Volendam vs Vitesse
Date: 18 February 2023, Saturday
Kick-off at 15:30 UK / 16:30 CET
Venue: Kras Stadion (Volendam).
Volendam will be hoping to forget the painful 3-0 defeat at Twente as soon as possible as they are about to continue their battle for avoiding relegation this weekend.
Wihelmus Jonk’s men will play host to bottom-half rivals VItesse on Saturday afternoon at Kras Stadion.
The hosts are currently one point above the danger zone. They have just escaped it thanks to a fantastic run of two draws and a win in three successive games despite facing the likes of Ajax, Groningen, and AZ Alkmaar in the process.
Jonk’s troops have already proved to have what it takes to stay competitive against the best teams in the league and they can certainly cause problems to Vitesse on Saturday.
The problem for Jonk and his squad is Vitesse’s recent form. The visitors will enter this on a high following a run of four straight league matches without a defeat.
Philip Cocu’s troops have been quite inspired in the final third in the recent matches. They have bagged at least two goals in each of the previous four Eredivisie outings.
Vitesse showed a great team spirit to beat in-form Utrecht 2-0 on the home patch last weekend despite getting their right back sent off just at the start of the second half.
Volendam vs Vitesse Head-to-head
- The draw was the most frequent of the outcomes in the head to head history between these two counterparts, happening 8 times in their previous 17 matches.
- Volendam held Vitesse to a 1-1 draw in the return game in the first half of the season at GelreDome.
- Interestingly, Vitesse have managed to celebrate just one win in the previous seven visits to Kras Stadion.
Volendam vs Vitesse Prediction
Kras Stadion has been a hostile environment for Vitesse in the last couple of decades. Despite their strong run of form under Cocu of late, we do struggle to see them as the favorites on Saturday afternoon.
We should also say that Volendam won two and drew one of the previous three Eredivisie matches on the home patch. You can back the Home Win & Both Teams To Score pick at the 6.50 odds here.
