in each of the last four meetings between these two clubs, and we're expecting more of the same on Friday night. At least three goals have also been scored in four of the host's last five outings as well as in five of Groningen's last six matches in all competitions, adding further weight to our prediction.

Both Teams to Score

There is a good chance that we will be treated to goals at both ends of the pitch when NEC host Groningen as that is how four of the last six meetings between the two clubs have finished. Both teams have also scored in two of NEC's last three outings and in five of Groningen's last six fixtures, so you can see just why we're not expecting either side to keep their clean sheet intact on Friday.

A close and competitive 90-minutes on the cards

NEC made the trip to Volendam last time out where despite going a goal down in the 11th-minute, the visitors ran out convincing winners. Tavsan equalised for NEC in the 17th-minute and just 2-minutes later, Tannane scored to put the away side 2-1 up. In the second half, Duelund made sure of the points in the 76th-minute when he made it 3-1 and Bruijn put the icing on the cake in the last minute of the game by scoring a fourth for NEC.

NEC Predicted Lineup – Cillessen, Márquez, Kramer, El Karouani, van Rooij, Schöne, Duelund, Proper, Tannane, Marques & Tavşan

Groningen were the clear favourites to win at home against Go Ahead Eagles last weekend but despite taking the lead after just 3-minutes when de Lange scored an own goal, the hosts only just got across the line. No further goals were scored during the match as Go Ahead Eagles defended manfully and the Groningen attack were lucky to have been let off by that early goals. Still, Groningen did enough to win the game and move onto 4pts.

Groningen Predicted Lineup – Verrips, te Wierik, Kasanwirjo, Balker, Määttä, Pelupessy, Lundqvist, Duarte, Ngonge, Strand Larsen & Oratmangoen

Team News

NEC: Magnus Mattsson and Mathias De Wolf are both doubts for the hosts due to injury.
