With both of last season’s finalists Ajax and PSV Eindhoven out of the competitions, and Feyenoord facing AZ Alkmaar this week, the cup is wide open heading into the last eight.

While currently competing in the Eerste Divisie, Groningen can take confidence from the fact that they are one of the most in-form sides in Holland at present.

Strong league form has complemented Groningen’s run in the cup, as all three round so far have seen them win away from home, including against Eerste Divisie leaders Willem II and top-flight side Excelsior.

Groningen now have an excellent opportunity to reach just a third semi-final in almost four decades, while there will be faint belief they could repeat the feat of winning the competition as they did in 2015.

Sittard cannot match Groningen’s achievements in this competition in recent times, as their last triumph came in 1964, and they have only progressed past the quarter-finals once in 40 years.

Like Groningen, Danny Buijs’ side have come through three rounds, winning each away from home, with Kaj Sierhuis proving crucial with three goals in their previous two cup ties.

That form has been present on the league front as well, as Sittard are challengind for a spot in the Europa Conference League playoffs, as relegation fears were put to bed a long time ago.

Groningen vs. Fortuna Sittard Head to head

In the 19 previous meetings between these two teams, Groningen have claimed 11 victories while Sittard have won five, and they have drawn in three. Sittard have scored 17 goals and conceded 32 in the process.

Groningen Team News

Groningen allowed striker Kevin van Veen to return to Scottish football late in the January window, so will look to youngster Romano Postema for inspiration in attack.

With a full fit squad at manager Dick Lukkien’s disposal, that could see Rui Mendes remain on the bench as he waits for a first start since moving from Emmen.

Fortuna Sittard Team News

Sittard’s only absentee in the past few weeks is available again as Deroy Duarte has returned from the AFCON after Cape Verde’s elimination.

Alen Halilovic is the man in form after two goals against Heerenveen, and he is set to start alongside Justin Lonwijk in midfield after he was signed to replace the outgoing Tijjani Noslin last month.
