  • Competition: Eredivisie
  • Date: 25th January 2023
  • Kickoff: 19:00 UTC / 20:00 CET
  • Venue: Fortuna Sittard Stadion

Seventh-placed Heerenveen will travel to Fortuna Sittard this Wednesday as they aim to retain their qualification playoff spot in the Eredivisie. Fortuna have managed to win only four games since August, but have scored two more goals in the process than Heerenveen making them one of the better-attacking teams in the Eredivisie. Heerenveen on the other hand have not lost in 13 games this season on 17 occasions, making them one of the top seven sides in the country. More importantly, despite playing away from home, Heerenveen will come into this game as favourites due to their fantastic record of just one loss away from home in the Eredivisie since August. While Fortuna still reels with their record of not winning five of the seven games at this venue.

Fortuna Sittard vs Heerenveen Betting Pick #1: Heerenveen to win

Heerenveen come into this game as one of the top four sides of the competition when it comes to away form. It is simply not possible that Fortuna win all three points against them with the current four game winless form that the home side is concurring. In fact, with three wins from the last five meetings between the two sides too, we believe that the visitors will take all three points from this one.

Pick #2: BTTS + Over 2.5

There is no doubt that, even if we are betting on a Heerenveen win, Fortuna Sittard have always given a tough fight to their top-half competitors. Seven of the last nine meetings have seen both sides scoring and Heerenveen have conceded seven goals in their last four away games too, winning just once in the process. We believe that this will be a 2-1 win for the away side with both sides scoring.

Fortuna Sittard Team News

Fortuna have no injury spells going on for any of their personnel. The only unavailability for this Wednesday's clash with Heerenveen will be the suspended Dogan Erdogan. The Turkish midfielder (central) was shown a red card recently, which rules him out of this game. Erdogan has played 15 games for Fortuna this season, making him one of the mainstays of the team, so considerably this is a decently big loss for the hosts.

Players to watch: Burak Yilmaz (6 goals and 1 assist), George Cox (15 chances created this season), Rodrigo Guth (1.5 interceptions per 90 mins)

Heerenveen Team News

Heerenveen also have just one absentee like Fortuna ahead of their clash on Wednesday. Centre-back Sven van Beek suffered an Achilles Tendon injury earlier this month and will not be back in training before mid-March for sure. One of the best-rated players in the visitors' camp in 2022-23, Van Beek's presence in the backline will be missed and it adds even more to their failure to keep clean sheets lately.

Players to watch: Amin Sarr (5 goals and 4 assists), Mats Kohlert (29 chances created this season), Rami Kaib (2.0 interceptions per 90 mins)
