Willem II vs Breda Prediction & Betting tips
With the derby between Willem II and NAC Breda, this Eredivisie weekend starts flying. The Tilburgers have two points ahead of the visitors from Breda, but the Bredanars travel with confidence to Tilburg after the victory over Excelsior last weekend.
Willem II :
Willem II coach Erwin van de Looi has had access to the fit striker duo Fran Sol and Bartholomew Ogbeche for several weeks now. Both attackers were of course already under contract with the Tilburgers last season, but due to a violent injury from Ogbeche and a medical problem with Sol they only recently started playing for Willem II as a pointed duo. The Nigerian and Spaniard are responsible this season for more than sixty percent of the Tilburg hits and last weekend together they made sure that Willem II won 3-1 against Heracles Almelo. Sol made the 1-0 against the visitors from Almelo in the fourth minute and after 21 minutes there was already a 3-0 score on the scoreboard by two goals from Ogbeche.
The victory over the Almeloans was the first competition victory for Willem II since October 20, because then the Tilburgers were 0-1 too strong for FC Groningen. Willem II took fourteen points from the first fourteen games of this season and the Tilburgers have a lead of four points on the relegation zone. The coarse of those points were caught by Sol and Ogbeche, because they were in the last four games in which the Tilburg players managed to take points always responsible for the goal that made the difference between a loss or a draw, or between a draw and a victory .
Of course, in Tilburg and Breda, this competition is always huge and that is understandable. The Willem II supporters will especially look back with satisfaction at the last two games against the visitors from Breda, because the Tilburg team won in two games (4-3 for Willem II) in the nacompetitie of the Bredanaren and remained active at the highest level. . The Tricolores already handed out the first tap to the Bredanaren a few weeks ago, after the visitors lost 0-8 to Ajax in their own Rat Verlegh Stadium.
At NAC Breda they have put a lot of confidence in the run-up to Willem II-out last Sunday. The Bredanaren did not win their seven previous league matches and lost no less than five of those seven. Last Sunday, Excelsior visited the Rat Verlegh Stadium and NAC Breda coach Stijn Vreven saw his team win 3-1 from the stands of the Kralingers. The first two goals of the Bredanaren came on the name of striker Thierry Ambrose who was two times accurate from eleven meters and Paolo Fernandes made in the 77th minute the 3-1 on behalf of the doctoral candidate.
Because of the victory over the visitors from Rotterdam, NAC Breda now has twelve points from fourteen matches and the Bredanaren have been above the relegation streak again since last weekend. The team of Vreven has one point ahead of Sparta Rotterdam and the lead on FC Twente and Roda JC is two points in favor of the Pearl of the South. The Bredanars also had to win Excelsior last Sunday, because prior to the game against the Kralingers, Roda JC won against SC Heerenveen and only with a victory of NAC Breda at Excelsior would the Bredanaren come out on top.
The three points that the Bredanaren against Excelsior managed to tackle are of course desperately needed in the fight against relegation. The Bredanars together with Roda JC have the worst selection of the Eredivisie and where the Church Councilors can still lean on experience, the team from Breda should especially have talent and a lot of willpower this season.
