Heerenveen vs Fortuna Sittard
Dutch Eredivisie
Date: Sunday, 10 January 2021
Kick-Off at 13.30 UK
Venue: Abe Lenstra Stadion.

Heerenveen’s fans are surely hoping that 2021 is going to be much better than the last year. Their squad had awful results in December, being on a winless streak which lasts for seven games now. Can that change on Sunday afternoon at Abe Lenstra against Fortuna Sittard?

Opponents are sitting in 13th position with 13 points, so the opportunity to end the bad run is perfect. Plus, there was a 20-day break so hopefully Heerenveen used that time to improve. Bookies labelled The Super Frisians as favorites for this clash, offering 1.66 odds on home victory. That doesn’t come as a surprise after taking a look at Fortuna’s stats on the road.

Heerenveen vs Fortuna Sittard Head-to-head

  • Seven out of the last eight head to head meetings between these two opponents have always ended with a lot of action and goals, BTTS or Over 2.5 FT.
  • They already met once this season, back in September in Sittard. Heerenveen claimed an easy 3-1 win thanks to two goals scored by Joey Veerman.
  • There were 36 goals scored in nine h2h’s at this stadium, which averages exactly 4.00 per duel.

Heerenveen vs Fortuna Sittard Prediction

Heerenveen hosted Fortuna Sittard nine times and never lost one single match, while winning six. Considering the quality, we were very surprised to see them perform so badly in December. The last time this squad achieved victory was on 1st November on the road against Sparta Rotterdam. Head manager Johnny Jansen can’t be satisfied with performances of his back line which conceded 21 goals so far.

Veerman has been consistent when it comes to scoring though, bagging nine goals. Fortuna Sittard have even worse stats in defense, allowing 32 goals to opponents in 14 games. We believe their streak is about to end on Sunday. Besides home win, we also feel comfortable backing Over 3.5 goals bet.

  • Heerenveen to win @ 1.66
