Our prediction for this Netherlands Eredivisie match:
GelreDome will host Sunday’s matinee between Vitesse and Go Ahead Eagles, the two teams with entirely different ambitions for the remainder of the season. The Vitas are eager to put an end to their four-game winless run and they are likely to fight tooth and nail against Go Ahead Eagles. Both Melle Meulensteen and Mathijs Tielemans limped off with injury in a 1-0 loss to Zwolle, with both Toni Domgjoni and Thomas Butink likely to step up.
The Yellow-Reds, on the other hand, have been having their ups and downs of late, with the team losing to Ajax, beating Sparta Rotterdam, while sharing the spoils with NEC Nijmegen. As for the away side, Evert Linthorst has joined Philippe Rommens in the recovery room, while Bas Kuipers serves a one-game ban due to the accumulation of yellow cards. Anyhow, away win should be considered as Go Ahead Eagles have improved offensively in January.
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.
