Vitesse - Feyenoord
Vitesse will welcome Feyenoord in the round 25 of the Eredivisie. The visitors are set as solid favorites but a good question is why. Feyenoord is hardly showing some good performances on the road even though they did take 1:1 with PSV. Vitesse is rock solid at home and they only lost to Ajax here though they seem to always concede goals.
Vitess is ranked fifth with 39 points while Feyenoord is third with 46 points. This is a match for third place and if Vitesse wins today they are right in it.
Vitesse has 8-3-1 at home but as I said there are goals in their matches. The last time they hosted NAC the game ended 4:1 but they were trailing till the last half an hour. 8 of their last 9 home matches have gone over 2.5 goals and mostly over 3.5 goals. The results of their last 4 home matches are Excelsior 3:2, Heerenveen 2:2, Willem II 3:2, NAC 4:1. They faced much weaker sides but they regularly conceded 2 goals.
Feyenoord lost in the cup against Ajax 0:3 so there will be no cup this season. They can focus on the league entirely so maybe we could see some better performances on the road. Feyenoord has really been struggling away from home and lastly, they lost to Zwolle 3:1, Excelsior 2:1, Groningen 1:0.
At least Vitesse suits them better as they won in 3 of the last 4 league visits to this ground. Feyenoord has been in a topsy turvy form of late winning 3 of the last 6 matches. They have 3-4-5 away from home and 28:20 gd. I think they are due for a solid result on the road.
I must say I fancied to take the home side in this one but Vitesse has big problems with injuries.
Their defensive rock Clarke Salter(21-1) is injured and so are Serero(mid.21-0), Darfalou(att.21-5), Matavz(att.7-5), Musonda(mid.0-0). Without Clarke, it will be hard to keep the net clean.
Feyenoord has doubts over Vilhena(mid.24-5) while Bijlow(keeper,16-0) is injured.
I can see at least 3 goals in this match.
