Eredivisie: Vitesse vs Twente

Vitesse vs Twente Betting Tip and Predictions. In the opening match of Round 17 in Dutch Eredivisie, Vitesse host Twente.

Vitesse play very good this season and after 16 rounds they are standing at the 5th position. Their main goal is to finish the season in the top 7 and try to reach the qualifications for the UEFA Europa League. Home side are not in the great form, only one win in their last 5 matches, so they see the match against Twente as a good chance to take three points. In the previous round they took only one point against Heracles, but how they played that is a good result for them. Despite the fact that they are playing very poor, Vitesse are still favorites to win this game.

Twente stand in the relegation zone and they desperately need points in order to move up on the table. Visitors are in the media focus in the last few days due to their punishment by the Dutch football association from European competition for three years. More about this you can read here. Because of financial problems they will have to sell few players in the winter’s transfer window. After 5 consecutive lost matches, Twente took 4 points in the last two games and they hope that can make another good result against home side. Their main problem is defence. Twente have one of the worst defences in league and it would be very hard for them to save their net against Vitesse who scored 30 goals in 16 matches this season.

Vitesse vs Twente injuries and suspensions

Home team will be without Nathan (11/2 m) and Ibarra (8/0 m). Visitors have problems with goalkeepers Marsman (6/0 gk) is out due to suspension, while Stevens (0/0 gk) and Plattel (0/0 gk) are both injured, so on the goal line will be 19-years-old Drommel (11/0 gk). Børven (0/0 f), Katsikas (3/0 d) and Agyepong (8/1 f) are all out while Ede (10/0 m) is doubtful.

Vitesse vs Twente possible lineups

Vitesse: Room, Diks, Werff, Kruiswijk, Leerdam, Nakamba, Yeini, Rashica, Qazaishvili, Oliynyk, Solanke.
Twente: Drommel, Bijen, Andersen, Uvini, Lely, Mokotjo, Tapia, Olaitan, Ziyech, Cabral, Oosterwijk.

Vitesse vs Twente Prediction

Despite the poor form of home side they are favorites to win this game. Visitors have improved their performance. I don’t believe that can be enough to win this game, but they are capable to hit the net, at least once.
