Vitesse – Groningen
Vitesse hosts Groningen in a match from the 21th round of the Dutch Eredivisie. Here are our winning soccer predictions for this clash.
Vitesse are currently 6th in the Eredivisie standings. They have 31 points won so far and a record of 8 wins, 7 draws and 5 losses. They are still on course in their goal of finishing in the Top 7 and fight for an Europa League qualification. In their last five matches they have lost just once – against the leader PSV, which is a proof that they are one of the good teams in the Netherlands this season.
In their last match Vitesse enjoyed a 2-1 against PEC Zwolle away from home. This was their second win in the last three games, which tells us that they are in a good form at the moment.
Meanwhile Groningen are 13th in the Eredivisie after 20 rounds played. They have 22 points won so far and a record of 5 wins, 7 draws and 8 defeats. Right now Groningen are not in a very good form, winning just one of their last five matches – against Sparta Rotterdam. Right now they are in a run of two consecutive draws, recorded against Willem II and Heracles.
Vitesse are the obvious favourite here, especially at home ground. Hendrikus Fraser’s team is one of the solid squads in the Eredivisie this season. Vitesse are going to rely on the experienced striker Tim Matavz, who have scored 9 goals in the league so far. Another striker in form is Brian Linssen, who have scored 7 goals in the league since the beginning of the season. Vitesse are a strong candidate for an Europa League qualification, so this makes them favourites against Groningen.
