Since notching his first professional club goal against Heerenveen on 14 March, Bertrand Traore appears to have gotten the hang of this whole scoring goals thing.
The eighteen-year-old Burkinabe has now scored in each of his last three matches, and the goal he scored today was, by far, the most spectacular of the three.
Christian Atsu also scored, and continues his excellent play since moving to the wing. Patrick van Aanholt also played the full ninety, but Lucas Piazon remained on the bench.
In true Vitesse fashion, the match was extremely entertaining on the offensive end and extremely frustrating on the defensive end. They ended up losing the match 4-3 as a result of the defensive lapses that we have come to expect from the club. Having only picked up two points in the last three matches, Vitesse has their work cut out for them this summer, as it will begin its long march towards qualifying for the Europa League group stages likely very early on in the qualifying rounds.
That said, if Chelsea allows Vitesse to retain Traore, Atsu, and Piazon next season (nowhere close to a sure thing, by the way) and Vitesse can pick up a few defensive-minded players, the Arnhem club should be a force to be reckoned with next season.
