Sparta Rotterdam vs TOP Oss Prediction
Sparta has dominated Oss for quite so long. In the last 17 years, only once has Sparta lost against this team. Also, the team scored two or more goals against Oss in 15 of the last 19 meetings, and in seven of the last nine at this venue.
Moreover, Sparta was unbeaten in 17 of their last 19 home ties and won 14 of them as well. On the other hand, Oss was winless in seven of their last ten away ties and lost five of them too.
Importantly, Oss took a mental beating as they lost the home leg, and failed to record even a single goal. As of now, they have let in two away goals, and need to overcome that deficit at Sparta’s home, where they have been at their definitive best.
Oss will have to attack from the get-go, and the hosts will take advantage of this desperation. A hard-fought win for the home team is on the cards.
