FC Emmen vs Fortuna Sittard Prediction
Dick Lukkien’s men failed to extend their unbeaten streak to three matches after Heracles slotted two unanswered goals past them to secure all three points. The hosts are yet to find a consistent winning groove and are currently dwelling in the bottom half of the ladder with just two wins from eleven games.
Be that as it may, the home team can go easy on themselves this weekend as they will be squaring up against a side that has been faring even worse. Fortuna Sittard are just one spot away from hitting rock bottom on the table and have garnered no more than six points so far in their campaign.
The visitors picked what was only their first win of the season in their most recent matchup at home against Feyenoord, that too by a convincing 4-2 scorecard. However, the away side will be without home advantage in this one, which is certainly a reason to incite worry.
Fortuna have been at the losing end in three of their previous four outings and have lost by a two-goal margin or more in each of those defeats. The away side have not registered a win in any of their previous two visits to this venue here either.
With an away record this poor, Fortuna Sittard are in no shape to pull off an upset in this one. Furthermore, there has been no shortage of goals in their previous head to head clashes here. Four out of their last five meetings here have witnessed over 2.5 goals on the final scoreboards.
Considering that the hosts have been consistent in scoring no less than three goals in each of their last two home games, count on nothing short of a high scoring clash to unfold this weekend.
