They got advanced into the Round of 8 of KNVB Beker after thrashing Heracles by 4-0 in the draw of 16. Last week, they were involved in a Club friendly against Gent which ended in 1-0 in favor of AZ.

On the other side, Sittard resides at the 17th position on the table with only 13 points. Of the 18 matches played, they won only thrice while drawing on 4 and losing on 11 other occasions. Their total goals to conceding ratio is the worst in the league which stands at 19:46.

Fortunas got vanquished in the previous league fixture against Ajax by 0-5 while they drew a Club friendly held last week against 2. Bundesliga’s Schalke by 1-1. Their dreams of KNVB Beker has also got shattered after giving up to the table leaders PSV in the Round of 16.

We expect the same to happen on Sunday as the previous h2hs since the hosts are poor at home and lost the past 3 home fixtures. With the last 10 h2hs unbeaten, AZ are the clear favorites to win over the relegation fighting hosts.
