VVV-Venlo vs Sparta Rotterdam
Date: Sunday, 7 February 2021
Kick-Off at 15.45 UK
Venue: Covebo Stadion – De Koel.
VVV and Sparta Rotterdam will drop curtain on the Matchday No 21 in Dutch Eredivisie on Sunday afternoon when they take on each other in a low-profile clash at Covebo Stadion – De Koel.
Both teams sit deep in the bottom half of the standings but are on a safe distance from the red zone.
VVV will enter the clash in higher spirits having won three of the last four matches in all competitions. They have the competition’s top scorer in their ranks as Giorgos Giakoumakis bagged 21 goals in 21 appearances this season.
The Greek forward has literally exploded out of nowhere. He bagged four goals on two separate occasions in this term of Eredivisie.
One such occasion happened ten days ago when the Greek wonder scored all of his team’s goals in a demolishing 4-1 drubbing of second-placed Vitesse at De Koel.
VVV-Venlo vs Sparta Rotterdam Head-to-head
Sparta Rotterdam have been the more successful outfit in the history of this match-up. They won 13, drew 4, and lost 8 of 25 encounters with VVV.
We should be in for goals on Sunday judging by the most recent head to head results. Each of the last four meetings between the two teams produced at least three goals. Three of their last four games have seen at least four goals.
It is worth noting that the home court advantage has played a big role in the history of this match-up. VVV have thus won 7 and lost only 3 of 12 home outings against De Kastelheeren.
VVV-Venlo vs Sparta Rotterdam Prediction
Sparta took just two points in the last four league matches. They notched only one goal in the last three games. However, they are going up against the team with the joint-worst defensive record in the entire division and we have reasons to expect them to get on the scoresheet here.
Venlo play ultra-attacking football and we would be very surprised not to see the continuation of a high-scoring tradition in this match-up.
After all, the last two of VVV’s matches have produced five goals apiece. Their striker Georgios Giakoumakis notched five goals in the last two outings and he is 2.40 to score anytime on Sunday.
