Venlo hosts Sparta Rotterdam in round 21 of the Dutch Eredivisie. The match will be played on Tuesday, March 9th at Seacon Stadion – De Koel (Venlo)
Venlo has been experiencing another decline in the course of the season. In the last five matches, the Yellow-Blacks have not scored a single point. It seems that the attack is not asleep and scores in almost every match. But huge problems in defense outweigh all the efforts of the team in the attack. Just imagine - the goal difference in five recent meetings is 5:20.

The Lords cannot win in as many as eight rounds in a row, suffering five defeats. One of the main reasons is Sparta's extremely unreliable game in defense. The team conceded 16 goals in this failed streak of eight meetings without victories. And the strikers scored one goal per match on average.
In the last rounds, the problems in defense of both opponents have become aggravated. However, this did not happen suddenly. The defensive redoubts of the hosts are definitely the worst in the Eredivisie (66 goals conceded), and the visitors’ fixtures (41) are close to the outsiders. The scoring indicators are almost equal - 33 goals for Sparta, and four more for Venlo. 23 of them were arranged by the top scorer of the current championship, Giakoumakis. Moreover, Georgios scored a double, a hat-trick, and two quadruples. And he scored seven times the last six rounds. The Lords have their own snipers. In recent matches with Fortuna and Ajax, Danzell Gravenberch scored three goals (four in total). And it is high time for the best goal scorer of the team, Lennart Thy (nine goals), to improve his stats in a match against the worst defense of the tournament. Over 2.54 goals scored took place in the last four head-to-head meetings. Of course, there is a risk, but everything goes to the fact that the fans will again see at least three goals scored.
Prediction for the match: Over 2.5 goals scored
