In the 5th round of the Dutch Eredivisie, Den Bosch will play at home against Excelsior.
Den Bosch are the old Eerste Divisie team, last season the team was in a slump and ended up in the bottom 2 of the league.
The team started the new season with 2 straight wins, but then seemed to go back to the same path as last season. The team lost to Ajax Juniors and FC Eindhoven and are currently 7th in the league with 6 points.
Looking at the stats, Dombos have scored 5 goals and conceded 4 in 4 rounds of league play, which is an mediocre performance on both the offensive and defensive ends.
In the last league match away to FC Eindhoven, Den Bosch dominated the field, with 57% possession and 5 out of 10 shots on target. However, a goal was scored after only 10 minutes of the game, and the team then failed to break through and ended up with a 0-1 defeat, while suffering their second straight loss.
It is worth noting that Den Bosch’s squad has not grown in strength in the summer window, with seven defenders, two midfielders and a winger leaving the team, making the defense a bit overwhelmed.
Excelsior finished last season in 9th place in the league and failed to qualify for the promotion play-offs.
The team got off to a bad start this season, losing their first match to 0-1 Os, but they have recovered from their shame and are unbeaten in 3 consecutive matches, currently sitting in 5th place in the league with 7 points.
In terms of statistics, Excelsior also scored 5 goals and conceded 4 in 4 rounds of league matches, which is an average performance in terms of attack and defence. However, it is worth noting that the team has conceded goals in every game, and the problem in the defensive end is still prominent.
Excelsior played away to Ajax Juniors in the last league and the team was at a disadvantage on the field, with 37% possession, 13 shots and 5 shots on target. The team took the lead thanks to second half goals from Yakubi and Marouane Azarcan, and although they gave away a penalty near the end of the game, the team was able to win 2-1.
In their previous meetings, Den Bosch have won two, drawn three and lost five of their last 10 matches against SBV Excelsior, and are unbeaten in their last seven matches, putting their record at a disadvantage.
In terms of recent form, Den Bosch started with 2 straight wins but followed that up with 2 straight defeats, while SVB Excelsior, despite an imperfect start, have done well to steal points from strong teams such as Roda JC and Volendam in quick succession.
Judging from the current attitudes of all parties, there are no clear favorites, but combined with the current strength of both sides, SVB is still capable of taking home points in this battle.
