VVV-Venlo vs Fortuna Sittard
Date: Saturday, 10 November 2018
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Seacon Stadion – De Koel (Venlo).
Venlo will welcome the newcomers Sittard to De Koel this Saturday on the Round 12 of the Eredivisie.
In the last 6 matches across all venues, the Yellow-Black Army has lost 3 games and won 2 in return. In the 4 games played at home, they have 2 wins and a defeat, which was against Ajax in Round 2.
Currently, they are on a 3 game unbeaten run at home, including 2 consecutive wins. But they are 8th in the league equal on points with Vitesse and AZ, and a win will take them to 5th position.
The team managed by Maurice Steijn finished 15th in the last season despite a good start and he would not want that to repeat this season. The league is really competitive and a win would lift their morale as well.
The visitors are just 2 points below their opponents for Saturday and are currently at 10th in the table. It is more than convincing for a team who were promoted this season. Manager Rene Eijer will have to maintain the team’s mentality and maybe they will finish in the top 5.
Sittard is fresh from 2 consecutive wins in the league and had some close games this season. From the last 6 games, they have 3 wins and 2 defeats. In their last 5 matches, a score of over 2.5 goals was produced.
Eijer will have to improve his team’s away performance. They have won 3 and lost 1 of their recent 5 matches on the road.
So with Europa League spot within grasp, the hosts will try to take 3 points from this match, but their opponents will be a hard nut to crack.
