Almere City vs Fortuna Sittard: Eredivisie 2023/24 Live Stream, Form Guide, Head to Head, Schedule, Fixture and Probable Lineups

Following divergent outcomes in their recent matches, Almere City and Fortuna Sittard meet in the 18th round of the 2023-24 Eredivisie season at the Yanmar Stadion on Saturday. Almere City, the hosts, experienced their initial loss in five games in their last appearance, whereas Fortuna Sittard secured their second victory in three matches.

Almere City’s hopes for a spot in the KNVB-Beker quarter-final were dashed in a 2-1 defeat against Almere City on Wednesday. Alex Pastoor’s team faced a challenging first half, conceding a double to Kaj Sierhuis before Kornelius Hansen pulled one back late in the game. In their previous match, De Zwarte Schapen secured a hard-fought 1-0 victory against FC Volendam, elevating them to 12th in the Eredivisie standings. They now prepare for a tough matchup against an opponent who has won the last four encounters between them. With only one win in their last five home matches, Almere City must improve their home form for a more successful second half of the season.

Fortuna’s recent Dutch Cup triumph marked their fourth win in six matches, but their focus now shifts to the league where they aim to end a two-match losing streak. Currently positioned 11th in the standings with 19 points from 17 games, Danny Buijs’s team is just one point away from the top half and two points from European qualification. Despite back-to-back league losses, Fortuna has shown strength away from home with victories in their last two away matches. As they approach the upcoming fixture, the visitors are determined to secure another positive result on the road.
