Fortuna Sittard vs De Graafschap
Date: Sunday, 21 October 2018
Kick-Off at 15:45 UK / 16:45 CET
Venue: Fortuna Sittard Stadion (Sittard).
Fortuna Sittard and De Graafschap will drop the curtain on the 9th round of Eredivisie with their low-profile clash on Sunday afternoon at Fortuna Sittard Stadion. These two sides joined the Dutch top flight together this season and they’ll no doubts be struggling to keep the elite class status for longer than a year this term.
Neither of two rivals will come into this in high spirits, but we can say the visitors are clearly the outfit in a tougher situation at the moment. They suffered a real disaster conceding as many as five goals on the home patch last weekend even though they played none of league heavyweights. The team led by Henk de Jong has huge problems with defensive line which allowed as many as seven goals in last two away matches in all competitions (including the KNVB Beker clash with the lower-division VVSB).

Fortuna Sittard vs De Graafschap: Prediction
Much like their counterparts, Fortuna were super easy to break down so far in the season. They even boast league’s weakest defensive record with 18 goals allowed in 8 matches. They come into this off the back of a 3-3 draw to fellow strugglers Emmen. We’d not be surprised to see a similar scenario when they take on Superboeren in the last game of the Matchday on Sunday.
The BTTS is thus our top betting recommendation at the odds of 1.57. You can obviously also back the Over 2.5 goals FT bet at the odds of 1.60. As for the outcome, we’d go for the draw at 3.75.
