Venue: Stadion Feijenoord (Rotterdam).
Feyenoord brought drama into Eredivisie on Sunday when they dispatched PSV 2-1 on the home patch. It was quite a surprising result if we know the reigning champions have previously won all 13 games of the season. Nicolai Jorgensen and Sam Larsson bagged two quick goals within the opening 33 minutes of the game. Steven Bergwijn could only score the consolation goal late on for the Eredivise pace-setters.
The gap between PSV and Ajax was thus reduced down to two points at the top, while Feyenoord sit ten behind the table-toppers in third. Nevertheless, De Club aan de Maas look to have finally found the right shape. They will head into Thursday’s home clash with VVV with a great chance to take advantage of this game in hand and narrow the gap behind leaders to seven points before weekend’s affairs.
Feyenoord VVV-Venlo: Head-to-head
Feyenoord lead the head to head tie by three wins coming into their 16th encounter with the Good Old.
VVV are unbeaten in past three encounters with Der Club aan de Maas, though (2 wins and 1 draw).
Feyenoord have a brutal home record against VVV with six wins, one draw and one defeat in eight matches in Rotterdam.
Feyenoord VVV-Venlo: Prediction
The visitors will come into this in much lower spirits. They’ve been very easy to break down lately. They will come into this off the back of a tough 4-1 defeat to Heracles on Sunday. The team led by Maurice Steijn conceded two or more goals in all of last four games. They were dreadful travellers of late, losing four and drawing one of past five matches on the road.
It all points out to a one-way street form the first minute of the game. Indeed, we expect Feyenoord to pick up a demolishing victory and back up the huge 2-1 win over defending champions PSV form last weekend.
