Team News: FC Emmen
Almost everyone can be considered, as there’s just the sole fitness concern for the FC Emmen gaffer Dick Lukkien to contend with from an otherwise fully-primed set of players. Michael de Leeuw (Muscle Injury) will miss out.
It’s our opinion that Rood-Witten could use the 4-2-3-1 system this time, utilising Dennis Telgenkamp, Denis Granecny, Leon Sopic, Miguel Araujo, Glenn Bijl, Simon Tibbling, Michael Chacon, Marko Kolar, Lucas Bernadou, Nikolai Laursen and Michael de Leeuw.
Team News: VVV-Venlo
With a fully injury-free squad available to choose from, VVV-Venlo boss Hans de Koning has zero fitness concerns to report before this game.
From our viewpoint, Venlose trots could decide to begin the game with a 4-3-3 formation, starting the game with Thorsten Kirschbaum, Tobias Pachonik, Roy Gelmi, Christian Kum, Lukas Schmitz, Evert Linthorst, Danny Post, Wassim Essanoussi, Vito van Crooij, Jafar Arias and Joshua John.
We feel that FC Emmen are likely to dominate possession and create several successful chances.
However, VVV-Venlo may well find it hard getting goals but we do think that it’s more than likely that they will be managing to get on the scoresheet.
We’re therefore anticipating a pretty comfortable 3-1 victory for FC Emmen after 90 minutes.
