Analysis of Excelsior

The home team faces AZ, in a match for the 33 round, which had been delayed, after 8 wins, 6 draws and 19 losses in the league so far. This is a team that is often stronger at home, with the help of its supporters, so they usually make good use of the home advantage, since in the last 30 matches they register 2 wins, 2 draws and 11 losses in away matches; against 5 wins, 4 draws and 6 losses at their stadium. In the last 10 home league matches Excelsior has a record of 3 wins, 2 draws and 5 losses, so they have won 11 points out of 30 possible. They haven't been very strong defensively, since they have suffered goals in all of the last 10 matches for this competition. They have conceded the first goal in 21 of their 33 matches for this competition, and have only turned the score around in 3.

The poor performance presented by Excelsior ended up putting them in the situation in which there are and of course it was not what they wanted. Now they hope to find a way to improve their football to try to stay in the elite. So hopefully in this round they can improve and surprise, after all they need a good result. As they will face a team that come better will need to have a perfect performance to achieve a positive score. In this match will go to the field the best players that are available.

Betting suggestion:

Excelsior are within the relegation zone, and need to score points in this last round, so they will have to present quality football within the four lines. The visitors are making a good campaign and are within the qualifying zone, so they want three more points in this round. We expect a game with a lot of movement and two teams looking for the attacks, so we can have a game for goals. Our bet will be that there will be more than 3.5 goals until the end of the match.
