Vitesse vs RKC Waalwijk
Netherlands Eredivisie
Date: Saturday, 30 January 2021
Kick-Off at 20.00 UK
Venue: GelreDome, Arnhem.

Vitesse are certainly one of the most pleasant surprises of the season in Eredivisie. They sit sky-high third in the league standings ahead of the 20th round clash against RKC Waalwijk at GelreDome. The match with relegation strugglers should provide Vitas with a great opportunity to keep their stellar form going and clinch yet another three-pointer that would keep them in contention for the title.

The hosts look just phenomenal under Thomas Letsch this season. The German manager insists on the rock-solid defence that has brought them so much success so far in the campaign. Vitas have the best defensive record in the entire league right now. They conceded only 13 goals in 18 matches and they will up against the weakest attacking line in the division on Saturday. If there is any Eredivisie match for which we can say that a clean sheet is guaranteed, it has to be this one.

Vitesse vs Waalwijk Head-to-head

The head to head record also points out to an easy job for the hosts here. Vitesse won 15 and drew 6 of 21 home matches against RKC, without losing a single in the process.

Vitas picked up a 0-1 victory when the two sides took on each other in the reverse fixture at Mandemakers Stadion.

Finally, Vitesse won each of the last four head to head meetings with Waalwijk.

Vitesse vs Waalwijk Prediction

The visitors sit fourth from bottom and are just three points above the red zone line at the moment. They have been struggling for goals during the whole season. They took no more than two points in the last seven league outings. Fred Grim’s men scored only two goals in the last four Eredivisie matches. Knowing they are going up against the best defence in the division on Saturday, we have to back the hosts to keep a clean sheet at the 2.20 odds here.

We expect Vitas to get off to a strong start in an attempt to take advantage of the momentum. They have a deadly attacking duo in the likes of Lois Openda and Armando Broja. They have scored six goals each so far in the season. We would not be surprised to see them both on the scoresheet here. The second bet is Vitesse to win by at least two goals difference at the odds of 2.05.
