Go Ahead Eagles vs Vitesse Predictions and Odds
Go Ahead Eagles have been one of the best stories of this Eredivisie season, managing to go beyond expectations to edge out many of their counterparts.
Go Ahead Eagles to Win
The Eagles are flying high at the moment and will be sorry that this part of the season is coming to a halt because of the World Cup. They are undefeated in eight straight Eredivisie matches and are maintaining their position in the middle of the table. Vitesse did have a small comeback after suffering through losses, but they are again close to the relegation zone.
Both Teams to Score – Yes
The Eagles played four straight games when both teams scored at least one goal, while Vitesse has been similarly doing things. They both allow plenty of goals, but for now, the difference is that Go Ahead Eagles are getting some points, even if they are simply avoiding losses.
General information about Go Ahead Eagles vs Vitesse
Go Ahead Eagles looking to extend the undefeated streak
Going eight games in a row without a loss is not a small task. The Eagles team is feeling good, but that emotion can be tricky because of where they stand in the rankings. When a team goes that long without losing a game one could hope that they are in the top half of the league table. This is not the case with the Eagles. They are eleventh, but only with a four-point cushion in front of Emmen who are just behind the line that separates the team in the relegation zone from the ones that are, for now, safe. Go Ahead Eagles are getting decent production from their main forward players, Oliver Edvardsen is still the top scorer with five goals, but Isac Lidberg is getting closer with four. The Eagles' goals come from different parts of the field which is a great advantage.
Go Ahead Eagles most likely starting lineup: De Lange, Deijl, Amofa, Idzes, Kuipers, Linthorst, Rommens, Willumsson, Adekanye, Edvardsen, Lidberg.
Vitesse has some injury issues this time around but will try to avoid another loss that would throw them inside the relegation zone. It's been a hard season for the Arnhem outfit who are struggling both on and off the field. They did manage to take away a point against Ajax in the midweek, but they need to follow it up against the Eagles. Those problems outside the dome are transparent, but somehow the fans are used to them by now. Contrary to their opponents, Vitesse doesn't have a player who is leading the pack. Nobody has more than two goals, and four players are in that category. With the aforementioned injury list getting longer, Vitesse will look forward to the World Cup break that is forthcoming.
Vitesse's most likely starting lineup: Reiziger, Wittek, Cornelisse, Ferro, Arcus, Tronstad, Flamingo, Vidovic, Bero, Kozlowski, van Duivenbooden.
Go Ahead Eagles: Federico Mattiello and Erwin Mulder are injured.
Vitesse: Melle Meulensteen and Bartosz Bialek are injured.
