Excelsior Preview – Can Excelsior transfer away form?

Although Excelsior have already registered heavy defeats on the road away at PSV B 6-1 and a 3-1 win at Dordrecht, Monday evening’s hosts have struggled at home so far in this new Eerste Divisie campaign as they’ve lost both of their home matches to date this season.

An extraordinary 6-4 defeat to Almere City was followed by a 2-1 loss to Telstar and along with last weekend’s 3-0 loss away fro home at Ajax B, Excelsior now head into this upcoming clash against De Graafschap looking to avoid a third defeat on the trot.

Excelsior’s early struggles at home in this season’s Eerste Divisie are in contrast to their form on home turf towards the end of last season as they’d finished up with a five-match unbeaten run which included winning their last two matches on the trot against Den Bosch and Maastricht respectively.

Our betting suggestion:

De Graafschap Preview – Can De Graafschap continue good start?

De Graafschap can count themselves really unfortunate not to have achieved automatic promotion from the Dutch second tier last season as both of the top flight domestic seasons were decided to be cancelled with no relegations or promotions.

This meant that De Graafschap who were in 2nd place when last season’s cancellation happened missed out, but they’ve started this new season in promising fashion, winning three of their first four matches of this new campaign.

Victories over Den Bosch, Roda and NEC (all of which were at home) have given De Graafschap a decent start to this new season although their only away match to date this term ended in a heavy 7-3 defeat at AZ Alkmaar B, but the visitors have lost just once in their previous four meetings against Excelsior.
