SITTARD VS BREDA (Preview, Prediction & Betting Tips) / 21.04.2019

Having dragged themselves five points clear of the bottom three following the previous round, Sittard can all but secure their top-flight status with victory over rock-bottom Breda. With an average of 1.53 points per home match this season the hosts should feel confident, especially as Breda average a league-low 0.33 on their travels.
The key to Sittard’s survival will be their record here against teams ranked below them. The hosts have won by an aggregate scoreline of 10-3 across three home league matches against sides below them ahead of the round – winning each game with both teams scoring.
Furthermore, Sittard have kept a first-half clean sheet in two thirds of their Eredivisie home matches this season (HT: W7, D5, L3), with the hosts going on to win five of the games in which they led at the break. Comparably worse, on the road Breda have led at half-time just once all league season, and failed to score a first-half goal in 11 of their 15 such matches.
Breda boss Ruud Brood has won his last three managerial clashes with Sittard, witnessing ten goals in his favour. However the fact remains that away from home, Breda have the Eredivisie’s worst goalscoring record (0.6 per match average) and the second-weakest defence (2.67 conceded).
Players to watch: American striker Andrija Novakovich has scored three goals across his last five Sittard starts, each coming in the first half. Meanwhile fellow countryman Erik Palmer-Brown scored his first Eredivisie goal to earn Breda a draw last time out.
Stat attack: There’s been a red card in four of Sittard’s last five matches, three of which went to Sittard.
Lost your head? Sittard have also had a man sent off in two of the last four H2Hs.
Breda have failed to score in six of their last eight Eredivisie away matches.
