Vitesse vs Sparta Rotterdam
Date: Saturday, 19 September 2020
Kick-Off at 17.45 UK
Venue: Gelre Dome, Arnhem.
Can this be the year when Vitesse finally gets involved into the top four race? Club’s administration has been making serious investments and moves for years now.
On top of everything there is a close relation with Chelsea FC and loaning their players, so fans in Arnhem definitely have a lot of reasons for optimism.
The new season started with a victory on the road against RKC, and with a good opportunity to make it two in a row this Saturday against Sparta Rotterdam.
Stats are pointing at direction of high-scoring affair, while bookies favour the home side for the win at 1.65 odds.

Vitesse vs Sparta Rotterdam Prediction
It’s actually shocking how many draws these two teams had during the pre-season phase. Vitesse’s last four friendlies against PSV, ADO Den Haag, Fortuna Dusseldorf and Darmstadt have all ended without a winner. Three out of four Sparta’s friendlies ended like that too.
In the opening week Thomas Letsch’s squad took on RKC Waalwijk and won three points thanks to the goal scored by Derfalou in the first half. This Algerian striker was returned from loan deal from VVV Venlo this season. Best scorers from previous season Tim Matavz and Bryan Linssen have made a move to other clubs.
Sparta Rotterdam were defeated in the opening match at home by the champions Ajax 0-1 FT. They are traditionally playing poor on the road, having lost 8 out of 13 away matches last season. We are expecting home win here and lots of goals.
