Fortuna Sittard to Win

Fortuna Sittard kicked off their 2021/22 Eredivisie in style last week with a 2-1 victory on their own patch over a strong Twente outfit, and back at the same venue on Friday, they are our tip to harness home advantage again. Fortuna beat RKC home and away last term, indeed, they have beaten the same side four times in the teams’ last five encounters, and that excellent head-to-head record makes them favourites to prevail again this week.

Both Teams to Score

BTTS landed in each of Fortuna Sittard and RKC’s Eredivisie assignments last week and the same market could be worth pursuing when they line up against each other on Friday. Each of the last four tussles between the clubs produced goals at both ends and neither defence looks reliable enough to claim a clean sheet in Friday’s face off.

Over 2.5 Goals

RKC came out on the wrong side of a five-goal thriller at Heerenveen in their last outing and the mix of incisive finishing and substandard defending they displayed should produce more action when they visit Fortuna later this week. The last five duels between the clubs spawned a whopping 3.8 goals per 90 minutes and we’re tipping their latest battle to reach similar levels of excitement.

Fortuna Sittard vs RKC: Match Preview

Fortuna Sittard

Following a 2020/21 campaign where they achieved their best Eredivisie finish since 1998, Fortuna had plenty of reasons to be positive ahead of the new season and their 2-1 opening day triumph over Twente hinted that another successful year under manager Sjors Ultee was possible. Fortuna smashed and grabbed their way to the points last week, mustering just six shots to their opponent’s 17, though the clinical edge they showed in the final third was nonetheless impressive.

RKC

The Mandemakers Stadion was bouncing last week after RKC sprung an opening day surprise against AZ Alkmaar, though RKC returned to earth with a thump at Heerenveen last time out, where they were beaten 3-2. The newly-promoted outfit gave a good account of themselves despite their defeat, though they found Henk Veerman’s finishing for the hosts to hot to handle.
