Vitesse brilliantly come back from two goals down to earn a 2-2 stalemate at Constanta in the first leg meeting. This is in sync with Vitesse’s poor pre-season where they leaked goals in plenty.

Viitorul from Romania, hardly win games at the qualifiers, but the Dutch side must keep their concentration levels high to get the desired result in the second leg.

Viitorul vs Vitesse Match Preview

Viitorul set up the second round tie with Vitesse after dispatching Luxembourg’s Racing 2-0 on aggregate in their first hurdle in this term of Europa League. Even though it should be an open affair, we give hosts slim chances of continuing the European journey past the Dutch outfit.

Viitorul shockingly lifted the national championship silverware two years ago, but it only proved to be a moment (season) of bliss as they failed to keep it up in the following campaign which saw Gheorghe Hagi’s men take only the fourth place in the Liga I standings.

Vitesse had to go through the Europa League play-offs in the Dutch Eredivise, but they went all the way past ADO Den Haag and Utrecht there, netting an impressive 12-goal tally in four games in the process.

VItesse head into this as favourites following the fact they featured the highest level last year when they played Lazio, Nice and Zulte-Waregem in the Europa League group. They took five points in six matches, the win over Nice being the highlight of the campaign.

Vitas enter the new season with high ambitions after hiring the famous Russian manager Leonid Slutsky as the new head coach. The team looked quite impressive in the final test before the first official game of the season as they demolished Lokomotiv Moscow 0-3 last Tuesday.

Viitorul obviously have issues with the efficiency in the final third at the start of the season. They only notched two goals against the opposition from Luxembourg in the opening round, while they started the new domestic league campaign with a 0-1 loss to Dunarea Calarasi.

If we add that they had a devastating Europa League experience falling 1-7 on aggregate to Salzburg in the play-offs, we have to go with Vitesse to qualify from this tie.
