Our prediction for this KNVB Cup match:
MVV kicked off their Eredivisie campaign with a 1-0 win over Volendam, but they head into Tuesday’s KNVB Beker clash following back-to-back defeats to Jong Utrecht and G.A. Eagles. Maastricht have been struggling in front of goal of late, and it should come as no surprise bookies see them as underdogs in the Dutch Cup clash. Excelsior, on the other hand, produced a scintillating display in a 1-0 win over Eindhoven, meaning that they are brimming with confidence ahead of the trip to Maastricht.
The Kralingers aim to give fans yet another reason for celebration, and seeing that MVV suffered a dip in form, we are tempted to put our money on the visiting team. When the teams met in the Eerste Divisie in October 2020 Excelsior outplayed MVV 2-0, and we predict that the history is going to repeat itself.
