FC Twente vs VVV-Venlo Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

FC Twente will be looking for their first three points of the new Eredivisie campaign when they welcome the newly-promoted Venlo at the De Grolsch Veste on Saturday afternoon. FC Twente suffered a narrow 2-1 defeat on the road at Feyenoord in the opening round of the season last weekend, with their consolation goal being scored by Fredrik Jensen. On the contrary, the newcomers Venlo managed a comfortable 3-0 home win over Sparta Rotterdam thanks to goals from Clint Leemans, Tarik Tissoudali and Vito van Crooy. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT preview.

Betting Predictions and Tips

There should be goals in this one as both teams have been involved in high-scoring affairs recently. Furthermore, five of the last six meetings in the Eredivisie between these two sides have seen more than three goals scored. Twente didn’t look that bad against Feyenoord last weekend, and I think they are more than capable to get their first victory of the season here.

FC Twente Preview

FC Twente had a terrible pre-season campaign and kicked off the new Eredivisie campaign in a similar manner as they lost 2-1 on the road at reigning champions Feyenoord. The only positive was Fredrik Jensen’s goal after his return to the team following a one-year spell in the Tweede Divisie with Jong FC Twente. Twente have only won once in their last nine games across all competitions, conceding at least two goals in five of these. Twente definitely have a much weaker squad than last season, particularly after the departures of Nick Marsman, Kamohelo Mokotjo, Mateusz Klich and Enes Unal. The latter has played a crucial role in Twente’s performances in the Eredivisie last season as he has been the team’s top scorer with 18 goals and three assists under his belt in his 32 league appearances. Twente endured a mixed run of form on home soil last season, but their recent form at the De Grolsch Veste has seen them lose three and draw two of their last five home fixtures across all competitions. The good news is that Twente are undefeated in their six home meetings with Venlo across all competitions, winning five and drawing once in this term.

FC Twente Team News

There are no fresh injury concerns for FC Twente ahead of this tie.

VVV-Venlo Preview

Venlo won the Eerste Divisie title last season, and they kicked off the new Eredivisie campaign with an impressive 3-0 home win over Sparta Rotterdam. Clint Leemans and Vito van Crooy both get on the scoresheet last weekend, and it seems they are in still in great shape after they bagged 23 goals between them last term. Ralf Seuntjens was Venlo’s top scorer last season with 16 goals under his belt, but he failed to find the back of the net last weekend. Away from home, Venlo have only lost three of their last 15 away games. The most worrying fact is that Venlo are winless in their six visits to the De Grolsch Veste, although they have scored at least once in five of these. Head-to-head, Venlo have only won once in their eleven meetings with FC Twente across all competitions. However, Venlo looked very dangerous in the opening round, and they should be able to avoid the drop this season as there are definitely much weaker teams than them.

VVV-Venlo Team News

Coach Maurice Steijn is unlikely to change a winning formula after Venlo’s solid opening day win.
