Excelsior form and stats

Excelsior's results here at Van Donge & De Roo Stadion in the Eerste Divisie have been very modest with 3 victories, 0 draws and 6 defeats. Regardless of arena the trend is looking very unhealthy for Excelsior with their six defeats in a row. Not since the Jong AZ game, 56 days ago, have they avoided a loss. Game days at Van Donge & De Roo Stadion have recently become somewhat of a nightmare for Excelsior as they have lost three home games in a row. It hurts.

The fans are hoping that Excelsior will strike back in this match, putting things right after the 2-3 away loss in the Eerste Divisie game against NEC (placed 5th). Before that game, the home loss against NAC Breda with the scoreline 0-3.

A disaster for the home team in their last match (vs NEC) as a comfortable lead 2-0 was completely ruined into a loss 2-3.

The manager M. Dijkhuizen will start preparations for the next game as soon this is finished, as the hosts are going to MVV Maastricht in only four days.

A decent goal production from Excelsior in their home games so far, with 17 goals from 9 league matches. It's been trouble in front of goal recently, as only 2 of these goals has been scored in their last three home matches. Excelsior are struggling defensively, conceding on average more than two goals per home game (18 from 9 played).
