Fortuna Sittard vs FC Emmen Prediction

Sittard lost on the road the last match-day against Heracles, and the scoreline was 2-0. The loss once again pointed finger to the struggles of the team in away games, and underlined the need to perform well in home fixtures.

Meanwhile, Emmen won at home 2-0 against Twente. While the win was a much-needed one, it could not be termed as a victory of great value. First of all, the team had home advantage, and they had taken on a newly-promoted squad. Especially with the terrible run they have been having on the road, the three points cannot be celebrated.

To make it precise, Emmen have not recorded a single win on the road in all competitions this season. They had begun their campaign with a seven-game losing run on the road, and in fact, disregarding two draws, they have lost every one of their matches away from home in 2019-20.

Moreover, they have conceded twice or more as well in all but two of their road fixtures this season, while failing to score in four of their last six such games. On the other hand, Sittard had won eight of their last ten appearances at home, and had scored twice or more in three of the last five games here.

Furthermore, disregarding their loss against Vitesse, Fortuna have not lost at home since September, and against a struggling Emmen side, who have been a total failure on the road, the hosts are considered favorites. Likely, back Fortuna Sittard to post the 3 points this Saturday.
