Our prediction for this Netherlands Eredivisie match:
Go Ahead Eagles play host to Fortuna Sittard at their De Adelaarshorst on day 30 of the 2022/2023 Eredivisie campaign. Go Ahead Eagles suffered a dip in form, and, as a result, they are only five points clear of the relegation zone ahead of Sunday’s encounter. All Jamal Amofa, Fredrik Oppegard, Valaker Edvardsen, and Gerrit Nauber have been struggling with injuries of late, and the quartet is unlikely to recover in time to face the Fortunezen.
Julio Velazquez’s men, on the other hand, aim to make amends for back-to-back defeats to Ajax (0-4) and AZ Alkmaar (0-3). Fortuna Sittard and Go Ahead Eagles seem to be evenly matched at the moment, and, taking everything into account, we believe that gamblers from all around the globe can find value in betting on draw. There are no fresh injury worries in the away team ahead of the trip to Deventer.
Highlighted Player (Oguzhan Ozyakup):
The 23-year-old Netherlands-born Turkish international Oguzhan Ozyakup is a midfielder who started his professional career at Premier League giants Arsenal. Ozyakup arrived to the London-based club as a schoolboy from AZ and went through Arsenal academy, before making his competitive debut in a League Cup match against Shrewsbury Town, when he supplied the assist for Yossi Benayoun in a 3-1 victory.
The Turkish international however failed to break into the first-team and was transferred to Besiktas in 2012. Turkey international has passed the 100-match mark for his club in 2016 and is considered one of the more experienced and most valuable players of the club, despite he is only 23 years of age.
The talented midfielder was subject of intense transfer speculation during the 2016 summer transfer window with Valencia reportedly expressing interest in signing the Turkish footballer, but Ozyakup remained at Besiktas and went on to extend his contract, which will keep him at the Vodafone Arena until 2018.
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.
