Preview: NEC vs. PEC Zwolle - prediction, team news, lineups

Sports Mole previews Sunday's Eredivisie clash between NEC and PEC Zwolle, including predictions, team news and possible lineups.

NEC and PEC Zwolle draw the curtain on gameweek 30 of the 2023-24 Eredivisie season with a meeting at Stadion de Goffert on Sunday evening.

Both teams head into this one having emerged victorious from their most recent outings and will be looking to pick up where they left off.


Match preview

NEC made it two wins from their last three matches thanks to a comprehensive 3-0 victory over Vitesse at the GelreDome on Sunday afternoon.

Rogier Meijer's men opened the scoring through Mees Hoedemakers before two goals from Sontje Hansen late on put the result beyond doubt.

Consequently, the Eniesee have moved up to fifth place in the Eredivisie table, six points behind AZ Alkmaar in the race for the final guaranteed European spot.

Coming up next is the challenge of an opposing outfit with little to choose between the teams over the last five meetings, which have yielded two wins apiece and one share of the spoils.

Aiming to pick up what would be a 10th straight home win across all competitions, Sunday's hosts have turned their turf into a fortress of late and will take some stopping here.

PEC Zwolle snapped a dismal eight-game winless streak by narrowly beating SBV Excelsior 2-1 at the MAC3PARK Stadion on Saturday evening.

Goals in either half from Anselmo MacNulty and Odysseus Velanas got the job done for Johnny Jansen's men despite Lance Duijvestijn's consolation strike four minutes from time.

With 31 points picked up from 29 matches so far, De Blauwvingers sit 14th in the standings and are now a whopping seven points clear of relegation danger.

Having shipped 10 goals across their last three away matches, Sunday's visitors will need to tighten up at the back to stand any chance of a positive result here.
