Heerenveen vs Fortuna Sittard Prediction
The rival teams have a pretty good history in between them. Most of their matches in Eredivisie has seen the game rising to over four goals on average. Heerenveen scored only five goals from their four matches and the guest scored three goals out of three games in this season.
Sittard has only won twice from the last ten games. Moreover, Heerenveen has won the recent three encounters against Sittard. The Sittard squad has not celebrated a win at Heerenveen’s home ground in twenty years.
So we can expect the teams to find the nets but it will be lesser than their usual finds form the previous games. There will only be under 3.5 goals in the game from the game. We can also expect Heerenveen to bounce back into the league with a win in the upcoming match.
