De Graafschap Prediction

Let’s take a look at De Graafschap first, and the hosts sit bottom but just a point behind their visitors as they look to bounce back from their recent 2-0 defeat away at Excelsior who lifted themselves above the relegation zone with that win.

De Graafschap will be hoping they can achieve the same outcome on Friday night and all three points in this encounter would see them move level on points with third from bottom club Groningen who occupy one of the two relegation play-off places.

De Graafschap have managed to record just one win from their last nine matches in the Eredivisie but that was a 5-1 crushing defeat handed out to Fortuna Sittard at their Stadion De Vijverberg which has seen a few goals this term.

A home record of 4-1-5 17/19 includes 6 of the 10 matches seeing both teams score as De Graafschap can score and concede in equal measure. Midfielder El Jebli (5 goals) and forward Serrarens (6 goals) look likely goalscorers here.


Key-Facts – De Graafschap v NAC Breda

  • 6 of De Graafschap’s 10 home matches have seen both teams score
  • NAC Breda have lost just 1 of their last 5 matches in the Eredivisie
  • 4 of the last 7 encounters between these two clubs have seen both teams score


NAC Breda Prediction

NAC Breda sit one position and one point ahead of their hosts ahead of this crucial relegation clash but the visitors will be buoyed by the fact that they’ve suffered just one defeat in their last five matches in the Dutch top flight, that being a 2-0 loss away at mid-table Willem II.

However, recent wins against Vitesse and Heerenveen (both at their Rat Verlegh Stadion) have given Breda belief that they can escape the drop but they’ll need to start improving results away from home immediately if they’re to stand a chance of Eredivisie survival.

A poor away record of 0-2-7 6/24 doesn’t look promising at all, along with the fact that along with De Graafschap, are the only teams without an away win this season. The best they can hope for, it appears, is a point at De Graafschap on Friday night, but they do possess dangerous strike pair te Vrede (9 goals) and Rosheuvel (5 goals) up front who give them a fighting chance.

Betting Tips Verdict

Both De Graafschap and Breda have shown signs of a recovery in recent times, so both teams to score looks appealing here.
