Market: Vitesse and FC Utrecht both to score

Odds: 4/7 @ Bet365

With just one more European position up for grabs, Vitesse will welcome FC Utrecht to GelreDome as the pair will faceoff in the Dutch Eredivisie Europa League play-off on Tuesday night.

For Edward Sturing’s Vitesse side, after securing sixth spot in Holland this year, it seems that the Yellow and Blacks have saved their best form till the end of the season. Coming off the back of a 2-1 win against ADO Den Haag over the weekend, Vitesse have now scored 14 in their last four outings. However, the hosts have shipped five in return and all bar one of their last 10 matchups against Utrecht have seen both teams fine the net. The two to watch for Vitesse will be both Bryan Linssen and Tim Matavz, the pair finished the Dutch Eredivisie season with 32 goals between them and finished joint fifth in the goal scoring charts.

As for Utrecht, now seen to be a solid part of the Dutch Eredivisie Top Six, the Reds confirmed their fourth consecutive Top Six finish with plenty of time of spare. However, Utrecht only managed to pick up two wins out of their last nine domestic matchups and while they have found the net in nine of their last 10, Jean-Paul de Jong’s side have only managed to keep one clean sheet in their last 15. One man to watch for the guests will be playmaker Zakaria Labyad, along with scoring 13 for the season, the 25-year-old is coming off the back of scoring a brace against SC Heerenveen last weekend and the Moroccan international now has four in his last five for The Reds.
