Fortuna Sittard vs PEC Zwolle
Date: Friday, 6 November 2020
Kick-Off at 19.00 UK
Venue: Fortuna Sittard Stadium.
Fortuna Sittard sit rock-bottomed in Eredivisie after earning just two points in seven games and host PEC Zwolle desperate to escape the spot on Friday already, sitting two behind 15th placed ADO Den Haag. They beat Roda JC (0-2) in KNVB Beker last week but went on to suffer an expected loss at Ajax (5-2), despite George Cox’s early opener which has them in front for the first half-hour.
PEC Zwolle have seen a convincing loss to Twente (5-1) last week and saw a streak of two draws ended, after holding off RKC Waalwijk (1-1) and Willem II (0-0). They opened the campaign well in September but haven’t felt really confident since, which will be a worry for John Stegeman as his men look to keep up with the top 7.
Bluefingers have been scoring and conceding goals on the road regularly and this promises an exciting clash at Fortuna Sittard Stadium. The visitors will certainly hope this will not be the same sort of a challenge they’ve seen so far when away from home, but it does come off like they’ll have to outgun Fortuna to secure the important points still early in the new campaign.
