Our prediction for this Netherlands Eredivisie match:
Fortuna Sittard and Cambuur face each other in the Eredivisie round 9 in what is expected to be a close encounter. Cambuur are eyeing their fifth win of the season, but they will have to prove their worth on the field. The newcomers rolled over Sparta 4-0 in their last away game, which is surely giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of the trip to Sittard. Defender Alex Bangura is banned for the visiting side, while midfielder Jamie Jacobs is likely to miss the game through injury.
The hosts, on the other hand, failed to impress in a 3-1 loss to NEC Nijmegen before the international break, and given their shaky defence, away win should be considered. You should bear in mind that Sjors Ultee’s men have conceded nine goals in total in the previous three league fixtures. Defender Mickael Tirpan is injured for the hosts, while both Zian Flemming and Lisandro Semedo are rated doubtful for the game.
