All Vitesse v Den Haag game predictions, stats and user poll are shown below - plus the latest betting odds.
Vitesse will be hoping for a repeat of their last result, following the 1-2 Eredivisie success against FC Twente.
In that game, Vitesse had 67% possession and 20 shots at goal with 6 of them on target. The only player to score for Vitesse was Oussama Tannane (44', 95'). For their opponents, FC Twente had 2 shots at goal with 1 of them on target. Danilo Pereira (20') was the scorer for FC Twente.
Their latest results shine a light on the fact that not much more can be done by the Vitesse rearguard. Vitas have been stingy, with the number of goals that have flown into the back of their net over the course of their past six clashes standing at 4.
Their past results show that Vitesse:
- are unbeaten in the league by ADO Den Haag in their previous 2 games.
- haven't been defeated in their previous 3 home league matches.
ADO Den Haag
Since being defeated in their last game at the hands of FC Utrecht in Eredivisie competition, Den Haag will be hoping to turn things around here.
In that game, ADO Den Haag had 45% possession and 8 shots at goal with 1 of them on target. The only player on the scoresheet for ADO Den Haag was Jonas Arweiler (72'). At the other end, FC Utrecht got 22 attempts on goal with 8 of them on target. Gyrano Kerk (10'), Joris van Overeem (16'), Othmane Boussaid (43') and Adam Maher (74') scored for FC Utrecht.
The attacking players from Den Haag have been starved of goals in their past 6 encounters, netting the disappointing return of just 3. In those fixtures, De Residentieclub have also seen the collective goal tally of opposing teams equal 15. Putting that to one side, we will just have to wait and see if such a trend shall continue on in this upcoming game.
Looking at their past form shows that ADO Den Haag:
- have not been beaten by Vitesse in games played away from home for the previous 2 league matches.
- have not won away from home in their last 6 league games.
Head to head
Checking on their prior head-to-head clashes dating back to 22/09/2018 shows us that Vitesse have won 2 of them and Den Haag 1, with the tally of drawn results being 3.
An aggregate of 15 goals were yielded between them during those clashes, with 8 of them from Vitas and 7 for De Residentieclub. That is an average goals per game value of 2.5.
Team News: Vitesse
Regarding absentees, there’s just the sole fitness concern for the Vitesse manager Thomas Letsch to be concerned about from a near full-strength set of players. Remko Pasveer (groin strain) won’t play.
Team News: Den Haag
Den Haag boss Ruud Brood has a number of players out of action. Jamal Amofa (Unknown Injury), Dario Del Fabro (Unknown Injury), Youness Mokhtar (Unknown Injury), Michiel Kramer (Knee Injury), Peet Bijen (Heel Bone Injury), Nasser El Khayati (Unknown Injury) and Daryl Janmaat (Knee Injury) are not able to play.
Our assessment is that Vitesse will most probably dominate possession and create several successful chances.
At the same time, Den Haag will not find it easy to get shooting opportunities but we do think it’s quite likely that they will be hitting back at some stage.
We’re therefore anticipating a 3-1 winning score for Vitesse at full-time.
