Our prediction for this Netherlands Eredivisie match:
After holding Utrecht to a goalless draw, G.A. Eagles will be aiming to start a new winning run in the Eredivisie when they take on NEC Nijmegen on Matchday 17. The newcomers have been impressive at the back of late, with the team keeping three clean sheets in the previous four league fixtures, and they should continue to rely on their rock-solid defence. Both Gerrit Nauber and Sam Crowther are sidelined through illness, while Marc Cardona and Turan Tuzlacik are rated doubtful for the game.
NEC, on the other hand, are on a three-game losing run in the Dutch elite division. The visitors were on the verge of holding PSV to a 1-1 draw at the weekend, which is probably the main reason why the share of spoils is on the cards in Deventer. Both Ali Akman and Jonathan Okita continue to miss out with injuries for the away side.
