ADO Den Haag vs Fortuna Sittard
2018-19 Dutch Eredivisie
Date: Friday, 24 August 2018
Kick-off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Cars Jeans Stadion (Den Haag).
ADO Den Haag will be hoping to get their first point of the season when they host Fortuna Sittard at home of Friday night. They have lost the two opening games of the season which is quite a poor start for them.
Den Haag lost 2-1 at home to Emmen in the first game of the season and were also beaten 4-2 away from home last week against Heracles.
Den Haag are in the 16 position in the table, which is one of the relegation playoff spot. However, it’s still too early to tag them as struggling but they need to win this game to avoid the effects of a poor start this season.
Meanwhile, Fortuna haven’t started in a superb way but they are better than their hosts. They managed a 1-1 draw in the opening fixture against Excelsior in the opening game but couldn’t resist PSV at home last week.
Fortuna lost 2-1 to PSV after they failed to hold on till the 90th minute. They went behind before halftime, but bounced but with an equalizer in the 61st minute. However, a 90th minute goal by D Rio broke the hearts of Fortuna fans and players as the game ended 2-1 in favour of PSV.
Fortuna Sittard were the second best team in that game with 39% overall formation. However, they managed 6 shots on target which is good against PSV’s 8. They will be hoping to get their first win of the season this weekend but that’s if they can put up a good performance just like they did last week.
