Groningen vs VVV-Venlo
Netherlands – Eredivisie
Date: Sunday, 3rd March 2019
Kick-off at 13.30 UK/ 14.30 CET
Venue: Euroborg (Groningen).
Groningen has a great opportunity to make a leap towards their coveted European spots, as they take on the battered Venlo. The latter may be enjoying a single-point, as well as a single-spot advantage over the other, but all of it could be rectified with a win in this tie.
Groningen has been having a good stretch of games in the league, and especially at home. Meanwhile, Venlo’s recent record is definitely not pretty to look at. They have scored just a single goal in their last four games, and on the road, they suffered massive back-to-back defeats against Alkmaar and Ajax.
Going even further on their form, in the last five months, the team has won just once away from home.

Groningen vs VVV-Venlo Prediction
The hosts hold a 100% unbeaten record against this opponent at home, and except for two draws, it becomes a 100% winning record. In overall meetings, Groningen has registered six of the last seven wins also.
At home, the team won five of the last six games and scored in the last eight in a row. They also managed two or more goals in four of the last six attempts. Meanwhile, Venlo lost four of their last five fixtures, and on the road, lost six of the last seven. Furthermore, the team could record just a single win in their last ten attempts.
