Groningen vs Sparta Rotterdam
Netherlands – Eredivisie
Date: Sunday, 2 May 2021
Kick-off at 12:30 UK/ 13:30 CET
The Green-White Army are placed seventh in the table at the moment, and they seem almost to be sure of a top-eight finish, as they have a surplus of nine points over the ninth-placed Twente.
A top-eight spot is important, as it warrants an entry to the playoffs of European competitions.
Meanwhile, the Castle Lords are placed 11th in the table, and need to make up a deficit of two points to make it to the playoffs. With just four games remaining in the campaign, they are under pressure to deliver.
Both teams have been finding it hard to perform well in defense, and the same trend could be seen in their previous h2h meetings as well.
By the looks of things, expect a high-scoring thriller this weekend at the Euroborg.
Groningen vs Sparta Rotterdam: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Nine of the former twelve overall clashes had goals from both teams.

- The reverse match-up was a five-goal thriller, where Danny Buijs’s men recorded a 2-3 victory on the road.
- Four of the last seven meetings at this venue had three or more goals.
Groningen vs Sparta Rotterdam Prediction
The Green-White Army have a single clean sheet to their name from the last five games, and they had lost four of their past six fixtures as well.
Meanwhile, their counterparts had conceded two or more goals in two of their last three overall matches, and they had kept a total of just six clean sheets on the road in their past 27 away games.
Moreover, majority of h2h meetings over the years had goals in huge numbers as well.
Taking into account these observations, expect a goal-fest this Sunday between these two teams.
