Vitesse to Win

Vitesse have been one of the Eredivisie’s away-day specialists this season and having won three of their first four matches on the road, more success could follow at NEC. The hosts were soundly beaten 3-0 by Utrecht in their last test on home soil and Vitesse have the counter-punching quality to punish the same defensive mistakes.

Under 2.5 Goals

Vitesse’s sound performances at the back on their travels has provided the perfect counter-attacking platform this term and that combination has already produced two 1-0 wins in four away fixtures. NEC – who have failed to score in each of their last two home games – could find it tough to break down their visitor’s organised ranks on Sunday, and we recommend backing under 2.5 goals to be scored as a result.

Under 1.5 NEC Team Goals

NEC have plundered a miserly two goals in three home assignments in total this term and their lacklustre output in the final third could open up another opportunity for keen-eyed bettors. Vitesse have the defensive tools to frustrate their shot-shy hosts this weekend, and a stake on NEC in the under 1.5 team goals market could return a winner for their third home contest on the spin.

NEC vs Vitesse: Match Preview

NEC team news

Mathias De Wolf and Rens Van Eijden are rated as injury doubts in midfield and defence respectively this weekend. NEC snapped a four-match winless run with a 3-1 win at struggling Fortuna Sittard just before the international break, though they had shipped a whopping eight times in just two games before that.

Vitesse team news

Markus Schubert and Daan Reiziger look set to miss Sunday’s game, while Thomas Buitink and Matus Bero are suspended following their late red cards against Feyenoord last time out. Vitesse upset the odds to beat the Rotterdam giants 2-1 directly before the international hiatus and they have lost just one of their last five Eredivisie fixtures overall.
