Our prediction for this Netherlands Eredivisie match:
Vitesse and Excelsior square off against each other at GelreDome in the Eredivisie round 8. The Vitas desperately needed a win against Nijmegen and they managed to get one, with the team putting an end to their five-game losing run in the Dutch top flight. All Fode Fofana, Amine Boutrah, and Mathijs Tielemans remain in the recovery room.
The Rotterdammers, on the other hand, aim to build on back-to-back wins over Heerenveen (3-0) and Sparta Rotterdam (2-1) and given their signs of improvement in front of goal, we believe that punters from all around the globe can find value in betting on over 2.5 goals. There are no fresh injury worries in the visiting team ahead of the trip to Arnhem. Keep in mind, though, that the two sides played out a goalless draw in their last meeting in the Dutch elite division.
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.
