Sparta Rotterdam vs Ajax
Netherlands – Eredivisie
Date: Sunday, 13 September 2020
Kick-off at 13:30 UK/ 14:30 CET
Venue: Sparta Stadion Het Kasteel (Rotterdam).
The un-crowned champions of the last season Eredivisie will pay a visit to Rotterdam in the opening match of the new edition of the campaign as the favorites to win the clash.
Sparta Rotterdam is highly unlikely to take something out of the fixture as their last season record in the table was 23 points behind the visitors.
The host will play on the back of a 5-1 loss on the road against FC Utrecht in the campaign.
Ajax finished at the top last season but didn’t get the champion’s name because of the pandemic. However, they will aim to repeat their streak in the league this season for the title.
They will visit on the back of a 1-3 win on the road against Heerenveen last time out.

Sparta Rotterdam vs Ajax Prediction
Ajax is a name that is well known even outside the Dutch football. Even amidst the clubs from other leagues across the world, the Ajax squad has left an impact in the middle.
Sparta Rotterdam has been unsuccessful in their last nine tries in the h2h meetings with Ajax, which includes four consecutive losses as the host too.
Based on these stats, Ajax will look forward to an easy away win in the game. In the last four visits, Ajax has left with at least a two-goal margin win.
That’s why backing the away side to win with a -1 handicap will probably yield decent returns for the punters. Along with that, a BTTS will also come in handy for the clash at Rotterdam.
