Waalwijk vs Venlo by Isaiah
Waalwijk not succeeded away to Amsterdam in the game against Ajax, receiving their first defeat to the league with a 2-0 score. They played tight and in the first half they managed to limit Ajax, however Ajax found the way to score twice in the second half, and kept all three points without problems.
The fact is that Erwin Koeman is doing a good job in Waalwijk, walking in the footsteps of his predecessor Ruud Brood. Waalwijk has made a great start this season and is very serious to all of the games, and if they will continue at the same pace, its more likely that they will repeat last season's success and participate participate in the playoffs.
Main defender Ramos was injured to the game against Ajax and will stay out for the next few months, while midfielder Peter Jungschlager and young striker Mark Janssen are long term out, and striker Richard Barroihlet is doubtful.
Venlo is coming after a home draw with the score of 2-2 against Nijmegen, remaining winless after five games, a result that should leave them satisfied as the guests were better throughout the game and was in front of the score with 0-2, while they had also a shot to the crossbar. When you lose 0-2 early, you can not be sad with a draw.
Their coach stated that he is sure they will not finish last to the standings, although they made some notable additions to the end of the transfer window, and their fans are expecting something more. Anyway, their primary objective is to avoiding direct relegation, something that seems difficult if they will continue with same performances.
Main midfielder Barry Maguire and new midfielders Jeffrey Altheer and Jules Reimerink are all out injured, while there is a flu to their squad that makes defender Ahmed Ammi, midfielder Marcel Meeuwis, midfielder Oguzhan Turk and striker Roland Bergkamp, all doubtful to play.
RKC Waalwijk is clearly a better team and playing at home, and after all these problems that Venlo faces, they should win this with no difficulties.
