Our prediction for this Netherlands Eredivisie match:
A place in the Eredivisie playoffs final will be at stake when NEC and Roda face each other at Gofferstadion. NEC did well to crush Almere City 4-0 in the quarter-finals, which is surely giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of the visit of Roda. A man to keep an eye on in the home team will be Jonathan Okita, who scored a brace in the victory over Almere.
Roda, on the other hand, did well to beat De Graafschap 3-2 to set up a meeting with NEC in the relegation playoffs semis. Since De Koempels are likely to stick to their attacking style of play, we believe that there is a big value in betting on both teams to score. NEC defenders should have Thijmen Goppel at bay as the 24-year-old attacker impressed in the triumph over De Graafschap at the weekend.
