Meanwhile, Excelsior were winless in 10 of their previous 14 overall match-ups, and nine of these were losses. More importantly, they have a 100% losing record on the road this season, barring just two games.

How many goals will be scored in the match?

Not only did Excelsior lose their past three road trips, but in the process they let in 15 goals. Their defense has been practically non-existent lately, and for sure the in-form Sparta will target them. Expect goals quite in plenty this weekend.

Will Both Teams Score in the match?
