Excelsior vs Helmond Sport Prediction 26.03.2022

Excelsior will welcome Helmond Sport to Van Donge & De Roo Stadion for a matchday 32 fixture in Netherlands Eerste Divisie. The last meeting on 19th November 2021 ended in a Excelsior 5-1 win. Both sides have met twelve times in the most recent seasons. Excelsior has won 4 matches, and Helmond Sport triumphed in 5. Recent outings average 3.75 goals, while both teams score 83% of the time.

Excelsior’s latest fixture against Oss ended in an away 1-1 draw. They were very dangerous in front positions, so one point was the least they deserved. Excelsior was more dominant in the second half and scored in the 86 minute.

Helmond Sport’s recent game against NAC Breda ended in a home 4-0 win. Although Helmond Sport didn’t match their opponent’s intensity and quality while on possession, it was still enough. Helmond Sport had good chances in both halves and scored in the 38th, 43rd, 47th and 61st minute.

So far, Excelsior plays better on the road than at home. They win 2.00 points per away game on average compared to 1.80 points at home. Although Excelsior is among the most solid home teams in the league, they are far from perfect. Their defence is not as good as expected with just 33% home clean sheets.

Helmond Sport has picked up 6 points from the previous six league games. They still have a lot to prove when playing away from home. Helmond Sport wins 0.80 points per away game, a bit less than their home record shows. To improve results, they have to be more compact in defence. Helmond Sport kept a clean sheet in just 20% of their visits.

It is not a surprise that the hosts stand out as a favourite to win this one. Recently they enjoy playing at home, having won three consecutive matches. Roodzwarten is currently unbeaten at home in three games. Since the start of the season, they have just four home defeats.

Helmond Sport is winless in one away game, having tasted defeat on their previous visit. However, they will need plenty of luck to avoid another one against Roodzwarten.

I am confident that the hosts will prove their worth and triumph with another home victory. Excelsior wins on average 1.80 points per home game, compared to 0.80 points per away game for Helmond Sport. My prediction is Excelsior to win.

I expect a thrilling contest with plenty of goals. Both sides score and concede on average 3.14 goals per game. Over 2.5 goals were scored in an average of 57% of Excelsior’s home and Helmond Sport’s away games. My prediction is Over 2.5 Goals.

Both sides have plenty of quality in the attack which often results in high-scoring games. I don’t think this one on Saturday will be any different. On average, both teams score in 50% of Excelsior’s home and Helmond Sport’s away games. My prediction is Both Teams to Score: Yes.
