Win for NEC

NEC are looking to make it consecutive victories in the league for the second time this season. Willem II are a huge spot of bother following seven consecutive losses. Even if the hosts remain outside the relegation zone coming into the game, they are likely to spend much time outside on the basis of their current form. After a recent away victory to jump into the 10th spot, NEC might be targeting another three points.

Total goals over 2.5

This has been one of the dullest fixtures in Dutch football with just three goals scored between the two clubs in the last five meetings going all the way back to 2015. Willem II have remarkably failed to score in all of these five matches. The defence of the hosts has looked all over the place in recent weeks and NEC should capitalise on the situation.

Goals from both teams – yes

NEC are not far away from being branded as one of the worst defences in the Dutch Eredivisie this season with more than 25 goals conceded in the 17 league matches so far. Despite struggles, Willem II have been able to score in three out of the last five home matches including a double against PSV.

Willem II vs NEC: Visitors to pile more pressure on Willem II?

Willem II

Willem II are already at one of the lowest points in the season following a string of defeats. After having been in the division for eight years, things are looking shaky on the ground for the team. The club will definitely be without Pol Llonch due to injury, while manager Fred Grimm may also have to do without Freek Heerkens, Robbin Ruiter, and Wesley Spieringhs.


NEC are missing several key players at this juncture, but the recent win over Go Ahead Eagles will give the team a lot of confidence. After having briefly flirted with the top seven places a couple of times this season, NEC are once again looking up. The club will be without the likes of Mikkel Duelund and Elayis Tavsan due to injury.
