Vitesse vs Venlo Prediction
A series of losses and a winless run in the league raises questions of the host’s form in the middle. But Vitesse has their best chance to make a comeback in the campaign, as they are at their strongest suit at home. Besides, the home team has a 20-point lead over the visitors on the table as it stands.
Venlo had a promising win in their last h2h meeting, but it has dropped their form as of late in this season with three defeats in a row. They have still scored in all those losses, which is why the tip for over 2.5 goals and BTTS will come in handy for the goals area in the encounter.
The home win in full-time will probably be the best bet for the punters as the host enjoys the ground advantage, despite their recent winless streak in the schedule. Expect a comeback from Vitesse as they face the visitors sitting at the edge over the relegation zone on the table.
