Willem II will win

Willem II – VVV Venlo Match Prediction | 22-09-2019 13:45

However, the Spanish striker remains at the club for the foreseeable future and with him in the side Willem II always pose a threat going forward. Keeping hold of goal machine Fran Sol was always going to prove difficult this summer after the 26-year old former Real Madrid and Villarreal striker netted 16 goals in 32 Eredivisie appearances last season. Willem II survived last season because of their ability to score goals, and even scored more in total than two of the teams that finished in the top eight, Den Haag and Heerenveen.

A final friendly against Aris ended in a 1-0 defeat and has left some questioning whether or not Willem II are ready for the start of what is bound to be another testing season in the Eredivisie. The Eredivisie side hammered Dongen 9-0, but were put in their place by a Sparta Rotterdam side that suffered relegation from the top flight of Dutch football last season, beating Willem II 2-0. Much like last season, Willem IIs pre-season has seen mixed results after a 9-0 win was followed by two defeats.

VVV finished one place above the relegation places last season and the transfers both in and out of the club suggest its going to be another tough season for Venlo based club. However, VVV have a decent record against Willem II and will fancy their chances of getting the season off to a winning start, especially if their hosts defend as generously as they did so often last season.

Were confident that both teams will score and that Saturdays match will feature over 2.5 goals. Three of Willem IIs last six matches have produced over 2.5 goals, and two of those games saw both teams score. Two of VVVs last three matches have seen both teams score, while two of their last four matches have featured over 2.5 goals. As for a final score, were backing Willem II to come out on top with a 3-2 victory. Last season both teams struggled to defend properly and didnt keep many clean sheets, with both of their encounters during the 2017/18 campaign producing over 2.5 goals.

*Ligue 1

They have played a lot of Head-To-Head games, with Venlo being the better rival most of the time. They both play in a similar fashion this season with an identical number of points. An interesting thing is that they have almost the same goal ratio, with Willem II scoring 9 and conceding 11, and Venlo scoring 9 and conceding 12. They both play an open type of football, so a goal barrage is something we see quite often at their games. This will be a battle of the teams who are in the middle of the table. Based on all of that, we can see that there are no strong favorites in this game. By looking at all of this, I am not so sure about Willem winning this game that easy, so a perfect bet is both teams to score. However, the bookmakers have listed Willem II as a clear one, which is not something I completely agree with. Both Willem II and Venlo have 9 points from 6 games.

They have some problems with injuries, as Drost, Jakubiak, and Osman are again out of this game. They have to continue to run their style of play, and they can potentially be in the first 7 on the table when the season ends, which would lead them to the Europe qualifiers. Two losses in a row against Feyenoord and Heracles gave them a headache, but that is not something to be afraid of. As it was already said, they are in the middle of the table, if we want to be exact, they are currently eighth in the Eredivisie.

Following routine victories over Wittenhorst and De Treffers, VVV then beat freshly relegated FC Twente 2-1 before securing a 1-1 draw with Bundesliga side Werder Bremen. Pre-season couldnt have gone much better for VVV, with last seasons fifteenth placed Eredivisie side remaining unbeaten in all of their five friendly matches. Last weeks 2-0 victory over Volendam concluded what was a very successful pre-season for VVV, but the big question is, can they transfer that form into the Eredivisie this weekend?

Willem II at home should be solid team, so I expect their win vs Venlo. Willem II lost last 2 matches. They have 3-0-3 and 9:12. In last match they won 2:1 vs Groningen. Willem II - Venlo, Netherlands, Eredivisie (1st tier)Willem II is 8th on the table with 9 points from 6 played matches. They have 3-0-3 record and 9:11 goals difference. At home they have 1-0-2 and 2:4. Away from home they have 1-0-2 and 3:6. In last match they lost 4:1 vs Heracles. Venlo won 2 of last 3 matches. Venlo is 9th on the table with also 9 points.

Willem II vs Venlo prediction arrives ahead of the Eredivisie 7th round matchup. For this game, I will try to provide the best betting tips and correct score predictions based on my analysis of these two teams. The game will be played on September 21st, at the Euroborg Stadium in Groningen, Netherlands. These two teams are positioned in the lower half of the table, where every point is important and crucial.

If recent ties are any indication at all, expect both teams to share the goal-scoring burden. Its very highly likely that we are in for a goal-ridden game. Two of their last three matches at this venue had five or more goals, and by all means, wait for at least three goals in the game, and at least one before half time.
