Fortuna Sittard will welcome NEC to Fortuna Sittard Stadion for a matchday 8 fixture in Netherlands Eredivisie. The last meeting on 21st January 2021 ended in a NEC 3-2 win. Both sides have met seven times in the most recent seasons. Fortuna Sittard has won 1 match, and NEC triumphed in 5. Recent outings average 4.29 goals, while both teams score 86% of the time.
Fortuna Sittard's latest fixture against Vitesse ended in an away 1-1 draw. They were not spectacular, so this result seems fair. Fortuna Sittard set the tone early and scored in the 2nd minute.
NEC's previous game in the competition versus Feyenoord ended in an away 5-3 loss. NEC had plenty of time to pass around and make quality forward runs. However, the final result was not what they wish for before the game started. NEC was pretty good in both halves and scored in the 32nd, 44th and 74th minute.
Since the start of the season, Fortuna Sittard is more dominant at home. They have one wins out of 4 games on home soil. Although Fortuna Sittard is among the most solid home teams in the league, they are far from perfect. Their defence is not as good as expected with just 0% home clean sheets.
NEC has picked up 8 points from the previous six league games. It is quite intriguing that they prefer playing on the road. NEC has collected 1.40 points on average per away game, compared to 1.33 at home. To improve results, they have to be more compact in defence. NEC kept a clean sheet in just 20% of their visits.
It is hard to choose a favourite in this one. Both teams look evenly-matched and have their strengths. I am not willing to take a risk and prefer a double chance bet. My prediction is Draw or NEC.
Both sides are dangerous going forward. Fortuna Sittard has scored in 75% of home games. NEC is a decent match and has scored in all away games. My prediction is Both Teams to Score: Yes.
