Our prediction for this Netherlands Eredivisie match:
Sunday’s football game at Seacon Stadion – De Koel pits together VVV – Venlo and Willem II, the two teams who are level on points in the Eredivisie table. Both sides are eager to return to winning ways in the Dutch top flight, and, no doubt, a close relegation six-pointer is on the cards. Venlo are on a four-game losing run in the national championship, with the team conceding 12 goals in total in those matches.
The Tricolores have been struggling to find their form of late as well, but they did well to hold star-studded Ajax to a draw in their last league match. Since Willem II regained a much-needed confidence before the break, we believe the punters can find value in betting on the visiting team. It has to be noted that the Tricolores are eyeing their first away win of the season.
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 (Willem II):
Based in Tilburg, Netherlands, Willem II is a professional football club that competes in the Eredivisie. The Tricolores were founded back in August 1896 under the name of Tilburgia, but the club’s first big success came in the 1915/16 season when they won the national championship.

When it comes to KNVB Cup, the Tricolores have won it on two occasions (1943/44, 1962/63). Willem II are well known for their white shirts with red and blue strips, while their away kit is mainly mint with dark navy accents.
