Niedercorn (Lux) vs Willem II (Ned) Prediction & Betting tips
Not Viking FK from Norway or Bala Town FC from Wales became Willem II’s upcoming opponent. In an all-important away match against Luxembourg football club Progrès Niederkorn, the Dutch will have to show that they are suitable for the European stage. If the Tilburgers win, Lincoln Red Imps or Rangers FC will be the next challenger.
FC Progres Niederkorn:
Not only the Tilburg fans, but also the players of Willem II have, according to their own words, just googled Progrès Niederkorn. The club is from the eponymous city in Luxembourg came second in the league last season. In addition, it scored the most goals in the league and approached leader Fola Esch by only two points. The yellow-blacks were therefore able to qualify for the preliminary rounds of the Europa League. This was the sixth time in seven years to qualify for the preliminary rounds. The best performance was when the Luxembourgers eliminated Rangers in two games last round. If Roland Vrabec’s team manages to stunt Willem II, Steven Gerrard’s team could again be the next opponent.
The Tilburgers had a very strong season in the Eredivisie last football season. His team flourished under Adrie Koster and was even briefly referred to as “giant killer”. Willem II namely put down an unbeaten series of nine games. It contained great victories against Ajax, PSV and AZ. Willem II fought with FC Utrecht for the Europa League tickets, but then COVID19 suddenly came into play. The KNVB decided to end the season and with that, the qualification for the Europa League preliminary round went to Tilburg. Whether that is really justified remains to be seen, as FC Utrecht approached three points with a game less played. Yet in the Netherlands it was quite nice that this privilege once went to Tricolores. Last year, the Utrecht team faced the Bosnian HSK Zrinjski Mostar in this preliminary round, in which they were immediately eliminated.
Players such as Timon Wellenreuther and Damil Dankerlui found their way out of the King Willem II Stadium last summer. The board had to do something and first of all, the impressive Mike Trésor Ndayishimiye’s presence was extended with a transfer. In addition to goalkeepers Robbin Ruiter and Jorn Brondeel, the talented right back Leeroy Owusu was also attracted. With the hire of left back Derrick Köhn and striker Kwasi Okyere Wriedt from Bayern Munich, Koster’s selection seemed complete. Jop van der Avert and Jasper Dahlhaus were also added to the selection for the upcoming game under 21 players. It was also announced at the beginning of the week that Willem II is bringing John Yeboah to Brabant. He may also be in the selection against Progrès Niederkorn.
Yet the opening game in the Eredivisie turned out to prove the opposite. Willem II was able to immediately cross off her far away match against SC Heerenveen. With a somewhat weakened team in a few positions, it did not seem to work. The Frisians were the parent and new acquisition Köhn played anything but great. SC Heerenveen had not yet won in the preparation but started flashing. They defeated the number five of the Eredivisie 2-0 thanks to two goals from defenders.
