Date: Saturday, 7 November 2020
Kick-Off at 20.00 UK
Venue: Mandemakers Stadion, Waalwijk.

Battle of the strugglers is on this Saturday night in Waalwijk where RKC welcomes Sparta Rotterdam.

Judging by the early days these two squads are going to be heavily involved in the relegation battle in Eredivisie.

If the previous season wasn’t suspended RKC would have been members of Eerste Divisie already.

It seems like they are performing slightly better this time, having collected five points from seven duels.

Sparta Rotterdam are one of the biggest disappointments so far, sitting in the relegation zone.

Despite that, odds are slightly going in their favour, being priced at 2.40 to win this match.

RKC Waalwijk vs Sparta Rotterdam Prediction

Hosts haven’t changed their roster much in comparison to the previous season when they were the weakest squad in the league. We personally are expecting downfall of this team in upcoming months.

The only victory RKC achieved so far happened on the road against Heracles 1-0 FT. However, one of the best performances was 2-2 home draw against Feyenoord.

Coach Fred Grim is once again having big headache because of inefficiency as his squad scored only five times in seven games.

Sparta Rotterdam have slightly better offensive numbers, but situation when it comes to defending is alarming. They conceded 17 goals so far, which is almost 2.50 per duel. The last five games across competitions ended BTTS for them, so we feel comfortable backing this option for Saturday’s clash.
