FC Twente vs Vitesse: Prediction
After disaster at De Grolsch Veste v Ajax, The Reds sobered up, were better of the two bad v ADO but ultimately failed to get back on winning track.
Eredivisie returnee had a decent season so far. With five wins, four draws and seven defeats (26:31 GD), they seem comfortably safe near middle of the table.
Their home form, though decent, could’ve been better. Eleven points from three wins and two draws from eight games (17:16 GD) place them in lower echelon of Dutch football.
Vitesse and Feyenoord played out an entertaining 0-0 draw in Arnhem on Sunday. Slutsky’s exit shook Vitas’s players enough to end their five-games losing streak, almost beating Feyenoord in the process.
Sitting at 9th, Europe’s still within the reach, as they’re just point off Heracles at 7th. Seven wins, three draws and six defeats, with a positive GD of 26 goals scored and 24 conceded.
Despite their inexplicable slump, Vitesse remains one of the better teams traveling over The Netherlands, winning ten points from eight games, finding back of the next twelve times while conceding fourteen.
Cruciate ligament rupture put Twente’s Matos out of commission for this season. Injury bill at Vitesse is tad worse; Gong, Musonda and Tannane are long absent, now are joined by Blackman.
Looking at their previous encounters, we can expect another goal bonanza. Both will be desperate for victory and I can see them going gung-ho from the start. Both teams to score and Over 2.5 goals are given whenever these two locks horns so let’s hope they continue in the similar vein.
