Fortuna Sittard vs Sparta Rotterdam
Netherlands – Eredivisie
Date: Saturday, 28 September 2019
Kick-off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Fortuna Sittard Stadion (Sittard).
Fortuna Sittard have got off to a dismal start in the Eredivisie and are currently plying their trade in the bottom half of the ladder. The home team made the trip to Ajax earlier this week on the back of a six-game winless run and were one of the only two teams left in the ladder without a taste of success by the end of Gameweek six.
Sparta Rotterdam have been faring a lot better in comparison and have been at the losing end just twice so far. The squad were handed a whopping 5-1 defeat in their last trip on the road, following which they thrashed Waaljwik at home with four unanswered goals to their name.
Although the visitors have not been at their best in their outings, Sparta Rotterdam will surely be fancying all three points in this one as the hosts are struggling to get back on their feet.

Fortuna Sittard vs Sparta Rotterdam Prediction
The hosts have let down their home fans in each of their games here so far. Their last two matchups in a running have seen them admit defeat, that too by a narrow one-goal margin, while their only other clash ended in a 2-2 draw.
Additionally, Fortuna Sittard have not secured the bragging rights in their last four meetings with this foe here and have just three wins to their name from their previous ten as well.
Considering that the away side have also stumbled just once in their past four outings in the league, the three points are more than likely to swing in favor of Sparta Rotterdam at the end of the ninety minutes.
Furthermore, irrespective of the result, Sittard have found the back of the net in each of their last three home games and added five to their tally from those clashes. Taking into account that the visitors have not kept a clean sheet in any of their respective outings either, count on both teams to get their names on the scoresheet in this one.
