The race to get from the bottom of the Eredivisie table gets real this weekend when Fortuna Sittard welcome Heerenveen. The match is scheduled for Saturday at 8:45 pm.
In the past two rounds of Dutch top-flight action, both Fortuna Sittard and Heerenveen have struggled to get the results they would have wanted. Both will be desperate to record a positive result when they lock horns in the 21st Round of Eredivisie on Saturday at Fortuna Sittard Stadion.
Sittard currently sits in 14th place with 13 points. They have won only one game this year, and they are undoubtedly the worst team to play in this season’s Eredivisie.
Fortuna Sittard has not won in four straight league games and has struggled to keep opponents from scoring. They have the worst defensive side of this Eredivisie season.
Meanwhile, Heerenveen looks to have a slightly better shape than their rivals, considering the Dutch Eredivisie’s recent form. They sit in tenth place with 25 points.
HJKC Heerenveen will enter this tie after having lost three consecutive games. They are currently 7 points away from the safety zone and hoping for a win to alleviate their slump.
Sittard has won just twice at home since August last year. A good performance against visitors could bring about a change in their home run. They are winless in the past four subsequent Eredivisie home affairs.
