Match Preview

With just five games remaining, Eredivisie overachievers Excelsior could yet end the season on a record high. They currently sit in 11th spot just four points behind eighth and ninth. For the record, Excelsior’s highest ever Eredivisie finish was ninth in 1982/’83.
Excelsior can not attribute any of their success to their home form this season. The Rotterdammers have picked up a league low of just ten points at home, winning just two of 14 games played here this term (W2, D4, L8).
For that reason, it is a good job they welcome one of the Eredivisie’s weakest away sides. Willem II have notched just two wins and three draws from 13 road trips.
Curiously, however, the last ten editions of this fixture (home and away) have seen the home side fail to win.
Willem II cannot be written off as they have been extremely prolific in goal terms this term for a team in the lower echelons of the table. With 43 goals scored they are the highest scoring team currently outside the European qualification placings.
Players to watchHicham Faik is a mainstay in the Excelsior midfield this term. He boasts the highest pass completion percentage in the squad (81.4%), helping him earn five goals and three assists.
Fran Sol is on his way to the Eredivisie golden boot (15 goals), and this is the most any Willem II player has scored in a single Eredivisie campaign since 2001/’02.
Stat attack: Willem II are unbeaten in their last four visits here, winning three and scoring 2+ goals in each victory.
Willem II are also unbeaten in four of their last five Eredivisie games (W3, D1, L1). Two of those victories were against sides in European contention.
