Utrecht and Excelsior face at Stadion Galgenwaard, in a match for the 18th round of the Eredivisie. In the last league head‑to‑head, played in 02‑10‑2022, FC Utrecht got an away win by (0‑1). The recent head‑to‑head record favours the home team, since they have a record of 1 win and 1 draw in the last 2 matches. In this match the home advantage may play an important role, as both teams present significant differences between home and away performances.

Analysis Utrecht

After 7 wins, 5 draws and 5 losses, the home team is in the 8th position, havinf won 26 points so far. In the last match, they have lost in an away match against FC Twente by (2‑0), after in the previous match they have tied (2‑2) an away match against Go Ahead Eagles. This is a team that usually gets better results in away matches than at home, since in the last 30 matches they register 7 wins, 3 draws and 5 losses in away matches, with 28 goals scored and 26 conceded; against 5 wins, 4 draws and 6 losses at their stadium, with 20 goals scored and 20 conceded. In the last 8 home league matches Utrecht has a record of 3 wins, 3 draws and 2 losses, so they have won 12 points out of 24 possible. The most recurrent result at half‑time in their home league matches was the 0‑0 (3 out of 8 matches). They haven't been very strong defensively, since they have suffered goals in 8 of the last 10 matches, but their offense has scored frequently, since they have scored goals in 9 of the last 10 matches for this competition. In their home matches for this competition there is a tendency for few goals, since 5 of the last 8 matches have ended with Under 2,5 goals. In 17 matches for this competition, they have conceded the first goal 7 times and have only turned the score around in 2. there is 1 period that stands out in the last 13 home matches for all competitions: they have scored 6 of their 14 goals between minutes (76'‑90').

Utrecht has yet to win after the return of the Dutch league and that has been bothering them. The team wants to take advantage of the home factor to hold Excelsior and manage to add the three points after the end of the match. Therefore, we should see the home team having ball possession and exchanging passes, all this to get closer to the opponent's goal. By being able to execute their game plan and not having any mistakes, the probability of having a favorable score will be higher.

Confirmed Lineup: Vasilis Barkas, Mike Van der Hoorn, Modibo Sagnan, Hidde ter Avest, Nick Viergever, Taylor Booth, Jens Toornstra, Sander van de Streek, Can Bozdogan, Anastasios Douvikas, Othman Boussaid.
Coach: R. Hake.

Analysis Excelsior

The away team is currently in the 11th position of the league, with 19 points won, after 6 wins, 1 draw and 10 losses. In the penultimate match, they lost in an away match against Sparta Rotterdam, by (1‑0). In the last match, they won in a home match against FC Volendam, by (2‑0). This is a team that usually makes good use of the home advantage, stronger with the help of its supporters, since in the last 30 matches they register 2 wins, 3 draws and 10 losses in away matches, with 13 goals scored and 34 conceded; against 8 wins, 3 draws and 4 losses at their stadium, with 28 goals scored and 23 conceded. In the last 9 away league matches Excelsior has a record of 1 win, 1 draw and 7 losses, so they have won 4 points out of 27 possible.

In this competition, they have a sequence of 4 losses in the last away matches and they haven't won any of the last 8 away matches. Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 8 of the last 10 matches, but their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 7 of the last 10 matches for this competition. In 17 matches for this competition, they have conceded the first goal 10 times and have only turned the score around in 1.

Excelsior's focus is to stay away from the relegation zone, so they will try to score in as many games as possible. The team will enter the field focusing on defending, but, little by little, they should loosen up. Winning is always the best, but a draw cannot be considered bad for playing away from home. In any case, it is crucial that the team has consistency and quality, as that is the only way they will face Utrecht.

Confirmed Lineup: Stijn van Gassel, Nathan Tjoe-A-On, Redouan El Yaakoubi, Sven Nieuwpoort, Siebe Horemans, Adrian Fein, Julian Baas, Kenzo Goudmijn, Marouan Azarkan, Reda Kharchouch, Couhaib Driouech.
