General information about Groningen vs Fortuna Sittard

Searching for a defense

Defending is the key for Groningen. In past seasons they were one of the teams that had most ‘under' games, but this season something has changed in the way this team is defending. They allow almost two goals per game which show in their rankings because they are unable to score as many goals as they would have wanted. Groningen's home record is not that bad considering how their season is progressing. Their most impressive win was against PSV with the score 4-2, but those were rare occasions when they fulfilled their agenda, or rather the way they wanted to play. The hosts will have some trouble in getting the team ready, they have plenty of injury concerns, and it will be interesting for manager Frank Wormuth to select the team that will face Fortuna. One would assume he will make sure that the defense is fully stacked, and try to have some balance going forward.

Groningen's probable 11: Leeuwenburgh, Dankerlui, Kasanwirjo, te Wierik, Sverko, Dybvik Maatta, Valente, Pelupessy, Duarte, Pepi, Kruger.

Fortuna is facing similar problems to its rivals this week. Even though they don't have injury issues, their concern is how they perform away from home. They only won once when playing as visitors, against Vitesse a few weeks ago. They were disappointed with last week's loss to lowly Emmen, at home for that matter, and now they have to get something from their visit to Groningen. Experienced Turkish forward Burak Yilmaz is who they trust the most to score goals, he is their top scorer with four goals. The Sittard team has an issue with creating opportunities, and that is the main reason why they are struggling to get goals regularly.

Fortuna Sittard's probable 11: Pandur, Cox, Guth, Navarro, Pinto, Ozyakup, Erdogan, Cordoba, Senutjens, Embalo, Gladon.

Team News:

Groningen: Radinio Balker, Paulos Abraham, Tomas Suslov, Nordin Musampa, Michael Verrips, and Liam Van Gelderen are injured.
