Gaming has been resumed in most European leagues. Some board designers have come up with a very special treat. In Holland, for example, the Eredivisie started last weekend in the second half and now follows directly the quarter-finals in the Dutch Cup, the KNVB Beker. For the withdrawal symptoms of the Dutch fans should be satisfied for now but for now. We look at the meeting between Feyenoord Rotterdam and Fortuna Sittard. The big bang has not given the draw, but this is likely to change in the semifinals.
Football Betting Tips Feyenoord Rotterdam vs Fortuna Sittard
Feyenoord Rotterdam is the clear favourite against Fortuna Sittard, not just in odds. However, also the Elf of Giovanni van Bronckhorst as well as the opponent made a false start to the second half. Both teams are still looking for momentum in calendar year 2019. On Wednesday, however, at least one of them will return to success. We do not have to be great prophets when the game between Feyenoord Rotterdam and Fortuna Sittard is headed for a home victory. After both are not really in shape, we do not necessarily expect a football party. Maybe that’s why there are not many goals in this duel. The audience will experience at least one, because there must be a winner who makes the leap into the semi-finals, even if this only falls on penalties. However, we tend to suggest that Feyenoord should prevail in the regular season, although in Holland, the cup has its own laws.
Feyenoord Rotterdam – Statistics & Current Form
Giovanni van Bronckhorst is currently facing harsh criticism in Rotterdam. In the Eredivisie it is already clear after the first round that Feyenoord has no chance on the title. Ajax Amsterdam and PSV Eindhoven are already 13 and eleven points away. This has been presented quite differently this season. Third place is now the last remaining goal in the league. After all, Rotterdam is currently on this rank. At least to end the season still positive, now almost the title in the Dutch Cup is required. At least Feyenoord Rotterdam should, against the odds, secure the ticket to the semi-finals against Fortuna Sittard. After all, Rotterdam is the reigning titleholder in this competition. Nevertheless, it will be necessary to see how much Giovanni van Bronckhorst and his kickers are investing in the trophy this week, as the weekend’s classic against Ajax Amsterdam is on the program. Due to the situation in the table, however, the quarterfinals in the KNVB Beker should have priority.
Feyenoord set the back-round start last Saturday in a 1-3 defeat in Zwolle. Funk football was thrown to Giovanni van Bronckhorst. After half an hour Zwolle took the lead, but old master Robin van Persie was able to compensate immediately. In the second section, the home side drew 3-1 of them, but from a final offensive was to detect anything. In terms of position, the coach even changed a defender for a defender in the final minutes. A signal to catch up certainly looks different. Now it has to go one round in the cup. With a loss on Wednesday in the baggage against leaders Ajax, could be a heavy mortgage and possibly bring a total false start to 2019 with it. Keeper Justin Bijlow will miss Rotterdam for a foot injury. But that should not be a problem, because with Kenneth Vermeer is an experienced man as a replacement available.
Expected formation of Feyenoord Rotterdam:
Vermeer – Verdonk, van der Heijden, van Beek, St. Juste – Clasie, Vilhena – Van Persie, Larsson, Berghuis – Jörgensen – Coach: van Bronckhorst

Fortuna Sittard – Statistics & Current Form
As a climber, it may be for Fortuna Sittard only the goal to reach the league in the Eredivisie. At the moment, the team of Rene Eijer is on a very good way. After 18 games Fortuna is in eleventh place. In safety you should not weigh yourself, because up to the relegation places the lead is only four points.
Nevertheless, there was basically great optimism for the Limburgers until the last weekend. However, the preparation was not very successful. Nevertheless, they were full of anticipation for the second half of the season and wanted to build on the results that were obtained before Christmas, when they remained unbeaten in three competitive games. Wish and reality gaped wide apart at Fortuna Sittard last weekend. The first competitive game of the new calendar year, the Limburger have namely set in the sand. At the bottom of De Graafschap Sittard conceded a very bitter 1: 5 defeat.
This bankruptcy could also have repercussions on the rest of the season, as captain Wessel Dammers, who is usually a guarantee of defensive stability, has injured so badly that he will probably fail for a year after his knee is basically complete is over. Already at break Sittard was 0: 3 behind. When Ahmed El Messaoudi was able to shorten to 1: 3, once again sprouted hope, but in the end was a bitter defeat at bottom of the table to book. Rene Eijer was suitably served and believes that his players apparently took one day off without his permission. Now Rene Eijer hopes that his players will live up to his name and show them in Rotterdam, even if such a day can not be shaken off their clothes. Absence will be the Limburgern on Wednesday, the two injured player on the knee Wessel Dammers and Gavin Vlijter. Otherwise, all actors should be available.

Coselev – Mica Pinto, Heerings, Ninaj, Ciranni – Rodriguez, El Messaoudi, Hutten, Smeets – Stokkers, Novakovich – Coach: Eijer
