Feyenoord will take on Fortuna Sittard at home in the 15th Eredivisie matchday. The Rotterdammers can get back to within a point of Ajax if they win, while the Limburg outfit will be looking to get out of the danger zone. Feyenoord have usually scored easily against Fortuna Sittard in the past. Will it be the same again this Sunday?
Feyenoord dream of the league title
Coach Arne Slot surprised everyone by assembling a great team. However, it was an even bigger surprise when he revealed that Feyenoord can actually be seen as title contender in the current season. The Rotterdam club is in 2nd place in the Eredivisie with 32 points. In the event of a win, the deficit to Ajax is just one point. Feyenoord owe this good position mainly to their home games, in which they won six times and drew only once. By the way, you can free bet on the game.
Bryan Linssen and Guus Til are joint top scorers and both scored eight goals. In addition, Cyriel Dessers also scored four times in the current season and almost all of his goals secured a result. Last week Feyenoord won 2-1 against Heracles Almelo, both goals coming from Luis Sinisterra. Feyenoord have won four of the last five home games against Fortuna Sittard. Last season, the same poster ended in 2-0.
Fortuna Sittard in the danger zone
Fortuna Sittard is currently in 17th place in the Eredivisie with only 9 points. The danger zone is a fact, but one win can already start to change that. Fortuna Sittard managed to win 2018 for the last time at De Kuip, back then the game ended 0-2. The Limburgers' chances of surprising themselves on Sunday seem slim. Fortuna Sittard lost the last five games. Although the team has scored seven goals, it has also conceded 17. Last Thursday night Fortuna Sittard went down 2-1 at AZ.
Fortuna Sittard has not won a single away game in the current season. It lost five times and drew twice. The last three away games in the league were lost. Midfielder Mats Seuntjes is a bright spot for the team from Sittard. The former AZ player has already scored seven goals and one assist this season.
Feyenoord have been strong this season and are hard to beat at home. The home side has a lot of scoring power and Fortuna Sittard will have to go in the back. The Rotterdammers will take the win and do so convincingly. A goal from Linssen is certainly a possibility.
