Venlo – Willem II (Pick, Prediction, Preview)

Venlo	–	Willem II    (Pick, Prediction, Preview) Preview



VVV Venlo and Willem II play in the Seacon Stadion De Koel in a duel of the 13th round of the Eredivisie. There is only one recent direct showdown between these two teams, on 24-01-2014, which ended with VVV Venlo winning by (0-1). The home / away condition deserves special attention, since although this is a match between 12th and 16th overall, this is in fact a confrontation between the 13th place in home games and the 12th as a visitor.

After 3 wins, 5 draws and 4 losses, the home team is in 12th place, having won 14 points. In the final match, they drew 1-1 with Feyenoord (1-1), having drawn from home in a game against NAC Breda (0-0). Curiously, this is a team that has achieved better results outside of the home, having won 9 points as a visitor and only 5 in their stadium. For the championship, VVV Venlo had 5 points in 18 chances, after 1 win, 2 draws and 3 defeats in the last 6 games he played in his stadium.

In this competition, you have not won any of the last 5 games in your stadium. The team conceded goals to their opponents in 8 of their last 10 games in this competition, so they have not been very strong defensively. This is a team that scores a few times first: just opened the scoring in 3 of their last 12 games by the Eredivisie, these 3 reached the break in advantage in all and won in the late 90 ‘in all. In 12 games in this competition, he suffered the first goal 8 times and never managed to turn the score. In the last 5 home games in all competitions there are 1 periods in the standings: he suffered 4 of his 8 goals between the minutes (61’-75 ‘).

The team is in twelfth place on the national league table with 14 points drawn in 12 games played so far, with three wins, five draws and four defeats. They scored thirteen goals, conceded seventeen goals and have the negative balance of four goals.

With a campaign that oscillates very much between ups and downs, he tries to adopt a defensive style of play against his opponents and in this way they try to stay as far as possible from the relegation zone. This style of play is not because their defense is consistent but because of the lack of offensive quality of the team that arrives in this round as one of the worst attacks of the championship. And so, when they manage to get some positive result in their clashes, most of the time it is by little difference of goals. Another point to highlight is the large number of draws that it presents during the course of the competition. Playing at home in the National League is a poor manager and has not won for five matches.

His goal in the competition is to remain in the elite division of the country this season, and for that the victory is very important because with it, it will be further away from the bottom of the table. A draw is not the best scenario, as you face a team that is below the table at home, and a loss will be a poor result and will make you very close to the relegation zone. His last match was playing away from home against the Feyenoord team and was in the 1-1 draw.

The visiting team is currently in 16th place with 9 points, after 3 wins, 1 draw and 8 losses. In the penultimate match, he lost out to AZ Alkmaar by (3-2). In the last match, they tied at home to Sparta Rotterdam by (2-2). This is a team that normally achieves more positive results as a visitor than at home, having won 6 points away and in their stadium, with 9 goals scored and 12 goals conceded at home, against 6 goals scored and 15 conceded. In the last 6 away games for the championship, Willem II has 2 wins and 4 losses, having won 6 points out of 18. Defensive solidity has not been his strong point, having conceded goals in 9 of the last 10 games but his attack has scored regularly as he has scored goals in 8 of the last 10 games for this competition. In 12 games in this competition, he only managed 1 turn on the scoreboard in the 7 games in which he conceded the first goal. In the last 8 away games for all competitions there has been 1 period that stands out: scored 4 of his 10 goals between minutes (31’-45 ‘).

The team is in 15th place on the national league table with 10 points drawn in 12 games played to date have had three wins, a draw and eight defeats. They scored fifteen goals, conceded twenty-seven goals and have the negative balance of twelve goals.

With the worst defense of the league alongside the Breda team and with an ineffective offensive system, the team arrives in that round at the edge of the relegation zone. Area that was the greater part of the championship and after the tie in the last round managed to leave her. It is a team that is advancing in the Dutch Cup, but in the National League their campaign is very irregular.
