Fortuna Sittard vs Willem II
Date: Saturday, 5 December 2020
Kick-Off at 17.45 UK
Venue: Fortuna Sittard Stadion.
Willem II keep sinking on Eredivisie table after losing five out of the last seven games. Squad from Tilburg is nowhere close to form and quality which secured them a spot in Europa League last season, despite the fact roster hasn’t changed much. Can they finally find some sort of consistency and get away from the relegation zone?
Tricolores are paying a visit to Sittard this Saturday to face last placed Fortuna. Hosts collected only one point from the last four divisional clashes, so it is harder to say who is more desperate to earn victory. Bookmakers have given the advantage to visitors, offering 2.20 odds on Willem’s victory.

Fortuna Sittard vs Willem II Prediction
Fortuna are still winless in this brand new Eredivisie season. All of their points came from draws versus AZ Alkmaar, Emmen and Zwolle. They have the second worst defense in the league which conceded 27 goals in 10 matches.
We also find them as one of top candidates to suffer relegation this season. Fortuna didn’t lose a lot of games at this stadium though.
Considering the fact Willem II are also winless when it comes to away days, draw seems like the most realistic outcome.
As for the goals market, tradition says you can count on a lot of goals when these teams meet. Squad from Tilburg kept just one clean sheet in last nine appearances across competitions.
Both teams to score at 1.53 odds will do nicely as big Saturday afternoon banker.
