In 12th round of Holland Eredivisie Nijmegen will host Graafschap. After winning the title in second league in previous season and promotion Nijmegen showed more than decent performances in this season and they are currently at 6th position at the table with 17 points. So far they celebrated five times with two draws and suffered four defeats, and as newly promoted team they are doing very good job in this season. Nijmegen also managed to get trough to a 1/8 finals of the Cup by eliminating Sparta Rotterdam. They are now coming to this match after victory on the road against AZ Alkmaar and for sure will try to continue with positive results in this match where they are favorites and have support of their fans. Nijmegen has positive record against Graafschap, in last five matches they won four times and suffered only one defeat, and Nijmegen won in last nine home matches against them. Goalkeeper Joshua Smits and defender Marcel Appiah are still out of action due to injuries.
Graafschap as also newly promoted side struggling to find their first victory, after 11 rounds they suffered 9 defeats and got two draws. They are currently deep into relegation zone at last position at the table and this will be very long and hard season for them, it will be difficult to stay here in Holland top league since they simple can't compete with even weakest teams in league. Previous season they ended at 6th position in second league and won promotion in play offs but so far they showed very poor performances and the probably won't be able to keep their Eredivisie status. They scored only 9 goals, least in league while conceded 28, most in league, and they have really small chances to achieve some positive result against solid Nijmegen. Midfielders Karim Tarfi and Dean Koolhof and defender Thijs Bouma will miss this match due to injuries.
This will for sure be interesting clash between two newly promoted sides, Nijmegen find their form and they are at very good 6th position, they will for sure go for a victory here, while Graafschap seems desperate, they still seeking for their first victory and I expect routine home victory for this match.
