Tip Reasoning

  • The hosts home matches are averaging 3.1 goals per game.
  • Sparta Rotterdam are seeing three or more goals in exactly half of their away fixtures.
  • Both teams have scored in five of the last seven meetings between these two sides.

Fortuna’s issues lie at the back

Fortuna Sittard is currently languishing fourth from the bottom after claiming just six wins from 28 matches played so far in the Eredivisie. This is largely due to the instability of their defensive line. They’ve conceded the joint-most goals so far this season (61) and have kept just five clean sheets across those 28 matches. They come into this one having been defeated in four of their last six matches and will see this match against Sparta Rotterdam as one they must win.

Visitors Sparta Rotterdam have been even worse than Fortuna Sittard this campaign. They sit bottom of the pile and are point and three places away from their opponents in the league standings. Their one saving grace is that they have two games in hand over those immediately above them but their inability to consistently find the back of the net has hampered them, particularly on the road. De Kasteelheren have just one solitary away victory to their name so far but have scored a league-low eight away goals and this is an area that needs drastic improvement if they’re to stand a chance of pushing up the table.

Goals are the play

It’s a tough one to call as neither of these sides has a cutting edge. Quite frankly, it’s a case of who can disguise their weaknesses better than the other. This is a huge match that will seriously affect the bottom of the table and we think the best angle for this one is on goals. The hosts’ home matches are averaging 3.1 goals per game and given neither of these teams knows how to defend, we think both could go for it and as such, we believe there should be at least three goals scored. If pushed, a 2-1 home victory would be most likely.
