Match Preview

It’s advantage NEC after their 2-0 first-leg victory, but it could be a case of déjà vu for RKC Waalwijk fans: the last time they featured at this stage of a promotion play-off, they lost the first leg and then won the second, albeit they were still eliminated (5-2 agg vs Emmen, 2016/17).
Needing a big turnaround to progress, Waalwijk can take solace from the fact that 55.55% of their league wins this season have arrived by at least a two-goal margin. A late flurry could also help see them through, as more than half (18) of Waalwijk’s 35 second-half league goals this term arrived after the 75th minute.
As for the managers, Waalwijk coach Fred Grim has won just one of his five clashes with Nijmegen (W1, L4), conceding exactly two goals in each defeat. Meanwhile, opposing manager Ron de Groot is unbeaten in all five of his encounters with RKC (W4, D1), including victories in his two meetings with Grim.
However, de Groot will be concerned by the fact Nijmegen have failed to keep a clean sheet in all but one away game during the regular season. However, they have managed to find an equalising goal on 14 occasions, after going behind on 26 occasions (53.84%) this league campaign (home and away).
Players to watch: Emil Hansson has been directly involved with five goals across Waalwijk’s last three home matches (two goals, three assists). Meanwhile, Mike Trésor Ndayishimiye (NEC) has scored a first-half goal in three of his last four appearances.
Stat attack: Waalwijk have averaged 3.25 goals scored per match across their last four home matches.
Seven of the last eight H2Hs in Waalwijk have seen just one team score – four were settled by a 2-0 scoreline.
Five of Nijmegen’s last nine away games saw a score-draw – they conceded the opener in four.
