Draw

Go Ahead Eagles were beaten in each of their first two Eredivisie matches of the new campaign, though they gave a good account of themselves against Heerenveen and particularly at Feyenoord. Sparta meanwhile, picked up their first point of the season in a draw with Heracles last week and they might have to settle for a share of the spoils again against a Go Ahead outfit determined to get off the mark for 2021/22.

Under 2.5 Goals

Both Go Ahead Eagles and Sparta Rotterdam have looked short on cutting edge in the opening weeks of the season. Indeed, the teams have hit just one goal between them so far in four matches combined. With reliable match-winners in short supply in both camps, we’re tipping under 2.5 goals to be scored on Saturday.

Half Time Result: Draw

Go Ahead Eagles displayed their dogged side last week when they went in level with a heavily-fancied Feyenoord side in Rotterdam and that steely resolve should be hard to crack again on Saturday. Sparta have conceded five times already this term, though just one of those efforts was hit before the interval and their habit of keeping things tight in the first half could send the sides in level at the break again.

Go Ahead Eagles vs Sparta Rotterdam: Match Preview

Go Ahead Eagles

Go Ahead Eagles have found the step up in class tough to cope with since their return to the top tier this season, though they did show a robust side to their character in their 2-0 defeat to Feyenoord last week when they kept their vastly superior hosts off the scoresheet for an hour. That might seem like extreme straw grasping, though the Eagles will be determined to latch on to any positive they can following an uninspiring start in the Eredivisie.

Sparta Rotterdam

Sparta’s opening weekend 4-0 hammering at Utrecht was a major confidence shaker and Head Coach Henk Fraser would have been satisfied with a ship steadying point against Heracles shortly after. Rotterdam haven’t looked like the team that finished in 8th spot last term as of yet, though better performances should come with more game time.
