Vitesse vs RKC Waalwijk Lineups, Match Preview, and Team Information

Vitesse

The Arnhem team will have another tough season to deal with as they didn't spend much money on new players but lost some important ones. However, there is no time to waste as the team will need to adjust quickly and try to avoid the drop zone. Thomas Buitink is out through injury while Kacper Kozlowski and Davy Propper face a fitness test.

Possible lineup: Room, Pinto, Arcus, Oroz, Isimat-Mirin, Tielemans, Altena, Meulensteen, van Ginkel, Manhoef, Hamulic.

RKC Waalwijk

RKC fought for European competitions last season, but this time around there is trouble brewing at the club. They lost all four Eredivisie games to start the season and they have the worst goal difference at 2-13. Defending has been a major issue for the team.

Possible lineup: Vaessen, Gaari, Bruma, Lelieveld, Meijers, Bakkali, Oukili, Cleonise, Felida, Min, Kramer.

Player to Watch: Marco van Ginkel

It has been a great start to the campaign for Vitesse's Marco van Ginkel who scored a couple of goals in three appearances for a team he joined in this year's January transfer window from PSV Eindhoven. The 30-year-old returned to the club where he started his career over a decade ago and has accumulated a total of 127 matches for the club scoring 27 goals and delivering 20 assists.

Van Ginkel had an interesting career playing for Chelsea, AC Milan, Stoke City, and PSV, but it seems his future lies with the Arnhem outfit. The central midfield player has been capped by the Netherlands national team eight times.
