These odds from 888sport were correct at the time of writing.

Draw

Both Sparta Rotterdam and Groningen have been struggling to secure victories in the opening exchanges of the new Eredivisie campaign, indeed, the clubs have managed to win just once in eight fixtures respectively so far. With confidence low in both camps, a share of the spoils looks possible on Sunday and when you consider that Sparta have drawn two of their four home assignments since the summer, the odds for the teams to finish at level pegging become even more tempting.

Both Teams to Score

Three of Sparta’s first four home games of the 2021/22 campaign in the Netherlands produced goals at both ends, while three of Groningen’s first four tests on the road also delivered winners for BTTS backers. It’s also worth noting that both teams to score landed in each of the last three encounters between the sides and we recommend sticking with that market on Sunday.

Under 1.5 NEC Team Goals

Sparta and Groningen hold similar goal-scoring records this season, averaging just 0.875 goals per 90 minutes in the Eredivisie overall. With their shared struggles in the final third well established, and a draw forecast in an earlier tip, a 1-1 final score jumps out at a price worth backing this weekend. Sparta have already tied 1-1 with two of their visitors to Rotterdam this term and a repeat performance looks possible here.

Sparta Rotterdam vs Groningen: Match Preview

Sparta Rotterdam team news

Tom Beugelsdijk is rated as a doubt for Sunday’s game, while Aaron Meijers will sit out the contest due to a suspension. Sparta have endured a miserable campaign so far and they collected just two points from the 12 on offer in the lead up to the international break. De Kasteelheren will kick-off Sunday’s fixture just two places off the bottom of the Eredivisie table.

Groningen team news

Mike Te Wierik, Laros Duarte and Radinio Balker are all considered doubts ahead of the weekend for Groningen. Danny Buijs’s men stopped a three-game losing streak with a useful point at home to Twente before club football paused for the international break, though a second victory of the season looks far from imminent for the out-of-sorts Trots van het Noorden.
