Our prediction for this Netherlands Eredivisie match:
All eyes will be on GelreDome when Vitesse and Twente square off against each other in the Eredivisie round 22. The Vitas head into the match following a 1-0 win over Excelsior in the KNVB Beker where Openda scored the winner in the stoppage time. Vitesse aim to put an end to their three-game winless run in the Eredivisie, and we are positive that they will find the net in Sunday’s clash.
Twente, on the other hand, suffered a heavy 3-0 loss to PSV in their last league match, with the team extending their goalless run to four games. Since the Reds are desperate to put an end to their goalless run, both teams to score betting option should be considered. Talented Serbia midfielder is banned following his sending off in the defeat to PSV. Anyhow, an entertaining encounter is on the cards at GelreDome.
Highlighted Player (Keisuke Honda):
Keisuke Honda is considered one of the most famous Japanese footballers. Honda was born in Settsu, Osaka on June 13, 1986 and he started his youth career at his hometown club Settsu FC. In 2004 he signed a professional contract with Nagoya Grampus and he played for the J1-League club from 2004 to 2007.
The left-footed midfielder then moved to Europe, signing a deal with VVV-Venlo on January 16, 2008 and it has to be noted that he scored 24 goals in 68 league appearances for the Dutch outfit.

Based in the city of Enschede, Twente is a Dutch football club that welcomes their rivals at De Grolsch Veste. The venue was opened on May 10, 1998, and the capacity of the stadium is 30,205 people. The club was founded in 1965 as a merger of Sportsclub Enschede and Enschedese Boys.

As a result, Twente booked their place in the Champions League group stages. The Reds did well to collect six points in their group, but that did not help them make it to the last 16.
Twente are well known for their red jerseys, but they wear dark blue shirts when playing on the travels. The Reds take on Heracles Almelo in the Twentse Derby. Sander Boshchker is leading Twente’s all-time goal-scoring chart with 653 goals on his account.
