If you are uncertain about the right bet for the Cambuur vs Excelsior duel, check our top betting tips for this game right here:

Cambuur to Win

The home team was right in the middle of the standings last season in Eredivisie, while Excelsior managed to win the promotion playoffs and get back to the top rank of Dutch football.

So, this could be an interesting match, but the home team is clearly the favourite. After all, they are the better team on paper and they are hosting the game, so we expect them to win this match, just like they did in the last four meetings with Excelsior.

Over 2.5 Total Goals

Three of the last four head-to-head duels between Cambuur and Excelsior have gone over 2.5 total goals and we would be surprised if that’s not the case on Saturday as well.

After all, Cambuur averaged 3.62 goals per game in Eredivisie last season, while Excelsior averaged 3.66 goals per game in Eerste Divisie last year. Both of these averages were second-best in their respective leagues.

Both Teams to Score – Yes

Although both teams scored in just two of the last five h2h meetings between Cambuur and Excelsior, we can see that happening now, in their upcoming match.

The reason lies in the fact that both teams scored in 74% of all Cambuur games in the league last year, while the same thing happened in 61% of all Excelsior matches in Eerste Divisie last season.

Cambuur vs Excelsior preview: A very interesting matchup

Cambuur

After they finished the last season right in the middle of the standings, Cambuur and their fans will be hoping to make a step forward this season and perhaps get into the top half of the table in Eredivisie. Meanwhile, the team will have to manage without Gullit and Van der Water in the first round of the new season due to injuries.

Excelsior

Even though they ended the regular season in Eerste Divisie with two losses and four draws in the last six rounds, Excelsior managed to find their best form at the right time and they won the promotion playoffs to secure their spot in Eredivisie this season. The team is obviously one of the main candidates for relegation, but they might surprise us all. Agrafiotis is injured and out of this match.
