Vitesse coach Thomas Letsch speaks of a "particularly great challenge" to play against Anderlecht in the play-offs of the Conference League.

Nevertheless, the German sees opportunities in the double encounter.

"Anderlecht have a good team that combines individual qualities with good cooperation," Letsch said at the preview press conference about the Belgian opponent.

"They are especially good in possession, which is no surprise with a coach who has played for years at Manchester City," he referred to 35-year-old Vincent Kompany.

"In any case, playing football against this club is a very big challenge for us."

Despite the praise for Anderlecht, Letsch is convinced that Vitesse can win.

"We've seen a lot of videos and know what to do," said the trainer, who has recovered Riechedly Bazoer and Oussama Tannane.

"I don't think the difference will be that big in the end. That's why I'm hopeful that we will be the better in two games. We really want to see a bit more of Europe this season."

Anderlecht-Vitesse starts on Thursday at 8 p.m. in Brussels.

The return is a week later in the GelreDome.

The winner of the diptych qualifies for the main tournament of the Conference League.
