Jay-Roy Grot (70') scored for Vitesse.

In their last fixture, Fortuna Sittard drew 1-1 in the Eredivisie match with FC Zwolle.
The only name on the scoresheet from Fortuna Sittard was George Cox (71'). Lennart Thy (90') was the scorer for FC Zwolle.

Team News: FC Twente
FC Twente boss Ron Jans will be thankful to have no fitness worries to speak of coming into this clash owing to a fully healthy group ready to go.
We think that De Tukkers will possibly line up in a 4-3-3 formation for this game, beginning the first half with Joel Drommel, Gijs Smal, Dario Dumic, Xandro Schenk, Tyronne Ebuehi, Lindon Selahi, Godfried Roemeratoe, Jesse Bosch, Queensy Menig, Alexander Jeremejeff and Vaclav Cerny.
Team News: Fortuna Sittard
From a largely full-strength group of players, there’s only the sole fitness problem for the Fortuna Sittard manager Kevin Hofland to be concerned with. Djibril Dianessy (Knee Injury) won’t be in action.
From our viewpoint, Sittard seem likely to play in a 4-3-3 formation, choosing Alexei Koselev, Lazaros Rota, Branislav Ninaj, Martin Angha, George Cox, Jorrit Smeets, Mats Seuntjens, Nassim el Ablak, Zian Flemming, Sebastian Polter and Emil Hansson.
In our view, Fortuna Sittard are capable enough to score against this FC Twente side, but that realistically won’t prevent them from conceding a couple at the other end.
We can see a very close game with a 2-1 winning margin for FC Twente at the end of the 90 minutes. Should be an interesting one.
