Go Ahead Eagles vs Sparta Rotterdam Prediction & Match Preview

Go Ahead Eagles vs Sparta Rotterdam
Netherlands – Eredivisie
Date: Saturday, 28 August 2021
Kick-off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: De Adelaarshorst.

Sparta are one of the formidable teams in the Dutch top flight, and they had secured a top-half finish the last season. Meanwhile, the Eagles have just been promoted to the Eredivisie, and they also have a poor h2h record against this rival. Likely, expect a win for the former.

They had ended eighth in the table in 2020-21, and were unbeaten in 21 of their total 34 games. They had also scored 49 goals through the campaign, and despite a slow start to their new campaign, the team has been rather consistent over the course of the past few months.

In the meantime, the Eagles are finding out just how tough it is to compete in the top division. They are on a 100% losing record, and have also conceded in plenty.

On top of that, they have also struggled against this foe in h2h meetings over the years.

Likely, expect a win for Sparta this Saturday.
