We are inclined to think that Vitas seem likely to begin the game with a 3-2-4-1 lineup with a starting lineup of Kjell Scherpen, Carlens Arcus, Dominik Oroz, Nicolas Isimat-Mirin, Ryan Flamingo, Maximilian Wittek, Million Manhoef, Melle Meulensteen, Marco van Ginkel, Kacper Kozlowski and Bartosz Bialek.

Accordingly, we see a decent 3-1 win for Feyenoord at full-time.
