Match Result – Vitesse 

In the last 10 games between the two clubs, we saw 7 victories for Vitesse, 2 for Sparta Rotterdam, and only 1 draw. Vitesse is undoubtedly the better team currently occupying the 4th position while Sparta Rotterdam is 17th. In the last 5 league games, Vitesse won on 3 occasions, lost 1, and 1 game was a draw. Sparta Rotterdam got 1 victory, lost 3 times, and tied 1 game. Considering the participation in the Conference League we believe Vitesse has enough quality to secure the victory in this game.  

Both Teams to Score – No 

In 8 of the last 10 games between the two clubs, one of the sides didn’t score a single goal. Sparta Rotterdam’s attack has been poor so far this season with only 12 goals scored in 16 games. Which is the 2nd worst statistic in the league. The only team performing worse is the currently ranked last team of Zwolle. Vitesse is amongst the teams with the best defense this season in the Eredivisie with 23 goals allowed in 16 games. It will be very difficult for Sparta Rotterdam to gain anything from this game. 

Over 2.5 Goals 

Only 4 of the last 10 games between the two clubs resulted in 3 or more goals being scored. We don’t consider Sparta Rotterdam to score a goal in this game but we believe that Vitesse has enough quality to provide 3 or more goals for the spectators – there are 2 big victories (7:0 and 5:0) in the last 10 games for Vitesse. Sparta Rotterdam will be further burdened by the absence of the 2 main goalkeepers for the team and this will undoubtedly be a huge blow for any clean sheet ambitions. 

Vitesse to crush Sparta Rotterdam on Saturday

Sparta Rotterdam is struggling in the Eredivisie. The absence of Maduka Okoye and Benjamin van Leer will force Sparta’s coach to experiment in the goalkeeper position. Chances for mistakes will be big and the away team will look to take advantage of that. We predict a 0:3 away victory.
