Utrecht and NEC Nijmegen square off against each other at Stadion Galgenwaard, in what is expected to be a close Netherland Eredivisie game.
Utrecht aim to build on back-to-back wins over Vitesse and Fortuna Sittard, and a triumph over NEC should see them move closer to the playoffs berth.
Experienced attacker Bas Dost will be the man to keep an eye on in the home side, since he scored three goals in his last four starts for the home side.
All Arthur Zagre, Mike van der Hoorn, Bart Ramselaar and Tommy St. Jago will probably miss the match, whilst Ramon Hendriks has yet to recover from a long-term ACL injury.
The visitors, on the other hand, haven’t lost any of their last five league games, and will look to extend the trend on Friday.
However, Rogier Meijer’s men failed to score in each of their last three matches against Utrecht, and that’s the main reason why we are going to put our money on the home side. Mathias De Wolf is rated doubtful for the match.
