Team News: Heracles Almelo
There aren’t many personnel worries, with just the sole fitness concern for the Heracles Almelo boss Frank Wormuth to be concerned about from a near full-strength squad. Navajo Bakboord (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) is out of contention.
Team News: Vitesse
Out of a mainly available group, there’s just a single fitness issue for the Vitesse boss Thomas Letsch to contend with. Armando Broja (Corona virus) misses out for this game.
We’re inclined to think that Heracles Almelo may not find it easy to register a score against this Vitesse side who we think might score & stay on top.
That’s why we have predicted a good battle with a 0-1 winning score for Vitesse at the end of the 90.
It should be a good one.
