Odds: 1/1 @ Bet 365

Playing out a 1-1 draw in the first-leg last week, Vitesse will welcome Utrecht to the GelreDome on Tuesday night as they look to secure a Europa League return.

Starting with the hosts, managing to play out a 1-1 draw when they made the trip to Utrecht last week, Vitesse will be confident of securing a Europa League spot for the GelreDome this year. Tasting defeat just once since the 24th of April and continuing to shine in the final third, Head Coach Leonid Slutsky will be most impressed by his sides’ performances on home soil. Scoring 13 goals in just their last three matches in Arnhem, including a 6-1 win at home to De Graafschap earlier in the month, Tuesday’s hosts are yet to taste defeat in front of their own supporters since the start of September. One man to watch in midweek will be Real Madrid loanee, Martin Odegaard. The Norweigan star has bagged three goals in his last five appearances, including scoring in back-to-back encounters at the GelreDome.

As for the visitors, while Utrecht may have saved their best performances for the back end of the season, former Holland boss Dick Advocaat will still be concerned by his sides’ performances on the road. The Red and Whites have lost three of their last four matches away from the Stadion Galgenwaard, including a 5-1 hammering away at ADO Den Haag last month. Along with Utrecht’s very public issues on the road, Tuesday’s visitors also hold a far from convincing record against Vitesse. Advocaat’s side have failed to win any of their last five matches against the Yellow and Blacks have never picked up a victory at the GelreDome in their history.
