Utrecht vs Fortuna Sittard - Fortuna’s poor fortune on the road to continue
Dick Advocaat's men to unlock Eredivisie’s weakest defence
Utrecht vs Fortuna Sittard Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips
Struggling Fortuna Sittard’s away woes are likely to continue when they visit Utrecht at the Stadion Galgenwaard in Wednesday’s Eredivisie clash. Utrecht have the firepower to pull off a big win and I am tipping them in the -1 handicap market at 1.95.
FC Utrecht Form & Team News
Utrecht are five matches unbeaten at home despite losing 2-0 away to Emmen in their last Eredivisie match. They are a difficult team to stop once they get going and three of their last four victories have been by four goals.
The Eredivisie’s seventh-placed side thrashed Heracles Almelo 5-1, NAC Breda 4-0 and VVV-Venlo 6-2 since the beginning of March as well as beating Feyenoord 3-2.
Simon Gustafson has been Utrecht’s most prolific Eredivisie goalscorer and has eight goals and five assists to his name in 2018/19. Dick Advocaat’s men are anything but a one-trick pony however and their 54 league goals have been shared between 16 players.
Utrecht can be backed for the win at 1.39 but their penchant for big victories makes them a good value pick in the -1 handicap market at 1.95.
Fortuna Sittard Form & Team News
Fortuna Sittard edged NAC Breda 2-1 at home in their last Eredivisie match but have lost eight consecutive away fixtures in all competitions. This run has seen Rene Eijer’s men go down 6-0 to Heracles, 5-0 to PSV and PEC Zwolle, 5-1 to De Graafschap and 4-0 to Ajax.
A mid-season cruciate ligament rupture to captain and centre-back Wessel Dammers was the catalyst to Fortuna’s defence imploding. They have yet to recover although Dammers has not played an Eredivisie match since December.
Wednesday’s visitors are paying big odds of 7.50 for the win if you think this is the fixture in which their fortunes will finally change. A draw at 5.25 also offers sizeable returns.
Utrecht vs Fortuna Sittard Head to Head
Utrecht are 4-1 with two draws in seven Eredivisie matches against Fortuna Sittard dating back to 1999/2000. September’s reverse league fixture was a 1-1 draw but home advantage will work in Utrecht’s favour this time.
Utrecht have won all three home matches against Fortuna Sittard during this timespan including a 3-0 drubbing last time out.
Utrecht vs Fortuna Sittard Match Up
Utrecht’s Simon Gustafson (8 goals, 5 assists) and Gyrano Kerk (6 goals, 7 assists) have each been directly involved in 13 goals.
They have a perfect opportunity to add more against a Fortuna Sittard defence which has leaked more goals (71) than any other team in the division. 36 of those have come in Fortuna’s last eight away matches.
Utrecht vs Fortuna Sittard Key Statistics
- Utrecht have covered the -3 handicap in 3 of their last 4 victories (Eredivisie).
- Utrecht won their last home match against Fortuna Sittard 3-0 (Eredivisie).
- Fortuna Sittard have lost their last 8 away matches (all competitions).
- Fortuna Sittard have lost 7 of their last 8 away matches by 2+ goals (all competitions).
- Fortuna Sittard have conceded 36 goals in their last 8 away matches (all competitions).
Fortuna Sittard’s away day blues and dismal defensive record mean Utrecht are the logical pick for a comfortable victory. I am backing Dick Advocaat’s men in the -1 handicap market at 1.95.
