VVV-Venlo vs Willem II
Date: Sunday, 10 January 2021
Kick-Off at 13.30 UK
Venue: Covebo Stadion De Koel, Venlo.
Battle of the strugglers is on this Sunday in Dutch Eredivisie as VVV Venlo welcomes Willem II. Both teams have underperformed heavily in the first part of the championship, winning enough points just to be close to the relegation zone exit. Squad from Tillburg competed for Europa League last season with a lot of success, so nine points from 14 games is definitely a shocker.
Squad has been winless for five games in a row, but at least they ended 2020 with style by snatching a point from the reigning champions Ajax Amsterdam. In terms of the odds, hosts are the underdogs priced at 3.10 to win the match.
VVV-Venlo vs Willem II Head-to-head
- There were 19 head to head meetings between these two teams in the past. VVV Venlo have minimal 8 to 7 lead in terms of victories so far.
- VVV have never lost home fixture against Willem II, winning four out of eight games.
- Willem II won the first encounter this season played in Tillburg in late November. Full time result was 2-1.
VVV-Venlo vs Willem II Prediction
Even if they somehow manage to avoid relegation this season, VVV are going to be remembered by a negative record. They were humiliated with a 0-13 home loss to Ajax Amsterdam a couple of months ago, which is the main reason for the worst goal difference in the league of -22. Their last four performances in 2020 were awful, losing every single one of them and conceding 12 goals.
The only victory at this stadium happened against Heracles after a lot of drama (3-2 FT). Even though the tradition is not, quality is on side of Willem II for this clash. Squad looked really solid in the last game versus Ajax, so we will stick our necks out and back away win at 2.15 rate.
