FC Emmen vs VVV-Venlo Prediction
Emmen had lost 5-1 to Sparta Rotterdam on the road the last match-day. The huge scoreline will surely be a de-motivator, and they need a convincing win in this upcoming home game to get over it.
Meanwhile, Venlo were held to a 0-0 draw at home by Sittard the prior game week. The fact that a relegation-battler (Fortuna Sittard) was able to secure two points against them, will weigh Venlo down.
In terms of result this Saturday, consider that Emmen are on a four-match winning run at home, and that they have lost just twice at home this whole season. Moreover, both these defeats had come back in August.
On the other hand, Venlo lost eight of their prior eleven away fixtures, and have a total of three wins on the road this campaign. Also, one of these wins had come against the dead-last placed Waalwijk. Taking these stats into account, it’s expected that Emmen will register a win this weekend.
However, Venlo had won the reverse fixture, and had recorded 14 of the prior 17 wins. They had also registered seven of the past eight wins at this stadium, and scored twice or more here in five of their former eight trips. Taking these information into consideration, it’s deduced that Venlo will score at least once this Saturday.
