Vitesse vs Willem II
Netherlands – Eredivisie
Date: Saturday, 16th February 2019
Kick-off at 19.45 UK/ 20.45 CET
Venue: GelreDome (Arnhem).
Despite their shortcomings on the road, Vitas have been performing well at home. They might have a problem with their leaky defense, but the offense has come to the rescue many a time. Only twice have they lost at home this season. One was against the mighty Ajax, and the other one was in the Europa League.
Just opposite to that of their opponents for this tie, the Tricolores have been having a field day at the office in away ties. Only a handful of teams, including the likes of PSV, have posted better stats on the road in the recent weeks.
The game will be interesting considering that both teams meet each other in their comfort zone. An exciting battle is awaiting us.

Vitesse vs Willem II Prediction
Both sets of players will be extra motivated considering they are playing in their favorite setting. Leonid Slutsky’s men at their home, and their opposite number on the road. FC Hollywood at the Rhine has been fantastic at their home this season, losing just twice. They are also on a nine-match unbeaten run in front of their home crowd. When it is considered that the Superkruiken won five of their last six matches on the road, the chances for both teams to find the back of the net becomes astronomical.
The team from Tilburg scored in 18 of their last 19 games away from home, only missing out on Ajax. Also, in h2h ties, the last seven games in a row, and ten of the last eleven saw the away teams breaching the home defense. Furthermore, the last five overall games had the guests scoring two or more times.
Bet your top dollar that the hosts will be missing out on a clean sheet.
