      Vitesse vs Zwolle Predictions

      It might seem strange to say this about a sixth place team chasing a Europa League spot, but Vitesse’s 1-0 loss to Ajax at the weekend was a good defeat. They showed some grit, defensive determination and several qualities that hopefully bode well fro Vitesse’s prospects moving deeper into the second half of the Dutch football season.

      In general, their form has been superb. In the two games prior to the Ajax loss, they had thrashed Twente 5-1 and beaten Cambuur 2-0.

      On Wednesday, PEC Zwolle will be their opponent. Zwolle are in eighth place and have swung wildly from Europa League contender to potentially in danger. They score a lot of goals, 33 in 19 games, but conceding 28 times is the club’s problem.

      Three Reasons for Betting Tips

      1. Vitesse keep up good form

      They’ve played good football over the last couple of months and we think they ought to be favourites to win the “best of the rest” tag, eventually finishing in fourth place.

      2. Vitesse are more balanced

      It’s no surprise that the Over 2.5 comes in at 19/40 in this match-up, that’s possibly a decent number actually. However, Vitesse are the slightly better football team overall in our view and that’s why we’ll back them to win.

      3. Zwolle’s over-reliance on scoring lots of goals

      Self-explanatory reason, they won’t be able to control the pace and flow against Vitesse and it’ll catch them out.
