Match Preview

After losing the first leg 2-1, Excelsior must up their home form after winning just one of their last five home matches (W1, D1, L3), conceding exactly two goals in four of those, and leading at half-time in one of them (HT: W1, D2, L2).
However, that first leg did continue a recent trend that has seen Excelsior’s last six fixtures feature both teams scoring – in fact three of those produced a spectacular six goals or more. Additionally, with four of those last six games seeing both teams score in the first half, and with at least one first-half goal in four of the hosts’ last five home games, a quick start could be on the cards here.
RKC Waalwijk will be happy to take that slender lead with them to Rotterdam considering they are winless in seven of their last ten play-off away matches (W3, D1, L6). Six of those featured under 2.5 goals, although seven of their last eight fixtures have produced over 2.5.
Winning at half-time in three of their last four away games, the visitors know how to start quickly, although the fact that 12 of the last 14 away goals that they have conceded arrived after the break indicates a second-half capitulation is possible.
Players to watch: Jeffry Fortes scored Excelsior’s consolation in the first leg – three of his last four goals were as his side’s first goalscorer.
Emil Hansson’s (RKC) last five goals were scored before half-time – three were match openers.
Stat attack: There’s been a goal scored after the 80th minute in three of Excelsior’s last four home matches.
The opener has been scored within 20 minutes in three of Waalwijk’s last four away matches.
Four of the last five play-off H2Hs between these two teams saw both teams score, although three were goalless at half-time.
