VNO Vs HRA Dream11, Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Relegation zone slumped Venlo make for a dicey proposition for a tottering Heracles outfit.  

Despite Venlo scrapping their way in a relegation battle at the moment, they’ll be hardly deterred when they come across Heracles today. Despite the 7 spots separating these two sides with Heracles way above Venlo in ninth place, Heracles are languishing at the moment, a plight Venlo will be looking to capitalise on.

Whilst Heracles did manage to stall their three match losing spree the last time around with a 2-0 win, they are yet to wrench free of the impasse they find themselves shrouded in. It’s been a howler of a last month for them with shoddy displays seeing them slip lower down the points tally with each passing gameweek, a set of events which will buoy Venlo.

And while Venlo are sitting in the last relegation spot, the club has managed to overhaul its underachieving from off late. Still far from doling out ideal result, they have gone four matches without a defeat, results which emote towards their resurgence in the league and will make them more than capable opponents in this encounter.

Probable Winner

With Venlo massively working on their backline and Heracles underwhelming at the moment, this promises to be a closely contested affair. The margins for error will be extremely fine with us envisioning this ending in a draw owing to Venlo’s reslliance and perseverance.

Heracles Vs Venlo: 6-1

VNO Vs HRA Dream11 Goal-Keeper

Venlo’s rejuvenation in the league has largely fallen down to their worldclass shot stopper. In Thorsten Kirschbaum, they have a myriad goal-keeper, someone who has ensured he’s shown valour and fortitude in the face of adversary to parry away shots with ease.

VNO Vs HRA Dream11 Defenders

With these two units having allowed sides to hit them for 79 goals in the 44 encounters they have played between each other till now, it was only befitting of us to limit our side to the bare minimum of three defenders. This looks set to be a clash where either side will find it extremely treacherous to emerge with a cleansheet, a narrative which saw us play safe in this ambit.

If any side does have the slightest of chances of keeping a shut down though, it’s the visiting unit with Venlo having scored just 22 times in 22 outings. It’s a discourse which sees us earmark the enterprising duo of Mats Knoester and Jeff Hardeveld from the side while from the opposition we’ll be moving in for Christian Kun.

VNO Vs HRA Dream11 Midfielders

Heracles’ leading scorer with the 6 goals and 2 assists, Mauro Junior becomes the first name to be imbued in this docket of our Dream 11 unit. He finds company in Mohammed Osman as we opt for two flair filled players who’ll be looking to leave a shaky Venlo outfit bewildered on the day.

Elsewhere, we have an akin duo being roped in from Venlo as well, one which begins with Peter van Ooijen who has the five goals and two assists in his kitty. He’s paired alongside the enigmatic Jonathan Opoku, someone who has pulled off some tenacious displays across the course of the last month to emerge as heir leading scorer with 6 goals and 2 assists.

VNO Vs HRA Dream11 Strikers

With the five goals and two assists, Sylvester van der Water was always going to be an instant selection for us for this outing. He’s paired alongside the vibrant ad extradonaire Cyriel Dessers while from the opposition we are moving in for Jerome Sinclair to wrap up our set of picks.

Captain And Vice-Captain

Dessers’ captains our side with the player being amongst the goals off late while Mauro is our vice-captain.
