Sparta Rotterdam vs Emmen
Date: Sunday, 1 March 2020
Kick-Off at 15:45 UK
Venue: Sparta Stadion Het Kasteel.
Two teams from Eredivisie safe zone Sparta Rotterdam and Emmen will lock horns this Sunday at Het Kasteel Stadium, and winner of this clash will make a huge step in completely avoiding the relegation battle this season.
Both sides have been inconsistent in the last five weeks, so predicting a full-time winner might be a tricky task.
Sparta Rotterdam’s results at home are just amazing considering the team’s position. This said it is not a surprise to see them marked as hot favorites to win the match at 1.80 odds. Emmen have lost too many games on the road so far as to receive a lot of respect.
Sparta Rotterdam vs Emmen Head-to-head
- Feyenoord was slightly more successful in the previous head to head meetings, winning 26 games while losing 25 times.
- The first clash of the season took place in Rotterdam in mid-December 2019 and hosts were merciless, winning the match 3-1 FT. All three goals were scored by Steven Berghuis.
- PSV have failed to beat Feyenoord at this stadium in the last two attempts. Four out of the last five duels saw both teams score at least one goal.
Sparta Rotterdam vs Emmen Prediction
Not only the record of three draws and nine losses away from home is frightening for Emmen’s fans. Their injury list is quite lengthy – Tarashaj, Beste, Marinus, Bakker, Payne, and Hamrol are all sidelined and won’t be able to play on Sunday.
Emmen have caused a big upset in the previous round after beating Willem II at home 4-2 FT. Efficiency is at an extremely low level when it comes to away days, bagging only two goals in the last seven outings.
Sparta Rotterdam has defeated AZ Alkmaar at this stadium without a lot of trouble. The only slip up happened recently against Groningen. Nonetheless, we will back them to win this match comfortably.
Under 2.5 FT seems like a solid option considering Emmen’s striker’s efficiency on away days.
