Match Preview
Groningen make the trip to the Gelredome to face an in-form Vitesse side, who come into this Eredivisie (ERE) game in high spirits after winning away to high flying Zwolle. Groningen need a change of fortunes after winning just one of their last six league games.
Vitesse sold Milot Rashica to Bundesliga side Werder Bremen on transfer deadline day. Rashica was involved in more goals than any other player since making his debut with 13 goals and 16 assists. How will the Arnhemmers react to the loss of their key man?
Ernest Faber (GRO) has confirmed his departure at the end of the season, with ex player Danny Bruijs rumoured to be the man for the job. Bruijs made 67 appearances for Groningen (‘04-’06) and currently manages third tier Kozakken Boys.
Vitesse will look for back to back league wins for the first time since August. With top scorer Tim Matavz stuck on nine goals for the last three games, now would be the perfect time for him to hit double figures.
Players to watch: Brian Linssen (VIT) comes into this game fresh from scoring in the recent 2-1 victory over Zwolle. The attacking midfielder has been a consistent performer this term with seven goals already (ERE).
Mimoun Mahi is Groningen’s danger man – the club top scorer has seven goals to his name and comes in fresh from scoring last time out vs Heracles.
Stat attack: Groningen are winless in nine of their last ten away games, eight of those games saw both teams scoring and over 2.5 goals (ERE).
A tough to beat unit! Vitesse have been drawing at both half time and full time in five of their last seven home games, the last two games here have ended in a draw with both teams scoring (ERE).
