Fortuna Sittard to Win

Fortuna Sittard last played Twente on their own patch as recently as May and their dominant performance that afternoon makes them our tip to pocket maximum points on Saturday. Fortuna hammered Twente 3-0 three months ago in a one-sided contest where the hosts mustered 21 attempts to the visitor’s four. With both teams starting the new campaign with largely the same players as the last, Fortuna look an excellent price to prevail again.

Over 2.5 Goals

Fortuna’s resounding victory over Twente in May was the fourth time in five encounters between the clubs where over 2.5 goals were scored and we’re anticipating another exciting contest when the rivals square off on Saturday. Five of Fortuna’s last nine Eredivisie home assignments produced at least three goals and with further drama looking likely, the over 2.5 goals market appeals again.

Zian Flemming to Score Anytime

Ex-Ajax academy starlet Zian Flemming made a real splash for Fortuna Sittard last season when he scored 12 times in 33 Eredivisie appearances. The 23-year-old has been linked with a move abroad this summer and he can do his chances of securing a big-money switch with a goalscoring performance against Twente.

Fortuna Sittard vs Twente: Match Preview

Fortuna Sittard

Last season, Fortuna Sittard achieved their best finish since 1997/98 when they landed 11th spot, while their haul of 50 goals was their best for a single top-flight campaign since 1987/88. Manager Sjors Ultee will be determined to build on that success in 2021/22, so expect to see more of the aggressive style that saw Fortuna rack up more fouls per game on average (12.1) than any other Eredivisie team last term.

Twente

Twente finished just above Fortuna Sittard by goal difference last season and their summer capture of experience Dutch striker Ricky van Wolfswinkel should help to bolster their numbers in the final third even further this year. The burly centre-forward has 50 goals in 125 career appearances in the Eredivisie and he returns to his homeland after a four-year stay with Basel in Switzerland.
