Neither will rest until the doors to the Eredivisie is opened to them. We really do have a gladiator-match on the cards for us. Both will be walking on to the pitch with the sole aim of winning the tie.
A loss will have massive ripples in the title equations, and moreover promotion possibilities. So will a draw. Even with their top-tier status, these teams don’t have the luxury to take it simple. Expect sparks to fly and tempers to flare as these two titans meet.

Sparta Rotterdam vs Twente Prediction
Goals have never been in scarcity for the matches that these teams took part in.
The Castle Lords have scored the most number of goals at home in the league. The Reds are the best team on the road and have recorded the second-most number of goals away from home. The average goals per game for either is 3.1 and 3 respectively.
The last five matches of Henk Fraser’s men had goals from both teams, and so did the last three of their counterparts. The team from Rotterdam scored in 40 of their last 47 games and registered two or more goals in six of their last eight. The streak is even scary at home – two or more goals in ten of their last eleven home-ties.
Marino Pusic’s men breached defenses in 39 of their last 45 ties and did so twice in nine of their last 12. They managed to net goals in 14 of their last 15 games on the road. Of those, they scored two or more in nine of thirteen.
The reckoning is psych up for one heck of a game riddled with goals.
