Our prediction for this Netherlands Eredivisie match:
Friday’s football game between Volendam and Vitesse will raise the curtain on the 2023/2024 Eredivisie campaign. Volendam did well to secure the Eredivisie survival last season and their goal remains unchanged in the upcoming campaign. A man to watch in the home team will be key midfielder Carel Eiting, while loanee Garang Kuol should make his Eredivisie debut against Vitesse.
The visitors, on the other hand, were struggling at the back in preseason, with the team suffering a heavy 4-1 loss to Getafe in their last warm-up game and, taking everything into account, we believe that both teams to score betting option should be considered. It has to be noted that the Vitas forward Thomas Buitink misses the opening match of the season with an ACL injury. In their last meeting at the venue Volendam recorded a 2-0 win over Vitesse.
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.
