Vitesse vs Utrecht Best Bets and Predictions

Vitesse will look to take advantage of a hectic week for Utrecht who had to play extra time in a midweek Dutch Cup clash, so there wasn't much time to recuperate.

Draw

The home team is getting used to taking one point at a time, quite literally. They had four split games in their last four Eredivisie matches, and are slowly but surely moving away from the danger zone. They have the second-highest mark of draw games this term with eight while Utrecht is at six. The guest side also had a couple of draw games in their last five outings. Looking at their h2h meetings, there were only a couple of draw matches in their past ten encounters. When playing at home Vitesse has won only once while drawing and losing on four occasions. Utrecht's away stats are better in that regard, they have recorded four wins, with three draws, and losses as well.

Both Teams to Score – Yes

Vitesse might not have been the most effective team in the league earlier this season, but they have found their scoring touch at the right time. They had three straight games with BTTS covered, and they also had four out of six in that department since the league season continued after the winter break. Utrecht had two games in that sense in their last five matches, while when playing against each other, six out of the last ten games ended with BTTS. Predicting a match where both teams will score at least a goal is also based on the way these teams have played tactically over the past few matches.

Potential Lineups, Team News, and Preview

Vitesse

The Arnhem outfit seems like it's finally starting to look like a team compared to what we have witnessed from this squad thus far this season. They are unbeaten in their last three games moving away from the relegation zone. Even though the job is nowhere near completed when it comes to their status in Eredivisie, things do look brighter, at least for the time being. Davy Propper and Sondre Tronstad are injured, and Matus Bero is missing the match because of suspension.

Potential lineup: Scherpen, Arcus, Wittek, Meulensteen, Flamingo, Oroz, Manhoef, Kozlowski, Bialek, van Ginkel, Vidovic.

Utrecht

Utrecht had a tough week already, after playing 127 minutes in the round 16 clash of the Dutch Cup against AZ Alkmaar, they prevailed and now are waiting for another important clash in the league. Utrecht is holding onto the final spot that leads to European competition next season, and with so much at stake there is not a lot of room for mistakes. The visiting team's defense has been the biggest issue and looking at their goal difference at 33-31, it is easy to see a pattern of play. Bas Dost, Ramon Hendriks, Django Warmerdam, Bart Ramselaar, Hidde ter Avest, and Tommy St. Jago are injured at the moment.

Potential lineup: Barkas, Klaiber, van der Hoorn, van der Maarel, Viergever, Bozdogan, Toornstra, Booth, van de Streek, Boussaid, Douvikas.
