These are our VVV Venlo vs Jong Utrecht predictions and tips:

Jong Utrecht not to lose

Although VVV Venlo are the clear favourites to win this match, their recent form doesn’t inspire a lot of confidence. Rick Kruys’ men have struggled to find their best form of late; they are currently on a 10 match winless streak, with three draws and seven losses. Granted, Jong Utrecht haven’t particularly fared much better. However, they did win their last match vs Groningen, and should be high on morale ahead of this match. Taking everything into account, we believe there’s a lot of value in backing Jong Utrecht to take at least one point from this match.

Goals at both ends

Our second VVV Venlo vs Jong Utrecht prediction is on the BTTS market. It may interest you to know that VVV Venlo have seen their defense breached in all of their last 21 matches; the last time they kept a clean sheet was in the second week of March. Conversely, the hosts have also been consistent when it comes to finding the back of the net. We would like to point out that both teams were on the scoresheet in 12 of VVV Venlo’s last 14 matches. Bearing in mind that both teams scored in Venlo’s last four clashes with Jong Utrecht, we should expect goals at both ends.

A high-scoring affair

Given that VVV Venlo have scored and conceded goals regularly, it’s no surprise that we’re taking the over option for this match. The hosts have been involved in their fair share of high-scoring games; as four of their last five matches featured at least three goals. Likewise, the last four skirmishes between these teams saw just over three goals scored per game on average; and on that note, we are fairly confident that these teams will score up to three goals between them.

VVV Venlo

VVV Venlo have been going through a rough patch these past few weeks; they suffered seven losses in their last eight matches, and have no wins in their last 10 games. Rick Kruys will hope to steer his team back on course as they host Jong Utrecht on Friday.

Jong Utrecht

On the other hand, Jong Utrecht’s winless streak came to an end with a 1-0 victory over Groningen last weekend; they had no wins in 11 prior games, with four draws and seven losses. As Ivar Van Dinteren’s men make the trip to the Covebo Stadion, they’ll hope to string up back-to-back wins for the first time since January.
