Feyenoord vs Fortuna SittardDutch Eredivisie, KO: 11:15 Apr 4, 2021, De Kuip
Feyenoord will be looking to bounce back from a mini slump when they host Fortuna Sittard in a Dutch Eredivisie clash at De Kuip. The hosts need to turn a string of recent draws into wins and should have too much for Fortuna Sittard, who have looked out of sorts lately.
Feyenoord are coming off a disappointing 1-1 draw against troubled FC Emmen in their previous Eredivisie fixture. They failed to build on Orkun Kokcu's first half opener and conceded the equaliser 11 minutes from time.
It was the second straight draw for Dick Advocaat's men who also held title chasers PSV 1-1 in their previous fixture. They currently occupy one of the Europa League playoff spots, seven points behind second place PSV.
Feyenoord will be banking on their recent form at home where they have claimed three wins in their last four matches. They often score most of their goals at home and can count a 5-0 victory over Willem II and a 3-1 triumph against PSV among their results in that run.
Fortuna Sittard travel to Dr Kuip off the back of a 1-0 defeat against Utrecht in their previous Eredivisie outing. They struggled to create enough goalscoring opportunities and finished with just a single attempt on target.
Sjors Ultee’s men have slipped into the bottom half of the table following a run of three defeats in their last four matches. All three defeats have come against teams ranked above them on the table, including a 3-1 loss to PSV.
