After relegation, Sparta has been exceptional this season. At present they are 2nd in the table, with 9 wins and only 1 defeat. They are just a point behind the toppers Eagles. From 14 matches they have scored 27 goals and conceded only 12 in the process.
They are currently on an 8 match unbeaten streak in the league, which includes 5 wins. Over 2.5 goals came in 5 of those 8 matches as well. But they have only managed to keep 2 clean sheets in that run.
Sparta is the only team to win all 7 of their home game this season. This record is the main reason for them being second in the table. Over 2.5 goals were scored in 4 games recently played at this venue.
The visiting side is 7th after 14 rounds are completed. They have won 6 and lost 4 of their league games. A league-best 29 goals have been scored by the PSV reserves, but they have conceded 27 in return pointing out their defensive weakness.
After a 4 match winless streak in all competitions that included 2 defeats, they won 2 of their recent league matches in a row. Over 2.5 goals were scored in 9 of the last 10 competitive matches they took part in. So at present, they are on a 2 match win streak in the league.

The hosts have never disappointed their home fans, as they have won all their matches at home. So I don’t think they will lose to Jong PSV on Friday. Simply based on their home form we can place a bet on Rotterdam to win with 1.50 odd.
Even though under 2.5 goals have been scored in their recent h2h matches, the recent matches of both the sides state it will not be the case on Friday. In 9 of the last 10 competitive matches played by the PSV reserves, the total score was over 2.5 goals. Also, the last 4 home games of the hosts yielded over 2.5 in total per match. So we can bet on a score of over 2.5 goals with 1.44 odd.
