Venue: Stadion Galgenwaard (Utrecht).
Utrehct have a game in hand, and still are in possession of a European spot. However, with rumors strong about the season being cut short, they would dearly love to hold on to this position, or maybe improve upon it.

FC Utrecht vs Vitesse Prediction
Brom’s men recorded a huge 5-1 win the last match-day at home, against Sparta Rotterdam. The passion shown in that game, plus the huge scoreline point towards the determination of the team to make it into Europe.
Meanwhile, Edward Sturing’s men registered a narrow 1-0 win at home over Twente. The fact that they had to make do with a faint victory over a recently promoted squad shows that the there is still a lot to be improved before the team makes an effort to qualify for the Europa.
As things stand, Brom’s men are considered the favorites. They were unbeaten in 13 of their past 15 overall fixtures (of which one loss had come against Feyenoord, one of the best teams in the competition), and at home, they are on a five-game winning run.
Keep note that the team had scored a total of 17 goals from these five fixtures, and they also had won nine of their former twelve match-ups at this venue. On the other hand, their counterparts were winless in six of their last eight overall games, and were so in seven of the preceding ten away fixtures.
On top of that, Brom’s men had recorded 7 of the prior 11 h2h wins, 9 of the past 12 at this venue, had scored twice or more in 9 of the former 14 h2h meetings here, and had only once failed to score against this opponent in 16 of the previous 17 h2h encounters. Considering all these observations, it’s deduced that the hosts Utrecht are on course to deliver a convincing win.
