Emmen vs VVV-Venlo
Date: Friday, 26 October 2018
Kick-Off at 19:00 UK / 20:00 CET
Venue: De Oude Meerdijk (Emmen).
VVV returned on the winning ways after two straight losses as they saw off Den Haag 2-0 on the home patch last weekend. The victory brought them back to 5th place in the league ladder and they will have a nice chance to stay there after the Matchday No 10.
The Good Old travel to De Oude Meerdijk to take on league newcomers Emmen in the first game of the round. The hosts suffered a demolishing 6-0 defeat to the reigning champions and current leaders PSV after the international break. Such a painful loss only continued their dreadful spell of for. The team led by Dick Lukkien looks particularly poor at the back as they conceded as many as three goals in a six-goal draw to fellow strugglers Fortuna Sittard beforehand. It makes nine shipped goals in last two Eredivisie outings for them.
Emmen vs VVV-Venlo: Head-to-head
VVV lead the head to head tie by two wins coming into their 33rd meeting with Emmen, but this will be their inaugural clash in the top flight of Dutch football.
The Good Old were much more successful in the most recent head to head history as they head into this with three wins and a draw in last four outings against Emmen.
Both teams were on the scoresheet in five of last seven head to head encounters.
Emmen vs VVV-Venlo: Prediction
VVV will enter the game as form favourites and we do find the value in backing them to clinch the spoils against the struggling opposition at the odds of 2.37. Backing the visitors to notch two or more goals on the evening looks to be even the safer option knowing about the lack of meticulousness in Emmen’s back line.
We also believe in the continuation of the high-scoring head to head trend as you can back goals at both ends at 1.61.
