Vitesse form and stats

Vitesse, who have the fewest conceded goals (6) at home in Eredivisie, have performed here at GelreDome this season with 8 wins from 11 Eredivisie matches. Some points have been lost, as they have drawn 2 games and lost 1. With three straight defeats the pressure is piling up on Vitesse to get some points in this home game.

Vitesse are hoping to put things right at home after a defeat in their previous match, the score 1-3 away versus PSV. Preceding that match was the home game against FC Twente that was lost 0-2.

Vitesse's goalkeeper Remko Pasveer was extremely busy against PSV, saving the team from a uglier defeat with a stunning twelve saves.

Another home game is coming up fairly shortly for the hosts, as VVV-Venlo are coming to town in three days.

A decent goal production from Vitesse in their home games so far, with 17 goals from 11 league matches. It's been trouble in front of goal recently, as only 2 of these goals has been scored in their last three home matches. Vitesse have only conceded 6 from their league home games. For more goal stats, check the Statistics tab above. It's worth mentioning that 3 of these goals has been conceded in their last 3 home matches.

VVV-Venlo form and stats

The hunting on away grounds haven’t been very fruitful for VVV-Venlo, who have the most conceded goals (56) in Eredivisie, so far with only 10 points returning home. The records show 3-1-7 (win-draw-lose). Three has not been a lucky number for VVV-Venlo as they have been defeated three times in a row since the Vitesse match. With two straight losses from their last two away games, VVV-Venlo are hoping that it's time for some travel points again.

VVV-Venlo's previous game was their home loss versus AZ (1-4). Preceding that game was the away KNVB Beker victory against NEC (after extra-time) with the score of 2-1.

It's a bit worrying for VVV-Venlo that their goalkeeper Thorsten Kirschbaum made six saves in the AZ game last time out, but still couldn't prevent the loss.

The schedule is very tough for VVV-Venlo now as they have to travel again shortly after this match. A KNVB Beker game at Vitesse is waiting in only three days.

VVV-Venlo are not goal shy away from home in the league, finding the net 20 times in 11 away games so far. The VVV-Venlo manager H. de Koning has some worries about the defense as 24 goals have been conceded in these travels.
