Vitesse Prediction – Can Vitesse continue unbeaten start?

Friday night’s hosts, Vitesse, still remain unbeaten after the first two matches of the new Dutch top flight season after a creditable 2-2 draw at home with Ajax followed by last weekend’s 2-0 win away at Willem II to give the home side 4 points from these two matches.

Vitesse’s actually bring a 5-match unbeaten sequence into this Friday night clash with PEC Zwolle at their GelreDome having recorded a 1-0 win away at Darmstadt along with draws against Sivasspor and Bayer Leverkusen which were all registered in their pre-season friendlies.

Last season, Vitesse finished in 5th place in the Eredivisie and therefore qualified for the final stages of the domestic season where they challenged for a Europa League spot. The semi-finals saw Vitesse record a 4-3 aggregate win over Groningen but then fell at the final hurdle when they lost 3-1 to Utrecht in the play-off final.

Nevertheless, it was a successful campaign for Vitesse who’ll no doubt be looking to go one step better this time around. Overall form has been solid enough for the hosts who have lost just 1 of their last 5 matches, while at home, Vitesse have lost just 1 of their last 18 matches at their GelreDome in the Eredivisie.

Zwolle Prediction – Can Zwolle avoid third defeat on trot?

After being on the receiving end of back-to-back defeats at the start of this new season in the Eredivisie, PEC Zwolle will make their way to Arhem on Friday night looking to avoid a third defeat on the trot as they seek to get on the board against Vitesse.

Losses to Willem II in a 3-1 loss at home on the opening day of the Dutch top flight season was followed by another 3-1 loss away at Utrecht. It’s therefore been a poor start to PEC Zwolle’s new campaign and a third defeat on the trot here would really put them in a worrying situation.

Last season, Zwolle finished in a lowly 13th place on the Eredivisie league ladder but held a comfortable 6-point cushion ahead of third from bottom club, Excelsior, who occupied the last relegation play-off spot.

The visitors have now lost 3 of their last 4 matches in the Dutch top flight, and this trip to face an in-form Vitesse outfit will be a big test to see if they can bounce back and get something from this clash.

However, having lost their last 3 matches against Vitesse, this trip looks a tall order for them here.


Key-Facts – Vitesse v Zwolle

  • Vitesse have lost just 1 of their last 18 matches at their GelreDome
  • PEC Zwolle have lost 3 of their last 4 matches in the Eredivisie
  • Vitesse have won the last 3 meetings on the trot against PEC Zwolle


Betting Tips Verdict

Vitesse have made a solid start to this new season and they should grab the points and cover the asian handicap line too in perhaps a 2-0 win.
