Vitesse Arnhem v Heerenveen
It has been a very poor start to the season for Vitesse. In a way, you can excuse losing to Feyenoord, but being well-beaten by Excelsior leaves Thomas Letsch’s side two defeats from two and eight goals conceded already. When you re-build a team, you need that time to grow as a group and function for each other; it is like Letsch is having to start from scratch. On a positive note, Million Manhoef could be someone who develops into a key player this season – his dribbles in attacking areas give defences something to think about.
Heerenveen make this an interesting tactical battle because they have secured two clean sheets so far, but they have yet to score in the Eredivisie. Do they go one better this time by keeping it tight and scoring a goal or two?
I think the visitors will grow quicker under Kees van Wonderen; they have had more time together as a squad and they have less issues to fix than their hosts, so I wouldn’t be surprised to see Vitesse have another frustrating afternoon
Fortuna Sittard v Cambuur
Fortuna disappointed in their 3-0 defeat to Twente last weekend. After the game, manager Sjors Ultee said that his side ‘have a long way to go as a team’. This game should feel a little different though after having played Ajax and Twente back-to-back.
Meanwhile, Cambuur boss Henk de Jong has enjoyed sharing the stats of his side’s previous two games in his post-match interviews. Despite seemingly covering for his team after no win so far, he is right that they dominated the loss to Excelsior, and they edged European-chasing Utrecht last weekend in their 0-0 draw.
I think it’s about time Cambuur grabbed a goal; I think Fortuna will be a threat as well following their poor performance last weekend and the strikers they have in their squad. Hopefully Burak Yilmaz will get a start. The home side will use the energy and pressure of the home crowd to lift their performance
