Willem II vs Vitesse Prediction
Neither of the two have been in the best of form in recent weeks, although Vitesse will fancy their chances of getting maximum points against the basement boys.
The hosts have been out of sorts this season and are currently on an eight-game winless streak in the league. We are backing that run to continue with another defeat.
