FC Utrecht vs Sparta Rotterdam Prediction

Despite the recent success achieved in the Dutch Cup, Utrecht FC have been inconsistent when it comes to Eredivisie. Even though the odds were heavily on their side, this team got defeated by RKC Waalkwijk last weekend, the last placed squad on the table. The most recent home stats are not looking good either, featuring three defeats and two victories.

Sparta Rotterdam are entering this match with high hopes after winning nine points in the last four outings. They were victorious against ADO Den Haag, RKC Waalwijk and Emmen, losing only to Groningen. Backing this team to win the match in +1.5 Asian Handicap seems like the right choice.

Utrecht also rarely kept a clean sheet in 2019, so Both teams to score bet at 1.71 also looks tempting.
