Excelsior Prediction

Excelsior ended a miserable run of four league defeats on the trot last time out when they registered a much needed 2-0 home win over De Graafschap which has lifted the hosts out of the relegation zone for the time being.

Recent defeats to PSV in a 6-0 thrashing, AZ Alkmaar, Heracles and Vitesse threatened to drop Excelsior in the relegation mire but last week’s win has temporarily relieved their relegation worries, although they now face a tough proposition in the shape of visitors Feyenoord on Sunday.

Excelsior’s home record stands at a slightly disappointing 3-3-4 17/25 with just one win from their last five matches on home turf, and even though they took all three points last time out at home, they’ll have their work cut out here.


Key-Facts – Excelsior v Feyenoord

  • Excelsior have managed just 1 win from their last five at home
  • Feyenoord recorded a 6-2 win over Ajax last weekend
  • Feyenoord have scored in 7 of their 9 away matches to date


Feyenoord Prediction

Feyenoord laid down a marker in the Eredivisie last weekend when they thrashed 2nd placed Ajax 6-2 at their Stadion Feijenoord but the visitors still occupy 3rd place in the Dutch top flight and are eight points adrift of Ajax as they make their way to face Excelsior this Sunday.

Nevertheless, their 6-2 win over Ajax will give them a massive confidence boost when they take to the road and having registered a heavy 4-1 win away at Emmen recently, the visitors will be in confident mood as they look to improve upon an away record of 3-3-3 16/16.

Feyenoord have produced mixed results on their travels in recent weeks as they’ve suffered defeats at Ajax and PEC Zwolle but have also recorded victories at Heracles and Emmen, but the positive is that Feyenoord have scored in 7 of their 9 away matches to date, scoring 2 goals or more in 4 of these 9 to date.

Evergreen striker van Persie (10 goals) along with forwards Larsson (4 goals) and Berghuis (6 goals) are the main goal threats for the visitors.

Betting Tips Verdict

Excelsior come into this match on the back of a much needed win but time will tell if they’ve turned a corner or if it was a one-off as they face a dangerous attacking Feyenoord outfit.
