Our prediction for this Netherlands Eredivisie match:
Feyenoord will be looking to make amends for a 4-2 loss to AZ Alkmaar when they take on Venlo in the Eredivisie round 25. Feyenoord are eyeing their third consecutive win at home ground, and we are positive that they will adopt an attack-minded approach in Saturday’s football match. The Rotterdammers aim to keep their Champions League hopes alive, and they should take advantage of Venlo’s poor away record.
The Yellow Black Army are on a three-game losing run on the road in the Eredivisie, with the team losing to Vitesse in the Dutch Cup on Tuesday evening as well. Feyenoord will not have a better chance than this to get back on course, and we predict that the hosts are going to pick up all three points from the match. In the first half of the season Feyenoord recorded a routine 3-0 win over Venlo.

Born in Apeldoorn, Netherlands on December 19, 1991, Steven Berghuis is a Dutch winger who plays for Feyenoord in the Eredivisie. Berghuis played for the likes of Vitesse/AGOVV, WSV Apeldoorn, and Go Ahead Eagles during his youth career before joining Twente in 2009.
The 183-cm-tall footballer continued playing for the Reds at senior level. After ending his loan spell with VVV-Venlo, Steven Berghuis joined AZ Alkmaar in the summer of 2012, and three years later signed a deal with the Premier League club Watford. After making no more than nine appearances in the English top flight, Berghuis moved to Feyenoord in August 2016, and he has been playing De club aan de Maas ever since.
His main position is right winger, but he is capable of producing fine displays as both left winger and attacking midfielder as well. He made his Netherlands debut on May 27, 2016 in a 1-1 draw with the Republic of Ireland.
Highlighted Team (Venlo):
Based on the Dutch-German border, VVV-Venlo is a Dutch football club that plays in the Eredivisie. The club was founded on February 7, 1903 under the name of Venlose Voetbal Vereniging, and it’s considered one of the oldest clubs in Dutch football.
VVV Venlo are well known for their yellow shirts and black shorts, and, as a result, they are often called the Yellow Black Army. Venlo play home games at De Koel, the stadium which is able to hold up to 8,000 spectators.
Japan international Keisuke Honda is one of the most notable international footballers who played for the club. However, Honda is not the only Japanese player to wear the yellow jersey as the likes of Maya Yoshida, Robert Cullen, and Yuki Otsu played for the club as well. Roda JC are seen as one of the club’s main rivals, with the two clubs facing each other in the Limburgse derby.
