Vitesse vs FC Utrecht (By: Dajkula)
Vitesse welcomes Utrecht for the return match of the Europa League playoffs. Vitesse has 1:1 from the first match and doesn`t have to go for a win. That would be wrong thinking though as they already realized that Utrecht is a formidable team.
Utrecht should have won in the first match, especially after opening the game with intensive pressure. Some excellent chances were missed so now Vitesse has the advantage. But Vitesse will have to confirm that and play the game like they have no advantage. That would be the right approach.
Vitesse will be backed by the furious home crowd and they rarely missed their chances this season. Since August, Vitesse hasn`t lost at home and the last loss was to Ajax 0:4. In the next 17 matches, Vitesse has won 11 times while has also drawn 6 times.
Utrecht is a rather hit or miss on the away ground. They have 6-3-8 and 30:35 gd on the travels. Their performances have improved in the past months and Utrecht has lost just a couple of times. Looking it more closely, they won against the lower placed teams + Heracles. They often struggled against the top sides and lost all of those away matches.
Vitesse doesn`t have to win but I gather that they will.
The home side will be missing Gong, Beerens, Darfalou while Utrecht will be missing 3 regulars with some other players: Makienok, Guwara, Letschert, Jensen, Van Overeem, Bazoer.
