Fortuna Sittard vs FC Utrecht – Betting Analysis
Sjors Ultee, the manager of Fortuna Sittard, will be appreciative that there are no fitness concerns to speak of going into this game thanks to a completely injury-free group available. Henk Fräser, the manager of FC Utrecht, must select a team with a constrained roster.
The following players are not eligible for selection: Arthur Zagre (ankle injury), Django Warmerdam (unknown injury), Mike van der Hoorn, Tommy St. Jago, Sander van de Streek, Bart Ramselaar, and Ramon Hendriks (cruciate ligament rupture).
In our opinion, FC Utrecht ought to be able to generate a lot of opportunities and successful attempts on goal. Though we do believe it’s likely they’ll be able to score here, Fortuna Sittard will find it difficult to find success in front of goal at the other end. Therefore, we predict that FC Utrecht will win by a comfortable score of 1-3.
