Sparta Rotterdam vs Willem II
Date: Saturday, 15th October 2016,
Kick-Off at 17:30 UK,
Venue: Sparta Stadion, Rotterdam.
Sparta Rotterdam will be facing Willem II on Saturday Afternoon at the Sparta-Stadion Het Kasteel as the two sides aims to get back to winning ways in their Eredivisie weekly activities.
Sparta Rotterdam have been lacking consistency in their recent games, but they have had a good overall campaign. The Spartans have lost 3 of their 8 Eredivisie games this season, they only lost to Ajax, FC Twente and FC Utrecht.
Sparta Rotterdam will enter this game from a 1-1 home draw against AZ Alkmaar in their last game before the break. They went down just 6 minutes into the game, but they did well to equalise 6 minutes to half-time as Breuer jabbed the ball into the net. They will aim for a win in this game to get into the play-off spot depending on other results.
Meanwhile, Willem II have been awful since the beginning of the season, they are among the teams in the relegation spot. They will enter this game from a 6-game win-less streak, which includes a 0-2 home loss to Feyenoord in their last game.
Willem’s problem could the traced to lack of goals, they have the joint 2nd worst offensive record in the league. They have scored only 5 goals from 8 games so far this season. They will be hoping to win this game and lift themselves out of the relegation spot.

Sparta Rotterdam vs Willem: Prediction
Willem’s recent form is nothing to write home about, they have been on a winless streak in all competitions. Willem have won just a game in the Eredivisie this season, they only have 6 points from 8 games played so far. The visitors have lost 3 of their last 6 games and drawn 3. Also, they have failed to score in 5 of their last 6 games in all competitions.
Spartans’ recent form have been a mixed bag, they have won 2 games, drawn 2 and lost 1 of their last 5 games. They have scored at least 2 goals in 2 of their last 4 games.
The home team have a slight edge over their visitors considering their recent form, I expect them to grab at least a point in the game.
