Our prediction for this Netherlands Eredivisie match:
Excelsior will be aiming to make amends for a 1-0 loss to Sparta Rotterdam when they take on Volendam in the Eredivisie round 17. Marinus Dijkhuizen’s troops do not seem to be at their sharpest, with the team suffering four defeats in the previous five league fixtures, but they are still seen as slim favourites to beat Volendam in front of home fans. Both Jacky Donkor and Yassine Ayoub are sidelined with injuries, while Kik Pierie is a major doubt.
Wim Jonk’s troops, on the other hand, have been showing signs of improvement of late, with the team beating both Cambuur and RKC in the last two league matches, and seeing that they are desperate to escape the relegation zone, both teams to score betting option should be considered. With no fresh injury worries to report, Wim Jonk is unlikely to make changes to the team that defeated Joseph Oosting’s troops.
