Vitesse to win it

Vitesse have enjoyed a good run of form lately; they’ve won their last three, and seven of their last eight games in all competitions. As a matter of fact, Vitesse have no losses in their last 10 games. In contrast, Groningen have lost five of their last eight games, and they’ve won just one of those eight games; they’ve also struggled against Vitesse in recent meetings. Vitesse have no losses in the last three clashes between these sides, with two wins and a draw. On that note, we believe that Vitesse will win this game.

Someone will fail to score

Vitesse have done a good job defensively, especially recently. We’ve mentioned that Vitesse have won their last three games; we would also like to point out that they’ve not conceded a single goal in those three games. In the same vein, Groningen have struggled in front of goal recently; they’ve scored just once in their last four games, and that goal was in a friendly match. It’s also worth noting that both teams have scored just once in the last four encounters between these two; for these reasons, we’re making the prediction that at least one of these teams will blank.

A low scoring game

Due to Groningen’s lack of goals, their games tend to be on the low-scoring side; four of Groningen’s last five league games have gone below the 2.5 goal mark. Similarly, Vitesse have had their fair share of low scoring games, especially recently. Their last three games have all gone under 2.5. It’s been the same case with recent encounters between these two; the last four clashes between them have gone under 2.5 with three of those games going under 1.5. With this in mind, we shouldn’t expect too many goals in this game.

The best odds for Vitesse vs Groningen

Vitesse vs Groningen: Team Overview


Vitesse have been one of the most in-form teams in the Eredivisie; they are coming off three consecutive wins, and are unbeaten in their last 10 games in all competitions. Thomas Letsch’s men will look to extend that streak to 11 games as Groningen come calling. Loïs Openda will be the man to look out for in this game.


On the other hand, Groningen have not done too well; they’ve managed just one win in their last six games, and that was in a friendly match. Danny Bujis’ men are without a win in their last five league games. Will Cyril Ngonge help his team to end their unwanted streak?
