In the last friendly ahead of the start of the 2017-2018 season, Sparta will take on Vitesse Arnhem. The match will be played on July 20 at the GENERALI Arena.

The kick-off time has not been set yet. Ticketing info will be released before the match.

Vitesse has been one of the top sides in Dutch top division, placing fifth in the Eredivisie last season – eleven points behind Utrecht, two points ahead of AZ.

Vitesse look forward to playing in the Europa League group stage next season, as they won the Dutch cup, beating AZ in the finals, thanks to two strikes by Ricky van Wolfswinkel.

Van Wolfswinkel is Vitesse’s top striker, who was in the race for the Eredivisie’s top striker last season. With 20 strikes he ended up second, one goal behind Feyenoord’s Jorgensen. There are many interesting names in Vitesse’s squad – among others, Kevin Leerdam, who faced Sparta in Europa League play-off with Feyenoord, or Costa’s teammate from team Zimbabwe, Marvelous Nakamba.

Sparta faced Vitesse for the last time two years ago in Austria. After strikes by Dauda and Krejčí, the match ended with a one-goal draw.
