ADO Den Haag vs Fortuna Sittard
Netherlands – Eredivisie
Date: Friday, 13 March 2020
Kick-off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Cars Jeans Stadion (Den Haag).
Both teams are placed in the relegation zone. However, the Storks are in much deeper waters, and as such they will need to vastly improve their performances in these remaining eight match-days. This desperation could be smartly utilized by the Fortunezen this Friday for a win, who need a surplus of just one point to get out of the zone.

ADO Den Haag vs Fortuna Sittard Prediction
The Storks lost 4-0 on the road the last match-day, against Alkmaar. It was their seventh unbeaten game in a row, and was a clear indicator of their current form. In the meantime, Ultee’s men secured a 1-1 draw at home against fellow relegation-battler Zwolle, the prior game week.
Despite avoiding a loss, the fact that they had conceded the equalizer in the 90th minute, that too via a penalty, was a hard pill to digest. For sure the Fortunezen will be determined to make amends for that miss this time around.
They do have the confidence of taking on the Storks, who are one of the worst teams in the competition, while Zwolle are pitted against in-form Heracles, who are pursuing a European spot. As such, a win this Friday will most probably place Ultee’s men above the relegation zone, and this fact will be a great motivator for the team.
Moreover, they had also won the reverse fixture, and have not conceded a single goal from the Storks in the past three meetings. Keep note that the Fortunezen had also recorded a 4-0 combined scoreline from the last two h2h meetings.
Furthermore, the Storks have to make a surplus of 8 points from the remaining 8 games to avoid getting the boot, while they themselves have secured a total of 19 points so far.
Finally, since October their sole victory had come against the dead-last placed Waalwijk and taking all these observations into account, it’s evident that the guests Fortuna Sittard are the favorites for this weekend.
