NEC Nijmegen vs Fortuna Sittard Prediction
Fortuna haven’t won against NEC when they’ve played them away from home in the last 4 league games. But they remain undefeated in their last 2 league matches played away from home.
Meanwhile, NEC Nijmegen remain unbeaten in the league by Fortuna in their previous 7 matches. But they have the poorest home wins this season, winning only thrice from the 16 games played at Goffertstadion.
Since the hosts are poor at home and the visitors remain meagre on road, both these sides are equally weak. But we feel that a narrow win for NEC this up for cards this Sunday.
