Fortuna Sittard vs Excelsior Predictions & Match Preview

Fortuna Sittard vs Excelsior
Netherlands – Eredivisie
Date: Sunday, 10th February 2019
Kick-off at 11.15 UK/ 12.15 CET
Venue: Fortuna SittardStadion (Sittard).

Red-Blacks are going through a purple patch at this moment, as they won last 2 matches on the trot. AdriePoldervaart has been trying his best to revive their season. But the away form has been their problem all year, as they recorded only one win in the last 8 matches.

Excelsior has been one of the weakest defensive units in this league, as they conceded 49 goals this season. But in the last two matches, they only allowed a single goal.

The home team’s current form is so worrying for the supporters and the management. Rene Eijer tries to give chances for the younger player and want to build a team for the future.

But relegation battle is not over yet, as they sit only 2 places above the exit spots. The attacking players have shown fighting spirit in some of the matches, as they scored 1.6 goals per match.

Fortuna Sittard vs Excelsior Prediction

The two teams have so much to gain from this match, as both of them are still battling to avoid relegation. So this match will be more physical and aggressive in nature, as cards may be flying around. If both teams play cautiously and take a point each, it will be a good result for both of them.

The situation is kind of do-or-die for both these teams, as the error in judgment inside boxes will result in penalties. As the game progress, both teams will lose their cool and it may result in goals. So I am expecting a score line with one goal each.
