Two of the Eredivisie’s bottom four clubs meet on Saturday when RKC take on Sparta Rotterdam. Read our top three expert predictions for this weekend’s fixture below.

These odds from Ladbrokes were correct at the time of writing.

Draw

With just one victory each in nine Eredivisie fixtures this season, both RKC and Sparta Rotterdam have been among the worst performers in the Netherlands, and with confidence low in both camps, a share of the spoils looks likely when they face off on Saturday. Three of RKC’s and Sparta’s last five assignments respectively have ended all square and a point apiece looks the probable outcome again here.

Under 2.5 Goals

The evidence suggests that bettors should expect a game of few chances at the Mandemakers Stadion in Waalwijk this weekend. Sparta have been averaging less than one goal per game in the Eredivisie this season, while RKC have hit one or fewer goals in three of their last four matches. With firepower in both squads in short supply, we recommend backing under 2.5 goals to hit the net on Saturday.

Under 1.5 Sparta Rotterdam Team Goals

Sparta have been struggling badly in the final third this season and their goal-scoring problems have been even more apparent on the road. Rotterdam have notched just twice in four Eredivisie away games this term and they rank second last in the league for average attempts per contest on their travels (8.3). With their poor record considered, a wager on Sparta to score under 1.5 team goals this weekend could return a profit.

RKC vs Sparta Rotterdam: Match Preview

RKC team news

Joel Pereira, Richard van der Venne and David Min are the only players absent for RKC this weekend. Manager Joseph Oosting was thrilled with his team’s efforts last weekend when they held Feyenoord to a 2-2 draw in Rotterdam. At home, RKC are in the midst of a three-game winless run however, and their haul of just four goals in four tussles at the Mandemakers Stadion highlights where their issues are festering.

Sparta Rotterdam team news

Dirk Abels and Aaron Meijers are both out suspended for Sparta Rotterdam this weekend. Laurent Jans could deputise at left-back, while centre-half Tom Beugelsdijk could also be restored to the starting XI as a result. Sparta have yet to win on the road this term and the only point they did gather away from home came against bottom club PEC Zwolle.
