NEC vs Willem II – Free Betting Tips & Predictions

Both NEC and Willem II have six points after three games ahead of their clash in Nijmegen on Sunday. Read our top three expert predictions for this weekend’s fixture below.

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

Willem II Double Chance

Willem II went in to the recent international break on the back of successive victories and clean sheets against Vitesse and Zwolle and their performance at Arnhem (3-0) was particularly impressive. The Tricolores counter-punched their way to success at Vitesse and that same ability to spring forward on the break makes them a dangerous opponent for newly-promoted NEC. With that considered, the visitors look an excellent price in the double chance market on Sunday.

Under 2.5 Goals

While we expect Willem II to take something from Sunday’s game, a deluge of net-busting action doesn’t look likely. Each of NEC’s last two Eredivisie assignments produced under 2.5 goals, while Willem II have notched just four times in three top-tier fixtures since the summer. Sunday’s contest could be another game decided by fine margins and we’re tipping under 2.5 goals to be registered again.

Kwasi Okyere Wriedt to Score Anytime

Ghanaian forward Kwasi Okyere Wriedt could be the man to tip the scales in Willem II’s favour on Sunday. The 27-year-old broke his duck for the season at Vitesse before the international hiatus, indeed, Wriedt has developed a habit for scoring on the road and each of his last three efforts in the Eredivisie have come in away matches for Willem II. That record marks him out at a price worth backing in the anytime goalscorer market on Sunday.

NEC vs Willem II: Match Preview

NEC team news

Defender Rens Van Eijden has yet to feature for NEC this season and his persistent knee injury will likely keep him out of contention on Sunday. NEC were a little fortunate to beat Heracles last time out having mustered just six attempts to their host’s 14, though don’t expect manager Rogier Meijer to shift from his preferred 4-2-3-1 formation against Willem II.

Willem II team news

Willem II have close to a clean bill of health ahead of Sunday’s fixture, but after back-to-back victories over Vitesse and Zwolle, Fred Grim is unlikely to make sweeping changes. The Tricolores have been setting up in a 4-3-3 shape under their new boss and Willem II should employ the same tactical formula this weekend.
