Vitesse face a must-win clash with Mura

Vitesse host Mura at the GelreDom in Armhem on Thursday in their final group match of the Europa Conference League.

Second in Group G with seven points, the Vites are competing with Tottenham Hotspur for a place in the preliminary round.

A win is a must unless Spurs lose to Rennes in the other game, because in that case, a draw would be enough to go through.

However, if both sides win, then the group runner-up will be decided on goal difference.

Meanwhile, Mura are bottom with only three points and already eliminated from the race.

However, the side caused their biggest upset in history with a 2-1 defeat of Antonio Conte's side on the last matchday.
