Judging by the opening ten weeks, this year’s battle against relegation in Dutch Eredivisie is going to be very crowded and interesting. Difference on the table between 10th placed Sparta Rotterdam and rock bottom Emmen is just six points. These two teams are locking horns this Friday in Rotterdam, and we are about to see if hosts can capitalize on solid form and confidence built in the recent weeks.
Visiting side has the worst goal difference in the league, entering this clash with four consecutive losses. This said, 1.66 odds on Sparta to win doesn’t come as a surprise. There are plenty of solid betting opportunities available here.

Sparta Rotterdam vs Emmen Prediction
Sparta Rotterdam have opened the new campaign with three straight losses to Ajax, Vitesse and PEC Zwolle without scoring one single goal.
Situation started to get better after a draw in city derby against Feyenoord. The team has won two out of the last three meetings, managing to beat RKC Waalwijk and ADO Den Haag with total goal difference of 8-0.
They also had decent performance against PSV last week, but eventually lost the game 0-1. This squad deserves to be in upper part of the table in our opinion and we have zero doubt they will beat Emmen on Friday.
Besides home win, we will also back one option from the goals market. Emmen conceded 12 goals in the last four appearances, 27 total in 10 matches. Obviously this is their weakest link. Sparta to score in both halves at 2.37 is definitely worth mid-sized stake.
