Groningen vs Vitesse – Free Betting Tips & Predictions

The Euroborg Stadion has been a bogey venue for Vitesse in recent season. Can they reverse their fortunes in Groningen on Wednesday? Read our top three expert predictions for this week’s fixture below.

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

Groningen Double Chance

Groningen have collected a meagre two points from their last four Eredivisie fixtures, though their record in fixtures at home to Vitesse suggests they can add to their recent haul on Wednesday. Groningen are unbeaten in six previous meetings with Vitesse at the Euroborg Stadion since 2016, winning four times along the way and the visitors just seem to loathe playing at that venue. With that record considered, the hosts look an excellent bet in the double chance market again.

Under 2.5 Goals

Shot-shy Groningen and Vitesse are averaging just 1.2 and 0.8 goals per 90 minutes in the Eredivisie this term and the teams’ shared lack of thrust in the final third threatens to produce a game of few chances this week. 100% of the last three tussles between the clubs delivered fewer than three goals and we’re tipping that pattern to continue on Wednesday. With that in mind, we recommend you stick to the under 2.5 goals line again.

First Team to Score: Groningen

Vitesse have been notoriously slow starters in the Eredivisie this season, indeed, no club has conceded more first-half goals than the side from Arnhem since the summer (8). With that poor first-half record a factor, Groningen look a tempting price to open the scoring at the Euroborg Stadion on Wednesday.

Groningen vs Vitesse: Match Preview

Groningen team news

Radinio Balker is expected to miss Groningen’s clash with Vitesse, though Mike te Wierik should be available again having served his suspension. Te Weirik’s return is a timely one, with fellow defender Marin Sverko facing a spell on the sidelines. Further up the pitch, key attacker Cyril Ngonge will miss this week’s contest following his dismissal in Groningen’s 2-1 reverse at Willem II on Saturday.

Vitesse team news

Vitesse boss Thomas Letsch could be without injured duo Dominik Oroz and Million Manhoef on Wednesday. One player definitely out is defender Danilho Doekhi after the 23-year-old was given his marching orders for two bookable offences in Vitesse’s surprise 4-1 defeat at home to Twente last time out. The loss was the club’s second heavy beating of the campaign so far after their 5-0 route at the hands of Ajax in August.
