FC Dordrecht vs Sparta Rotterdam
Netherlands – Eerste Divisie
Date: Friday, 15th February 2019
Kick-off at 19.00 UK/ 20.00 CET
Venue: DN Bouw Stadion (Dordrecht).
Their high position in the league table notwithstanding, the Castle Lords have failed in playing to their true potential in the recent match-days. They have had struggles once in a while from the beginning of the season itself and were riding on defense heroics. But that well has run dry now. As they visit the low-lying Schapenkoppen, the fans will wish for a favorable ending. But it might be wishing too much, as games against this team have been nothing but cut-throat fights in the past.
Scott Calderwood’s men can never be accused of throwing in the towel, even when the odds were massively stacked against them. They have always fought valiantly, and it has always been spectacles to watch. It’s really no wonder, that the lack of results has not dented the flow of fans to watch their games.
The visitors should really be worried about the fighting spirit of the Sheepheads.

FC Dordrecht vs Sparta Rotterdam Prediction
It has been a battle every time these two met. The current positions of either cannot be relied upon to paint a clear picture of the outcome of the game. It’s anyone’s game as of now. But one thing’s for sure though. Goals.
Stretching back almost two decades, just three of the last 21 meetings failed to produce at least three goals. At this venue, the consistency has been a notch better, with seven of the last eight games producing the same stat. It should also be noted that, in h2h ties, the venue has not been that much of a deciding factor, as either has scored plenty both at home and at the other’s ground as well.
The visitors for today were shut out entirely, just once, in their last seven visits here. Also, the home-teams of particular face-to-face games managed to score in 14 of their last 16 attempts.
Count on these teams to produce another nail-biting thriller with plenty of goals, and at both ends.
