An intriguing contest awaits us on Sunday evening when Excelsior and Nac Breda meet for the return leg of the Dutch Playoffs.

The hosts only narrowing escaped relegation last season, but it looks like they won’t be able to do so this season. Excelsior lost the first leg of this tie 6-2 and will have to turn things around without the likes of Arthur Zagré and Lance Duijvestijn who are suspended. However, Marinus Dijkhuizen will get encouragement from the fact that his side won three of the last four games at this ground with a 4+ goal difference.

NAC Breda have picked up their form just when it matters most. The Eerste Divisie side enter this weekend’s game with a run of nine consecutive games without defeat across all competitions. Should they manage to extend this run on Sunday, a place in Holland’s top flight will be the reward and will be the first time since 2018-19 that the Pearl of the South Yellow Army will gain promotion.

Excelsior vs NAC Breda Betting Tips: Over 2.5 goals

Excelsior team news

Lance Duijvestijn and Arthur Zagré will be unavailable to Excelsior head coach Marinus Dijkhuizen this weekend due to suspensions.

Arthur was dismissed for two bookings in the first leg, while midfielder Lance Duijvestijn received a straight red card in the same game.

The absence of the pair could see Siem de Moes and Cisse Sandra start in defence and midfield respectively, but Sven Nieuwpoort and Noah Naujoks are also options.

Lennard Hartjes, Ian Smeulers, Serano Seymor, Kik Pierie, Derensili Sanches Fernandes, Redouan El Yaakoubi and Norbert Alblas will be unavailable due to injuries.

NAC Breda team news

NAC Breda head coach Jean-Paul van Gastel will once again be without the services of Clint Leemans and Javier Vet due to injuries.

The latter has been nursing a knee injury since December last year, while Leemans is unfit to return to action due to tendonitis.

After coming off the bench to score twice in the first leg, Elías Már Ómarsson will be pushing for a start but the 29-year-old is unlikely to replace top scorer Dominik Janošek.
