Emmen vs Fortuna Sittard
Date: Sunday, 7th October 2018
Kick-off at 11:15 UK/ 12:15 CET
Venue: De Oude Meerdijk (Emmen).
Emmen and Fortuna Sittard will both be hoping to avoid slipping into the relegation zone as they clash on Sunday afternoon. The two sides were unable to win their games last week but this week has a lot in store for the two sides.
Emmen travelled to Heracles last weekend and couldn’t come home with any point as they lost 2-1. Heracles took the lead very early in the game as they scored in the 6th and 7th minutes via Kuwas and Peterson respectively.
The game was fair and equal judging by the statistics available to us but tge scoring wasn’t equal. Emmen had 54% of overall possession and had 8 shots on target from 16 against Heracles 6 from 14. That defeat was their 4th of the season and they hope to avoid another this weekend.
Fortuna Sittard had a very tough fixture last weekend as they lost 2-0 at home against Ajax. That was their 3rd defeat in the Eredivisie this season and they have also drawn 3 times having won only 1 game. They will be hoping to get their second win of the season but that’s a tough task ahead of them.

We can’t separate these two teams as they seem to be evenly matched. The game could end in draw but we are concerned on the goal market. The two sides have conceded a lot, they have conceded an average of 2.14 goals per game, so we expect to see goals in this game.
