These odds from Ladbrokes were correct at the time of writing.

Hosts to win the match

These teams are on opposite sides when it comes to recent form. NEC Nijmegen have won just one of their last seven games across all competitions; they’ve lost four of those games, with two draws. Additionally, NEC Nijmegen have no wins in their last three games, and they lost their last two games. On the other hand, Groningen have been relatively better; they’ve lost just once in their last six games, and they won three of those six games. It’s also worth noting that Groningen tend to go out all guns blazing; they scored first in five of their last six games, and led at half-time in those five games. With this in mind, we’re making the prediction that Groningen will win this match.

Both teams will score

We’ve pointed out that Groningen drew first blood in five of their last six games; they’ve been consistent goal scorers, scoring in six of their last seven games. To be fair, Groningen have not done a very good job defensively either; they’ve kept just one clean sheet in their last 16 games in all competitions. In the same vein, NEC Nijmegen scored in seven of their last eight games, whilst conceding in seven of those eight games. Both teams scored in five of Groningen’s last seven games, and in six of NEC Nijmegen’s last eight games; for these reasons, we believe that both teams will find the net.

We’ll see a few goals

Our final prediction for this game is on the over/under goals market. Recent encounters between these sides have been on the high-scoring side; their last three clashes all went above the 2.5 goal margin, with four goals scored on average in those three games. Also, it’s fair to point out that six of the last nine times NEC Nijmegen visited Groningen, they scored more than three goals. We’ve already established that both teams have scored and conceded goals consistently this season; and on that note, we should expect at least three goals in this game.
