De Graafschap vs Fortuna Sittard
Netherlands – Eredivisie
Date: Sunday, 20th January 2019
Kick-off at 13.30 UK/ 14.30 CET
Venue: De Vijverberg (Doetinchem).
The Super Farmers, in defiance of their peculiar name, have been anything but superb this season. They appear as though they have already given up on their future and is ready to take the trip to Eerste Divisie. They have scored the least number of goals in the whole league, and have conceded the second-most. The team has let in more than 2.5 goals per match as an average.
Rene Eijer’s men would really love to do something about their poor record on the road. The team has been riding on their home-form since the beginning of the season. In this tie, they have got an opportunity to make up for their unsatisfactory road trips.
I would advise the loyal fans of the hosts to find strength somewhere else, as for sure, you are not going to get it from your team.

De Graafschap vs Fortuna Sittard Prediction
The team from the city of Sittard is the huge favorite for this tie. They are going against easily the weakest side of the entire league, and one who has already virtually given up on their ambitions for the season.
The team is currently on an eight-match winless run in official matches and has registered just three wins in their last 24 attempts, stretching back to July of 2018. At home, they are winless in their last four games, and in 11 of their last 14. They have conceded a mammoth 19 goals in their last six home-ties.
Fortunezen, who are gunning for a Europa League spot, will at no cost waste this opening and will wreak havoc on the Superboeren. Expect Rene Eijer’s men to win as well as score in, both the halves.
