Fortuna Sittard vs Heerenveen Match preview
With their new year starting off in the wrong foot, Fortuna Sittard has been winless in their recent three matches with two draws in it. Sjors Ultee will be concerned about his team’s dip in form in the campaign lately.
Sittard has dropped points in four of the last five fixtures in the league which has pulled them closer to the relegation zone. They were on the road in their last match in the league against Sparta Rotterdam. Both teams scored a goal each with Sittard losing the lead in the second half.
Heerenveen had their previous encounter with Alkmaar at home. Even though Heerenveen scored the equalizer, Alkmaar scored the winner in the 75th minute to take all three points from the 1-2 encounter.
With three losses in their last eight matches across all major competitions, Heerenveen is on a better form. Even so, they are winless in their previous four fixtures in the campaign. Having lost their last two matches in succession, Johnny Jansen will have to try changes in their eleven to find a win.
Fortuna Sittard vs Heerenveen Prediction
Facing the bottom part teams in the league yielded four consecutive wins for Sittard at home recently. However, the host did lose their previous home match while facing a top part team like Vitesse with a 1-3 scoreline.
So, the home team will not be relying on their home ground advantage in the match. Along with that, Sittard has been scoring 1.9 goals per match at home in the campaign. Also, they have won only 5 of their 10 attempts at home in the contest.
On the other hand, Heerenveen is on a mixed form in the league with four each win and loss in their nine away fixtures. The guest has lost two of their last five fixtures with both losses coming against stronger teams like PSV and Feyenoord.
Johnny Jansen’s boys have lost only four of their last ten away games in their schedule across major contests. Their prior away match with Feyenoord ended in a 3-1 loss for Heerenveen. So, we can expect the guest to perform better against a weaker side in the league table.
On this basis, the punters can settle on Heerenveen as the favorites to win in the clash. Since both teams have failed to win this year, it is better to draw no bet upon Heerenveen. Also, we can expect the total score to be under 3.5 goals in ninety minutes.
