Team News: NAC Breda
Lex Immers (Hamstring Injury) and Moreno Rutten (Ankle Injury) won’t be available for NAC Breda gaffer Maurice Steijn.
Team News: Go Ahead Eagles
GA Eagles manager Kees van Wonderen has to choose from a squad that has some fitness concerns. Sam Crowther (Heart Condition), Mitchel Michaelis (Thigh Problems), Zakaria Eddahchouri (Ill) and Frank Ross (Torn Knee Ligament) will not be playing here.
We think that Go Ahead Eagles will have to work hard as a team to break down this NAC Breda side who we think will manage to get a goal of their own in a winning performance.
We’ve gone for a very even match with a 1-0 victory for NAC Breda when the full-time whistle blows.
It should be a good one.
