RKC Waalwijk vs Fortuna Sittard Best Bets and Predictions

This match will feature a duel between two teams that are right in the middle of the rankings trying to put themselves in a position to gain some points and move toward the European placement battle.

Draw

These are the teams that have had similar success this season, RKC is ranked ninth in the Eredivisie rankings while Fortuna is right below them at the tenth spot. The visiting team is coming into this match on a four-game unbeaten run and with a possible win they could overpass RKC and move closer to the coveted top-seven ranking even though there is a point difference at hand. The last time the match RKC Waalwijk vs Fortuna Sittard was played, in the first game of the current season, the result was a scoreless draw. Last season's one game also ended with a draw, but that match was a much more entertaining affair with both teams scoring a couple of goals. In their last five games, RKC had two draws while Fortuna played out only one, and for the season the home team played eight draw games. Fortuna doesn't have that high of a number, they are at five. It is worth noting that RKC is undefeated in their last four matches at their stadium winning three of those games while Fortuna had victories in their last two away matches.

Both Teams to Score – Yes

The Focus of the second RKC Waalwijk vs Fortuna Sittard prediction is BTTS. Only one out of the last seven matches between these teams ended without one club scoring a goal. As a matter of a fact, the first game of the current season which ended without any goals brought to the end a streak of six consecutive matches between these sides that had plenty of goals. During the last six matches in the league, Fortuna had three BTTS games, the same number as RKC so predicting another game that should cover both clubs' scoring seems like a good deal.

RKC Waalwijk vs Fortuna Sittard Lineups, Team News, and Preview

RKC Waalwijk

RKC lost to Ajax on Sunday, and it was a game that had them in the lead after the first half before the Amsterdam team strike back and eventually won the game late in the second half. That was Waalwijk's first defeat after four matches. They are in the middle of another good season where they are safe in the middle of the table not thinking about the worst-case scenario of them dropping down the league ranks. Mika Biereth is out with an injury.

Probable lineup: Vaessen, Lelieveld, Gaari, Adewoye, Van den Buijs, Lutonda, Bel Hassani, Anita, Clement, Seuntjens, Lobete.

Fortuna Sittard

Similarly to their opponents, Fortuna had a decent season thus far with some impressive results. With three wins in their last four games they have put themselves in a situation to challenge seventh-placed Utrecht for a European placement, and they need to continue that positive run of form to make those chances realistic. Ximo Navarro is doubtful about a trip to Waalwijk.

Probable lineup: Pandur, Erdogan, Guth, Siovas, Vita, Bistrovic, Ferati, Cordoba, Ozyakup, Embalo, Yilmaz.
