Our prediction for this KNVB Cup match:
Cambuur Stadion will host the KNVB Beker clash between Cambuur and Vitesse. The hosts head into the match following a 1-1 draw with Willem II and they are surely capable of matching the Vitas in front of home fans. Guinea defender Sekou Sylla is a major doubt after representing his homeland at the Africa Cup of Nations, while both Caschili and Schaapman should miss out with injuries.
Vitesse, on the other hand, are eager to put an end to their three-game losing run and given their difficulties in front of goal, we believe that there is a big value in betting on Henk de Jong’s troops. As for the away team, both Miliano Jonathans and Fode Fofana are major doubts, while Edward Sturing has no fresh injury worries ahead of the Dutch Cup game. In their last meeting in a competitive match Vitesse defeated Cambuur 2-0, meaning that the hosts are hungry for revenge.
Highlighted Team (Vitesse):
Nicknamed Vitas, the proud of Gelderland, Vitesse are a Dutch football club based in Arnhem. Vitesse compete in the Dutch Eredivisie and they have yet to win the national championship. However, they finished as runners-up in the Dutch elite division on five occasions (1897–98, 1902–03, 1912–13, 1913–14, 1914–15), while clinching third place in the standings in the 1997/1998 season.
Vitesse did remarkably well to win the 2016/2017 Dutch Cup title, with the team beating AZ Alkmaar in the final at De Kuip in Rotterdam. As a result, the Vitas booked their place in the Europa League group stages where they face the likes of Lazio, Nice and Zulte-Waregem.
Vitesse are well known for their yellow jerseys with black stripes, while the club’s away colour is black. GelreDome is the home ground of the Dutch team and the capacity of the venue is 21.248. It has to be noted that famous Spanish footballer Albert Ferrer was in charge of the club in the 2010/2011 season.
