Vitesse vs NEC Nijmegen by Meese
Vitesse couldn't do much more in their most recent game played in Eredivisie, as the team suffered narrow 1:0 defeat away to PSV Eindhoven two weeks ago. Ball possession between the opponents was pretty much shared, however must be said that the home players had way better and much more of chances created.
Therefore, their victory was completely fair, since it came with a goal from de Jong in 50th minute, while the players of Vitesse didn't find a way to make a proper response further on and couldn't reply back. Nobody will be disappointed with such outcome since it was expected, as the side continues be inside the play-off zone with just two points more than eight placed Heerenveen and remain in the must win position for this game.
Hosts are set to play in 4-3-3 formation with Rashica, Foor and Wolfswinkel as forwards. Central defender Maikel van der Wefff (16/0) is injured, same as forward Arshak Koryan (3/0).
NEC Nijmegen, on the other side, comes into this match after another loss two weeks ago - this time in front of own fans against modest side Utrecht with a 0:3 result. Players of NEC did almost nothing in attack and the visiting side proved to be way more concrete, dangerous and more mature on the field.
Labyad opened up the scoreline in 28th minute, while the guests soon had the double lead thanks to Ayoub in 37th, with Haller sealing the victory in 63rd minute, while the hosts almost had no response whatsoever. It was seventh defeat in last eight matches in Eredivisie for NIjemegen, as the side remains above the relegation zone having five points more than relegating placed Roda.
Visitors are set to play in 3-5-2 formation with Rayhi and Grot as forwards. Right defender Mikael Dyrestam (17/0) is only injury absentee for the guests.
Vitesse is doing fine at the moment and surely having much more of offensive potential and quality overall in comparison to Nijmegen. Visitors are far away from their best form and I don't see them staying competitive for too long here.
