Feyenoord vs VVV Venlo (By: Meese)
Feyenoord looked like a side in a decent moment, but the real confirmation came when they welcomed league leaders from PSV and won 2:1. They exploited the first half well, were far better and took the double lead - leaving ball possession and superiority on the field to PSV in the second half. They are third, with eight points less than Champions League placed Ajax and a game less played.
After two games with no defeat, players of Venlo suffered quite difficult defeat away from home against Heracles last weekend with a 4:1 result. They were simply outplayed by far more concrete and effective opponent in quite an open game, where their defensive lineup showed way too many weaknesses. they are now sharing the seventh position with AZ that leads to the additional play-offs.
The hosts should miss defender Botteghin (10/1) and forward Jorgensen (9/2). Midfielder van Ooijen (9/0) should be suspended for the guests. Injured are defender Dekker (1/0), midfielder Janssen (11/0) and forward Post (12/2).
This game comes as a must-win for Feyenoord in order to close the gap between them and Ajax, meanwhile, the side seems to be in a very good form. Coming from a morale-boosting victory, I can't see anything but an easy win for the home side against not that impressive travelers.
