Our prediction for this Netherlands Eredivisie match:
After dropping two points in a 1-1 draw with Willem II, Twente will be looking to return to winning ways in the Eredivisie when they take on NEC at their De Grolsch Veste. The Reds aim to retain their spot in top seven, and they are likely to adopt an attack-minded approach in Sunday’s clash. Midfielder Ramiz Zerrouki is banned for the match, while all Luca Everink and Vaclav Cerny miss out with injuries. Jody Lukoki is a major doubt.
The newcomers, on the other hand, failed to impress in a 1-0 loss to Vitesse, and seeing that they suffered three defeats in the previous four league fixtures, the visitors are unlikely to grab something from Sunday’s showdown. Magnus Mattsson is sidelined with injury, while both Mathias De Wolf and Rens Van Eijden will be assessed ahead of the kick-off.
