VVV-Venlo form and stats

With 3 Eredivisie wins, 3 draws and 8 defeats from their home games, VVV-Venlo, who have the most conceded goals (73) in Eredivisie, are certainly not brimming with confidence. There's also a terrible streak running regardless of playing venue as VVV-Venlo have lost nine games in a row. The season ticket holders are starting to dread their visits here at Covebo Stadion - De Koel -, with the home team losing four in a row. They have not avoided a defeat here since the Vitesse game.

The VVV-Venlo fans got no joy from their last match, a Eredivisie game also here at Covebo Stadion - De Koel -: A 0-1 defeat against FC Groningen (placed 6th). A defeat was the result before that one, 1-2 away at PEC Zwolle.

The VVV-Venlo fans would probably like to see some more goals scored at their own stadium in the league, the tally being 17 in 14 matches. It's been trouble in front of goal recently, as only 1 of these goals has been scored in their last three home matches. Defensively there's plenty of potential for improvement as VVV-Venlo have allowed the opposition to score 37 goals here at Covebo Stadion - De Koel -.
