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

Draw

Fortuna Sittard and NEC are struggling to build momentum at present and wins for both have been hard to come by. Fortuna have gone five games in the Eredivisie without the taste of victory while NEC failed to win any of their last four assignments. With both teams visibly low on confidence a share of the spoils in Sittard looks the likeliest outcome on Saturday.

Under 2.5 Goals

Both Fortuna and NEC have been lacking in the goalscoring department this season, in fact, the clubs are averaging just 1.0 goal per 90 minutes each in the Eredivisie so far. Neither set of attackers has found their shooting boots this term, and as a result, we should expect a low-scoring encounter when the teams meet on Saturday. With that in mind, bettors are advised to back under 2.5 goals to hit the net in Sittard.

NEC +1 Goal

NEC (5) have scored more often on the road than Fortuna (4) have at home this season and the visitors’ knack for producing moments on their travels marks them out as an interesting price in the +1 handicap this week. A +1 handicap bet on the team visiting Sittard would have returned a winner in each of Fortuna’s last two home tests, and we recommend backing NEC in the same market this weekend.

Fortuna Sittard vs NEC: Match Preview

Fortuna Sittard team news

Zian Flemming and Arianit Ferati are out of Saturday’s game with an injury and COVID-19 respectively, while key attacker Lisandro Semedo has yet to make his comeback. Fortuna bounced back well from their heavy defeat to champions Ajax by earning a hard-fought point at in-form Vitesse in their last Eredivisie fixture. Still, Fortuna have dropped points in all but one of their league contests since the summer.

NEC team news

Defender Rens Van Eijden along with midfield duo Mathias De Wolf have work to do to be fit for Saturday’s game. NEC were on the cusp of a heroic victory at Feyenoord last weekend before a capitulation the final ten minutes saw them conceded three times. The club from Nijmegen are without a win in four matches, though their strong start to the season means they are still handily placed in 10th.
