Top Predictions and Bets for Fortuna Sittard vs Sparta Rotterdam

The first round 20 meeting of the Eredivisie is in the cards on Friday when Fortuna Sittard will defend its two-match unbeaten streak against a team that has been one of the biggest surprise stories this season, Sparta.

Over 2.5 Goals

The predictions here are pretty clear when we look at the h2h stats by both teams and compare them with the way they have been performing this season. Four of the last five matches they played ended with more than two goals scored. For the season, Fortuna had eleven over 2.5 goals matches including three in the last five, while Sparta had ten of them. The contrast is that the Rotterdam team was involved in only one of these games during the span of their last five games. One more reason why over 2.5 goals is a possibility revolves around the fact that Fortuna averages almost three goals per match overall while playing at home.

Draw

Strangely, it's been four years since the last time these teams played out a draw, since then Fortuna won twice, while Sparta took home that winning feeling on three occasions. But, before these five matches, they had a streak of three games with a draw. This season, Sparta played six draw games which is almost a third of all of their matches in Eredivisie, this includes three in their past five matches. Fortuna had four draw games this term.

Bookmakers have made their predictions concerning odds for this match:

Fortuna Sittard odds: 7/4 (2.75) – 36.4%

Draw odds: 9/4 (3.25) – 30.8%

Sparta Rotterdam odds: 7/5 (2.40) – 41.7%

The bookmakers are giving a small advantage to Sparta as the visiting team, most likely based on their better ranking. But, Fortuna has proven to be a formidable opponent to many higher-ranked teams, so bettors might want to look at different options for this particular game: Burak Yilmaz scoring Anytime gives you odds of 3/1 (3.00) – 33.3%, while predicting a BTTS option after the First Half gets you odds of 7/2 (4.50) – 22.2%.

Team News, Preview, and Predicted Lineups

Fortuna Sittard

Fortuna's focus has been maintaining their Eredivisie status, they worked hard for that goal, and they are on their way to getting it done. They achieved some important results this season but were left disappointed with occasional slip-ups on their home turf against teams that they are supposed to beat when playing before their fans. Teams like Emmen left Sittard with a 1-0 win. Burak Yilmaz has been a gift for Fortuna this season, a surprising transfer last summer he is leading the scoring charts for the team with seven goals. Fortuna doesn't have any injury issues for this match.

Predicted lineup: Pandur, Cox, Guth, Navarro, Pinto, Ferati, Bistrovic, Embalo, Ozyakup, Cordoba, Yilmaz.

Sparta Rotterdam

Sparta hasn't been defeated in the league since late October, and their unbeaten streak is keeping their hopes of advancing to some of the European competitions next season very much alive. They are playing with a positive mindset whether they are at home or away, and that makes it more difficult for their opponents to break their barriers. Sparta had nine away games this term, they won three of them with four draws, and only two losses. That stat puts them inside the top six of the league as a guest team. Koki Saito is the only player missing from the Rotterdam team.

Predicted lineup: Olij, Sambo, Vriends, Auassar, Micha Pinto, Verschueren, Kitolano, Mijnans, Namli, Lauritsen, van Crooij.

Player to Watch: Inigo Cordoba

There are not many Spanish players earning their salary in the Eredivisie, but Inigo Cordoba has been doing a good job of helping Fortuna achieve their goals this season. He has scored twice from the left-wing position, including the game-winner against Cambuur last week, and also recorded a couple of assists this term.
