‘Eliminate Vitesse in Cup’

The ten-place difference in the Eredivisie rankings is anything but a guarantee for an easy evening for Ajax in the cup duel against Vitesse. Frank de Boer emphasized as much in the pre-game press conference for the round of sixteen match of the KNVB Cup. “Vitesse is currently playing under its level and is doing badly”, says the coach. The championship is out of their reach. The only prize left for them is the cup. We need to ensure that Vitesse also is eliminated there.”
