Vitesse vs PSV – Prediction, and Match Preview

Vitesse vs PSV – After losing to Sparta Rotterdam 3-1 in their most recent Eredivisie match, Vitesse will be looking to bounce back in this match.

Dominik Oroz (7′) was the lone Vitesse player to score. Sparta Rotterdam tallied goals through Arno Verschueren (11′), Koki Saito (45′), and Joshua Kitolano (87′).

Vitesse has rarely displayed defensive tenacity in recent games. The truth is that Vitesse have conceded 10 goals in their last 6 games while failing to stop their opponents from scoring in 5 of those games. Of course, there is no guarantee that this trend will continue.

According to pre-game stats, Vitesse has lost their last four league games to PSV Eindhoven. In the previous two league games, they have failed to triumph at home.

PSV Eindhoven enters this game after defeating SC Cambuur 5-2 in their prior Eredivisie contest. Xavi Simons (25′), Patrick van Aanholt (54′), Anwar El Ghazi (56′, 88′), and Fábio Silva (65′) scored goals for PSV Eindhoven. SC Cambuur tallied through Remco Balk (22′) and Bjrn Johnsen (61′).

Goals have been scored 22 times in the last 6 games in which PSV Eindhoven has sent out their soldiers, for an average of 3.67 goals per match, demonstrating their preference for fruitful encounters.

Six of those goals were scored by their opponents. PSV Eindhoven has won all three of its prior away league games entering this contest.

Vitesse vs PSV – Betting Analysis

Looking at their most recent head-to-head matches dating back to February 23, 2020, it can be seen that Vitesse has won one and PSV Eindhoven has won five, with no games being tied in that span of time.

Over the span of those games, the two clubs combined for 18 goals, with 4 coming from Vitas and 14 coming from Rood-Witten. That equals three goals per contest on average.

The prior league meeting between these clubs occurred on Eredivisie Match Day 17 on January 21, 2023, with PSV Eindhoven defeating Vitesse 1-0. Pol van Boekel was the umpire.

The Vitesse coach Phillip Cocu need only be worried about one player’s fitness because the team as a whole is strong. Cruciate Ligament Rupture sufferer Davy Pröpper is excluded.

Kjell Scherpen, Ryan Flamingo, Alois Dominik Oroz, Melle Meulensteen, Romaric Yapi, Marco van Ginkel, Matus Bero, Sondre Tronstad, Kacper Kozlowski, Mohamed Sankoh, and Million Manhoef appear to be the players Vitas should start in the game.

Ruud van Nistelrooy, the boss of PSV Eindhoven, must make decisions from a group that has some fitness issues. Thorgan Hazard (knock), Savio (hamstring injury), and Walter Bentez (knee surgery) are ineligible for consideration.

With Joel Drommel, Phillipp Mwene, Andre Ramalho Silva, Jarrad Branthwaite, Patrick Van Aanholt, Xavi Simons, Joey Veerman, Ibrahim Sangare, Johan Bakayoko, Guus Til, and Fábio Silva in the starting lineup, Rood-witten seem to be most likely to use a 4-3-3 configuration.

Although just one goal undoubtedly won’t be enough to prevent a loss, we believe Vitesse has what it takes to break through the PSV Eindhoven defense.
