ADO Den Haag vs Vitesse Match preview

It has not been a bright start for ADO Den Haag this season which is reflected in their poor form. Under their new gaffer, Alan Pardew, the Storks have a win at home and a loss on the road. It will be interesting to see if Pardew can repeat the winning streak at home.

Besides, the Storks have been winless in nine of their prior ten fixtures across the major competitions with five losses and four draws in it. The host had marked their twelfth loss of the league in their previous encounter (0-4) with FC Utrecht on the road.

The host has not been performing well at their home despite the ground advantage. With just three wins in their previous ten home matches in the league, the Storks doesn’t pose much threat to the visitors. They did win their prior home match against Waalwijk with a 2-0 scoreline.

Aiming to better their previous season run, Vitesse has put in everything to stay within the top part of the league table. The visitor is on a seven-game unbeaten run in their schedule with their prior encounter ending in a 1-1 draw with FC Emmen at home.

Despite being on the road, Vitesse will have their better overall form than the host to counter the away handicap in the match. Evidently, the Vitas has lost only three of their prior ten matches in the major competitions.

Also, Vitesse has lost only four of their previous ten trips on the road. Edward Sturing has led them to straight wins in the remaining six away games. Apart from that, the Vitas will be visiting with a 0-2 win from their last away fixture with Heracles.

It will be a close encounter at Den Haag with both teams in equal chances of creating opportunities in the match. However, we have to wait to see whether there will be a winner or if the teams will share the spoils in the end as it is anyone’s game.
