Fortuna Sittard vs Vitesse
Netherlands – Eredivisie
Date: Sunday, 27th January 2019
Kick-off at 11.15 UK/ 12.15 CET
Venue: Fortuna Sittard Stadion (Sittard).
However hard they try, Vitas never seem capable to overthrow the big three from the podium, and this season too the story has not been that different. They have been performing well and recording good results, but every time, the top three seems to do it one notch better.
The seven-point gap which stands between them and direct entry into the Europa League will be definitely the motivating factor for the players along with the chance to dethrone Feyenoord. Expect Leonid Slutsky’s men to show up with intent.
The competition in the back of the table is definitely taking its toll on teams there, and especially Fortunezen. Their overall record is just tattered, though they try to overshadow it with good showings at home. The one thing that will be hanging heavy in their minds will be the 5-1 loss they had to endure against Graafschap, the worst team in the competition.

Fortuna Sittard vs Vitesse Prediction
Vitas will be definitely be drawing strength from the fact that they are unbeaten at this venue against the hosts. They have intense competition behind them for the sole spot that ensures a path to the playoffs of European competition, and a likely chance to get the spot of Feyenoord which will allow them to take part in the Europa League with no further obstacles. The team who has been unbeaten against the group from Sittard for the last 20 years is expected to make it through one more tie without incident.
Also, they have lost in a face-to-face meeting just once.
Rene Eijer’s men who have lost their last three games in a row, and has been winless in the last four, is the definite underdog here. They have scored just two goals in their last four games and failed to score in two of their last three home-ties.
I expect the visitors to take the three points while keeping a clean sheet.
