In 2014-15, Groningen finished eighth in Dutch Eredivisie play, while Excelsior secure their top flight survival finishing just one place above the bottom three and relegation. Groningen are hoping to perform well in 2015-16 after a positive campaign last term. They'll be disappointed to have collected just one point from their opening two games, but claiming a point against Twente and then losing to PSV away from home are not poor results. An opening day 1-0 away defeat to NEC, albeit courtesy of a wonder goal, was disappointing for Excelsior. They fought back well taking advantage of some poor AZ Alkmaar structure and defence to draw 2-2 in the second game of the season. That isn't a bad result, even if Alkmaar aren't quite the same side as they were in their previous campaign. Over 2.5.
