Vitesse vs NEC – Free Betting Tips & Predictions

NEC have only lost one of their last eight away assignments in the Eredivisie ahead of their trip to play Vitesse on Sunday. Read our top three expert predictions for this weekend’s fixture below.

These odds from Ladbrokes were correct at the time of writing.

NEC Double Chance

NEC will start Sunday’s game two places and six points behind Vitesse, though there are reasons to believe the away side can leave Arnhem with a positive result. Vitesse could be a little fatigued following their Europa Conference League exertions on Thursday, while NEC have avoided defeat in eight of their last nine away fixtures in the Eredivisie. Rogier Meijer’s side are a tough nut to crack on the road and they are generously priced in the double chance market.

Both Teams to Score

Meijer’s NEC should arrive in Arnhem with the confidence to go toe-to-toe with Vitesse following some excellent recent performances on their travels and goals could be notched at both ends as a result. BTTS has landed in eight of NEC’s last 12 Eredivisie assignments, while the same bet hit the mark in 70% of Vitesse’s last ten league skirmishes at home. We recommend pursuing the same market when these well-matched outfits clash at the GelreDome.

NEC to Score First

NEC have been impressively potent away from home since September and remarkably, they have managed to open the scoring in each of their last seven Eredivisie matches as the visiting team. Their ability to spring out of the traps quickly under Rogier Meijer makes them a dangerous prospect for Vitesse on Sunday and NEC are available at a tempting price to break the deadlock again.

Vitesse vs NEC: Match Preview and Team News


Vitesse cruised to a 2-0 win over Austrian side Rapid Vienna on Thursday, though they have been wilting domestically. Thomas Letsch’s side have taken just one point from the last 12 on offer in the Eredivisie and they will have to cope without the absence of key pair Maximilian Wittek and Riechedly Bazoer this weekend, who are suspended and injured respectively.


NEC’s loss to Feyenoord in late January is their only defeat in seven Eredivisie fixtures and the Nijmegen-based outfit are gearing up for a strong finish to the campaign. The suspended Danish veteran Lasse Schone and injured Jordy Bruijn will both be missed in midfield on Sunday, though Rogier Meijer is an expert at finding creative ways to fill tactical gaps.
