FC Groningen vs Sparta Rotterdam Prediction
The hosts brought a dismal two-match losing streak to a close in their last clash, as they slotted three unanswered goals past Waalwijk at home. Danny Buijs’s side have certainly been showing a lot more promise in their recent matchups here and have been picking up back to back wins on home soil.
On other Sparta Rotterdam are unbeaten in their previous three games, the last of which saw them take down Twente by a 2-1 scorecard at home. However, the visitors are on the back foot in this one as they have not been coping well in their trips on the road.
As of now, the away side have just one win to their name from their last five outings. The guests have not tasted success in any of their previous five visits to this venue either. With home advantage intact, FC Groningen should be able to secure the bragging rights in this one.
In addition, the hosts have been clinical in front of goal in their clashes here and have racked up five goals to their tally from their last two fixtures alone. Sparta Rotterdam’s backline has not been impressive in holding fort on the road and have conceded ten goals in their outings so far.
Taking into account that the home team have scored three goals or more in three of their last four head to head clashes here as well, count on FC Groningen to score at least twice before the end of the ninety minutes.
