Vitesse vs Utrecht PREVIEW & PREDICTION 15/05/2018


First leg in the final tie for the last vacant position that gives access to the Europa League in the Netherlands next year. Vitesse and Utrecht have gone to the next round and tomorrow they play the first game. Qualifying a priori matched and I hope it is quite exciting. My forecast for tomorrow is that both teams score and there are more than 2.5 goals in the match.

The Vitesse finished the sixth season in the Eredivisie with 49 points. In the 34 days managed to get 63 goals and received 47 goals. In the previous tie he eliminated the Den Haag.

On the part of Utrecht finished the fifth league with 54 points. I think he’s slightly favorite to get the Europa League vacancy, as well as having the second leg at home. In the Eredivisie he obtained even numbers in terms of goals, getting 58 goals and receiving 53. He comes from eliminating Heerenveen.

In the round trips of the previous phase there have been goals by a tube and in the 4 games we would have obtained a hypothetical green.
The Vitesse won its two matches. In the first leg 2-5 and on Saturday he certified the pass winning at home 2-1.
The Utrecht in the first leg lost 4-3 but closed the classification winning in its stadium 2-1, making valid the importance of putting goal away from home.

In the league games between them the results have been:

. 1-1 at Vitesse’s home (10/01/17)
. 5-1 at home of Utrecht (03/11/18)

I think the part of the forecast that both teams score is feasible. Utrecht have shown how crucial it is to score as a visitor. Both have goalscoring potential and back weak at times, so I hope tomorrow something similar happens. More than 2.5 goals? I think also although I’m a little concerned that they have accumulated fatigue in the legs and tomorrow are both sets a little bald leaving everything for the second leg on Saturday.

I hope the reading is good and can add a green. Good luck to everyone in the forecasts and have a good week.

PREDICTION: Over 2.5 goals @ 1.70
