Full predictions, stats & game poll for the Excelsior v FC Oss match are shown here – as well as up-to-date odds.
Excelsior will play in this fixture coming off the back of a 0-0 Eerste Divisie drawn game vs Go Ahead Eagles.
Their more recent scorelines shine a light on the fact that not much more can be done by the Excelsior backline. Roodzwarten have been miserly, with the tally of goals that have flown into the back of their net over the course of their previous six outings standing at 3. Historical results aside, we must now wait to see whether that trend shall be maintained in this upcoming match.
Ahead of this clash, Excelsior are unbeaten in the league by FC Oss in their previous 3 games.
Since being defeated in their last game at the hands of De Graafschap in Eerste Divisie action, FC Oss and their travelling supporters will be hoping that they can get a better result in this one.
Ralf Seuntjens (78') and Danny Verbeek (87') scored for De Graafschap.
During their six most recent matches, Klaas Wels’s FC Oss have had reason to celebrate scoring a total of 6 times, giving them a goals per game average of 1.

Excelsior boss Marinus Dijkhuizen has zero fitness worries at all before this match with a fully healthy squad ready to go.
Team News: FC Oss
Thanks to a mainly available squad, there is only a single fitness problem for the FC Oss boss Klaas Wels to be concerned with. Philippe Rommens (Surgery) won’t be playing here.
We feel that Excelsior will most probably convert a lot of goal-scoring opportunities.
In contrast, FC Oss may well struggle to score a goal of their own although we do see them hitting back at some stage.
We’re therefore anticipating a controlled 3-1 victory for Excelsior by the time that the referee blows the final whistle.

Regarding the current betting odds on the full-time result market, the win for Excelsior is best priced at 1.485, a wager on the draw is 4.78 and putting your money on the winner to be FC Oss will get you 6. These are the best of the market prices available right now.
