VVV-Venlo vs PEC Zwolle
Date: Friday, 21 December 2018
Kick-Off at 19:00 UK / 20:00 CET
Venue: Seacon Stadion De Koel (Venlo).
VVV are looking to bounce back from a streak of five-game winless thread on Friday evening when they host Zwolle in the first game of the Matchday No 17 in Eredivisie. The hosts indeed had a very complicated schedule in the last couple of weeks which saw them play the likes of AZ, Heracles, Feyenoord, Groningen and Vitesse.
The clash against Zwolle should finally give Maurice Steijn’s men an opportunity to return to winning ways. The hosts still sit in the top half of the ladder in spite of the mentioned thread. They are generally very tough to beat in front of the home crowd where the Good Old won three, drew three and lost just one of seven league games conceding no more than six goals in the process. VVV have the third best defensive record in home matches in the entire league.
VVV-Venlo vs PEC Zwolle: Head-to-head
The draw was by far the most common of outcomes in the history of H2H games between these two likes at De Koel.
As many as 8 of 15 matches in Venlo ended without a winner. VVV won 2 and lost 5 of remaining seven against Bluefingers in front of the home crowd.
Each of last five head to head outings produced goals at both ends.
Teams shared spoils in two 1-1 draws when they met each other in the previous term of Eredivisie.
VVV-Venlo vs PEC Zwolle: Prediction
Zwolle are just one point above the red zone coming into this fixture. They lost four, drew one and won one (against the rock-bottomed De Graafschap) of last six league affairs. The team led by Johannes van ‘t Schip drew 0-0 at home to fellow strugglers NAC Breda at home last weekend. It was a generally poor performance against the team which has previously claimed no more than one point in seven away fixtures in the league.
The value is massive with VVV to win at the odds of 2.37 and we will take the home win all day long in these circumstances.
