RKC Waalwijk vs Fortuna Sittard
Netherlands – Eredivisie
Date: Wednesday, 27 January 2021
Kick-off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Mandemakers Stadion.
RKC are one of the worst teams in the competition, and are placed just above the relegation zone at the moment. They have scored the least number of goals of all the teams in the contest, and have also won just thrice during the campaign.
Going on, they are on a long winless run as of now in both home matches, as well as on the road, and have been conceding in plenty in the meanwhile.
However, note that Fortunezen are counted amongst the good teams in the Dutch top flight. Despite their inconsistency against some of the top tier squads, they have always performed well against teams placed in the mid-table and bottom tier of the league table.
Going on, they have also been scoring at an impressive rate lately, and on top of all that, they also have a great h2h record against this opponent over the years.
As such, expect Fortuna Sittard to have the upper hand this Wednesday.
