Our prediction for this Netherlands Eredivisie match:
VVV-Venlo and Vitesse take on each other at Seacon Stadion – De Koel on Wednesday evening. Venlo made a slow start to the season, but they have been showing signs of improvement of late. Hans de Koning’s troops recorded three wins in the previous four league fixtures, but they will have a big fish to fry in the midweek clash against Vitesse. There are no absentees in the home team ahead of Matchday 19.
The Vitas, on the other hand, look unstoppable at the moment, with the team eyeing their sixth consecutive win in all competitions. Vitesse are high on spirits ahead of the trip to Venlo, and despite the home team’s fine form, we believe that punters can find value in betting on the high-flying visitors. Both Hernandez and Tronstad are out of contention with injuries, but there are no suspended players in the away team.
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.
Highlighted Team (Vitesse):
Nicknamed Vitas, the proud of Gelderland, Vitesse are a Dutch football club based in Arnhem. Vitesse compete in the Dutch Eredivisie and they have yet to win the national championship. However, they finished as runners-up in the Dutch elite division on five occasions (1897–98, 1902–03, 1912–13, 1913–14, 1914–15), while clinching third place in the standings in the 1997/1998 season.
Vitesse did remarkably well to win the 2016/2017 Dutch Cup title, with the team beating AZ Alkmaar in the final at De Kuip in Rotterdam. As a result, the Vitas booked their place in the Europa League group stages where they face the likes of Lazio, Nice and Zulte-Waregem.
Vitesse are well known for their yellow jerseys with black stripes, while the club’s away colour is black. GelreDome is the home ground of the Dutch team and the capacity of the venue is 21.248.
