Team News: VVV-Venlo
There’s just the lone fitness concern for the VVV-Venlo gaffer Jos Luhukay to be concerned about from of an almost fully healthy squad. Sven Braken (Knee Injury) won’t play.
Team News: MVV
MVV manager Klaas Wels has to choose a team with limited availability. Lucas Kalala (Achilles tendon surgery) and Mitchel Keulen (Fractured Rib) can’t be considered.
Our assessment is that MVV have it in them to score a goal against this VVV-Venlo side, however it probably shouldn’t be as many as they’ll concede.
We think that it’s going to be a close game with a 2-1 victory for VVV-Venlo when the full-time whistle blows. Hopefully this is a good one.
