ADO Den Haag vs Vitesse Predictions
- Both teams scored in 4 of the last 5 meetings between these two clubs.
- Both teams scored in 3 of Den Haag’s and 3 of Vitesse’s last 6 matches (including friendlies).
- Vitesse are unbeaten in their last 7 competitive matches.
- Den Haag have lost 4 games at home already this season.
Vitesse are enjoying a 7-game unbeaten run in league and cup
Den Haag lost 4-0 away at Utrecht last time out and will be hoping for a response from their players on Saturday, while Vitesse were held to a point at home by Emmen but remain unbeaten in their last seven league and cup games. The visitors have won three of their last seven matches against Den Haag and both teams have scored in four of the duos’ last five encounters.
The hosts have already lost four times in their own backyard this season while Vitesse have secured five wins and one draw from their ten away games, so you can see why we fancy the visitors to pinch all 3pts on Saturday. Den Haag only average 1.00 points per home game while Vitesse average 1.60 points per away game; with the hosts scoring an average of 1.10 goals per home game and conceding 1.40 goals and the visitors scoring an average of 1.80 goals per away game and conceding 1.50, you can see just why we have backed a final scoreline of 2-1 in Vitesse;’s favour.
Both teams have scored in 50% of Den Haag’s home games and Vitesse’s away games so far this season, with 70% of the visitors’ matches on the road producing over 2.5 goals, adding further weight to our prediction for a 2-1 final score. Den Haag have only scored 11 goals at home so far, which has been an issue for the club this season, while Vitesse have scored as many goals as they have on the road (18).
Den Haag have already lost 4 home games in the Eredivisie
The hosts have only kept clean sheets in 30% of their home games this season, as have Vitesse on the road, and have only failed to score in 30% of matches in their own backyard, which is why we have backed the hosts to score despite expecting them to lose this weekend. Exactly 3-goals have been scored in 30% of Vitesse’s away games and we’re backing that same total of goals to feature in Saturday’s clash.
Four of Den Haag’s defeats in the league this season have been via a 1-goal margin while Vitesse have won by a 1-goal margin on three occasions so far. Vitesse have netted in 80% of their away games, scoring 2 or more goals in each of their last three trips on the road.
We’re confident that both teams will score in Saturday’s clash and we have predicted a final scoreline of 2-1 in favour of Vitesse. The visitors arrive in the midst of a seven-game unbeaten run while second from bottom Den Haag head into Saturday’s match on the back of a disappointing 4-0 defeat at Utrecht, and we expect the hosts’ misery to continue this weekend as well.
