A big weekend of Eredivisie clashes in Week 21 starting with the huge title chasing clash between Feyenoord and Vitesse. Will Burns is here with a prediction and like all his tips, you will not see a ‘best bet’ under evens – good luck!
Friday 31st January
FEYENOORD vs. VITESSE – 19:00
Both sides will looking to bounce back from last week’s disappointing displays. Feyenoord were defeated 3-2 away to ADO and Vitesse were held to a 1-1 draw at home to relegation battlers NEC.
As Ajax overcome Go Ahead Eagles, the Amsterdammers are now two points ahead of Vitesse (41 pts) at the top of the league and will want to try to take out one of their rivals, Feyenoord (36 pts) on Friday night.
Vitesse, currently 2nd, have their captain Guram Kashia returning for the clash at De Kuip, while Feyenoord’s experienced defender Joris Mathijsen is missing due to an eye injury. Ronald Koeman has another injury worry as he may be without Tonny Vilhena with an ankle problem.
Vitesse are on a fantastic run and have not been defeated for 11 Eredivisie games now and travel to Feyenoord fully aware of the dangers ahead. Although, the last three matches have seen the Arnhem suffer a bit of a blip giving up a lead each time to draw twice and win once. Bosz’s men will have to be aware of the chances created by Feyenoord for Italian striker Graziano Pellè, who has scored 15 goals in 18 games in the league this season.
With both sides knowing that victory is only good enough for this one, there will be goals aplenty but I can see them cancelling each other out.
