Match Preview

Now back in front of their own fans, Utrecht look to carry on their near-perfect start (W2, D1) and extend their unbeaten Eredivisie home record to 11 games (W5, D5). Notably, Utrecht scored at least three times in four of the five victories in this sequence.
Patience may be needed though, as six of Utrecht’s last seven home league goals have come after half-time. Additionally, they have conceded the first goal in two of their three games so far this season, having to come from behind at half-time to win in their only home game so far this term.
Typically poor on the road, visitors Venlo have conceded at least twice in ten of their last 12 Eredivisie away games (2.83 conceded per match on average). Team coach Robert Maaskant is also winless in 12 of 15 personal H2Hs vs Utrecht (W3, D4, L8).
Maaskant’s side on the day has conceded at least twice in four of the last five clashes within that group. Furthermore, in a more personal duel, both of Robert Maaskant’s previous H2Hs with touchline opponent John van den Brom have seen over 3.5 match goals.
Players to watch: Utrecht new-boy, 20 year-old Issah Abass, scored a stunning solo goal within ten minutes vs Feyenoord last time out. That marked his first professional goal since 2017/18.
Venlo’s Peter van Ooijen has scored or received a booking in each of his last five competitive appearances. Three of his four goals in this period came in the second-half.
Stat attack: Five of both sides’ six combined league matches of 2019/20 have produced a 1-0 scoreline (either way) at the break.
Utrecht’s John van den Brom is unbeaten in his last 11 H2Hs with Venlo (W9, D2).
Five of his last seven victories in that group have been accompanied by a clean sheet.
