VVVenlo Prediction

Venlo currently sit in 7th place in the Eredivisie but are holding on by a single thread as they have a slender one point advantage over Heracles and just two points ahead of tonight’s opponents Willem II ahead of this important clash on Saturday night.

Venlo have managed to record just two league wins from their last nine league matches which were back-to-back wins against PEC Zwolle and Den Haag, but recent defeats to Heracles, Feyenoord, Vitesse, Emmen and Ajax, the latter being a heavy 6-0 thrashing away from home have put the hosts on red alert.

That said, Venlo possess a reasonable home record that stands at 4-3-2 15/9 which includes just one defeat from their last nine matches on home soil. The hosts have scored in 7 of these 9 matches with midfielder Susic (5 goals) along with forwards Mlapa (7 goals) and Joosten (5 goals) being the most likely to notch for the hosts here.

 

Key-Facts – VVVenlo v Willem II

  • Venlo have lost just 1 of their last 9 matches at home in the Eredivisie
  • Venlo have scored in 7 of their 9 home matches this season
  • Willem II have scored in 9 of their 10 away matches

 

Willem II Prediction

Onto Willem II, and the visitors are among the chasing pack that are desperately trying to claw their way into the top seven and a Europa League qualifying play-off spot come the end of the Dutch domestic season.

Recent form has been pretty inconsistent though as three wins on the trot against Emmen, NAC Breda and Utrecht have been book-ended by defeats to Den Haag and Groningen, both of which were at their Koning Willem II Stadion in Tilberg.

However, results on the road have outperformed those of home as the visitors hold a useful looking record of 5-2-3 17/18 which includes winning their last four away matches on the trot with victories gained at PEC Zwolle, AZ Alkmaar, Emmen and Utrecht.

In addition, Willem II have scored in 9 of their 10 away matches to date with midfielder Crowley (3 goals) and forward Avdijaj (4 goals) providing the bulk of the goals for the visitors to date.

Betting Tips Verdict

So, Venlo have been fairly consistent at home while Willem II have performed better on their travels, so we should see both teams scoring in this encounter.
