FC Emmen vs Fortuna Sittard
Dutch Eredivisie
Date: 11 February 2023, Saturday
Kick-off at 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: De Oude Meerdijk (Emmen).

Emmen and Fortuna Sittard will close an exciting Eredivisie Saturday with a late night clash at De Oude Meerdijk in Matchday No 21.

The game has a huge importance for both outfits, especially the hosts who currently hold the position that leads to the relegation playoffs at the end of the season.

FC Emmen did not shine in the most recent outings, especially the last weekend’s one when they barely avoided a defeat in the home fixture against Vitesse.

Dick Lukkien’s men found the late equalizer in a match in which they managed to register only three shots on target despite conceding two early goals in front of the home fans.

Knowing they had earlier failed to find the back of the net in the road defeat to RKC Waalwijk (2-0), we have to question the team’s attacking capabilities ahead of this tie with Fortuna Sittard.

The visitors will definitely go into the match in higher spirits. They have managed to claim seven out of nine possible points in the previous three league rounds.

The team led by Spanish manager Julio Velasquez moved up to the 11th place in the Eredivisie standings as a consequence and they are now seven points above Emmen in the danger zone.

Emmen vs Fortuna Sittard Head-to-head

  • Emmen lead the overall head to head tie by six wins going into the 41st encounter with Fortuna Sittard.
  • The teams have 6 wins apiece in the last 19 H2H clashes at De Oude Meerdijk.
  • Both outfits were on target in six of the previous eight head to head affairs.

Emmen vs Fortuna Sittard Prediction

FC Emmen lost just one of ten league games on the home patch since the start of the season but we really struggle to see the value in backing their win at the 2.00 odds here.

Fortuna Sittard left a much better impression in the last couple of weeks and we would not be surprised to see their back line doing the job against the out-of-form Emmen offense on Saturday. You can back Fortuna Sittard to win & Under 2.5 goals FT pick at the sky-high 7.00 odds.
