PSV Eindhoven vs Fortuna Sittard Prediction & Match Preview

PSV Eindhoven vs Fortuna Sittard
Dutch Eredivisie
Date: Sunday, 4 October 2020
Kick-Off at 15.45 UK
Venue: Philips Stadion, Eindhoven.

After a successful trip to Norway where they secured Europa League group stages against Rosenborg, PSV Eindhoven are returning to domestic obligations. They will close the fourth round on Sunday afternoon at home venue against Fortuna Sittard.

Anything but a convincing victory for PSV would be a surprise, considering visitors are one of the weakest teams in Eredivisie. The current 1.17 odds on home win are showing how big favourite PSV are.

Underestimating the opponent would be a mistake though, like they did last week on the road against Heracles and lost two points.

PSV Eindhoven vs Fortuna Sittard Sittard Prediction

One of the best players in history of Israel, Eran Zahavi finally got a chance in the starting roster against Rosenborg and scored his first goal.

Diversity and plenty of options could be crucial for manager Roger Schmidt if he wants his team to perform well both in Eredivisie and Europa League. So far PSV have collected seven out of possible nine points, beating Groningen (3-1) and Emmen (2-1), while last week’s visit to Heracles ended without a winner 1-1.

They traditionally don’t struggle at all when it comes to encounters against Fortuna Sittard. We are expecting commanding performance from the hosts and comfortable win.

Visitors are 15th on the table with only one point. It was won in a heroic way against AZ Alkmaar though. That duel was played last Sunday and it ended without a winner 3-3 FT. Equalizer for Fortuna was scored by Fleming in the 96th minute. They have been consistent when it comes to scoring in the last two weeks.
