Vitesse settled a good result in Romania with the 1-1 draw. The game was pretty open, Vitesse was the better side till Vitesse scored 0-1. After the 0-1 Petrolul began pushing and the Vitesse defence was not solid at all stages.

This weekend Vitesse played home against Heracles Almelo. This was an very attractive game against the old club of Peter Bosz, you would not expect less cause he loves attacking football. Vitesse, in the end, won easily with 3-1. The score could have be much higher, but Heracles also conceded 8 shots on target. Was this the achievement of Heracles of was the Vitesse defence again not very well. I would say both, but the Vitesse defence already looked better than last week in Romania. Especially keeper Velthuizen seems in great form, had some incredible saves and seems to getting back to his old level, when he reached the Dutch squad.

Overall, I was not impressed with the Petrolul side last week. I think if Vitesse can maintain the attacking game they showed last weekend and be a more solid in defende a victory is very appealing, especially because they are playing at home. I see some value in the home win. Vitesse has to win if get a 0-0 draw to go trough. Keeping Bosz's approach in mind, I think Vitesse will play safe, want to impress the crowd again and will go for the victory.
