Match: Petrolul Ploeiesti - Vitesse Arnhem
Competition: UEFA Europa League
Pick: Vitesse Double Chance (X2)
Odds: 1.73 (maybe higher on Betfair)
Vitesse will play Petrolul away in their first Europa League match. Petrolul is considered favorite by the bookies.
Vitesse, has got to see some big players leave. Van Ginkel and Kalas
left for Chelsea and Bony was finally transferred after a transfersoap
to Swansea City. This will be a great loss for Vitesse, as they were the
strongholders of last season. But still Vitesse has a great squad.
Squad Vitese for this match: Van Aanholt, Chanturia, Van
der Heijden, Houwen, Ibarra, Janssen, Kakuta, Kashia, Leerdam, Mori,
Pedersen, Pröpper, Qazaishvili, Reis, Van der Struijk, Tighadouini,
Vejinovic, Velthuizen, Vink
Pedersen has come back from a loan in Scandinavia, and did well and
also played a good EURO U21. I think Vitesse has a better and at least
even aquad with Petrolul.
Vitesse did not had a great pre-season in results, but showed some good play in most of the games.
Petrolul won easy with 0-7 in two legs from Vikingur. Vikingur is
nothing compared to Vitesse, so they will be facing a real other level
Personally I am thinking this will end in a draw, but you never know
if Reis/Pedersen , Ibarra and Kakuta will stand up today already so a
protection in a Vitesse win is very nice.
I recommend placing this bet at the Asian Handicap market at Betfair.
Betfair is at the moment only charging 0.5% comission and you will get a
far better price. So Vitesse +0.5 if you decide to do this.
