Feyenoord vs Fortuna Sittard
Netherlands – KNVB Cup
Date: Wednesday, 23rd January 2019
Kick-off at 19.45 UK/ 20.45 CET
Venue: De Kuip (Rotterdam).
Fortunezen will have a hill to climb when they line up against the powerhouses of Dutch Football, Feyenoord. Already their league campaign has a potential for disaster as the bottom half of the table is just a crazy mix of teams hungry to devour each other.
Just seven points separate the last ten positions in league standings, and all it would take for any of these teams to experience doom is just a bad patch of two or three weeks.
On the other hand, the promise of a place in the Europa League, if they manage to win the competition, is a tempting offer as such.
The Club of the People will definitely be buoyed by the home advantage going in their favor, and anything short of a semifinal appearance in the competition will be deemed their season as a failure, considering the other two teams of ‘The Big Three’, Ajax and PSV have posted an almost insurmountable lead at the top.

Feyenoord vs Fortuna Sittard Prediction
The Stadium Club has been such a beast at home in the whole of 2018. In their last 21 home-ties, the Pride of the South has been unbeaten in 19 of them and had a mammoth 18 wins. The team also scored 43 goals in their last 17 games at home. Since the league title is out of hands for any other team than PSV and Ajax, the Club on the Meuse will be targeting to lift the KNVB Cup.
Rene Eijer’s men have conceded in seven of their last eight away ties, and 13 of their last 15. Also, the team let 12 goals past their defense in their last five trips. Against a determined team like that of the Club of the People, they are expected to concede a lot and lose both the halves.
Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s men will get into work early and not leave things to chance. Expect at least two goals in the first half itself.
