Since Ajax II won the league by one point, Fortuna were automatically promoted into the elite class without featuring the play-offs. The Sittard side will travel to Rotterdam to take on Excelsior in the inaugural match in the elite class.

It will be a serious test for the visitors as Kralingers have been enjoying a stellar form during the pre-season.

The hosts bagged an impressive seven-goal tally in last two wins over the likes of NAC Breda and AZ and they will no doubt have a nice opportunity to bring such form into the official season as they are to play the league newcomers here.

Excelsior were the dominant force in the history of head to head games against Fortuna Sittard.

Kralingers won 8, drew 4 and lost only 2 of 14 meetings with Fortunezen.

Excelsior have a brutal record in H2H games on the home patch where they won 6 and drew 1 of 7 ties against Fortuna Sittard.

Excelsior vs Fortuna Sittard: Prediction

Fortuna were far less impressive in their friendlies. They lost two and drew one of last thee netting just once in the process. The opposition included the likes of Antalyaspor, Goztepe and Bayer Leverkusen.

Based on everything written above, we can hardly see the visitors getting the result at Van Donge & De Roo Stadion.

Every single parameter speaks in Excelsior’s favour and we have to notice a strong value in backing the home win at the odds of 2.10 here.

The hosts are also worth backing to net two or more goals at 1.83 given they been thriving in the final third in most recent friendlies.

Excelsior won 6 and drew 1 of 7 head to head games against Fortuna with an impressive goal-difference 17-3 along the way.

They did not concede a single goal in last three home ties against the Sittard side, meaning you can also try with the hosts to keep a clean sheet pick at 3.40.
