Our prediction for this Netherlands Eredivisie match:
Fortuna Sittard will be aiming to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over Volendam when they take on Heerenveen in the Eredivisie round 20. Fortuna Sittard have regained a much-needed confidence and they are surely capable of matching Heerenveen in front of home fans. Deroy Duarte is still on international duty with Cape Verde, but there are no fresh injury worries in the home team.
Kees van Wonderen’s troops, on the other hand, failed to win the previous six league matches. Heerenveen, though, have been scoring goals for fun of late and given their attacking potential, we believe that both teams to score betting option should be considered. The good news for the visiting team is that Iraq defender Hussein Ali is back from international duty. In the first half of the season Heerenveen defeated Fortuna Sittard 3-0 and yet another high-scoring affair is on the horizon.
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.
