THE PREDICTION

NEC came up from the Eerste Divisie via the play-offs and drew the shortest straw with an opening day away trip to Ajax on Saturday. The reigning champions won the match 5-0 but we will learn more about NEC from matches such as this as to their ability to stay up this season. A Friday night fixture in front of jubilant fans hoping to make up for lost time from last season’s success has been a powerful force over the last few weeks across Europe and that could see the hosts take initiative in this one against travelling PEC Zwolle. The visitors just about escaped relegation last season and they will be hopeful for better this time around, again with a 0-1 opening defeat at home to Vitesse not the kindest way to kick off the new campaign. With neither side scoring last weekend there is little to go on but taking NEC at double chance seems a reasonable option with home advantage firmly back in the football equation.
