Vitesse vs FC Emmen Prediction

Vitesse were on the road the last match-day, and delivered a dominating 1-3 win over Sittard. Meanwhile, Emmen managed to win to nil at home by a sole goal from their side. Opponents were the ninth-placed Heracles.

In regards to the result of this upcoming fixture, right away the form of Emmen on the road needs to be addressed. The team has not won a single game away from home in 2019-20, and that includes all competitions. 

In fact, disregarding the 1-1 draw against the dead-last placed Waalwijk, who had then played with ten men on the pitch due to a red card, Emmen have lost every one of their games on the road. 

Moreover, Emmen have scored a total of just one goal from their last four away fixtures, while not keeping a single clean sheet in road matches this whole season. 

To be further precise, they have conceded twice or more in all of their such match-ups except the one against Waalwijk, and conceded a total of 29 goals from their last 11 such trips.

On the other hand, Vitesse are on a four-game winning run, and recorded a combined scorecard of 13-1 from these games. In addition, they had also kept clean sheets in four of their last five overall fixtures. 

At home, they are on a winning run of two games, with a combined scoreline of 7-0, and kept clean sheets in four of their last five appearances here. 

Furthermore, the team have lost just twice this whole season in front of the home crowd, and most importantly, are just three points away from third spot, which allows direct entry into the Europa League.

Finally, Vitesse have never failed to score against this opponent in the last ten years, and are unbeaten at this venue in the said period.

Considering all these observations, it’s easily deduced that Vitesse are on course to record a crushing win this Sunday.
