Fortuna Sittard vs AZ Alkmaar
Netherlands – Eredivisie
Date: Saturday, 26 September 2020
Kick-off at 17:45 UK/ 18:45 CET
Venue: Fortuna Sittard Stadion (Sittard).
Having lost both types of opening fixtures this season in Eredivisie, Fortuna Sittard will be at crossroads with their form in the campaign. The host could use their home ground advantage but will play on the back of a 1-3 loss at home against Heerenveen in the last league clash.
However, it will still be a hard task considering AZ Alkmaar is at the other end of the field. The last season runners-up already have a slight edge over the 16th positioned team in the same table. They will visit on the back of a 1-1 draw at home against Zwolle in the schedule.
Fortuna Sittard vs AZ Alkmaar Head-to-head (h2h)
- The visitor has won the previous six meetings in a row.
- The host has recorded only two of the last ten overall wins.
- Their most recent encounter gave a 4-0 home win for AZ.
- Both teams have scored in four of the last ten fixtures.
Fortuna Sittard vs AZ Alkmaar Prediction
The match is sizing to be an away win in full-time, and their previous positions in the league table are the first-most reason to back the traveling side to take all three points from the clash. Besides, Fortuna Sittard has suffered defeats in both their opening fixtures this season.
The host has won none of their h2h meetings with Alkmaar since 1998. AZ has been unbeaten in all their six visits since then, which is why backing the away win seems the ideal choice. At 1.50 odds, the away win in full-time will probably yield decent returns for the punters.
Another probable result from the match is the chance of a high-scoring affair. With the visitors coming in hot with their 2nd spot from the last season campaign, we can expect the favorites to not hold back in their attacks against a weaker side.
Even though the host is not likely to be the favorites to win, they have the ground advantage in the fixture and it will probably aid them in at least slotting in a goal. Hence, the BTTS will also come in handy for the encounter at Fortuna Sittard Stadion.
