📰 Team News: NEC

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) won’t be available for NEC manager Rogier Meijer.

It looks as if NEC will probably use the 4-2-3-1 formation for this game, utilising Jasper Cillessen, Brayann Pereira, Bram Nuytinck, Calvin Verdonk, Youri Baas, Dirk Proper, Mees Hoedemakers, Sontje Hansen, Tjaronn Chery, Kodai Sano and Koki Ogawa.

📰 Team News: Go Ahead Eagles

Due to a mostly full-strength group of players, there’s only the sole fitness issue for the Go Ahead Eagles manager René Hake to be concerned about. Mats Deijl (Knee injury) misses out for this game.

We’re of the thinking that Trots aan de IJssel could decide to begin the game with a 4-2-3-1 formation, starting the game with Jeffrey De Lange, Luca Everink, Gerrit Nauber, Joris Kramer, Bas Kuipers, Evert Linthorst, Philippe Rommens, Bobby Adekanye, Jakob Breum, Oliver Edvardsen and Victor Edvardsen.

💭 Prediction

When taking all factors into account, Go Ahead Eagles would be disappointed if they were not to break down this NEC team, however that probably shouldn’t be enough to avoid a loss.

We’re predicting a tight encounter finishing with a 2-1 advantage for NEC by the time that the referee blows the final whistle. Let’s wait and see how it plays out.
