Willem II Double Chance
Willem II gave their survival hopes a major boost with a 3-1 victory over RKC Waalwijk in their last assignment and the Tricolores can harness the confidence from that result against Sparta Rotterdam. Second from bottom Sparta failed to win any of their last nine Eredivisie fixtures and that rotten run means they could be worth opposing in the double chance market on Saturday.
Both Teams to Score
Sparta and Willem II rank among the worst teams defensively in the Eredivisie this season, claiming just five clean sheets between them in 42 league fixtures since the campaign kicked off. Both rearguards have been more ramshackle than rock-solid and neither backline can be relied upon to shutout any opponent at present. With that considered, we’re tipping both defensive units to concede again on Saturday.
Willem II +1.0 Goal Handicap
The goals have almost completely dried up for Henk Fraser’s toothless Sparta, who have notched just five times in their last nine Eredivisie fixtures combined. However, De Kasteelheren’s lack of cutting edge in the final third could be taken advantage of in the markets. A +1.0 goal handicap bet on Sparta’s opponents would have landed in 100% of their last nine league contests and we recommend backing Willem II with a similar advantage this weekend.
Sparta Rotterdam vs Willem II: Match Preview and Team News
Sparta were trounced 4-0 in the Rotterdam Derby last weekend by city rivals Feyenoord and their performance had all the hallmarks of a team bound for relegation. Sparta will kick off Sunday’s game just one place and one point off bottom spot and they haven’t won an Eredivisie fixture since November 6th.
Willem II bought themselves some breathing room with a fine 3-1 victory over RKC last week and the result also served to relieve some of the pressure on manager Fred Grim. January transfer window signing Thijs Oosting scored twice on his debut for the Tricolores against RKC following his switch from AZ and the acquisition of the 21-year-old could prove to be an inspired piece of business.
