Sparta have won only once on the road this season ahead of their trip to Arnhem to play Vitesse. Read our top three expert predictions for this week’s fixture below.

Vitesse to Win

Vitesse have managed to win seven of their last nine assignments at GelreDome and fresh from a resounding 4-1 victory there over NEC, Vites are favourites to pocket another three points against relegation-threatened Sparta. The visitors have won only one away fixture in the Eredivisie this term and they were thumped 4-0 in their last test on the road at Feyenoord.

Over 1.5 Vitesse Team Goals

Vitesse claimed the spoils in December when they last hosted Sparta at GelreDome in a cup clash that finished 2-1 in the host’s favour and that was the third time in four meetings with the Rotterdam outfit where Vites notched at least two goals. Sparta have shipped at least two efforts in three of their last four Eredivisie tussles and their leaky backline could be breached on multiple occasions again on Friday.

Nikolai Baden Frederiksen to Score Anytime

Danish prospect Nikolai Baden Frederiksen hit both of Vitesse’s goals in the club’s 2-2 Eredivisie draw with Sparta in Rotterdam on December 18th and the 21-year-old also registered twice when Vites knocked the same opponents out of the cup three days earlier (2-1). Frederiksen has already shown that he has the skills to punish the Sparta defence and the attacker looks an interesting option in the anytime goalscorer market as a result.

Vitesse vs Sparta Rotterdam: Match Preview and Team News


Vitesse’s 4-1 win at home to a strong NEC side last time out was a welcome return to form for Thomas Letsch’s side. The victory moved Vitesse on to 40 points for the campaign and a top six finish in the Eredivisie looks achievable. Letsch should have Adrian Grbic back in contention on Friday following the end of his one-game ban.

Sparta Rotterdam

Second from bottom Sparta gave a good account of themselves in their 2-1 reverse at home to PSV last weekend, though their performances away from Rotterdam have paled in comparison. Only Heracles have collected fewer points on the road so far and no team has scored fewer away goals overall than Henk Fraser’s strugglers.
