Fortuna Sittard form and stats

The story so far in the Eredivisie for Fortuna Sittard, who have the most conceded goals (28) in Eredivisie, at their home stadium (Fortuna Sittard Stadion) is 2 wins, 1 draw and 3 defeats. Fortuna has three losses from their three previous games and the tension is increasing in the dressing room for both the manager S. Ultee and the players.

Fortuna are hoping to put things right at home after a defeat in their previous match, the score 1-3 away versus Heracles. The attacking player Zian Flemming won the honour of being "man of the match" for Fortuna with a rating of 8.2/10. Flemming scored one goal, hit the woodwork once, hit three key passes and dribled past the opponent 4 of 7 times.

Before that game, the home loss against PSV with the scoreline 1-4.

Fortuna Sittard are certainly not overdoing their scoring at home in league matches, having created 7 goals in 6 games. Neutralizing the opposition is a challenge, Fortuna Sittard having conceded 15 goals here at Fortuna Sittard Stadion so far.

FC Groningen form and stats

FC Groningen have only collected 7 points from their away games in the Eredivisie, after 2-1-4 (7 played).

It's the second away game in a row for Groningen, but there's smiles all around after the 1-0 victory versus Go Ahead Eagles (placed 11th) in the Eredivisie last time out. Wessel Dammers, who plays in defense, got the "man of the match" on his team with the rating 8.14. Dammers served one assist, hit two key passes and won 8 of 12 duels.

A draw for Groningen before that, at their own venue hosting RKC Waalwijk (1-1).

Scoring goals is the main ingredient in creating success in football, and not only at home. So far FC Groningen have scored 7 goals in 7 league games away. The Groningen manager D. Buijs has some worries about the defense as 15 goals have been conceded in these travels.
