Fortuna Sittard lost 2-1 to Vitesse at home. Due to the defeat – and Sparta’s victory over PEC Zwolle – Fortuna drops to sixteenth place, a place that obliges you to play play-offs for self-preservation.
Fortuna started the home game with Vitesse fairly poorly. Deroy Duarte, Mats Seuntjes and club top scorer Zian Flemming were suspended. Defender Roel Janssen was absent due to an injury.
