Highly-rated Ghanaian starlets Christian Atsu and Shadrach Eghan will slug it out in the Dutch Eredivisie’s top-liner on Saturday evening. 

Black Stars winger Atsu is one of the influential players for Vitesse Arnhem who travel to the De Grolsch Veste in Enschede to hunt for their first victory in five games.

Eghan, 19, has scored five times already in 20 games  and provided as many as six assists for his team-mates so far in the season.

Though Eghan is not a sure starter in Michel Jansen’s side, the Akosombo-born is well-known for his impressive and eye-catching footwork is likely to come off the bench in the second half.

Atsu, who joined Vitesse on a season long-loan from English giants Chelsea has 15 games under his belt with two goals to accompany.

Since the resumption of the league after the break, Twente have discovered their form and gone to second spot while Atsu’s Vitesse who used to lead the section are down to fourth place.
