Odds and Top Predictions for Excelsior vs Twente

Twente will be the favorite against one of the worst teams in the Eredivisie but will be weary about slipping up at a club that is fighting against relegation.

Twente to Win

The first Excelsior vs Twente prediction will get the nod from the visiting side. Twente is well versed in battling it out against teams from the lower part of the rankings, they defeated Excelsior in their first game of the season. The Rotterdam team has a better h2h record in the last five games winning twice while they drew on a couple of occasions as well. Twente hasn't been the best in away matches this season winning only three times in 13 matches they played while Excelsior's home form is a lot better with six wins and losses with one draw in between.

Over 2.5 Goals

Twente still has the best defense in the league, however, they did weaken in that department during the second part of the season. They had four games in a row with more than two goals scored while for the season they played in 13 over 2.5 goals matches. Excelsior had 15 of those games this term while in their last five matches, they went over the mark four times. When we look at the games they played against each other, they had three ‘over' matches from their last five encounters.

Team News, Preview, and Excelsior vs Twente Lineups

Excelsior

The two-week break came at the right time for Excelsior who are in the middle of a battle to stave off relegation. The Rotterdam team's form went downhill in the second part of the season, and before the season took another vacation due to international matches, Excelsior managed to beat Cambuur to get a positive mindset before the season enters its final stage. Adrian Fein, Vicente Besuijen, Maxime Awoudja, and Jacky Donkor are doubtful to play.

Provisional lineup: van Gassel, Zagre, el Yaakoubi, Nieuwpoort, Horemans, Goudmijn, Koomeiners, Lamprou, Baas, Azarkan, Agrafiotis.

Twente

The Enschede outfit had some tough losses in the past couple of months, but just before the international break, they scored a couple of victories to ease the tension in the lockerroom. They still have a shot at ending the season in the top three, and this is something that would thrill the fan base. There are some health concerns for Twente: Mees Hilgers, Manfred Ugalde, and Mathias Kjolo are missing via injuries, while Denilho Cleonise, Daan Rots, Michal Sadilek, and Wout Brama are doubtful.

Provisional lineup: Unnerstall, Smal, Propper, Pleguezuelo, Brenet, Salah-Eddine, Vlap, Zerrouki, van Wolfswinkel, Misidjan, Cerny.
