Our prediction for this Netherlands Eredivisie match:
Following a 1-0 loss at Heerenveen where both Pachonik and Janssen saw red cards, Venlo will be looking to get back on course in the Eredivisie when they host Den Haag at their Seacon Stadion – De Koel. The Yellow-Black Army have been having their ups and downs at the start of the season, and seeing that the aforementioned duo is banned for Saturday’s football match, we are not tempted to put our money on the hosts.
Den Haag, on the other hand, made a slow start to the season, with the team suffering a loss in each of their first three league fixtures. De Ooievaars suffered a 4-2 loss at Feyenoord on Matchday 3, but there were some positivities in their display in the De Kuip clash. Anyhow, a close encounter is on the cards at Seacon Stadion – De Koel, and the two teams are likely to share the spoils.
