Vitesse vs Twente Prediction
Vitesse lost 4-3 on the road the last match-day, against Zwolle. It was a heroic performance by the former away from home, and was unlucky to lose. This defeat has made a victory in this upcoming weekend game a necessity. The chances for their Europa playoffs depend on it.

As things stand, Vitesse are the huge favorites this Saturday. They are in contention for Europa League, and are at home. On the other hand, Twente are running scared from impending relegation, and are on the road. On top of that, Twente are a newly-promoted team as well.
Moreover, Twente have a total of two overall official wins since November, and on the road, their last league victory had come back in September. On top of that, Vitesse had won the reverse fixture 0-3, and on the road as well. They have also recorded a combined scoreline of 8-0 from the last 2 such meetings, and scored 15 goals from the last 4 h2h matches at home.
Finally, Twente have lost every one of their h2h visits to this stadium since 2014, and the last they won at this ground was back in 2012. Bringing these stats under consideration, it’s clear that Vitesse are huge favorites this Saturday.
