Vitesse vs Groningen – Prediction, and Match Preview
Vitesse vs Groningen – With a 2-0 victory over the bottom-dwelling Cambuur last weekend, Vitesse guaranteed their place in the top division.
With only two games remaining, they are six points ahead of Emmen in the relegation playoff spot and have a substantially stronger goal differential, so there is no way they can lose their position.
On Sunday, when they welcome FC Groningen in their final home game of the year, Philip Cocu’s team will have a great opportunity to close the season on a high note.
From its previous nine Eredivisie games, Groningen only earned one point. However, they did put in a respectable performance in Tuesday’s close 2-3 loss to Ajax at home.
Groningen’s recent performances have at least shown some signs of improvement because they also held Go Ahead Eagles to a 1-1 draw in their previous road game.
We wouldn’t be surprised if the visitors managed to hold off their rivals on Sunday in Arnhem given that Vitesse hasn’t exactly been the most productive club in the league lately.
In each of the previous three league games, Vitesse has failed to score, and seven out of the previous eight Eredivisie games they played ended with fewer than three goals scored.
