De Graafschap will welcome Excelsior to Stadion De Vijverberg for a matchday 7 fixture in Netherlands Eerste Divisie. The last meeting on 19th March 2021 ended in a 1-1 draw. Both sides have met sixteen times in the most recent seasons. De Graafschap has won 7 matches, and Excelsior triumphed in 4. Recent outings average 2.94 goals, while both teams score 69% of the time.

De Graafschap's latest fixture against AZ II ended in an away 2-1 loss. De Graafschap dominated the possession of the ball but didn't take advantage of it. De Graafschap was more dominant in the second half and scored in the 48 minute.

Excelsior's recent game against Dordrecht ended in a home 3-1 win. The Kralingers dominated the game and deserved the win. Excelsior pushed forward in the second half and scored in the 47th, 60th and 90+3 minute.

So far, De Graafschap plays better on the road than at home. They win 2.27 points per away game on average compared to 1.09 points at home. Although De Graafschap 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 27% home clean sheets.

Excelsior has picked up 14 points from the previous six league games. It is quite intriguing that they prefer playing on the road. Excelsior has collected 2.27 points on average per away game, compared to 1.80 at home.

It is not a surprise that the hosts stand out as a favourite to win this one. De Graafschap lost the previous game at home but still have a lot of advantage over their opponent. They have won 27% of home games which gives them plenty of confidence for the upcoming fixture.

The Kralingers is winless in one away game, having tasted defeat on their previous visit. However, they will need plenty of luck to avoid another one against De Graafschap.

I am confident that the hosts will prove their worth and triumph with another home victory. De Graafschap wins on average 1.09 points per home game, compared to 2.27 points per away game for Excelsior. My prediction is De Graafschap to win.

Both sides have plenty of quality in the attack which often results in high-scoring games. I don't think this one on Friday will be any different. On average, both teams score in 34% of De Graafschap's home and Excelsior's away games. My prediction is Both Teams to Score: Yes.
