Second division side NEC Eredivisie clothing welcome VVV-Venlo for the Goffertstadion on Wednesday afternoon, while the two teams seek to progress from the KNVB-Beker clash in the quarterfinals.
The hosts are currently fighting for the promotion of the Eerste Divisie, while the opponent is fighting for relegation in the first division.
NEC is currently in sixth position in the Dutch second division and will try to cause another midweek turnaround.
Rogier MeiherThe team’s men have already eliminated an Eredivisie team, Fortuna Sittard, on their way to the round of 16 of this competition.
Two victories and a loss during the league service followed to maintain the positive sentiment around the club, although the 2-1 loss to MVV last time was a blow to his momentum.
Eniesee will be the underdog coming in for this tie, but he will play without pressure or fear, and that could turn the game in your favor.
VVV has been fighting for form lately, losing consecutive games in recent weeks to be dragged back to the relegation zone.
The cup can be a welcome distraction for them, and they will see it as a great opportunity to advance to the semifinals.
Summer subscription Georgios Giakoumakis has been in excellent shape throughout the season and will be crucial to his team’s opportunities on Wednesday.
The 26-year-old is the top scorer with 22 goals in 21 matches, including six in the last three matches. Stopping him will be critical to NEC’s chances of victory.

All news from the teams
NEC will have to deal without the services of a long-term absentee Joep van der Sluijs, with the teenage winger still not recovering from knee surgery.
He is accompanied on the treatment table by Terell Ondaan, who is suffering from a muscle injury and Mathias De Wolf, after the 18 year old received a knock earlier in the month.
Back Tristan Dekker is the only injury concern for Hans from Koningof the men, after the defender has been away from the last three games.
This means that Koning will likely choose a team with full strength, which is a great opportunity to reach the final four.
Possible initial NEC escalation:
Alblas; El Karouani, Bukusu, Odenthal, Van Rooij; Bruijn, Barreto, Vet, Okita; Janga, Beekman
Possible initial line-up of VVV-Venlo:
Kirschbaum; Guwara, Da Graça, Gelmi, Pachonik; Post, C. Donis; A. Donis, Machach, Van Crooy; Giakoumakis
Probability: NEC 1-2 VVV-Venlo
This should be a fun game for the cup between two teams that wish to have a chance to advance to the semifinals. However, we think that the quality of Giakoumakis will be the difference between the teams and will shoot VVV over opponents of the second division.
