Sparta Rotterdam vs NAC Breda
Netherlands – Eredivisie
Date: Wednesday, 18 April 2018
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK
Venue: Sparta-Stadion Het Kasteel (Rotterdam).
Dick Advocaat will only have four days to recover his team after a demolishing 7-0 loss to Vitesse. Such a horrific loss came out of nowhere as De Kasteelheren entered the match off the back of a 3-2 win over VVV, while Vitas went through a turbulent period with the management change caused by the run of three straight games without a goal.
Sparta are now set to take on fellow strugglers NAC Breda in what has all the ingredients of being a genuine relegation six-pointer at this stage. The hosts are second from bottom at the moment, a position which would lead them into the relegation playoffs. They are six points shy of the safe zone, a place currently held by their Wednesday’s counterparts NAC Bread.
The good news for Advocaat is that the visitors won’t come into the match in much hogher spirits either after falling 1-2 at home to Willem II at the weekend.

Sparta Rotterdam vs NAC Breda: Prediction
Both teams were pretty vulnerable defensively of late. Sparta shipped two or more goals in each of last four league ties. NAC Breda, on the other side, conceded two in the home clash with fellow strugglers Willem Ii on Sunday. Eight of last nine head to head games saw both teams scoring at least once. This term’s H2H clash ended in a 2-2 draw. We really don’t need anything else to back goals at both ends at the odds of 1.57 here.
The hosts desperately need points, but they’ve just been way too easy to break down recently. After all, thy will head into this after shipping seven goals in the weekends catastrophe in Arnhem. We thus have to notice the value in the 2.62 odds offered for NAC Breda to score two or more goals here.
