Vitesse to Win

Reason for tip

Excelsior make their return to the top flight and will undoubtedly face a much tougher challenge from Vitesse than they did against Cambuur in round one. Notably, Vitesse ran out winners in six of the last eight H2Hs in Rotterdam and we predict a similar result will ensue.

Vitesse 2-1

Reason for tip

Excelsior scored twice in a comfortable win in round one while Vitesse conceded five times against their city rivals Feyenoord. As such, we think that Vitesse will win but it will be a case of outscoring their opponents to make up for a rather porous backline.

Excelsior vs Vitesse Predictions

  • Excelsior lost six of the last eight home H2H encounters.
  • Only four sides had a stronger away record than Vitesse last term.
  • Four of Vitesse’s last five away wins also saw both teams score.

Can Excelsior exceed expectations?

Rotterdam plays host to this top flight clash between Excelsior and Vitesse, but it was the Eredivisie new boys who got their campaign off to a flying start for the fourth straight season when playing at this level with a 2-0 win away to Cambuur.

Returning home should be a good omen then, though the challenge posed by perennial European challengers Vitesse is much more considerable than that of their round one opponents.

Notably, six of the last eight clashes between these sides here went the way of Vitesse, so Excelsior will do well to err on the side of caution.

Vitesse need to get up and running

After losing by a demoralising 5-2 scoreline against Feyenoord on the opening day, Vitesse now turn their attention to the other Rotterdam outfit to get something on the board.

Visiting boss Thomas Letsch won his only prior personal H2H with Excelsior and he will hope to double up on that victory in order to get Vitesse’s latest European play-off charge underway. Encouragingly, Vitesse were the fifth strongest travelling Eredivisie side last term, so playing away shouldn’t cause issues.

We predict that Vitesse will win this game and justify favouritism, though we’re going for 2-1 in the correct score market as Excelsior can certainly find gaps ina  defence that shipped five goals against their neighbours last time out!
