Vitesse vs FC Utrecht
Netherlands – Eredivisie
Date: Tuesday, 12 January 2021
Kick-off at 17:45 UK/ 18:45 CET
Venue: Gelre Dome (Arnhem).
A mixed form in the campaign this term has put Vitesse closer to the top spot on the league table. The host had 2 wins and 2 losses within their recent five fixtures. And overall, they have picked up 32 points from 10 wins and 2 draws in their 15 league appearances so far this season.
Visiting on the back of a four-game unbeaten run in the league ought to give a slight edge for the visitors in the game at Arnhem. But with three draws in those four unbeaten clashes and trailing by 14 points on the table with the host, Utrecht has their share of problems in the middle.

Vitesse vs Utrecht Prediction
The host enjoys the ground advantage in the game and an eight-game long unbeaten run at home involving just one draw in it, assures a favorable performance for the home team. Besides, they will face a side that has won only one of their previous six outings in the overall schedule.
Vitesse will return home after securing all three points in a clean sheet win against Heracles on the road last time out in the league. The 0-2 win against Heracles was their third clean sheet win within their recent five clashes in the schedule.
Four consecutive draws in the schedule show a shaky defense for Utrecht. However, their last five matches have seen both teams score, which is why we can expect a fightback from the visitor. They will visit on the back of a 2-2 draw at home against Groningen in the last league clash.
From these stats, we can expect a BTTS in full-time. At 1.57 odds, the tip for BTTS will come in handy for the punters from the goals area. Vitesse is likely to finish the game as a home win, which might end as a high-scoring affair. That’s why the tip for draw no bet over Vitesse will probably be the best bet along with the tip for over 2.5 goals in full-time.
