After beginning the month with back-to-back victories in the Bundesliga, Sunday’s Football Bet of the Day sees me head to the Eredivisie, and there is one fixture in particular that appeals to me for goals.

⚽️ Fortuna Sittard vs Excelsior

🇳🇱 Eredivisie

⏰ Sunday 3rd March, 15:30

12th-placed Fortuna Sittard welcome 15th-placed Excelsior to the Fortuna Sittard Stadion on Sunday afternoon in the Eredivisie in a fixture that appeals to me for goals.

Danny Buijs’ hosts have scored 23 goals across their opening 23 matches in the Eredivisie this term, with 17 (74%) of them coming on home soil. Fortuna have made the net bulge in 7/11 (64%) of their league outings on home turf – scoring on multiple occasions in five (45%) of them – and will look to trouble an Excelsior defence that has shipped two or more goals in 9/11 (82%) of their road trips, and even three or more in six (55%) of them.

Marinus Dijkhuizen’s visitors have scored 36 goals across their opening 23 contests in the Eredivisie this campaign, with 19 (53%) of them coming on their travels. The Kralingers have made the net bulge in 10/11 (91%) of their road trips in the Eredivisie – scoring on multiple occasions in six (55%) of them – and will look to trouble a Fortuna defence that has recorded just three clean sheets at home in the Eredivisie this season, shipping multiple goals in each of their last three.

Bet of the Day

Excelsior’s opening 11 Eredivisie fixtures on their travels this campaign are averaging an eye-catching 4.09 goals per game, with Over 2.5 Goals paying out in 10 (91%) of them – and given the same has landed in 7/11 (64%) of Fortuna’s Eredivisie contests on home soil – I’m happy to have a punt on there being a minimum of three strikes between these two sides on Sunday afternoon.

  • Over 2.5 Asian Goal Line
  • Pays 7/8 (Bet365)
