Top Bets and Predictions for Fortuna Sittard vs Groningen

Fortuna Sittard is the favorite against the relegation strugglers, however, the visiting team will have more pressure to deliver and might be able to pull through an important result.

Over 2.5 Goals

Fortuna has played five straight games with more than two goals scored, and for the season they are at 16 over 2.5 goals matches. Groningen looked in a different direction with 14 games that featured at least three goals in the back of the net but with four out last five that didn't have plenty of goals on the record. Looking at the h2h stat for Fortuna Sittard vs Groningen prediction, three out of their last five matches ended crossing the line, and more importantly, the last couple of times they played in Sittard, over 2.5 goals were covered.

Draw

The home team is somewhat secure when it comes to their Eredivisie status, but their opponent is far from that feeling. Groningen looks like a sure candidate for relegation, and that is the sentiment for most of the season. The last time these teams drew their match was in 2018, or rather it happened eight matches ago, so for this Fortuna Sittard vs Groningen matchup, the draw doesn't come easy. Both teams had five split games this season, but only one in their last five league encounters. The biggest problem for the visiting team is their away record which stands at only one win, two draws, and ten losses. Fortuna is not overly impressive at home either getting only three wins with the same number of split games, and seven defeats.

Player to Watch: Burak Yilmaz
