📊 Form Guide

Almere City
Almere City
DDLLDL 📉

Almere City will be looking to improve on their last outing here after a 3-0 Eredivisie losing effort in their last game against Ajax.

In that match, Almere City had 40% possession and 3 shots at goal with 0 of them on target. Ajax had 11 attempts on goal with 4 on target. Steven Bergwijn (29', 34', 38') scored for Ajax.

It’s been a rare occasion in recent times that Almere City have managed to hold out for a full 90 minutes. The reality is that Almere City have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 5 of their previous 6 matches, giving up 11 goals during that time. Despite that, we will just have to wait and see whether that trend will continue on here in this match.

Going into this game, the form guide shows that Almere City:

  • haven't lost in the league to NEC in their last 4 games.
  • haven’t won at home in the past 6 league games. That's never good.

Following on from a loss in their previous game against Feyenoord in Eredivisie action, NEC and their travelling fans will hope for a better result here.

In a total of 5 out of the previous 6 games featuring NEC, at least three goals have been hit. The average number of goals per match during that spell is 3.17, with the number of goals averaged by NEC equalling 1.67.

Their previous form shows that NEC:

  • are winless against Almere City in games played away from home for the previous 3 league matches.
  • haven't been defeated in their previous 3 league matches away from home.

👥 Head to head

A look at their most recent head to head clashes going back to 13/12/2019 shows that Almere City have won 3 of them and NEC 2, with the tally of drawn matches being 1.

In all, 18 goals were scored between them in this period, with 7 of them for De Zwarte Schapen and 11 for NEC. The average goals per game has been 3.

ℹ️ Team News: Almere City

Yann Kitala (Muscle injury), Stijn Keller (Shoulder injury) and Adi Nalic (unknown injury) will not be taking part for Almere City boss Alex Pastoor.

It’s our opinion that De Zwarte Schapen should use a 5-3-2 formation for this game and select Nordin Bakker, Theo Barbet, Damian van Bruggen, Joey Jacobs, Sherel Floranus, Hamdi Akujobi, J. Ritmeester van, Thomas Robinet, Stije Resink, Kornelius Hansen and Jose Pascual.

📋 Team News: NEC

NEC boss Rogier Meijer has to choose a team with limited availability. Bas Dost (heart problems), Philippe Sandler (Hamstring injury), Kas de Wit (unknown injury), Bart van Rooij (Hamstring injury) and Yvandro Borges Sanches (Cruciate ligament tear) miss out here.

It’s our belief that NEC might begin the game with a 4-4-1-1 formation, starting the game with Jasper Cillessen, Brayann Pereira, Mathias Ross, Calvin Verdonk, Youri Baas, Dirk Proper, Mees Hoedemakers, Tjaronn Chery, Roberto Gonzalez, Kodai Sano and Sylla Sow.

⚡ Prediction

We’re inclined to think that Almere City will really need to work well to break down this NEC outfit who we think will get the win and a maybe even keep a clean sheet as well.

That’s why our selection here is for a good battle with a 0-1 advantage for NEC at the end of the 90.

Hopefully it’s a good one.
