EXCELSIOR VS NEW WILLEM II (Preview, Prediction & Betting Tips) / 21.04.2019

Excelsior have been in freefall lately, losing each of their last seven league matches. Despite picking up 69.23% of their points in front of their own fans, Excelsior have won just a third of their games here this season, winning only twice within the six occasions they have led a home league match over the break this term.
In practice, that means no Eredivisie side has dropped more points at home from a half-time lead than the hosts (nine). The frustration this stat creates is merely added to by the fact that Excelsior have also lost by a single-goal margin in four of their last six matches.
In sharp contrast to Excelsior, no side has picked up more points than Willem II across the last five Eredivisie rounds (W4, L1). That strong form has also contributed to the entertainment factor in their away wins, with three of Willem’s last four away victories seeing both teams score at least twice.
The visitors have picked up just over half of their points away from home, and only Ajax and PSV have registered more away points this season. Peculiarly though, Willem II have scored less than they have conceded on the road, and thus, the majority of their away victories have seen them manage a cleansheet (57.14%).
Players to watch: Excelsior’s Munir El Hamdaoui has scored the only goal across the Rotterdam club’s last 295 minutes of Eredivisie football at the Woudestein.
Willem II’s Alexander Isak is now the first player since Vincent Janssen (in 2016) to score in seven consecutive Eredivisie rounds.
Stat attack: Excelsior (with 2.0 goals conceded per match) have conceded fewer goals than Willem II (2.3) across the last ten Eredivisie rounds.
There have been 4.17 cards shown per match across the last six H2Hs.
Willem II have scored at least twice in eight of their last nine league matches.
