Vitesse vs Twente by Sunshine
Vitesse failed to get a victory for the second consecutive match last weekend as they were held to a 1:1 draw in away match against Roda last weekend. Both teams had their ups and downs during the game, missing several great chances to get the victory, while the final draw seems like a fair outcome for both sides.
Still, Vitesse took the lead in 62nd minute, but conceded only seven minutes later for the final 1:1 result. Coach was satisfied with his players, saying that they had better chances and can't be happy with the draw only, but also saying that he saw improvement in their game and that the team only needs a bit more time in order to start playing more fluently. Still, Vitesse lost few important players during the transfer window and it will be very difficult for them to remain at the same classy performances they did last season. Nevertheless, they have enough talent and are expected to improve the performances over time. So far, they are facing many problems, especially in the defense, while the team has loaned their Norwegian striker Pedersen to Barnsley three days ago.
Young winger Chanturia is punished with the suspension for seven matches, while remain outside of the action precious winger Kakuta with an injury.
Twente is coming from the second consecutive victory in the league, winning in a great way with the result of 6:0 over Utrecht last weekend at home. Hosts took the lead in second minute and were dominant on the pitch for whole ninety minute, while they gave out a true spectacle to their fans.
Coach Michael Janses was happy with the team's performance, saying that they played good football and deservedly won the match with a big scoreline. However, the team remains in the similar process like their today's opponents, as they are also to overcome losing some of good players this Summer. They have showed that they have great talent inside their roster and are surely in a better form than Vitesse, while one of the biggest problems for them may be consistency on such a big level. Valuable midfielder Brama didn't overcome injury, while recently acquired goalkeeper Stevens also remains sidelined, same as left back Schilder, all three being injured from the start of the season.
Twente is surely a bit more closer to get the victory, but Vitesse is showing signs of improvement and the guests can't be trusted completely in a local derby game. However, the match should be open one, as the guests are working perfectly in attack and the chances for more than two goals scored are much higher than the bookmakers represent.
