Our prediction for this Netherlands Eredivisie match:
Van Donge & De Roo Stadion will host Sunday’s football game between Excelsior and Fortuna Sittard, the two bottom-table sides. Excelsior are eager to escape the danger zone and we are positive that they will go all guns blazing at the visitors. Midfielder Serano Seymor is pushing for a start, while all Nathan Markelo, Vicente Besuijen, and Jacky Donkor are rated doubtful for the match.
Fortuna, on the other hand, have already secured the Eredivisie survival, meaning that they have nothing to play for in the penultimate game of the process. Since Excelsior are desperate to pick up all three points from the match, home win should be considered. Midfielder Dimitrios Siovas misses out through suspension, while Thomas Buitink continues to miss out with an ACL injury. In the first half of the season Fortuna Sittard defeated Excelsior thanks to Remy Vita’s goal, meaning that the hosts are hungry for revenge.
Highlighted Team (Sittard):
Fortuna Sittard is one of the newer additions to Dutch football as the club was founded on July 1, 1968. During the 1990s talented footballers such as Kevin Hofland, Mark van Bommel, and Fernando Ricksen played for the club, but they failed to close the gap between Dutch giants Ajax and PSV. In 1999, though, the Fortunezen did well to make it to the Dutch Cup final, with the team facing Ajax in the title game.
Amsterdammers defeated Fortuna Sittard 2-0 at De Kuip, with Jesper Gronkjaer scoring a brace. Fortuna Sittard players wear yellow shirts and green shorts when playing at home, while their away kit is white. The Fortunezen host their rivals at Fortuna Sittard Stadion. The venue was built in 1999, and it can hold up to 12,500 spectators.
Aforementioned midfielder Mark Van Bommel is the most notable footballer who played for the club. After ending his spell with Fortuna Sittard in 1999, Mark van Bommel played for the likes of PSV, Barcelona, Bayern Munchen, and Milan.
