Fortuna Sittard vs Feyenoord
Date: Wednesday, 15 May 2019
Kick-Off 18:30 UK / 19:30 CET
Venue: Fortuna Sittard Stadion (Sittard).
Local crowd in Sittard will have the chance to enjoy a pleasant evening on Wednesday when Fortuna will celebrate the survival in the elite class of Dutch football after joining it from second division before this season. Head coach Rene Eijer managed to fulfil team’s ambitions as Fortunezen sit four pints clear off the red zone coming into the last round fixture against heavyweights Feyenoord.
The hosts could be looking ahead of a winnable contest here in spite of the fact they lost two on the bounce in Eredivisie. Feyenoord showed one of the weakest displays of the entire season at the weekend when they fell 0-2 at home to ADO Den Haag. Given De club aan de Maas have nowhere to go in terms of the final standings ahead of this tie, we don’t see why Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s men would produce their best showing here.
Fortuna Sittard vs Feyenoord: Head-to-head
The head to head record completely favours Feyenoord who were the dominant force historically.
The visitors lead the tie by eight wins coming into 18th H2H clash with Fortuna.
De club aan de Maas won seven of eight away fixtures against Fortuna Sittard.
However, we have to say that Fortunezen stunned Feyenoord when teams locked horns in this term of Eredivisie (0-2 away at De Kuip in mid-December last year).
Fortuna Sittard vs Feyenoord: Prediction
Feyenoord were on a thread of five successive wins before the aforementioned home loss to ADO Den Haag at the weekend. They, however, struggled badly for consistency on travels throughout the entire season. The team led by van Bronckhorst have a poor away record of 5 wins, 5 draws and 6 losses in 16 league games.
Fortuna, on the other side, lost only one of seven home matches in Eredivisie this year (a 2-4 defeat to Heerenveen back in February). They conceded only three goals in last four home outings. Given Feyenoord failed to find the back of the net in Sunday’s loss to ADO Den Haag, we are tempted to go with the visitors to score fewer than three goals at 1.72 odds.
