Twente put their six-game unbeaten run on the line when they travel to Nijmegen to take on NEC. Read our top three predictions for this weekend’s fixture below.

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

Twente Draw no Bet

Ajax are the only team to have beaten Twente in 17 Eredivisie fixtures involving the Tukkers since October and Ron Jans’ tough to topple side can fuel their charge for third place with another positive result at NEC. Twente have momentum to burn following a fine run of four wins from five, though bettors are advised to seek out the comfort on offer in the draw no bet market on Saturday. NEC have drawn three of their last five fixtures at home, so take the safer route.

Both Teams to Score

NEC have found victories hard to dig out at Goffertstadion, recording just two of them in total this term in the Eredivisie, however, Rogier Meijer’s underperformers are quite reliable in another metric when playing on home soil. Indeed, both teams have scored in six of their last eight league assignments in Nijmegen and having already traded blows with Twente once this season, a stake in the same market is advised as the prices on offer.

First Team to Score: Twente

Twente have been consistent deadlock-breakers in recent weeks, firing home the first goal in 100% of their last five Eredivisie matches. Interestingly, only two clubs have conceded more often in the opening 30 minutes than NEC in 2021/22 – a record that suggests Twente’s chances of nabbing the contest’s first strike again could be high this weekend.

NEC vs Twente Match Preview and Team News


NEC have doubts over the availability of Bart van Rooij, Edgar Barreto, Pedro Ruiz and Rens Van Eijden this weekend. Rogier Meijer’s troops snapped a five-game winless streak with a timely 2-1 triumph over Cambuur last time out. NEC still have an outside shot at making the Europa Conference League Play-off positions, though they will need to improve their dire home form fast.


Wout Brama is a doubt with a muscular complaint this week, though Twente have a strong squad to choose from elsewhere. The Tukkers came within a whisker of beating PSV last weekend, though they somehow threw away a three-goal lead late on and had to be satisfied with a point. Twente are still just three points shy of third-placed Feyenoord in the standings, however.
