Vitesse vs Excelsior Latest News, Team Information, and Lineups

Vitesse

Small progress but satisfying for the Arnhem team who recorded their second win of the season over the past weekend downing NEC Nijmegen in their most efficient game of the campaign. Vitesse scored six goals in seven matches this season and three of those goals came against NEC. Fode Fofana, Amine Boutrah, Mathijs Tielemans, and Davy Propper are out through injury.

Potential lineup: Room, Arcus, Hendriks, Oroz, Pinto, Kozlowski, Meulensteen, Manhoef, van Ginkel, de Regt, Hamulic.

Excelsior

The Rotterdam team keeps on surprising the pundits and fans alike. Excelsior earned their third victory of the season and put themselves in the fifth spot in the Eredivisie. Mike van Duinen, Noah Naujoks, Lennard Hartjes, Kik Pierie, and Jacky Donkor are facing a fitness test ahead of the match this weekend.

Potential lineup: van Gassel, Zagre, Nieuwpoort, Widell, Horemans, Sandra, el Yaakoubi, Baas, Driouech, Agrafiotis, Sanches.

Player to Watch: Marco van Ginkel

The former Netherlands national team member with eight caps to his name, Marco van Ginkel leads Vitesse in scoring this season. The central midfielder recorded three goals in seven matches this campaign playing most of those games in the starting lineup.

This is van Ginkel's first full season with the Arnhem outfit after he secured a move from PSV Eindhoven on the last day of this January's transfer window. Van Ginkel played for AC Milan and Chelsea over the years, even though the London team mostly sent him on loan, usually to PSV where he eventually moved on a free transfer.
