Our prediction for this Netherlands Eredivisie match:
VVV-Venlo will be aiming to make amends for back-to-back losses to the likes of Ajax and Groningen when they host Heracles at their Seacon Stadion – De Koel on Saturday evening. Venlo have been struggling at the back of late, and seeing that experienced midfielder Christian Kum remain on the sidelines through suspension, we do not believe that home win should be considered.
The Black and Whites, on the other hand, aim to build on a 4-1 win over Utrecht, and they should take advantage of the current atmosphere in the home team’s dressing room. Heracles are more of a team than Venlo, and even though Bakboord and Blaswich are likely to miss the game with injury, away win should be considered. Kiomourtzoglou is rated doubtful after he was tested positive for coronavirus. A man to watch in the away team will be Rai Vloet, who scored a hat-trick in the victory over Utrecht.
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.

Heracles is a professional Dutch club based in Almelo. The club was formed back in May 1903 and named after Heracles, the demigod son of Zeus. From 1974 to 1998 the club played under the name of SC Heracles ’74. The Heraclieden’s home colours are black and white, while blue is the dominant colour of their away shirt.

In the 2011/12 season they made it to the Dutch Cup final. Heracles faced PSV in the title game, with the Dutch giants proving to be a big catch for the underdogs.
PSV won the game 3-0. In the 2016/17 season Heracles participated in the Europa League, with the team suffering elimination to Arouca in the third qualifying round. Everton is leading the club’s all-time goal-scoring chart with 77 goals.
