Fortuna Sittard vs RKC Waalwijk: Prediction
Fortuna traveled to Eindhoven looking to feast on a PSV’s rotten form, but they were no match for the much improved side and ended up maybe even saving van Bommel’s job following 0-5 defeat.
Sitting at 14th, Fortunezen can still get involved in relegation fight. With a WDL record of 4-3-9 (20:40 GD), they’re only two points away from danger zone.
Sjors Ultee’s men are downright impressive at the moment in front of their own crowd. Fortuna is undefeated five games in a row, winning four. Add to that two draws and from eight home games they’ve collected 14 points with a GD of 15:10.
RKC went into the Sunday game v Heerenveen on the back of a confidence boosting victory at Utrecht weekend-before-last. Sadly, their uprising was short -lived, as they once again fell to late defeat.
That was RKC’s 12th defeat of the season and with only eight points from two wins and two draws, with downright miserable GD of 17:40, they seem doomed to go back to Eerste Divisie just one season after their return to top flight.
Grim’s men got four points from eight away games, which doesn’t make them the worst but they aren’t far off. Ten goals scored are alright but 24 conceded are just grim.
Dianessy and young Fernandes are still out of commission for Fortuna while Grim’s squad will be at full strength.
Draw No Bet on Fortuna might be one sensible choice. Their recent home form is encouraging enough for me to try this. Make this their fifth home win in a row. I like the odds on Under 3.75 goals. Only once in last eight confrontations they’ve went over it.
