Fortuna Sittard vs Heerenveen Prediction & Match Preview

Fortuna Sittard vs Heerenveen
Dutch Eredivisie
Date: Saturday, 19 September 2020
Kick-Off at 20.00 UK
Venue: Fortuna Stadion, Sittard.

Eredivisie’s Saturday action ends in Sittard, where Fortuna welcomes Heerenveen.

Both sides enjoy playing open football, usually with 4-3-3 formations, so their games often end with high number of goals.

Heerenveen were one of the most entertaining teams to watch in previous campaign, scoring and conceding 41 goals each in 26 duels.

If the season was not stopped due to pandemic, Fortuna Sittard would be forced to play playoffs in order to avoid relegation. They will most likely battle against relegation in upcoming campaign as well.

In terms of the odds, visitors are labelled as favorites for the win at 2.05. That is not a good value in our opinion because Heerenveen usually performs much worse when playing away from home.

Fortuna Sittard vs Heerenveen Head-to-head

As mentioned above, these teams enjoy high-scoring affairs. Six out of the last seven head to head encounters ended either with BTTS or Over 2.5 FT, or in most cases both.

There were 18 duels in the past and stats are heavily favouring Heerenveen – 11-4 when it comes to victories. Not a single match at this stadium ended as a draw. 27 goals were scored in Sittard, which averages 3.00 per duel.

They faced two times last season – game at this stadium was won by the hosts 2-1, while match in Heerenveen ended without a winner 1-1 FT.

Fortuna Sittard vs Heerenveen Prediction

Staying away from the full-time winner market is a good decision in our opinion. We are still in early stages of the season, and these teams can be very unpredictable.

Backing goals is the best option, as all signs are pointing at direction of high-scoring match. Both teams to score & Over 2.5 FT tip is currently at 1.93 and is our primary choice.

As for the alternative, it’s only for value bet seekers – both teams to score in both halves at 9.00.
