Utrecht vs NEC: Predictions & Odds

Both of these teams have made average starts to the new season and just 1pt and two places separate them in the Eredivisie table. Utrecht are the favourites to secure all 3pts with the bookmakers but NEC have proven themselves to be hard to beat in recent weeks.

Draw

Utrecht have had the better of their recent encounters with NEC but both teams have started this season in a similar vein of form and we're backing the two clubs to play out a draw on Friday. Utrecht have only won one of their last three home games in the Eredivisie and one of those matches, against Cambuur, ended in a draw. NEC have drawn each of their last four matches in the league, two of which came away from home against AZ and Heerenveen.

Under 2.5 Goals

Three of the last six league meetings between these two teams have produced under 2.5 goals and we're expecting another low-scoring affair on Friday. Three of Utrecht's and five of NEC's last six outings in the Eredivisie have witnessed fewer than three goals scored, adding further weight to our second prediction for Friday's 7pm kick-off.

NEC will leapfrog Utrecht with a win

Utrecht left it late to secure all 3pts at home to Vitesse at the weekend but managed to move up into 8th-place with their victory. Veteran forward Bas Dost scored the game's only goal 6-minutes from time, continuing his fine scoring start to the season.  A win on Friday would move Utrecht into the top six for at least 24hrs before Heerenveen and Excelsior play.

Utrecht Predicted lineup – Barkas, van der Maarel, ter Avest, Sagnan, van der Kust,  Toornstra, Brouwers, Boussaid, Dost, Sylla & Douvikas

NEC had the home advantage against Fortuna Sittard but didn;t make the most of it and were lucky to escape with a share of the spoils in the end. The first forty-five minutes ended goalless but the visitors broke the deadlock in the 71st-minute through Ozyakup. NEC pushed for an equaliser and eventually got it deep into stoppage time when Marques was setup by Dimata.

NEC Predicted lineup – Cillessen, Verdonk, Márquez, El Karouani, van Rooij, Schöne, Duelund, Proper, Tannane, Dimata & Tavşan

Team News

Utrecht: Arthur Zagre, Mike van der Hoorn, Ramon Hendriks, Bart Ramselaar & Tommy St. Jago are all injury concerns for the hosts.

NEC: Mathias De Wolf has a hamstring issue that could keep him from making the trip to Utrecht on Friday.
