Excelsior vs VVV-Venlo
Date: Saturday, 29th September 2018
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Stadion Woudestein (Rotterdam).
VVV hopes to extend their unbeaten run when they travel to face Excelsior Stadion Woudestein on Saturday night. VVV have been quite good so far, except for the defeat against Ajax, they are yet to lose another game in all competitions.
They started the season with an away win against Willem, they lost the next game against Ajax but have since won 3 in all competitions and drawn twice.
VVV have also kept clean sheets in their last competitive games and have scored 3 goals in each game. We think they will be tough for Excelsior to handle.
It hasn’t been rosy for Excelsior who have managed just 1 competitive win in this season. 50% of their Eredivisie games so far this season have ended in draw while they have lost 3 competitive games.
Excelsior were not able to win at home in the midweek KNVB cup, they lost 3-2 to NEC. The game was filled with drama featuring 3 goals from spot kick an own goal, 1 red card and 3 yellow cards. A home win on Saturday will surely lift their spirit.

The last 4 meetings between the two sides have recorded 2 wins for each team and they all won away from home.
Excelsior vs VVV-Venlo: Prediction
VVV are in a better shape than Excelsior, they are unbeaten in last 5 competitive games. Meanwhile Excelsior have failed to win a game at home this season so we really backing VVV to win this game.
We don’t think the game will feature lots goals as we expect few goals in the game.
