Excelsior vs AZ Reserves prediction
Excelsior manager Moniz got sacked because of the dissapointing results and they appointed Marinus Dijkhuizen as the new manager. He will face his former team here as he got sacked in Breda himself a few years ago.
Dijkhuizen is well known in Kralingen as he was the manager in 2014. They got promoted to the Eredivisie that year so they hope for something similair this season.
Dijkhuizen made his first move already by bringing in defender Brandon Ormonde-Ottewil from Dordrecht.
''We need to improve in our defensive organisation.'
So in his first game on the bench they were leading with 2-0 against NAC till the 87th (!!) minute, but they could somehow not hold on for the win.
So Excelsior comes from an impressive 4-1 win in Helmond. According to the reports they could score a lot more.
Jong AZ on the other side is playing terrible on the road. They won just once on the road and this was the first game of the season against a terrible Top Oss team.
Not much help expected from the first team either as they played in the CUP AND have tomorrow an important game in Enschede.
Joey Jacobs is back from a suspension while Millen Baars came over from Manchester United.
I think the hosts can win this match.
