Fortuna Sittard Prediction

Fortuna Sittard occupy 14th place in the Eredivisie but are just two league places and just one point ahead of their opponents this Friday night with a valuable three points at stake for both teams as they look to stave off relegation down to the Eerste Divisie.

Sittard have had to endure a miserable run of defeats in recent times as the hosts have lost their last four league matches on the trot with defeats to Heracles, Heerenveen, AZ Alkmaar and Ajax, although it needs to be mentioned that three of these four losses were handed out to Fortuna Sittard away from home.

The hosts will no doubt be relieved to be returning to their Fortuna Sittard Stadion for this Friday night’s clash as their home form looks to be their best chance of securing their survival. Sittard have produced mixed results at home recently as they’ve picked up wins against Vitesse and Excelsior but have also lost to AZ and Heerenveen.

Sittard possess an okay looking home record of 5-3-4 23/19 and this includes just two defeats from their last eight matches on home soil which will give the hosts belief that they can get something from this encounter.


Key-Facts – Fortuna Sittard v Emmen

  • Fortuna Sittard have lost just 2 of their last 8 home matches in the Eredivisie
  • Emmen are without a win from their last 4 matches in the Eredivisie
  • Emmen have failed to keep a single clean sheet away from home in the Eredivisie


Emmen Prediction

Emmen sit third from bottom in the Dutch top flight and occupy one of the relegation play-off spots as they prepare for their trip to Fortuna Sittard in this crucial relegation ‘six-pointer’ but they too have gone four matches without a win in the Eredivisie.

Three defeats from these four matches have seen Emmen suffer losses against Excelsior, Vitesse and Feyenoord and they’ve picked up just one point from the last possible 12 on offer thanks to a 1-1 draw with Heracles at their De Oude Meerdijk ground last time out.

The visitors have also lost their last three away matches on the trot amidst an overall away record of 4-2-6 13/31, in what has been a difficult campaign for Emmen in their first season in the Dutch top flight.

In addition, the visitors have failed to keep a single clean sheet on the road this season and have conceded 2 goals or more in 7 of their 12 away matches to date, so the signs aren’t good for the visitors ahead of this important clash.

Betting Tips Verdict

Fortuna Sittard appear to have the edge here but back them with the draw no bet option in this one.
