Feyenoord – Venlo : Preview & Prediction
In the previous duel between the two in November, the lighting towers failed after 35 seconds so this match should have been postponed. These were definitely working during the last weekend, as Feyenoord became the first team to rescue points against PSV, the current Eredivisie champion, this season.
With that 2-1 triumph, which also had goals in both the first half and the second, the home side ended in shock with the start of PSV, the best of all time in the history of the league. It marked a continuation of a sensational year for Feyenoord at De Kuip, as the Rotterdam team have scored at least two goals in 83% of their last 18 duels at home.
After rescuing a point in his visit to this venue during the last season, the Venlo will need to dispute this meeting with everything to repeat this feat. However, his efficiency as a visitor has not been good, as he has not won in five games as a visitor (E1, P4 – in all competitions). He has not been able to score in three of those defeats.
However, Venlo can be confident based on the fact that coach Maurice Steijn has never lost to Feyenoord coach Giovanni van Bronckhorst (G1, E1), when both have met.
Players to watch: Electric forward Nicolai Jørgensen has scored six goals in his last eight games counting duels for his club and national team, including the first goal in the match against current champion, PSV.
The Venlo midfielder Damian van Bruggen managed to play 90 minutes in the Eredivisie for the first time in his career in the Eredivisie in his last game. He scored his first goal in the Eredivisie in this same game during the previous season.
Statistics to consider: Steijn has also won half (four) of his eight matches as a coach against Feyenoord (G4, E1, P3).
10 of the last 12 Feyenoord games in home condition in the Eredivisie have produced more than 2.5 goals in total.
Feyenoord have scored at least three goals in almost half (10) of the 21 league games they have played over the years against Venlo in Rotterdam.
