Free Match Tips from Punditfeed for Zwolle vs VVV

After consecutive winless games at home, VVVvVenlo makes the visit to Zwolle for the next league engagement in Eerste Divisie on Friday, 20 January. The Bluefingers will be focused to stretch their winning pattern to cement their top position on the table.

Both Teams to Score: Yes

Venlo has managed to keep successive clean sheets in the recent visits but Zwolle looks to have enough preparation as they won the last six league outings in a row. On the scoring end, the  Good Old has also hit the target in all of the last five meetings. The teams have also shared the successive BTTS patterns in the last five meetings against each other at the home of Zwolle. So we predict both teams to score at the same time in this game.

Over 3.5 Goals

Zwolle scored three goals in each of the last two league outings and they added a total of 14 goals in the previous five attempts in Eerste Divisie. Venlo has also been admirable in this area of the field and rattled the net nine times in the last five attempts. The Good Old also allowed two goals in the previous attempt. Moreover, all of the previous five H2H meetings of these teams have ended with over 3.5 goals. So we can expect the teams to feature a high-scoring total in this game.

Correct Score: 3-2 to Zwolle

Zwolle has scored more than once in most of the recent games and hit the target three times per game in three of the previous five league outings at home. However, the team has also kept only one clean sheet in that course and allowed seven goals. On the other hand, Yellow Black Army has also rattled the net at least twice in four of the last five visits. So we expect this game to feature a 3-2 scoreline in the favour of the home side.

Zwolle vs VVV Fixture Preview

PEC Zwolle

The Bluefingers travelled to Heracles in the last game and hammered them with a 0-3 result thanks to goals from Samir Lagsir, Thomas van den Belt, and Lennart Thy. FC Zwolle will be looking to continue their winning streak and maintain their top position in the Eerste Divisie.

Recently, matches featuring FC Zwolle have been high-scoring, with an average of 3.67 goals per game in their last six matches, contributing 15 out of the 22 goals scored in those matches. The team has not lost to VVV-Venlo in their last 4 league games and they are also undefeated in their previous 3 league matches at home. Coach Dick Schreuder has the luxury of having a fully healthy squad to choose from, with no reported injuries or fitness concerns.

VVV Venlo

After leaking a goal in the additional time, Venlo ended their campaign in KNVB Cup. The 2-3 defeat against Emmen would hurt them as goals from Daan Huisman and Nick Venema kept their hopes alive. After their recent loss, VVV-Venlo and their fans will be hoping for a better outcome in this match.

In the Dutch second division, the team currently stands in sixth place on the league table, with a total of nine wins and five draws in 19 attempts. In their last 6 matches, VVV-Venlo has scored 9 goals, averaging 1.5 goals per game. They will be confident again as the league leaders with impressive recent form, especially on the road where they are unbeaten in four matches. Coach Rick Kruys has a mostly available squad to choose from, with only one player, Sven Braken, out due to injury.
