Our prediction for this Netherlands Eredivisie match:
Excelsior will look to bounce back from a 2-1 loss to Almere City when they take on Twente in the Eredivisie round 21. De Kralingers have been having their ups and downs of late and they face an uphill task in Saturday’s encounter. All Donkor, Eyongo, and Hartjes are sidelined with injuries, but there are no suspended players in the home team ahead of the visit of Twente.
The Reds, on the other hand, recorded a routine 3-0 win over RKC Waalwijk in their last league match, with the team remaining in the Champions League berth. Even though Twente failed to win the previous three away games, we are tempted to put our money on Joseph Oosting’s troops, who are eager to represent Netherlands in the elite competition next term. To make things even better for the visiting team, important defender Max Bruns is back from suspension.
Highlighted Team (Twente):
Based in the city of Enschede, Twente is a Dutch football club that welcomes their rivals at De Grolsch Veste. The venue was opened on May 10, 1998, and the capacity of the stadium is 30,205 people. The club was founded in 1965 as a merger of Sportsclub Enschede and Enschedese Boys.
The Reds did remarkably well to win the Eredivisie title in the 2009/10 season, with the team finishing the process only one point clear of Dutch giants Ajax. As a result, Twente booked their place in the Champions League group stages. The Reds did well to collect six points in their group, but that did not help them make it to the last 16.
Twente are well known for their red jerseys, but they wear dark blue shirts when playing on the travels. The Reds take on Heracles Almelo in the Twentse Derby. Sander Boshchker is leading Twente’s all-time goal-scoring chart with 653 goals on his account.
