Graafschap vs Nijmegen Prediction & Betting tips
De Graafschap suffered one of the most painful defeats of recent years. Seven goals against a promises team was nothing to be proud of for the Gelderland title contender. The team can take revenge in the same week with a victory.
Mike Snoei missed a promotion with his team thanks to the decision of the KNVB not to complete the competition. A year later with a slightly changed selection, this objective is still there. Snoei does not want to talk about the role of title candidate, because that is what Cambuur says. Nevertheless, De Graafschap got off the starting blocks In a spectacular duel against FC Den Bosch. After a strong first half of the opponent, De Superboeren eventually won 4-2. However, the first away game was postponed due to an international match, so after a week of rest, Roda JC came to visit. They got to see all corners of De Vijverberg and thanks to two goals from Elmo Lieftink they won 4-0.
Last Monday, De Graafschap had to play its first away game of the Kitchen Champion Division. That match against Young AZ turned out to be unforgettable. Michel Vonk has composed, among others, Tijjani Reijnders, Hakon Evjen and Zakaria Aboukhlal. For people who switched in after 41 minutes, it might have seemed like a mistake on the scoreboard, but it really was 5-0. Ralf Seuntjens then scored the connection goal just before half-time, but then retired with a serious injury. In the second half, De Graafschap did not yet convince and left the necessary gaps. De Graafschap lost 7-3 and lost its first points in the title fight. “We are now being heavily influenced by this result. That is not bad either, let us feel the pain for a moment, ”Snoei says about it.
In addition to Anthony Musaba, Josef Kvida, Bas Kuipers, Randy Wolters, Mart Dijkstra and Tom Overtoom left Nijmegen last summer. Édgar Barreto, Anton Fase, Rangelo Janga, Kevin Bukusu, Jordy Bruijn, Mathias de Wolf and Elayis Tavsan made the opposite walk towards De Goffert. However, it lost right away to title candidate Cambuur in the first round. After that, Rogier Meijer’s team won twice against higher ranked teams in 2019/2020. FC Volendam and Jong Ajax were defeated after the formation change from 4-3-3 to a two-striker system.
With the basic team, NEC visited Almere City in the Yanmar Stadium. From the first minute, the people of Nijmegen seemed quite lacking inspiration. Almere City was the better team, while the experienced Paraguayan Edgar Barreto came back from home quarantine after being infected with the corona virus. After more than an hour, Damon Mirani nodded into the corner of (ex NEC-er) Ryan Koolwijk. That turned out to be the only goal of the game. Almere City, for example, won 1-0 against Meijer’s team. Only in the final phase did his team attack, but that turned out to be too late.
