Fortuna Sittard vs VVV-Venlo
Date: Saturday, 30 January 2021
Kick-Off at 19.00 UK
Venue: Fortuna Sittard Stadion.
Bottom-half neighbours Fortuna Sittard and VVV are set to battle it out in a low-profile Eredivisie game on Saturday evening at Fortuna Sittard Stadium. Both sides sit comfortably at a secure distance from the red zone at the moment, but a potential negative thread could well drop them into the relegation scrap in the final part of the season.
The visitors will no doubts enter the game as the form favourites, although the sportsbooks favour the hosts to claim the spoils. VVV Venlo have been struggling badly for results at the start of the season but their form has seen an enormous rise in January. The team led by Hans de Koning won four and drew one of the last five matches in all competitions. The streak helped The Good Old escape the relegation area.

Five of the last six head to head affairs between the two sides have seen goals at both ends.
Fortuna Sittard vs VVV-Venlo Prediction
Fortuna have been playing hot and cold throughout the season, but they seem to be doing enough to stay away from the relegation battle.
Sjors Ultee’s troops won and lost three apiece of the last six outings across competitions. They offered a strong resistance in a narrow home loss to Ajax (1-2) last weekend. They have previously kept a clean sheet in an important away win at PEC Zwolle.
The Good Old have also tightened things up at the back lately. They kept clean sheets in back-to-back wins over Go Ahead Eagles (1-0 in KNVB Beker) and Twente (0-1 in Eredivisie).
Since both sides have done well defensively of late, we can hardly ignore the attractive 2.20 odds offered for the Under 2.5 goals FT pick here.
As for the outcome, the value in with the in-form visitors who are 1.80 not to lose on Saturday evening.
