All of our predictions, stats and the user poll for FC Zwolle v Fortuna Sittard are shown below - plus the latest match odds.
FC Zwolle will be hoping for a better result after the 1-0 Eredivisie loss in their previous game against Feyenoord.
Luis Sinisterra (64') was the scorer for Feyenoord.
FC Zwolle have found it difficult to unlock defences of late. Their sum of goals equals just 3 against opposing sides during the course of their previous six matches. In those meetings, Blauwvingers have also seen the tally of goals against them come to 8. That sort of pattern won’t necessarily follow through into this game, of course.
Pre-game facts show that FC Zwolle:
- have not been beaten in the league by Fortuna Sittard in their last 4 games.
- haven't won against Fortuna Sittard in their last 2 league games.
- are without a home win in the past 2 league games.
Following on from a losing effort in their last game against Sparta Rotterdam in Eredivisie competition, Fortuna Sittard and their fans will hope to get a better result this time.
Lennart Thy (57') scored for Sparta Rotterdam.
The numbers tell their own story, and Fortuna Sittard have been scored against in 6 of their last 6 matches, with opponents netting 7 goals in total. In defence, Sittard have clearly had some problems.
Their past results show that Fortuna Sittard:
- have left without a victory over FC Zwolle in away games against them for the last 6 league matches. They really have not been travelling well at all.
- are undefeated in their previous 3 league matches away from home.
