Our prediction for this Netherlands Eredivisie match:
Seacon Stadion – De Koel will host Sunday’s football game between VVV-Venlo and Feyenoord. Venlo continue with their habit of producing much better showings at home than on the travels, but they are seen as underdogs in the clash against Feyenoord. Hans de Koning’s troops have been struggling at the back of late, with the team conceding nine goals in total in the previous four league fixtures, and they are unlikely to prevent Feyenoord attackers from scoring.
De Trots van Zuid, on the other hand, failed to turn their dominance into goals in a draw with Heracles. Dick Advocaat’s men aim to keep their title hopes alive, and seeing that Venlo Roy Gelmi is banned for the game, anything but a routine away win would be a major surprise. In their last meeting at Seacon Stadion – De Koel Feyenoord defeated Venlo 3-0.
Highlighted Player (Danny Post):
Born in Amsterdam, Netherlands, Danny Post is a Dutch footballer who plays for VVV-Venlo as a midfielder. Post started his senior career Haarlem, but after making no more than 14 appearances with the club, he joined Groningen in 2009.
The Dutch footballer player only one league game for the Green and White Army as he was loaned to Cambuur in 2010. The next stop in his career was Dordrecht, where he established himself as a first-team regular. After scoring four goals in 50 league appearances for the club, Danny Post moved to VVV-Venlo in 2013. Post made his VVV debut in a goalless draw with Eindhovan on August 2, 2013.
He scored his first goal for the club in a 3-0 win over Achilles ’29 on March 9, 2014. His main position is defensive midfield, but he is capable of producing fine displays as both central midfielder and centre-back. His preferred foot is right.
