Tips & Predictions For Today, December 6, 2018.
League: Netherlands – Eredivisie
Match: 20:00 Feyenoord – Venlo
Tip: Over 2.5 Goals
Match Result: 4:1 WON!!!
|Back in November, the floodlights failed after just 35 seconds in the original fixture. They were definitely working over the past weekend though, as Feyenoord became the first team this season to take anything from the reigning champions PSV this season.|
|With that 2-1 victory, which saw goals in both halves of the game, the hosts turned out the lights on the all-time best start to a PSV season. It marked a continuation of what has been a glowing year for Feyenoord at De Kuip, with the Rotterdammers scoring at least two goals in a dazzling 83% of their last 18 home victories.|
|After escaping last season’s visit here with a point, Venlo will need to be operating at full wattage to repeat that feat. However, their efficiency rating on the road is poor, with Venlo winless in five away games (D1, L4 – all competitions) losing to nil on three occasions.|
|However, Venlo can at least take confidence in the fact that manager Maurice Steijn is thus far unbeaten against Feyenoord counterpart Giovanni van Bronckhorst (W1, D1) on the touchline.|
|Players to watch: The electrifying Nicolai Jørgensen has scored six goals across his last eight appearances for club and country – including the opener against champions PSV.|
|Venlo midfielder Damian van Bruggen earned his first full 90 minutes in the Eredivisie last time out, and scored his first ever senior league goal in this fixture last season.|
|Stat attack: Steijn has also won half (four) of his eight managerial clashes with Feyenoord teams (W4, D1, L3).|
|Ten of Feyenoord’s last 12 home Eredivisie matches have produced over 2.5 goals.|
|Feyenoord have scored at least three goals in nearly half (ten) of the 21 historic H2H league matches against Venlo in Rotterdam.|
