Worth Mentioning

The last meeting between the two teams ended in a victory for Utrecht, who won 1:0 away from home in October 2022. The last eight head-to-head clashes proved to be unsuccessful for Excelsior, as they managed to claim just three draws for the period. Hosting evidently helped in the previous 10 encounters, with the home side recording 4 wins and preventing their opponents from getting the better of them in 8 out of 10 matches. Both teams scored in three of the last five games, and three produced over 2.5 goals. Within these battles on the pitch, Utrecht limited their rivals to no goals in two clashes, and Excelsior achieved that feat once. The latest five matches ended with three goals on average.
