Our prediction for this Netherlands Eredivisie match:
VVV-Venlo and Fortuna Sittard take on each other at Seacon Stadion – De Koel in the Eredivisie round 26. Venlo are eager to put an end to their six-game losing run in the Eredivisie, but given the current atmosphere in their dressing room, we do not believe that home win should be considered. All Dekker, Donis, and Machach are likely to miss the match through injuries.
Fortuna Sittard, on the other hand, aim to make amends for back-to-back defeats to Groningen and PSV. Sjors Ultee’s men defeated Venlo 3-2 in the first half of the season, which is yet another reason why we are tempted to put our money on the visiting team. Despite failing to impress in the defeat to PSV, German attacker Sebastian Polter is widely expected to lead the line for the visitors, while both Hansson and Moutoussamy are pushing for a start.
Highlighted Player (Danny Post):
Born in Amsterdam, Netherlands, Danny Post is a Dutch footballer who plays for VVV-Venlo as a midfielder. Post started his senior career Haarlem, but after making no more than 14 appearances with the club, he joined Groningen in 2009.
The Dutch footballer player only one league game for the Green and White Army as he was loaned to Cambuur in 2010. The next stop in his career was Dordrecht, where he established himself as a first-team regular. After scoring four goals in 50 league appearances for the club, Danny Post moved to VVV-Venlo in 2013. Post made his VVV debut in a goalless draw with Eindhovan on August 2, 2013.
He scored his first goal for the club in a 3-0 win over Achilles ’29 on March 9, 2014. His main position is defensive midfield, but he is capable of producing fine displays as both central midfielder and centre-back. His preferred foot is right.
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.
