Groningen disappointed their fans badly after fighting their way to a 3-3 draw against the runaway leaders PSV last week. Green-Whites fell to the relegation-threatened Excelsior side losing 2-0 at the weekend, but they should find opportunities to get some points on board this Sunday against the out-of-form Sparta Rotterdam side.

Sparta will head into this on the back of a disastrous 0-7 defeat at home against city rivals Feyenoord last Sunday and Pastoor will indeed have a quite challenging task in raising his lads’ confidence ahead of an important fixture set to close the year for them. Sparta are yet to celebrate a victory of the road where they’ve lost three and drawn two of last five matches.

The clash will be a special occasion for Groningen’s top scorer Mimoun Mahi who arrived to Pride of the North just from Sparta where he spent three years upon introducing himself to the Eredivisie football. Sparta’s horrendous form at the back should be the music to his ears and we can expect him to add to his six-goal tally on Sunday.

Groningen vs Sparta Rotterdam: Predictions

Groningen have been pretty efficient in the most recent outings in front of the home crowd where they have bagged at least three goals in three of their last four matches.

Given Sparta have lost four on the trot, including a 0-7 disaster against Feyenoord last weekend, the home win is the only logical betting option here.
