Fortuna Sittard vs PSV prediction, preview, team news and more

Fortuna Sitard will host PSV Eindhoven in an Eredivisie matchday 12 fixture on Sunday.

The home side come into the game on the back of a 4-3 defeat away to Go Ahead Eagles last weekend. Joris Kramer scored the match-winning goal in the 89th minute to help his side edge the seven-goal thriller.

That victory helped them hold on to second spot in the league, with 24 points garnered from 11 matches. They are now two points behind table-toppers Ajax Amsterdam while Sittard sit in the relegation zone on nine points.
