As for Groningen, the team had showed a very good game in the first Europa League playoffs match because the team managed to beat Vitesse. However, if you compare the teams’ level of the game, the current opponent of Groningen plays better. The return game will be very difficult. It is worth noting: if Groningen defends quite reliably at home, then it acts terribly away. For comparison, this team did not concede in 6 out of 10 last home games. But in 5 of the last 7 away games, Groningen allowed at least 2 goals.
Of course, the men of Leonid Slutsky will have an advantage in the upcoming match. Vitesse plays confidently in the attacking third and scores a lot of goals. As for Groningen, this team plays much worse away than at home. Certainly, Vitesse will have problems, but it will manage to overcome Groningen in the home arena.
Prediction for the match: Vitesse to win
