Excelsior form and stats

Excelsior's results here at Van Donge & De Roo Stadion in the Eerste Divisie have been very modest with 3 victories, 0 draws and 6 defeats. It's trouble wherever Excelsior are playing these days as they have suffered six straight defeats now, regardless of arena. They really need to get back to winning ways. With Excelsior having lost three times in a row here, the pressure is increasing on the manager M. Dijkhuizen.

Excelsior faced defeat in their previous match, away at NEC (2-3). Preceding that match was a defeat to NAC Breda (0-3).

A disaster for the home team in their last match (vs NEC) as a comfortable lead 2-0 was completely ruined into a loss 2-3.

There will be little rest for Excelsior after this match as they are travelling to MVV Maastricht for a KNVB Beker game in only four days.

A decent goal production from Excelsior in their home games so far, with 17 goals from 9 league matches. It's been trouble in front of goal recently, as only 2 of these goals has been scored in their last three home matches. Excelsior have conceded 18 goals in these home games, a significant number.

FC Eindhoven form and stats

3-3-3 is the win-draw-loss statistic for FC Eindhoven in their Eerste Divisie matches away. One point away has become something of a habit for FC Eindhoven who have played out draws in their last three away games.

Eindhoven has to pack their bags again for the second away game in a row. Last time they traveled to Almere City for a Eerste Divisie game that ended a draw (0-0). A 2-5 loss hosting SC Cambuur before that.

The visitors have scored 7 goals from 9 away games in the league, an average of less than one per game. Eindhoven's defence is not exactly unbeatable as they have conceded 15 goals from these trips.

Head 2 Head

This is not the first time this season these parties meet, as the history books show this recent fixture: FC Eindhoven - Excelsior 1-1. As for the last ten games between these two teams, there's four Excelsior victories, four draws and two FC Eindhoven wins. Over/under statistics; six of these games ended with three goals or more, four matches with two goals or less.
