AZ II will welcome Excelsior to AFAS Trainingscomplex for a matchday 37 fixture in Netherlands Eerste Divisie. The last meeting on 20th November 2020 ended in a Excelsior 4-1 win. Both sides have met three times in the most recent seasons. AZ II has won 0 matches, and Excelsior triumphed in 2. Recent outings average 4.67 goals, while both teams score 100% of the time.

AZ II's last game in the Netherlands Eerste Divisie against Excelsior at home ended in a 2-1 win. The Cheese Farmers had more possession of the ball and took advantage of it. AZ II played much better in the first half and scored in the 17th and 45+1 minute.

Excelsior's recent game against Dordrecht ended in a home 3-0 win. The Kralingers dominated the game and deserved the win. Excelsior had good chances in both halves and scored in the 2nd, 11st and 50th minute.

Since the start of the season, AZ II is more dominant at home. They have seven wins out of 19 games on home soil. Although AZ II is among the most solid home teams in the league, they are far from perfect. Their defence is not as good as expected with just 5% home clean sheets.

Excelsior has picked up 10 points from the previous six league games. They still have a lot to prove when playing away from home. Excelsior wins 1.16 points per away game, a bit less than their home record shows. To improve results, they have to be more compact in defence. Excelsior kept a clean sheet in just 16% of their visits.

The hosts will have to work hard to get a good result. AZ II has won just 37% of home games. On average they score 2.00 goals and concede 2.42 per game. Excelsior is one of the best teams in the league. On paper, they have a great squad and I expect them to make life difficult for their opponent.

The visitors have a better record and I have to back them. AZ II wins on average 1.26 points per home game. I am not sure they have what it takes to compete against Excelsior. My prediction is Excelsior to win.

I expect a thrilling contest with plenty of goals. Both sides score and concede on average 3.97 goals per game. Over 2.5 goals were scored in an average of 72% of AZ II's home and Excelsior's away games. My prediction is Over 2.5 Goals.

Both sides are dangerous going forward. AZ II has scored in 79% of home games. Excelsior is a decent match and has scored in all away games. My prediction is Both Teams to Score: Yes.
