Match Preview

This will be the first top-flight meeting between the clubs since 1991/92. Back then, Den Haag won both fixtures 1-0, but this match could easily see Sittard end a long winless run against Den Haag.
In five matches between the sides this century, Sittard are winless against Den Haag (D3, L2). Being on the unfavourable end of such a record is psychologically difficult, but given that Den Haag have already lost to a newly-promoted side this season, Sittard know that this is a great opportunity to start climbing the table.
Ahead of this one, Den Haag are one of only three clubs to lose both of their opening games. Defeat to Sittard, though a dreadful prospect, would not be the end of all hope. Den Haag lost their first three league matches last term, yet finished in a European play-off spot.
The all time H2H record makes for a ridiculously even split, with Den Haag’s record after 39 meetings at: W14, D10, L15. ‘The Storks’ have scored 56, whilst Sittard have put 55 past their matchday three opponents.
Players to watch: Nasser El Khayati is likely to be Den Haag’s most skilful player here. He scored 11 goals in 34 games from the heart of midfield in 2017/18.
With one goal and one assist, Jorrit Smeets has been directly involved in both of Fortuna Sittard’s Eredivisie goals so far this season.
Stat attack: Den Haag have conceded two or more goals in each of their last five Eredivisie matches, while also conceding first in their last four competitive matches.
Eight out of Sittard’s last ten matches have produced under 2.5 goals in total.
By contrast, eight of Den Haag’s last nine Eredivisie matches have produced over 2.5 goals.
