PEC Zwolle vs Fortuna Sittard Prediction
PEC Zwolle were handed their fourth defeat in five games, in their last clash on the road, after Twente did just enough to post a 2-1 scorecard. The hosts have now garnered no more than three points from their last seven games.
However, to their defense, four of those seven matchups were on the road. While two of the three defeats that were at home were against Ajax and PSV. Both of whom were the top two sides in the cluster, last time around.
On the other hand, Fortuna Sittard managed to recover from the 6-0 drubbing at the hands of Utrecht by edging it past Den Haag with a narrow 1-0 scorecard at home. With three wins in their past five matchups, the visitors are currently sitting fourteenth on the ladder, sporting a slender two-point cushion over the hosts.
Be that as it may, the guests have been branded as the second-worst away side in the cluster with zero wins from their outings so far. To pile on even more misery, Fortuna Sittard have been at the losing end in each of their previous six visits to this venue in a running.
Furthermore, PEC Zwolle have looked a lot sharper on home soil. And have salvaged a point at the least in half of their last six games here too. Given the favorable h2h history and the visiting contingent’s dismal form on the road, PEC Zwolle are the favorites to climb up the ladder this weekend.
Additionally, irrespective of the result, Zwolle have been consistently getting their names on the scoresheet in five of their previous six games here. The hosts have also been securing the bragging rights by a two-goal margin or more in all of their past five head to head clashes at MAC³PARK Stadion.
Hence, count on PEC Zwolle to win and to win big at that as well this Saturday.
