Competition: Dutch Eredivisie
Market: NEC to win against Excelsior
Odds: 4/5 @ 888 Sport
NEC Nijmegen’s clash against Excelsior Rotterdam could see the newly-promoted hosts come out on top in their opening clash, with NEC likely to be in high spirits early into the new campaign. Boasting 33 wins from 38 league games in the second tier last season, the hosts have momentum on their side.
As for the visitors, Excelsior are coming off the back of a disappointing league season that saw them finish just one place above the drop zone, ending the campaign winless in their final nine games. The form of the two clubs could not be more opposing, and 888 Sport are backing NEC to come away with all three points this evening as a result.
The step up in quality will take tome for NEC to adjust to, but they are locking horns with a side that have dropped points on a regular basis earlier this year, so the home side will certainly fancy their chances of getting maximum points from tonight’s outing. Victory for NEC would see Excelsior pick up as poorly where they left off, while giving the survival-hopefuls a dream start to the new campaign.
Bet: NEC Nijmegen to earn all three points in tonight’s Eredivisie clash against Excelsior Rotterdam @ 4/5 with 888 Sport >>
