VVV-Venlo vs PEC Zwolle Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

The newcomers Venlo will be aiming to get back to winning ways in the Eredivisie when they welcome PEC Zwolle at the Seacon Stadion De Koel on Sunday at lunchtime. Venlo managed a creditable 1-1 away draw at Vitesse last weekend, with Clint Leemans scoring the equaliser from the spot in the stoppage time. Meanwhile, PEC Zwolle won 2-1 at home over Heracles thanks to a brace from Youness Mokhtar. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news, match stats and odds all in our SBAT preview.

Betting Predictions and Tips - Match Odds

Both teams showed signs of life in the Eredivisie recently and both will be looking to continue their good run of form. Venlo are definitely the biggest surprise of this early part of the campaign, but PEC Zwolle have also been doing well recently and are on ten points at the moment. I’m backing Zwolle to grab at least one point from this trip as they are undefeated in the last six visits to the Seacon Stadion De Koel and won the most recent three of these.

Venlo v PEC Zwolle - Correct score betting tips and odds

Zwolle have scored at least two goals in three of their five league games so far this season, while Venlo have conceded twice in their most recent home defeat at the hands of Ajax. In addition, Zwolle have netted two goals in two of their last three visits to the Seacon Stadion De Koel, so I think that Zwolle to win 2-1 look great value at odds 10/1.

Venlo v PEC Zwolle - Total Goals predictions and odds

This clash could be an entertaining affair, but it also could be a snooze fest. The last three meetings between these two sides have seen more than three goals scored, but prior to this run, they have seen few than two goals scored in three matches. I’m going with the most recent record between these two teams and I’m fancying Over 2.5 goals at odds 8/11.

Our Total Goals Prediction: Over 2.5 goals at odds 8/11 with Bet365

VVV-Venlo saw over 1.5 goals in 8 out of their last 10 games played

VVV-Venlo Preview

Venlo’s form in this early part of the Eredivisie campaign has been a complete mixed bag with two wins, two draws and one defeat in five rounds. The newcomers come into this clash on the back of a three-game winless streak in the Eredivisie, although the most recent two games ended in draws. Despite the recent struggle, Venlo still sit in a comfortable 9th spot in the league table with eight points under their belts, just two points behind the top seven. Venlo looked perfect at the back throughout this early part of the season, as they conceded just five goals in five rounds. At home, Venlo won 3-0 at home in their first home league game, but they lost 0-2 against Ajax in the second fixture. The bad news is that Venlo are winless in the last six home meetings with PEC Zwolle across all competitions, conceding two goals in four of these. Clint Leemans and Vito van Crooy have been Venlo’s most dangerous players in front of goal so far this season, as the pair bagged four goals and two assists between them. Lennar Thy has also played a vital part in Venlo’s performance throughout this early part of the campaign, providing three assists for the team.

Roel Janssen is the only doubtful player for Venlo ahead of this clash.

PEC Zwolle Preview

PEC Zwolle, on the other hand, started the new Eredivisie campaign brightly with two victories and one draw in the opening three rounds. They have suffered a 3-0 defeat on the road at Ajax after the International break, but bounced back with a 2-1 home win over Heracles at the weekend. Zwolle find themselves in 7th spot in the Eredivisie table tied on ten points with Ajax and Vitesse, just two points adrift of the current leaders Feyenoord. PEC looked solid going forward in this early part of the season as they scored at least two goals in three of their five games. Youness Mokhtar has been in fantastic shape in this early part of the campaign as he is currently the team’s topscorer with four goals in his five league appearances. Piotr Parzyszek and Bram van Polen have also enjoyed a decent start to the season, as the pair bagged two goals and two assists between them. PEC Zwolle have failed to win a single league game on the road in this early part of the campaign, but they come into this tie on the back of a 0-5 victory at De Meern in the KNVB Beker Cup in midweek. Prior to this result, Zwolle were winless in four away games across all competitions. The good news is that Zwolle are undefeated in the last six visits to the Seacon Stadion De Koel, scoring two goals in four of these.
