MAIN PREDICTION: HOME WIN
Excelsior travelled to Helmond Sport and booked a comfortable win. Thomas Verhaar put them ahead just three minutes into the game. The lead was extended through two Elias Mar Omarsson goals in the 70th and 72nd minute. Rai Vloet added a fourth goal just one minute later, his tenth goal of the season. Helmond scored a consolation goal in the 80th minute. Excelsior have now both won and lost just one of their last five league games played.
Jong AZ Alkmaar featured against Volendam at home on Monday. The youngsters almost lost as they fell behind after just 7 minutes. Ferdy Druijf left it until late, but he netted the equalizer in the 87th minute. This keeps Jong AZ Alkmaar undefeated at home for their last six league games played.
Excelsior against Jong AZ Alkmaar who are not playing well away from home should be the clear home favourite here.
SECOND PREDICTION: HILO - HIGH
Jong AZ Alkmaar have failed to win away from home ever since their first league away game of the season, drawing just twice and losing nine. Excelsior have allowed a massive 25 goals in their 12 home league games, so we could be in for several goals in this encounter.
HEAD TO HEAD:
The sides have not met in Rotterdam historically. Jong AZ Alkmaar vs Excelsior saw Excelsior win it 2-1 early on in the season.
