Cambuur Preview – Can Cambuur make sure this time?

Friday’s hosts, Cambuur, can count themselves extremely unfortunate that the Dutch Eerste Divisie season was cancelled last term as they were sitting top of the second tier with a four-point margin over 2nd placed De Graafschap before the lockdown was enforced.

Cambuur will therefore be keen to get this new campaign off to a winning start on Friday when they play host to Nijmegen, and having won their previous seven league matches on the trot, Cambuur will also be keen to prove a point this time around.

The hosts recorded 17 goals during this final seven-match winning streak and conceded just 4 goals in reply, while also winning their last four matches on the trot on home turf at their Cambuurstadion with victories against Utrecht B, MVV, Roda JC and PSV B.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

Nijmegen Preview – Can NEC get off to a good start?

Friday’s visitors, NEC Nijmegen, finished last season in 8th place before all domestic football was cancelled, and they’d lost just two of their last 10 matches overall in the Eerste Divisie and were looking a decent chance for a top eight finish and the ensuing play-offs.

NEC lost just three of their 14 matches at home while an away record of 6-4-5 27/20 was also reasonable enough and included wins on the road at Eindhoven 4-1, a crushing 7-1 win at Telstar and a 2-1 win at Utrecht B, but they’d also lost at home to Friday’s upcoming hosts, Cambuur.

Five defeats from their last 12 away matches in the Eerste Divisie was perhaps too many reverses for Nijmegen’s liking and they’ll be keen to improve on the road this term as they too seek to emulate last season’s 8th place finish.
