NEC Nijmegen vs Jong Ajax (By: Dajkula)
NEC welcomes Ajax II in the 31`nd round of the Dutch Erste Divisie.
Nec is just outside the promotion play-off, on the 13`th place with 32 points. Being patient with the coach de Gier has paid off for NEC as the team is moving up the table. The situation was dire before the winter break but has vastly improved since. NEC lost the last away game against Sparta 0:1 but before that was undefeated in 9 matches. The last rounds were especially good when the team played at home. They won the last 4 matches and were convincing to boot: Utrecht II 4:1, Almere 5:0, Roda 1:0, Den Bosch 5:0. This brings their home total to 7-5-3 and they welcome Ajax II in good spirit.
Ajax II was playing great in the last season but they are far from it in this one. The team changed a lot and they miss some real quality in their ranks. Ajax II has especially lost their courage when playing away from home. They are now 1 of the worst 4 traveling teams of the league and they lost 8 times for a total of 4-3-8 away. They also conceded 30 goals in those 15 matches played. Often they were placed as big favorites in those matches. Ajax II has 1-2-2 away after the winter break so it is better than before but still far from good. The last one away from home was lost to TOP Oss 1:2.
I do fancy the home side to come on top.
NEC will be missing Rens van Eijden and Norbert Alblas.
NEC: Branderhorst; Joppen, Van den Berg, Kvida, Sanniez; Dijkstra, Bruijn, Labylle; Okita, Druijf, Wolters
Ajax II: Kotarski; Dest, Schuurs, Botman, Maduro; Gravenberch, Ekkelenkamp, Jensen; Cerny, Traore, Kuhn.
