Sparta Rotterdam vs Groningen Prediction
With both teams in a strong form in the campaign, deciding on a winner is hard. The double chance will probably be the safest option considering the game could also end in a draw.
Sparta enjoys the ground advantage in the game and is on a double win in the league schedule. And at home, the host has a mixed form but has scored 14 goals in their 6 attempts until now.
On the contrary, Groningen alternates win and loss in their away fixtures. They are stingy away from home, scoring and conceding 7 goals each in their 5 appearances on the road.
Since playing at home is their strongest suit, the double chance favoring Rotterdam will probably be the best bet for the punters. Besides, the away team cannot be taken lightly, and thus, the BTTS will also come in handy from the goals area.
