Thursday's Eredivisie predictions including Ajax vs. VVV-Venlo

Sports Mole provides score predictions for all of Thursday's Eredivisie fixtures, including Ajax vs. VVV-Venlo.

Emmen vs. Heerenveen (Thursday, 1.30pm)

With their hopes of survival in the last chance saloon, Emmen prepare to take on Heerenveen at De Oude Meerdijk on Thursday.

On the other hand, Heerenveen's chances of a European finish currently lie in the balance, and there is no margin for error from here on out.

We say: Emmen 2-1 Heerenveen

Emmen have it all do to if they are to keep fighting in a bid to stay up. They have stuttered in recent matches but were in good form prior to that. We are backing them to claim all three points, giving themselves a chance at redemption on the final day of the season.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.

Ajax head into their final home game of the season looking to extend their 14-point advantage having already been crowned Eredivisie champions.

However, opponents VVV-Venlo currently sit in the bottom two, leaving the visitors requiring at least one point from their remaining two fixtures to have any chance of avoiding relegation to the second tier.

We say: Ajax 4-0 VVV-Venlo

On the back of their much-needed draw at the weekend, Venlo will feel more confident about troubling the champions.

Nevertheless, we expect this to be one-way traffic with the home side cruising to victory with minimal fuss.

Our tipster partners are predicting a double chance bet on a draw or an away win.

AZ Alkmaar will look to continue their push for second spot in the Eredivisie table on Thursday, as they travel to Euroborg to take on Groningen.

With two games of the season left to play, the visitors sit one point behind PSV Eindhoven in second place, while their hosts can still achieve a top-six finish with a positive end to the campaign.

We say: Groningen 1-2 AZ Alkmaar

With AZ Alkmaar compromised at the back due to several unavailable centre-backs, Groningen could definitely cause the visitors problems on Thursday, but we see Jansen's men escaping with all three points.

Even without Koopmeiners, the Cheeseheads have looked strong in their last two outings, and they will be hopeful of recording a third consecutive victory as they desperately aim to break into the top two.

Our tipster partners are predicting an away win.

Sittard vs. Vitesse (Thursday, 1.30pm)

World Cup general image football

With their chances of qualifying for European football hanging by a thread, Fortuna Sittard prepare for the visit of Vitesse on Thursday.

The teams will be looking to get back to winning ways in next to no time following their respective defeats last time out.

We say: Fortuna Sittard 1-2 Vitesse

Despite having less to play for compared to their hosts, the visitors will want to sign off the current campaign in style as they set out for their penultimate fixture. We fancy them to secure a narrow victory in what should be an enthralling affair.

Our tipster partners are predicting a double chance bet on a home win or draw.

RKC Waalwijk vs. FC Twente (Thursday, 1.30pm)

Two sides who recently put an end to their respective losing streaks last time out clash at the Mandemakers Stadion on Thursday when FC Twente visit RKC Waalwijk.

The away side also have a league double over their hosts in sight following a 2-0 victory in November's reverse fixture.

We say: RKC Waalwijk 1-1 FC Twente

Given the current form of both sides coming into the game, neither of them should be too dissatisfied with a draw in this one. We are anticipating a tight affair and ultimately, a share of the spoils with goals at both ends.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.

PSV Eindhoven play host to PEC Zwolle on Thursday knowing that victory would put the club on the brink of securing Champions League football for next season.

Safe from relegation and with little to play for, the visitors head into this contest looking to ensure that they do not end the campaign with four successive defeats.

We say: PSV Eindhoven 2-0 PEC Zwolle

After their surprise defeat last time out, question marks have naturally emerged over whether Zwolle have the desire required to end the season on the front foot.

While we expect an improved performance, PSV should still have plenty in the tank to ease to victory.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.

Heracles vs. Feyenoord (Thursday, 1.30pm)

Feyenoord square off against Heracles on Thursday knowing that victory will secure fifth position in the Eredivisie standings.

While the visitors are attempting to qualify for the Europa League, Heracles will finish in the top half of the table if they can claim four points from their remaining two matches.

We say: Heracles 1-2 Feyenoord

Given Feyenoord's recent form in the Eredivisie, Heracles will fancy their chances of causing an upset.

However, with Europa League football at stake, we expect the visitors to raise their game and edge out their hosts.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.

Sparta vs. Utrecht (Thursday, 1.30pm)

Sparta Rotterdam welcome FC Utrecht to the Het Kasteel on Thursday aiming to make it four Eredivisie wins on the bounce.

Meanwhile, the visitors are unbeaten in their last eight games on the road, with their last away defeat coming back in January.

We say: Sparta Rotterdam 1-2 FC Utrecht

With both sides on a great run of form heading into this one, the match has all the makings of a truly absorbing contest. The away side are the favourites for this one as their league position would suggest, and we are tipping them to get the job done.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.

ADO Den Haag vs. Willem II (Thursday, 1.30pm)

World Cup general image football

A crucial game takes place at the bottom of the Eredivisie table on Thursday, as basement side ADO Den Haag welcome Willem II to the Kyocera Stadium.

The hosts sit at the foot of the table but have kept their survival hopes alive with back-to-back victories, while their opponents sit in 15th spot, one point and one place ahead of FC Emmen in the relegation playoff place and two points above the automatic drop zone with two games left to play.

We say: ADO Den Haag 2-0 Willem II

In a game between two sides who will be absolutely desperate for a win in a crucial game in the race for survival, this encounter could definitely go either way, but we give the edge to the hosts.

Den Haag come into the match with momentum having kept their slim survival hopes alive with back-to-back wins, and we see them rallying to pick up a third straight victory to potentially move out of the bottom two.

Our tipster partners are predicting a double chance bet on a home win or an away win.
