Netherlands – Eredivisie
Date: Saturday, 16 January 2021
Kick-off at 15:30 UK/ 16:30 CET
Venue: De Oude Meerdijk (Emmen).
FC Emmen passes yet another matchday in Eredivisie without a win this season. The host is on a three-game losing streak in the campaign, following a 4-0 loss on the road against Heracles last time out in their schedule. They are the punching bag for the rest of the teams this season in the league.
Vitesse is looking to make its move for the top spot on the table this season. They have picked up 35 points at the third spot leveling with the two teams above them. The visitor will come in hot with a two-game winning streak, including the 1-0 win at home against Utrecht in the previous encounter.

Emmen vs Vitesse Prediction
The match is sizing to be a high-scoring affair in ninety minutes. The host has scored an average of one goal per match so far this season in their 16 attempts. But they haven’t been stingy in conceding goals as they took in a massive 41 goals in the same period.
For a team that scored 27 goals in their 16 appearances in the campaign, the host’s conceding average is a welcoming note for taking away all three points. So, the tip for over 2.5 goals will probably come in handy from the goals department in the encounter.
Emmen has won none of their league clashes this term until now, and it doesn’t seem like that trend is going to change anytime soon. Vitesse is in decent form and on the back of a double win. Hence, the away win in full-time will probably be the best bet for the punters.
