Almere City vs Excelsior: Eredivisie 2023/24 Live Stream, Form Guide, Head to Head, Schedule, Fixture and Probable Lineups

Separated by only one point and residing in the lower half of the Eredivisie standings, Almere City and SBV Excelsior are set to face off at the Yanmar Stadion on Friday. Recently, the visitors have surpassed their opponents, securing the 11th position in the Dutch top flight. Meanwhile, Almere City finds themselves just two places above the relegation zone, reflecting the closely contested nature of the bottom half of the division.

Almere City enters Friday’s match with the determination to bounce back from their recent defeat and secure a victory that would create more distance between them and the Eredivisie relegation zone. After a challenging start following their promotion, Almere City showed promise with an emphatic 5-0 win against Vitesse Arnhem and a subsequent 1-0 triumph over Volendam. Despite a goalless draw against Fortuna Sittard and a recent 2-0 defeat to PSV Eindhoven, Almere City remains focused on building on their recent improvement under Alex Pastoor. Sitting just below mid-table, they aspire to climb to the 14th spot with a return to winning ways.

On the other side, Excelsior is also aiming to distance themselves from the relegation threat as they face Almere City. After a promising start to the season, they faced a dip in form with a 10-match winless run, dropping to 15th place. However, a recent 3-0 victory over Heerenveen and a 1-1 draw with Utrecht have put them in 11th place, six points above the relegation zone. With Marinus Dijkhuizen at the helm, Excelsior aims to continue their positive momentum, seeking another positive result to extend their unbeaten streak to three games on Friday.
