Roda JC Kerkrade vs Vitesse Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Roda JC Kerkrade will be looking for their first victory of the new Eredivisie campaign when they welcome Vitesse at the Parkstad Limburg Stadion on Friday evening. Roda JC Kerkrade suffered a disappointing 4-2 defeat on the road at PEC Zwolle in the opening round of the new Eredivisie season last weekend despite the fact that Simon Gustafson netted a brace, including the opener. On the contrary, Vitesse won 4-1 at home against the newly-promoted NAC Breda thanks to goals from Thomas Bruns, Brian Linssen, Tim Matavz and Milot Rashica. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT preview.

Betting Predictions and Tips

Vitesse looked very solid last weekend, and they also hold an impressive head-to-head record over Roda. They should be able to win, but I’m also fancying them to score a couple of goals here. They have scored four goals last weekend while Roda conceded four. In addition, Vitesse netted at least two goals in four of their last five meetings with Roda in the Eredivisie.

Roda JC Kerkrade Preview

Roda JC Kerkrade had a perfect pre-season campaign, but they kicked off the new Eredivisie campaign with a 4-2 away defeat at the hands of PEC Zwolle. Simon Gustafson gave Roda the lead in the 22nd minute, but the hosts levelled the game just before the break. Zwolle began the second half well and took the lead through an own-goal from Adil Auassar, but the lead lasted less than ten minutes as Gustafson completed his brace just after the hour mark. However, Zwolle took the lead once again after just four minutes and made it 4-2 in the 74th minute. The only good news is that Feyenoord’s loanee Simon Gustafson looked dangerous in front of goal and he will probably be Roda’s most dangerous player in front of goal this season. At home, Roda have only lost once in their last eight home fixtures in the Eredivisie and are currently on a five-game unbeaten streak. The bad news is that Roda JC Kerkrade have suffered defeats in each of their last two home meetings with Vitesse in the Eredivisie, scoring just once in the process. Head-to-head, Roda are winless in their last five meetings with Vitesse since a 3-1 victory in the KNVB Beker Cup back in December 2013.

Roda JC Kerkrade Team News

Christiaan Kum is the only doubtful player for Roda ahead of this game.

Vitesse Preview

After losing the Dutch Super Cup at the hands of Feyenoord on penalties a fortnight ago, Vitesse bounced back with a comfortable 4-1 home win over NAC Breda in the Eredivisie last weekend. Vitesse have enjoyed a decent pre-season campaign, and they proved to be too strong for the newcomers NAC Breda last weekend. They had a 3-0 lead just after the half-hour mark, with Milot Rashica being the man of the match as he helped the team with one goal and one assist. This puts Vitesse on top of the Eredivisie table as they are the only team to have scored four goals in the opening round. The bad news is that Vitesse aren’t regarded as good travellers as they won four, lost five and draw two of their last eleven away games across all competitions. However, the Arnheim side should feel confident ahead of this clash as they have won the last five meetings with Roda JC Kerkrade in the Eredivisie, scoring at least two goals in four of these while conceding just once. In addition, Vitesse picked up back-to-back wins in their last two visits to the Parkstad Limburg Stadion, conceding just once in this term.

Vitesse Team News

There are no fresh injury concerns for Vitesse ahead of this clash.
