Den Haag vs Vitesse

Den Haag continued their winless streak in Eredivisie last Saturday evening as the side took a point in a 1:1 draw away from home against Heracles. They are without a victory in last three rounds, taking a point against Venlo and losing away to Feyenoord, but the side still can regard this outcome as a positive one.
Players of Heracles were slight favorites before the clash, however guests were the ones who looked better in the first halftime, simply being more concrete overall on the field and taking the lead in 21st minute via Johnsen. However, once the second halftime has started, players of Heracles showed their quality and were way more serious with the ball to their feet.
They leveled up in 54th minute with a goal from Niemeijer not being able to make that further extra step in overall fair outcome. The side is now at tenth position, having six points less than play-off placed sides and having one of last chances to get back into the battle for top seven positions.
Home side should be playing in a version of 4-2-3-1 formation with Johnsen as central striker, but also with Falkenburg, Khayati and Becker as offensive midfielders. Offensive midfielder Ricardo Kishna (2/0) is injured and out, as well as central defender Wilfried Kanon (11/1) and offensive Melvyn Lorenzen (14/1).

Vitesse, on the other side, didn’t have that difficult game last time out in front of own fans against Groningen in a 2:0 victory last Friday night. They have opened the game in the best possible way, taking the lead in sixth minute with a goal from Miazga, doubling up the lead more than deservedly in 32nd minute thanks to Mount.
They were much better in the first halftime, being determined to put the game behind themselves which they managed to do, remaining a bit uninterested into the second halftime which was rather boring but without getting into trouble with the result.
The side now stands at seventh position with four points more than eight and out of play-off zone placed Heerenveen and in case of a victory here, they have a perfect chance to detach themsleves further from that position and surpass fifth placed Feyenoord.
Guests should continue in 4-3-3 formation with Bergen and Linssen on the wings, plus Castaignos most likely as central forward. Striker Tim Matavz (21/9) can’t play here due suspension, while injured and sidelined is central back Arnold Kruiswijk (4/0) and these two should be their only absentees.
Den Haag is not getting victories recently on the field, but are not playing that poor either – their defense remains unstable, but the side generally doesn’t need much goalscoring chances in order to find a net. They will surely appear more attacking here, while Vitesse anyway remains stronger, more quality side individually and also capable of scoring with ease.
