Excelsior vs Sittard – Prediction, and Match Preview

Excelsior vs Sittard – After the scoreless draw at Heerenveen last weekend, Excelsior moved into the safe zone. They are currently in the playoff spot for relegation one point ahead of FC Emmen.

On Sunday afternoon, Marinus Dijkhuizen’s squad will welcome Fortuna Sittard, a demotivated team from the bottom half of the standings, in an effort to maintain their elite-class status.

The home win prediction has a lot to recommend it. In particular, Excelsior will approach this in considerably better shape.

They put up a strong performance away to Conference League playoff contenders Heerenveen last weekend, easily outplaying them for the whole 90 minutes of play at the Abe Lenstra Stadion.

Going forward, Excelsior has only suffered one defeat in the previous four league games played in front of their own supporters, and that loss came at the hands of champions Feyenoord.

Fortuna Sittard, on the other hand, had dropped four of its previous five league games. However, they did put in marginally stronger performances in their most recent two games against Vitesse (a 2-0 home victory) and PSV Eindhoven (a close 2-1 loss at Philips Stadion).

However, the team managed by Spanish manager Julio Velazquez lost four straight away games, each time giving up at least two goals.

FC Emmen vs Feyenoord – Betting Analysis

Eight times Fortuna Sittard has played at Van Donge & De Roo Stadion, they have only achieved six losses, two draws, and four goals. Midway through last September, Fortuna did defeat Excelsior 1-0 in the first half of the season.

In the previous four meetings between the two teams, three of which took place at the Fortuna Sittard Stadion, Excelsior has never prevailed.

There is strong evidence for a home victory in this match, thus we will support Excelsior at the 1.90 odds. The hosts will begin the tie in stronger shape, need points to ensure their elite-class survival, and have historically dominated this clash in games played in Rotterdam.

What are the best odds for this match?

Checking the betting prices for this game on the WDW market, a win for Excelsior can be had for 1.94, betting on the draw is 3.9, and staking on the win for Fortuna Sittard comes in at 3.6. These are the best of the bets that can be secured as of now.
