Sparta Rotterdam Double Chance

Sparta crawled out of the bottom three with their 2-0 win over relegation rivals Zwolle on Wednesday and their late-season spurt includes three wins in their last five matches.

Five of Heracles’ last eight Eredivisie home assignments produced action at both ends and BTTS could land again in this weekend’s crucial encounter. Each of the last three encounters between Heracles and Sparta have delivered winning both teams to score bets and we’re tipping that pattern to continue here.

Vito van Crooij to Score Anytime

Vito van Crooij has really stepped up for Sparta in the final exchanges of the campaign and three of his five goals this season have been notched inside his last seven appearances. Van Crooij was among the goalscorers when Sparta recorded a pivotal victory over Zwolle on Wednesday and the razor-sharp 26-year-old can make a similar impact at Heracles on Sunday.
