Excelsior form and stats

Excelsior have collected 23 points from their Eerste Divisie home games so far after 7-2-3. Two draws in a row at home now for Excelsior.

Happy days for Excelsior in their previous game, a Eerste Divisie match away at Helmond Sport (placed 20th) that ended with a 4-1 victory. Before that, Excelsior drew at home versus NAC Breda.

Excelsior are an "over 2,5 goals" team alone here at Van Donge & De Roo Stadion in their league games, having scored an impressive 32 goals in 12 matches. Excelsior are struggling defensively, conceding on average more than two goals per home game (25 from 12 played).

Jong AZ form and stats

The hunting on away grounds haven’t been very fruitful for Jong AZ so far with only 5 points returning home. The records show 1-2-9 (win-draw-lose). The loyal fans travelling with their beloved Jong AZ have enjoyed the stadium food more than the matches as the visitors have gone eleven consecutive matches without winning on the road. The last time three points were secured away was the TOP Oss game.

Jong AZ's last game was the home draw against FC Volendam (1-1). Prior to that match, the Jong AZ manager M. Vonk faced defeat when travelling to FC Den Bosch and losing 0-3.

Jong AZ find the net in their away games, although not all the time. 15 goals from 12 away fixtures in the league. The Jong AZ manager M. Vonk has some worries about the defense as 28 goals have been conceded in these travels.

Head 2 Head
