Groningen vs Vitesse: Prediction

Performances at Hitachi Capital have been the strongest characteristic of Groningen so far. They have won six encounters here in ten appearances, scoring 16 and conceding only eight goals. All of the defeats were narrow and usually happened against top tier teams.

There are a couple of sidelined players for this match though – El Hankouri, Gudmundsson and Dallinga. Another issue is poor efficiency. Groningen are the fourth worst team in the league when it comes to scoring.

As for their opposition, team Vitesse are having completely different playstyle, sitting in the 5th position with 35 points. This squad has bagged 36 goals so far, which averages around 1.65 per match. As for the results away from home, so far, they have five wins, two draws and four losses.

Hosts are struggling when it comes to scoring, while Vitesse have 38% loss rate away from home. We feel confident to pick draw or away win double chance and back it with high stake.

Both teams to score is the secondary choice, mainly because of previous head to head duels.

  • Draw or away win @ 1.55
