Cambuur is only team in Holland league without victory in this season. They will now host Nijmegen in 16th round of Dutch Eredivisie. Cambuur is currently at 17th position at the table, with 7 points from previous 15 rounds. They have only two points more than last placed Graafschap and if they don't change something and improve their form, for sure won't be able to get out of relegation zone. Cambuur ended previous season at 12th position at the table, but at the end of that campaign they dropped their form and still are struggling to find their first victory. In 15 rounds they scored 15 goals and conceded amazing 41 goal and they have worst defense in entire league. They kept a clean sheet only once in this season in duel against Twente at home. Cambuur didn't had much luck and in first round of the Cup run to PSV and were eliminated. They are now almost desperate, in last 20 rounds of Eredivisie they have failed to celebrate and it will be very hard to do that in this match. In previous round Cambuur suffered convincing victory on the road against Willem II, team that is struggling to avoid dropping into relegation zone, they had a ball possession but didn't created opportunities and showed almost nothing. Defenders Marlon Pereira and Calvin Mac-Inosch and goalkeeper Leonard Nienhuis won't be able to help their team in this match due to injuries.
Nijmegen on the other side after only one season in second league managed to find their ticket for return into Holland top league. They showed great performances in previous campaign and won the title in Erste division and direct promotion. Now after 7 rounds are at more than decent 7th position at the table with 24 points. Nijmegen coming to this match after draw against Zwolle in previous round while before that suffered narrow defeat against Vitesse on the road. They must try to get back on the track and for sure will go for a victory here. They suffered five defeats so far and most of them were against teams from upper part of the table such as PSV, Ajax. Nijmegen showed decent performances in this season and for sure are satisfied with results so far, if they continue in same manner maybe can reach qualifications for Europa league for the next season. They managed to progress into 1/8 finals of the Cup by eliminating Sparta Rotterdam with convincing victory at home 4:0. Last time they faced with Cambuur two seasons ago and suffered one defeat and got one draw but they are now in much better shape while Cambuur is only team in league without single victory. Goalkeepers Joshua Smits and Hannes Thor Halldorsson and forward Mihai Roman will stay out of action due to a long term injuries.
Only two rounds left before winter break in Holland and Cambuur is still without victory, they must try to change something in their squad but it will be very hard for them to avoid relegation, while Nijmegen on the other side as newly promoted team is doing fine job, they are favorites and for sure will go for a victory to retain their position, I think that Nijmegen is much closer to a victory here.
