Vitesse vs Groningen Predictions & Match Preview

Vitesse vs Groningen
Netherlands – Europa League Playoff
Date: Tuesday, 21st May 2019
Kick-off at 19.45 UK/20.45 CET
Venue: GelreDome (Arnhem).

Vitesse may have lost the first leg, but they succeeded in putting in the all-important away goal, which will most probably come into play. Realizing the pressure they might be under in the second leg, Groningen tried to take full advantage of their home leg. They did their part too.

The team was leading 2-0 at the one-hour mark. But Vitesse, after relentless efforts finally could open their account, tipping the scales in their favor, despite the loss.

Now, with their poor road record, Groningen needs to put up against the excellent home form of Vitesse. Even a 1-0 home win would be enough for Vitesse to take a spot in the finals.

Vitesse vs Groningen Prediction

All season, Vitesse has lost just twice at home. That’s a run of 11 months with just four losses in front of the home crowd. Even better, one of the losses was against champions Ajax, and the other was in the Europa League. As of now, they are on a 16-match unbeaten run at home and scored two or more goals in 13 of their last 15 home ties.

Groningen, on the other hand, is winless in their last six away ties and had just one win from their last 13 attempts on the road. They failed to score in four of their last six road games and lost their last four visits to this venue. Importantly, the team has recorded just a single win at this stadium in the last ten years.

By all means, expect the hosts to take control of the proceedings this Tuesday.
