Our prediction for this KNVB Cup match:
There will be fireworks when NEC Nijmegen and Fortuna Sittard face each other in the KNVB Beker last 16. NEC sit in the 6th position in the Eerste Divisie standings, and, no doubt, the team’s main goal is to secure promotion to the Jupiler League. Rogier Meijer’s troops are tough to beat at home, but they face a difficult task in Thursday’s football match. Fortuna Sittard, on the other hand, recorded three wins in the previous four league fixtures.
Sjors Ultee’s troops aim to build on a 2-0 win over Zwolle, but beating NEC on the road is easier said than done. A close encounter is on the cards at Goffertstadion, and we believe that punters can find value in betting on draw. When the two teams met in the KNVB Beker two years ago Fortuna Sittard defeated Nijmegen 3-2, but we are tempted to put our money on draw this time out.
