When a team at the promotion zone and a side residing at the edge of relegation in the table, the stakes will be recognizable for the punters as to who to go with. In this case, showing a better form overall, Utrecht is probably the favorites in the clash.
Utrecht has lost only two times in their last ten away fixtures in major competitions. Both these losses were against stronger teams like Ajax and Vitesse. So, John Brom will not be concerned about his team’s away form in the match. Moreover, they are unbeaten in the prior five trips on the road.
Hence, it would be hard for Venlo to keep the visitors at bay in the clash. Along with that, Venlo has no been in their best suit at home. The host has lost five of their last nine home matches overall. Besides, they are winless in the last two attempts at home.
Based on these facts, Venlo will have a hard time holding the guest at their half. Hence, Utrecht will create more opportunities in the game and eventually take all three points more likely. So, Utrecht will be the best bet for the punters in the clash.
