Vitesse take on the visitors Viitorul at the GelreDome in the second leg match of the UEFA Europa League second qualification round. The match will be played in Arnhem on Thursday, August 2nd. The first leg match ended with a 2-2 draw.
Vitesse showed some powerful performances in the end of the last season having a 6 match undefeated streak (5 wins a 1 draw). The team has not been looking that good in the off-season though (1 win, 1 draw, 2 losses). The Vitas started the official part of the season in Romania last week where they were losing with a 0-2 score in the course of that match but then scored 2 goals and made that match a draw. That fixture was a debut game for the new head coach of the team Leonid Slutsky. Vitesse have had 11 home matches in 2018, won 7 of them, drew 2 and lost 2. They have been undefeated in front of their crowd for 4 straight matches with an overall 17-3 goal difference.

Viitorul placed 4th in the Romanian Liga I last season. The team has had 7 friendly matches this summer, won 5 of them and lost 2. It`s worth noting that the Hagi`s Kids have had 5 official matches in the new season also (2 in Liga I and 3 in the Europa League). In the first qualification round Viitorul beat Racing from Luxembourg (2-0, 0-0). In the first leg match against Vitesse the Romanians were winning with a 2-0 score but lost that handicap in the end. Viitorul have had 9 away matches this year, won 5 of them, drew 2 and lost 2.
Last week the Dutch side showed their strength of will and the desire to win. They should show even better performance in front of their home crowd so they are likely to win.
Prediction for the match: Vitesse to win with -1.0 handicap.
