Groningen vs Sparta Rotterdam – Free Betting Tips & Predictions

Groningen have lost four games on the bounce ahead of their clash with Sparta Rotterdam on Saturday. Read our top three predictions for this weekend’s fixture below.

These odds from Ladbrokes were correct at the time of writing.

Sparta Rotterdam Double Chance

Groningen’s continental qualification hopes have been dashed by a rotten run of four straight defeats and with little left to play for between now and the campaign’s end, the hosts could be undone by a more motivated Sparta. Maurice Steijn’s side have avoided defeat in six of their last ten assignments as they battle against the drop and Sparta showed plenty of spirit in their 1-1 draw with AZ last weekend. De Kasteelheren took four points from their last two meetings with Groningen and with their need for points bordering on drastic, they are worth backing in the double chance market again.

Both Teams to Score

Bettors on the lookout for both teams to score options this weekend should consider a stake in that market when Groningen host Sparta Rotterdam on Saturday. BTTS has been a winning bet in six of the host’s last seven fixtures, while each of the last four encounter between Groningen and Sparta have also produced action at both ends. Expect that pattern to continue at Euroborg this weekend.

First Team to Score – Sparta Rotterdam

Groningen’s confidence will undoubtedly be a little fragile following their four-match losing streak and with the crowd at Euroborg getting restless, a slow start could turn the atmosphere nasty on Saturday. Sparta will be fully aware of the landscape and manager Maurice Steijn will send his players out with a rapid start in mind. Groningen have conceded first in three of their last four skirmishes and a stake on Sparta to open the scoring at their expense is available at a tempting price on Saturday.

Tomas Suslov, Jan Hoekstra and Radinio Balker are all considered doubtful for Groningen this week while Mike te Wierik is ruled out until later this month. Groningen could still finish as low as 13th place if results continue to go against them and what seemed like a positive campaign is in danger of finishing on a real sour note.

Sparta Rotterdam

Michael Goncalves Pinto and Mario Engels are both listed as injury absentees for Sparta Rotterdam this week. Sparta struck a last-gasp equalizer at home to AZ in their last Eredivisie fixture and moved to within three points of safety in the process. With just three games left, they are one of five teams battling to beat the drop..
