Feyenoord to consolidate top three spot in the Eredivisie

On Thursday night, Feyenoord host Venlo in the Dutch Eredivisie, as the home side looks to make up ground on the league’s top two.

Feyenoord head into this game in a strange limbo in the Eredivisie, as the team from Rotterdam are eight points behind second-place Ajax, but also six points clear of fourth place Heracles.

Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s team have hit form of late, winning four of their last five league outings. Their only blip in that recent run of games was a 3-0 defeat at second place Ajax. Last time out in the Dutch top-flight, the home side recorded a 2-1 win over league leaders PSV Eindhoven.

Feyenoord have been strong in the Eredivisie at the Stadion Feijenoord of late, winning their last 11 league matches. They have also scored at least two goals in nine of their last 11 games on home soil.

Venlo have enjoyed a mixed start to their campaign in the Dutch top-flight and currently sit seventh place in the Eredivisie table. VVV have been inconsistent of late in the league, though, as they have won just two of their last seven Eredivisie matches, yet have lost just one of their last five league matches.

Last time out the visitors suffered a 4-1 home defeat by Heracles, which hampered their chances of moving up the table.

Venlo’s last three Eredivisie matches have produced over 2.5 goals, while both teams have scored in their last four league outings.

VVV’s recent away record in the Eredivisie is poor, as they have won just one of their last six matches, while they have lost three of their last four away games. Their recent Eredivisie away games have been relatively low scoring, with under 2.5 goals scored in five of their last eight matches.

Forebet predicts that Feyenoord will record a victory in a high scoring clash to consolidate their place in the top three of the Eredivisie.
