Our prediction for this Netherlands Eredivisie match:
Fortuna Sittard and Twente go head to head at Fortuna Sittard Stadion in what is expected to be an exciting Eredivisie game. Sittard have been struggling on the travels of late, but they did well to beat Volendam 3-1 in their last home game. There are no fresh injury concerns in the home team ahead of Sunday’s football match.
The Reds, on the other hand, defeated the likes of Heerenveen and Vitesse in the previous two league fixtures to climb to top three in the standings. Fortuna, though, are tough to beat at home and we do not believe that Twente are capable of grabbing more than one point from the match. Naci Unuvar remains on the sidelines with injury, while Max Bruns faces race against the clock to be fit for Sunday’s showdown. A man to keep an eye on in the away team will be winger Michel Vlap, who scored the winner against Heerenveen.
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.
