Match Preview and Predictions

  • Sparta Rotterdam need much-improved form to escape a congested bottom half. They lie there after three defeats in four outings, of which two saw them lose the second half 1-0 via a goal beyond the 87th minute. Yet, with little for Sparta to lose right now, it is worth noting that nine (60%) of their 15 Eredivisie games won/lost have been settled by a 2+ goal margin.
  • Also alarming for Sparta is the fact that their only home victories this term have come against current bottom-three opposition. Despite all of that, Sparta can boast a 78.57% unbeaten rate across their last 14 home league games entered as favourites (W8, D3, L3).
  • Twente have now won just one of their last five league games (W1, D1, L3) after being shocked at home by Venlo (1-0). They must win here if they are to keep a comfortable margin in their play-off place, and reassuringly for Twente, only three sides had picked up more away points than them ahead of the round (W5, D2, L1).
  • In addition, Twente have scored the opening goal in each of their eight road trips so far, and poached 2+ goals in each of their last five. On a sobering note, eight of their ten conceded away goals have come after HT, though they’ve only failed to win one of six away league games in which they’ve boasted a HT lead (W5, D1).
  • Players to watch: Four of Sparta top-scorer Lennart Thy’s last five league goals have been his side’s opener on the day, three of which came before HT. Meanwhile, Twente top-scorer Danilo (11 goals) looks to end his longest goal drought since joining the club, with six of those 11 strikes coming away from home.
  • Hot stat: Twente manager Ron Jans has not drawn across his last seven H2Hs with opposite number, Henk Fraser (W4, L3).
