Our prediction for this Netherlands Eredivisie match:
Fortuna Sittard and Cambuur square off against each other at Fortuna Sittard Stadion in what is expected to be a close Eredivisie game. The hosts made a slow start to the season, with the team losing to both Ajax and Twente, but it has to be noted that their display in the defeat to the Amsterdammers was anything but poor. There are no fresh injury worries in the home team ahead of Matchday 3.
Cambuur, on the other hand, have been struggling in front of goal at the start of the season, which is probably the main reason why home win should be considered. In their last encounter at Fortuna Sittard Stadion Fortuna Sittard defeated Cambuur thanks to George Cox’s late goal, and we predict that the history is going to repeat itself. As for the visiting side, Maxim Gullit remains a doubt.
