Matt Miazga has had a sensational campaign with Eredivisie club Vitesse Arnhem but the American and his team face a huge test this weekend.

Vitesse travels to FC Utrecht on Saturday in the second leg of their playoff clash with a place in next season’s Europa League qualifiers at stake. Vitesse held on for a 3-2 first leg win on Tuesday at home, but will need to defend strongly in the return leg this weekend.

Miazga has made 41 appearances for Vitesse in all competitions this season, helping his side earn seven clean sheets.

Elsewhere, Timmy Chandler and Eintracht Frankfurt will face off with Bayern Munich in the German Cup Final. Kyle Scott will hope to have his name chosen in Chelsea’s F.A. Cup Final squad on Saturday, while Jorge Villafana and Santos Laguna face Toluca in the Liga MX final. Tim Weah will hope for playing time in Unai Emery’s final match in charge of Paris Saint-Germain. Kenny Saief and Anderlecht face off with Genk in the Belgian Pro League.

  1. Miazga with a first-half goal for Vitesse. Up 5-2 on aggregate and even on away goals with one half to play.

  2. Amon did not dress today. Not sure if it’s injury, rest with last match of season Monday and they need 1pt to make Europa playoff, or something else.

    • Sorry if Amon’s team wins or draws with Copenhagen Monday they play a one off with the best team for 7th place and below playoff.
