Vitesse, the home side, has struggled to make an impact in the league this season and currently finds itself languishing in the relegation zone as the second half of the campaign unfolds.
Despite a goalless draw against Utrecht in their recent Eredivisie outing, they managed to secure a narrow 1-0 victory over Amsterdamsche in the last 16 of the KNVB Beker on Thursday.
Occupying the 17th spot in the league table with 12 points from 17 matches, Vitesse is just one point above the bottom-placed Volendam and is eager to increase that margin in the upcoming clash.
On the other hand, Feyenoord has displayed a commendable performance this season and is eyeing consecutive UEFA Champions League appearances.
The team encountered a setback in their last game, drawing 2-2 against the in-form NEC Nijmegen, where they squandered a two-goal lead.
Currently positioned second in the Eredivisie standings with 39 points from their previous matches, Feyenoord aims to add to their point tally in this fixture.
