Vitesse Arnhem vs Groningen Match Preview
Vitesse will be hoping their away goal in the first leg proves important as they try to overturn a deficit to reach the final of the Europa League play-off in the Netherlands.
It was an English player, Max Clark, formerly of Hull City, who netted for Vitesse as they pulled the tie back to 2-1 on Saturday after Mimoun Mahi and Samir Memisevic (penalty) had appeared to put Groningen in control.
In the Eredivisie this season, Vitesse and Groningen finished fifth and eighth respectively, sandwiching Utrecht and Heracles Almelo who are contesting the other semi-final with a place in the Europa League play-offs at stake for the eventual winner among the quartet.
Champions Ajax and runners-up PSV Eindhoven will, of course, go into the Champions League, while Feyenoord and AZ Alkmaar are in the Europa League qualifiers after finishing third and fourth respectively.
Having finished eight points ahead of Groningen in the regular season, Vitesse are now odds-on favourites to win at home in 90 minutes but it still appears very much a toss-up as to which of the duo will advance.
We would not be surprised if Groningen clung on, but in terms of the most appealing wager on this game we are particularly keen on both teams to score – because that has occurred in six of the last seven meetings between these clubs.
