Excelsior - Fortuna Sittard betting tips and odds

Kickoff starts at 13:30 on 21/05/2023 played @ Van Donge & De Roo Stadion

By pricing a home win at around 1.95, the bookies made it clear that Excelsior are the favourites. Overall, though, the difference between the teams is not big, and the match can end either way.

The matchup this Sunday is rather one-sided, with Fortuna Sittard seen as the clear underdogs. Most bookmakers online have priced their victory at 3.60, which is enough to doubt such an outcome will happen.

The host are coming off from a morale-boosting SC Heerenveen draw. Why morale-boosting? Because Excelsior were given close to zero per cent chances of getting anything from their last trip. However, a draw at halftime and the end (SC Heerenveen) make for a very good result overall.

Previously in the Eredivisie, Fortuna Sittard faced off against to PSV – an utterly one-sided matchup, with few hopes for Fortuna Sittard to pull off an away win. They lost, as expected, but held their ground for longer than most believed they would. After all, records show a tie at half-time, and the goal difference was quite narrow.

Only 1 or fewer goals were scored during the course of Excelsior’s previous two away games. An Under marker might be worth considering here.

Fortuna Sittard are performing rather sub-par whenever they play away. For instance, they have more than 5 conceded goals spread over their most recent 3 away games.

Though the odds are clearly in the hosts’ favour, the head-to-head history for this Eredivisie clash tells a different story. Excelsior lost the last time these two teams met on the pitch, so an upset is definitely possible.

The hosts went through a slew of unfortunate injuries recently, rendering some of their players unavailable for the match this Sunday. Nathangelo Markelo, Jacky Donkor, Adrian Fein, Vicente Besuijen will not be playing, though the team is still considered likely to win.

Despite being seen as underdogs by most online bookmakers, the visiting team will be able to give their all this Sunday. They have no reported injuries or suspensions going in, so at least they’ll be able to rely on their best players and strategies.

An Under 3.5 Goals bet is an interesting choice for this match. It’s quite safe as you might expect, but the 1 odds offer more in the way of betting value than you would think.
