VVV-Venlo vs Utrecht Predictions & Match Preview

VVV-Venlo vs Utrecht
Netherlands – Eredivisie
Date: Wednesday, 3rd April 2019
Kick-off at 17.30 UK/ 18.30 CET
Venue: Seacon Stadion – De Koel (Venlo).

As of now, Utrecht is the only team in the Eredivisie to not experience a loss in the last five league match-days. Even the mighty PSV and Ajax cannot boast of such a record. Utrecht, with their fine form, is rightfully trying to consolidate a spot in the playoffs, and maybe even the lone direct-promotion spot to the Europa.

Venlo has been going through a rough patch, and consequentially, has been lowered down the pecking order, in the priority list for representation to Europe. They have returned just two wins in their last nine games, and since the turn of New Year, they have struggled to score at home.

VVV-Venlo vs Utrecht Prediction

Utrecht is winless in their last seven matches and won their last three away ties in a row. They are also the only side in the league to not lose a tie in the last five attempts. Venlo, on the other hand, lost three of their last five home ties and returned a single win in their last six overall games, and two from their last nine.

Importantly, Utrecht has been unbeaten against this opponent in league fixtures for more than ten years. At this venue, Utrecht holds a 100% unbeaten record in h2h ties. Furthermore, eight of the last nine h2h wins and five of the last six at this venue were registered by Utrecht.

Expect the top-tier team to strengthen their hold over the playoffs with another fine showing. In addition, count on Utrecht, who has scored three or more goals in three of their last four fixtures and in six of the last nine away ties, to record the first goal of the game.
