Willem II vs Sparta Rotterdam Prediction & Match Preview

Willem II vs Sparta Rotterdam
Dutch Eredivisie
Date: Sunday, 13 December 2020
Kick-off at 13:30 UK/ 14:30 CET
Venue: Konig Willem II Stadion (Tilburg).

It is a must win game for both Willem II and Sparta Rotterdam when they lock horns on Sunday.

Both teams struggled for consistency this season and sit in the bottom half of the league table, though the visitors have a better record in recent weeks.

The win against Emmen last week is Sparta’s third in four games after going winless in the first 7 games of the season. However, they must be considered as a poor away team with just 1 win coming from 5 along with a draw while 3 are defeats.

On the other hand, Willem are coming on the back of consecutive defeats, both away from home. Their last home game is a win, 2-1 against VVV-Venlo, only their second overall this season and lost 7 of the 11 so far.

The most alarming stat on the hosts is their defensive record, especially at home where they conceded 11 from 5 games. They did fare well while coming against Sparta, but can they do this with little confidence on their side.

Willem II vs Sparta Rotterdam Prediction

From trend analysis, Willem II holds all the aces, but with poor and inconsistent form on their side, we can back them on a double chance or draw no bet to avoid unwanted risks.

Anyhow, goals can be expected in this duel with the home team seeing over 2.5 goals in all their 5 Eredivisie matches this season, as well as a bulk of their previous head-to-head fixtures at Tilburg.
