Vitesse vs Fortuna Sittard
Netherlands – Eredivisie
Date: Saturday, 21 September 2019
Kick-off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: GelreDome (Arnhem).
Vitesse succumbed to their first defeat of the new campaign in their previous trip on the road to Eindhoven, which saw Malen single-handedly run riot over Vitesse’s defensive third. The striker mercilessly slotted five unanswered goals into the back of the net all on his own, leaving Vittesse to make the trip back home empty-handed.
Fortuna Sittard are currently at the bottom half of the table and are one of the only two teams left to register a win. The squad have been at the losing end in three of their previous five games and have picked no more than a point on two occasions as well.
Given that visitors will also be coming into the clash this weekend on the back of a 3-2 defeat at home to Twente, Fortuna Sittard have little or no chance of coming out on top in this one as Vitesse are unbeaten on home soil so far.

- Fortuna Sittard lost by a 2-1 scorecard when they last met here.

- A low scoring matchup, with under 2.5 goals on the scorecards, have featured just once in their last six games here.
Vitesse vs Fortuna Sittard Prediction
Although the hosts were subjected to a defeat with a very embarrassing scoreline in their last clash, that alone does not guarantee even a glimmer of hope for Sittard in this one.
The home team have not tasted defeat in any of their fixtures on home soil, and are on a two-match winning streak here at the moment. Furthermore, seven of the ten goals that Vitesse have scored so far have come from their clashes at home.
To make matters worse the visitors, it is worth mentioning that the away side have not been able to clinch the win in any of their previous five trips to this stadium. Taking into account that their last win here came way back in the year of 1999, Vitesse are more than likely to come away with all three points this weekend.
Additionally, the hosts have not been shy in getting their names on the scoresheet and have netted two goals or more in each of their last three games here in a row. With Sittard hardly making an impact in their previous two outings, expect Vitesse to win and to wrap things up with under 4.5 goals on the charts.
