Kick-Off at 15.30 UK
Venue: Fortuna Sittard Stadion, Sittard.
One round remains in Dutch Eredivisie before the Christmas break and it will take place on Tuesday & Wednesday. The action starts with battle of the strugglers as Fortuna Sittard welcomes RKC Waalwijk.
Both teams are currently on the edge of the relegation zone, but with some surprising results in the last couple of weeks. Fortuna managed to achieve back to back victories against Willem II and Heracles, while RKC were victorious versus Twente and VVV Venlo.
Hosts are labelled as favorites with a 2.00 odds despite the fact they have only one victory at this venue so far. RKC’s record on the road has been bad, but not as terrible as last season. Potential three points would mean a lot for both sides that’s for sure.

Fortuna Sittard vs RKC Waalwijk Prediction
Hosts were hammered to the bottom of the table after ten rounds, before abovementioned victories. Last weekend they offered another solid performance and escaped Utrecht with a big point. Equalizer was scored by Sebastian Polter, and this was the third game in a row for this player to score a goal.
Squad from Sittard is having massive issues when it comes to defending, conceding 31 goals in only 13 duels. The only two teams with worse record are VVV and ADO Den Haag.
RKC have been playing much better in comparison to the previous season. Games on the road have been an issue, as 66% loss rate is quite high. We don’t think they will avoid defeat in Sittard, but should score at least one goal.
