Two teams, Fortuna Sittard and Heracles, propping up the table will be looking to get out of the bottom when they play each other in the Dutch Eredivisie on Sunday evening.
Call it a coincidence, but both Fortuna and Heracles lost their season-opener by the same scoreline of 4-0, with AZ Alkmaar running over Sittard, while their opponents were humbled at home by Heerenveen.
There was no positive for these two teams to take from their opening fixture, with the signs indicating that this could well be a very long season.
The Eredivisie match will be played between Fortuna Sittard and Heracles at Yuexiushan Stadium, in Guangzhou, China. The ground has a capacity of 18,000.
The game will start at 03:45 PM (IST), on Sunday, August 11.

Captain and Vice-Captain Selection:
Mark Diemers: Though the 25-year-old had a poor game by his own standards, Fortuna are aware that he is one of the best players in this team. The least is expected of him is that he emulates the performance of the last season.
Last season stats:
Silvester van der Water: The 22-year-old winger may not be known for scoring goals, but he can be quite effective if we consider his passing range. He is worth taking in your Dream11 Fantasy team.
Rasmus Karjalainen: Fortuna’s Number-7 is a good player but needs support upfront to get the best out of his game.
Last season stats:
FTS vs HRA Dream11 potential winner:
Heracles should at least get a draw here.
