Utrecht to Win to Nil
Utrecht need to rouse themselves following a four-game winless slump, though a date with struggling Fortuna Sittard could be just the tonic the hosts need. Fortuna have lost four of their last five matches, failing to score on three separate occasions and their lack of punch in the final third should mean they toil again when they visit the Stadion Galgenwaard. With the visitor’s abject output up front a factor, bettors are advised to back Utrecht to win to nil on Saturday.
Utrecht -1.0 Goal Handicap
Second from bottom Fortuna have been playing with the air of a team who are starting to believe their number is up and Sittard shipping a harrowing seven goals in their last two matches alone, without striking back with a single effort of their own. Utrecht will fancy their chances of punishing the same leaky defence and stake on the hosts with a -1.0 goal handicap could be a bet worth considering.
Half Time Result: Utrecht
Fortuna Sittard have gone in behind at the break in a notable seven of their 14 Eredivisie away assignments this season and the relegation candidate’s nasty habit for slipping behind early on could scupper their chances of success at Utrecht. Only Cambuur (31) have shipped more first half goals than Fortuna (28) this term, and Sittard are worth opposing in the half time result markets with that slow starting habit in mind.
Utrecht vs Fortuna Sittard Match Preview and Team News
January signing Henk Veerman is sidelined with an arm injury and could miss Saturday’s game, however, the striker has made a tepid start to his Utrecht career and probably won’t be missed. Utrecht were held to a 1-1 draw at RKC last time out and though they haven’t won in their last four attempts, they still hold a decent five-point buffer over Groningen in the race to secure the Eredivisie’s final continental qualification berth.
Sjors Ultee has the luxury of a clean bill of health this weekend, giving the Fortuna Sittard manager plenty of options to choose from ahead of the club’s trip to play Utrecht. Fortuna’s run of four defeats in five has pushed them down to second last place in the Eredivisie, though a victory this week could take them out of the drop zone again.
