      Tip Reasoning

      • Over 2.5 goals have been scored in 6 of the last 7 meetings between these two clubs.
      • Over 2.5 goals have been produced in 4 of Fortuna Sittard’s last 6 matches.
      • Fortuna Sittard have won 6 of their 11 home games in the Eredivisie.
      • Emmen have lost 9 of their 11 away games in the Eredivisie.

      Emmen have been very poor on the road this season

      Fortuna Sittard lost 2-0 away at Heracles last weekend while Emmen played on Tuesday night at home to Twente and claimed a 2-0 victory, meaning that Saturday’s visitors leapfrogged their hosts and now sit 2pts clear of Fortuna Sittard in 12th place. Emmen also head into this weekends’ clash as the form favourites with three wins from their last five competitive and non-competitive matches.

      However, the visitors also boast one of the worst away records in the Eredivisie this season, performing much better in their own backyard than on the road, and this is something Fortuna Sittard will be confident they can expose to their own advantage. We’re expecting goals in this game as six of the last seven meetings between the two clubs have produced over 2.5 goals, while four of Fortuna Sittard’s last six matches have also seen at least 3-goals scored.

      The hosts have won six and only lost three of their home games in the league so far this season while Emmen are yet to win on the road and have lost nine of their eleven away games to date, so you can see why we have backed a 2-1 win for the hosts this weekend. Fortuna Sittard average 1.82 points per home game and if they can continue their good form at home then they stand a great chance of remaining in the Eredivisie for another season, while Emmen average just 0.18 points per away game and have been completely reliant on their home form to keep them out of the relegation zone.

      Fortuna Sittard have won twice as many games at home as they have lost

      Fortuna Sittard score an average of 1.91 goals per home game and concede 1.45 goals while Emmen score an average of 0.45 goals per away game and concede 2.55 goals, adding weight to our prediction for a 2-1 home win on Saturday. Both teams have scored in 73% of the hosts’ home matches as well as in 45% of the visitors away trips, and we have backed both teams to find the back of the net this weekend.

      Over 2.5 goals have been scored in 64% of Fortuna Sittard’s home games and 55% of Emmen’s trips on the road, with an average of 3.36 total goals being scored in the hosts’ home matches and 3.00 being produced in the visitors’ away games. Fortuna Sittard have only kept clean sheets in 27% of their home matches but have only failed to score in 9% and a majority of the hosts’ wins this season (4) have been obtained with a 1-goal margin, while Emmen are yet to keep a clean sheet on the road.

      We’re confident that over 2.5 goals will be scored in Saturday’s clash and we have predicted a final scoreline of 2-1 in favour of Fortuna Sittard. The hosts are strongest at home while their guests have proven weak on the road and this is the main reason we have backed Fortuna Sittard to claim all 3pts this weekend. The hosts don’t keep many clean sheets in their own backyard but they do score plenty of goals there and the visitors haven’t kept a clean sheet or won away from home so far this season.
