Excelsior team news
There are no major absences for Excelsior head coach Marinus Dijkhuizen with Marouan Azarkan expected to play a key role. The young forward on loan from Feyenoord has been involved in eight goals as well as being their leading creator (five assists). He and his teammates need to be more than good if the Rotterdammers are to reach the second round for a third time across the past four seasons.
The club’s best KNVB Beker finish remains two semi-final appearances in 2014/15 and 1977/78. In the previous round, Excelsior ran out 5-1 winners over MVV Maastricht, each member of their front three (Lazaros Lamprou, Reda Kharchouch and Azarkan) got on the scoresheet with Lamprou and Kharchouch both registering a brace.
AZ team news
Zinho Vanheusden and Bruno Martins Indi are set to miss out for AZ this week. Pascal Jansen is expected to shake up his starting lineup with the likes of Riechedly Bazoer, Myron van Brederode and Hakon Evjen pushing for starts. Vangelis Pavlidis, who has been involved in 15 goals (scoring nine himself and creating a further six), is expected to feature.
The four-time KNVB Beker winners, the most recent success coming in 2013, have reached at least the quarter-final in 10 of the last 11 seasons. During that period they reached back-to-back finals but would lose to Vitesse (2017) and Feyenoord (2018), respectively.
Scoreline prediction: Excelsior 1-3 AZ
