Sparta Rotterdam go in search of their first victory of the new campaign when they take on Fortuna Sittard on Sunday. Read our top three expert predictions for this weekend’s fixture below.

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

Fortuna Sittard Double Chance

Despite being handed a relatively kind early set of fixtures, Sparta Rotterdam only managed to take one point from their first three Eredivisie assignments of the new campaign and confidence in their ranks should be low as a result. In contrast, Fortuna have started well with a victory over Twente and a draw with RKC, and having won on their last trip to play Sparta in Rotterdam back in February, the Fortunezen look an interesting price in the double chance market for Sunday.

Both Teams to Score

Only Vitesse have conceded more goals than Sparta Rotterdam in the early exchanges of the new campaign, so a clean sheet shouldn’t be expected on Sunday for the rusty-looking hosts. Fortuna meanwhile, conceded in each of their first two top-flight tests since the summer before replying in kind and we’re tipping the early BTTS streak in the games to continue this weekend.

Over 1.5 Fortuna Team Goals

Sparta have been conceding a whopping 17.7 attempts per game so far this term and their incredibly loose defending has frustrated Head Coach Henk Fraser. Fortuna Sittard managed to hit the net twice in each of their first two fixtures of the 2021/22 season and with Rotterdam’s fragility at the back causing major issues, the visitors are worth backing in the over 1.5 team goals market again.

Sparta Rotterdam vs Fortuna Sittard: Match Preview

Sparta Rotterdam team news

Henk Fraser has few injury concerns ahead of Sunday’s game, but after the team’s poor run before the international break, the Sparta coach could be tempted to make changes. Tom Beugelsdijk, Gaultiér Overman and Laurent Jans will be among those pushing to start as Sparta go in search of their first victory of the season.

Fortuna Sittard team news

Last season’s leading marksman Lisandro Semedo is inching towards a comeback, though the Fortuna forward is unlikely to feature again this weekend. Elsewhere, Sittard’s squad looks strong and manager Sjors Ultee is expected to keep his team in the 4-3-3 shape that worked so well against Twente and earned a point against RKC.
