Europe's newest competition enters the knockout rounds with a great looking contest between Rapid Vienna and Vitesse. Both teams will be looking to look to advance through to the final sixteen so we could have two very closely fought contests on our hands here. Both sides enter this contest in miserable form so both teams will be wanting to get their seasons back on track with progression here.
With both of these teams heading into this clash in dismal form it’s hard to have any confidence in either side. Vitesse will be looking to make the most of some fortuitous circumstances with their progression to this stage being boosted by Tottenham’s disqualification. Even so, Vitesse in the group stages produced some good football and were competitive against both Rennes and Spurs. Vitesse have lost their last two away games but they will be looking to get back on track here. Rapid have lost four of their last five at home and welcome a Vitesse side who can play a good brand of attacking football. In a tough match to call, it might pay to play this match super safe and at odds of 8/13 for Vitesse to win or draw we think that could be a good option at an ok price.
Vitesse to score in both halves
Vitesse troubled both Tottenham and Rennes through their attacking brand of play and against a side who have conceded seven goals in their last five home matches, Vitesse will be confident of causing a shaky Rapid defence some problems. Vitesse averaged two goals per game during the group stage and at odds of 16/5 for the Dutch side to score in both halves here, we think that could be a great betting option.
Over 2.5 goals
Both of these teams have struggled at the back in recent games and we think backing the over 2.5 goal market in this match could be a great way to play. Rapid have seen over 2.5 goals in three of their last five matches whilst Vitesse have seen the feat surpassed in their last four. In what could be an open game with plenty of chances it makes sense to side with the over 2.5 goals at 5/6.
