Vitesse vs Groningen Football Betting Tips
The Vitesse team finished the Eredivisie regular round in fifth place in the league with 53 points from Utrecht and five fewer than AZ. With that, it gained the right to dispute the playoff of clearance for Liga Europa, where in the first leg of the semifinals they were beaten 2-1 at Groningen by now having the disadvantage of a goal to reverse if they want to reach the playoff finals and be able to discuss their presence in the 2019/20 UEFA competition . Slutskiy’s team closed the regular season with two wins against De Graafschap (6-1) and Venlo (3-1).
Groningen came in 8th place with 45 points, the same as ADO Den Haag, but ended up with a better goal difference and benefited from Ajax having won the Dutch Cup final to play the qualifying playoff for the Europa League.
In advantage after a 2-1 triumph at home in the first leg, the team will now have to draw at least at Arnhem to feed the dream and hope to be one of the clubs representing the Dutch nation in the next edition of the League Europe. On the last day of the Eredivisie, Groningen lost 1-0 at Emmen.
Our Betting Tip Explained Vitesse vs Groningen
Without the quality and consistency required to rival the title contenders and even Feyenoord, this Vitesse has not ceased to be one of the most interesting teams in this edition of the Eredivisie.
Playing at home, I believe that the Russian Leonid Slutskiy’s experience could be decisive for the team to be able to reverse the loss of the first leg and move on to the playoff finals.
Groningen’s team are struggling to play and, being a side that suffers less but still scores much less than Vitesse, could be a bit of a challenge to take on the advantage gained last Saturday.
