Roda Preview – Can Roda spring a surprise?

Roda finished the regular Eerste Divisie season in 8th place and just one league position below their hosts but ended up nine-points behind NEC, as the visitors limped across the finish line to grab the last remaining play-off spot.

Roda ended up winning just one of their final five matches of the regular season which came in the form of a 2-1 home win over Eindhoven but defeats against Den Bosch 7-0, AZ B 1-0 and a 2-0 loss to to TOP Oss suggest this upcoming clash at NEC could be beyond them.

Roda have also managed just one win from their last five matches on the road, losing three of these, so they could have their work cut out in this play-off tie.
