Vitesse-Feyenoord · a few seconds ago

20 'Feyenoord can hardly adjust against the eager Vitesse in the first twenty minutes of this top match.

The Arnhemmers dominate in-house and immediately chat on top of it when they lose the ball.

You normally expect such a fight from Feyenoord, but the team from Rotterdam, partly due to the long injuries, is not in a position to grab Vitesse by the throat.

These are fascinating fights between Riechedly Bazoer and Nicolai Jørgensen.

For now, Bazoer, who has been turned from midfielder to central defender by Vitesse coach Thomas Letsch, is in charge of the Danish striker of Feyenoord, who has been struggling with his form for a long time.

11 'Vitesse becomes dangerous again via Loïs Openda, who with his speed is a plague for the unwieldy Feyenoord defense.

The attacker puts the ball in front of Eli Dasa, but a Feyenoord player crawls just in front of the defender who has come up and shoots the ball over the back line.

That could just have been the 1-0.

10 'Outrage at Feyenoord, when Nicolai Jørgensen is wrongly flagged for offside.

The linesman has not seen that not Bryan Linssen, but the slipped Danilho Doekhi, plays the ball into the feet of the Dane.

Here Feyenoord is deprived of a great opportunity.

Vitesse-Feyenoord · a few seconds ago

The protagonists of the opening phase of the top match between Vitesse and Feyenoord captured in one image.

Eric Botteghin tried in vain to stop Loïs Openda, but the effort of the Vitesse attacker found no goal after 37 seconds of play.

Botteghin's header a few minutes later was a lot more dangerous, but there has not yet been scored in Arnhem.

4 'On the other hand, it is almost hit for Feyenoord.

Eric Botteghin puts his head like a wrecking ball against an indirect free kick from Mark Diemers and Vitesse goalkeeper Remko Pasveer has quite a bit of trouble with the Brazilian defender's deployment.

The routine drops the ball on the grass once, but manages to keep his goal clean.

1 'After 37 seconds, Vitesse already fires on Nick Marsman's goal.

The water-fast Loïs Openda sprints past Eric Botteghin after a quickly taken free kick, but from a difficult angle he does not get further than a powerless roll with his left.

The ball rolls in the GelreDome Stadium and so Vitesse-Feyenoord is on its way.

Who stays in the trail of leader Ajax?

Vitesse-Feyenoord · a few seconds ago

The players of Vitesse and Feyenoord enter the field one by one in the GelreDome, where the roof is strikingly closed.

In a few moments, the top match of this Eredivisie Sunday will start.

Vitesse-Feyenoord · a few seconds ago

Vitesse had an excellent start to the season, but the team of trainer Thomas Letsch has not been in excellent shape in recent weeks.

Last week the Arnhemmers played a draw against sc Heerenveen, while the week before PEC Zwolle was 2-1 too strong.

That is in stark contrast to, for example, the handsome 2-1 victory over PSV.

    Lawyer does not want to dwell on long injury list

    Dick Advocaat does not want to dwell too long on the long injury list for the top match against Vitesse.

    "You shouldn't pay too much attention to that. The other players just have to do it", he says into the

    FOX Sports



    Nevertheless, the resident of The Hague changes his system and opts for five defenders.

    "Vitesse is a very mobile team. Now everyone is facing each other, then it is a bit easier. It's Jantje against Pietje. Then let's see who is the strongest."

    Letsch: 'Two teams of the same level'

    Vitesse coach Thomas Letsch does not want to say that this is the best time to hit the battered Feyenoord.

    "They are two teams of the same level", Letsch said before the match in Arnhem at

    FOX Sports


    "Today is the best chance to show it. It's a tough job, because they have not lost in the Eredivisie this year. And the starting eleven is still very strong."

    Vitesse-Feyenoord · a few seconds ago

    Leroy Fer inspects, from behind a face mask, the field in Arnhem for the top match against Vitesse.

    The midfielder, who returns to base after a hamstring injury, takes a good look at where he can do the necessary demolition and pounding work.

    Bryan Linssen raises his thumb to the photographer at the GelreDome.

    That will probably be a known of the thirty-year-old striker, because he played at Vitesse from 2017 until last summer.

    In Arnhem, he grew into a goalkeeper with 43 league hits in three seasons.

    At Feyenoord things are not really going smoothly for Linssen.

    He only scored once.

    Berghuis is missing, Feyenoord in 5-3-2

    Steven Berghuis is missing at Feyenoord with a groin injury.

    The absence of the captain is yet another setback for trainer Dick Advocaat, who also does not have access to Justin Bijlow, João Teixeira, Robert Bózenik and Orkun Kökçü.

    Partly for this reason, Advocaat opts for a formation with five defenders, in which there is room for Eric Botteghin.

    Leroy Fer returns to base after a hamstring injury.

    Line-up Feyenoord:


    Nieuwkoop, Spajic, Botteghin, Senesi, Malacia;

    Toornstra, Fer, Diemers;

    Jørgensen, Linssen.

    Vitesse-Feyenoord · a few seconds ago

    Vitesse and Feyenoord kick off the Eredivisie Sunday in a real mutual top match.

    The duel in Arnhem is the meeting between the numbers four and three of the rankings.

    Both clubs have 26 points and are only 4 points behind leader Ajax.

    Who stays in the wake of the Amsterdammers?
