Our prediction for this Netherlands Eredivisie match:
Sparta Stadion Het Kasteel will host Saturday’s Eredivisie game between Sparta Rotterdam and Fortuna Sittard, the two teams who are eyeing a spot in the Conference League playoffs. Sparta aim to make amends for a 3-1 loss to Utrecht, and they are likely to fight tooth and nail against the Yellow-Greens. Midfielder Younes Namli remains on the sidelines with a knee injury, alongside goalkeeper Tim Coremans.
The visitors, on the other hand, have been in a fine form of late, with the team extending their unbeaten run to six games thanks to a 1-1 draw with Feyenoord at De Kuip. Fortuna Sittard and Sparta Rotterdam seem to be evenly matched at the moment, and, taking everything into account, punters from all around the globe can find value in betting on draw. Deroy Duarte is injured for the away team, while fellow midfielder Dimitrios Siovas is a major doubt.
Highlighted Player (Aaron Meijers):
After spending his youth career at AVV Andijk and FC Volendam, Aaron Meijers continued playing for the Palingboeren at senior level. After scoring four goals in 124 league appearances for Volendam, the pacey left back joined fellow Dutch outfit RKC Waalwijk in 2010.
Aaaron Meijers quickly established himself as a first-team regular at RKC, but after playing 62 games in the league for the Yellow and Blues, he moved to ADO Den Haag in 2012. The Dutch footballer made his ADO Den Haag debut on August 12, 2012 in a 2-2 draw with Vitesse, and he has been playing for De Ooievaars ever since.
Aaaron Meijers was born in Delft, Netherlands on October 28, 1987. His main position is left-back, but he is capable of producing fine displays as central midfielder and left winger as well. His preferred foot is left, and he has a contract with ADO Den Haag until June 30, 2022.
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.
