Our prediction for this KNVB Cup match:
Gofferstadion will host Wednesday’s KNVB Beker game between NEC Nijmegen and Go Ahead Eagles. Nijmegen did well to hold reigning champions Feyenoord to a 2-2 draw in their last league match, which is surely giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of the Dutch Cup game. As NEC scored 15 goals in total in the previous four games in all competitions, we are positive that they will find the net against Go Ahead Eagles. Bart van Rooij limped off with injury in the last league match, with Sai Van Wermskerken likely to step up.
Rene Hake’s men, on the other hand, created a number of clear-cut opportunities to score in an unlucky 3-2 loss to Ajax, which is yet another reason why we are going to bet on over 2.5 goals. There are no fresh injury worries in the visiting team ahead of the Dutch Cup clash.
