These odds from Ladbrokes were correct at the time of writing.

Fortuna Sittard Double Chance

Fortuna will kick off their final fixture of the campaign in the relegation playoff position in the Eredivisie, though the right result on Sunday could save their skins. Sittard have battled well against the drop in the last weeks of the season, winning three, drawing one and losing just once in five assignments and with motivation to perform peaking, they should prove tough to beat for an NEC side with little to play for.

Both Teams to Score

Relegation-threatened Sittard have kept only two clean sheets in 16 away fixtures this term, so bettors shouldn’t expect them to record a shutout in Nijmegen on Sunday. Fortuna have notched in 100% of their last six Eredivisie contests however, so it makes sense to expect action at both ends at Goffertstadion in what should be a nail-biting encounter.

Zian Flemming to Score Anytime

Fortuna talisman Zian Flemming was absent for his team’s 2-1 reverse at Vitesse through suspension on Wednesday and boy did they miss him. Flemming had bagged four goals in three appearances before his ban and his return to the XI on Sunday heightens Sittard’s chances of success immeasurably. Flemming has a real eye for goal at present and as such, he should be a prime choice for punters in the anytime scorer stakes this weekend.

NEC vs Fortuna Sittard Match Preview and Team News


Magnus Mattsson, Edgar Barreto and Wilfried Bony are expected to miss out for NEC again this week. Roger Meijer watched his team go three goals down at PSV on Wednesday before his troops fired back with two late consolation efforts. NEC have now lost four of their last five Eredivisie fixtures as they limp over the line.

Fortuna Sittard

Fortuna Head Coach Sjors Ultee has the luxury of a clean bill of health ahead of Sunday’s game and Zian Flemming’s return from suspension is a major boost. Sittard can still finish anywhere between 14th and 17th place this weekend, with relegation, a playoff to beat the drop and complete safety all still on the table.
