Our prediction for this Netherlands Eredivisie match:
NEC Nijmegen and Twente take on each other at Gofferstadion in the opening match of Saturday’s program. Rogier Meijer’s troops have been scoring goals for fun of late and their display in a 2-2 draw with title holders Feyenoord is surely giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of the visit of Twente. Bart van Rooij limped off with injury in the De Kuip clash, with Sai Van Wermeskerken likely to step up.
The Reds, on the other hand, did well to beat AZ Alkmaar 2-1 in their last league match, with the team remaining in the Champions League berth. Twente aim to overtake Feyenoord in second place in the standings and given their attacking potential, we believe that punters from all around the globe can find value in betting on over 2.5 goals. The good news for the visiting side is that midfielder Michal Sadilek 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.
