Zwolle vs Sparta Rotterdam – Free Betting Tips & Predictions

Bottom club Zwolle go in search of their first point of the new campaign when they entertain Sparta Rotterdam on Wednesday. Read our top three expert predictions for this week’s fixture below.

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


Zwolle have endured a miserable start to the 2021/22 Eredivisie campaign and their run of five straight defeats has left them rooted to the foot of the table. Their first point of the season could be on offer on Wednesday however, when Sparta visit the MAC³PARK Stadion. The visitors have yet to pick up a point or score a goal on the road this term and their lack of confidence as the away team could allow Zwolle to finally get off the mark.

Under 2.5 Goals

Remarkably, Zwolle have yet to hit the net this season despite playing five matches of the new campaign. Frustratingly for coach Art Langeler, his team have looked decent defensively however, conceding just seven goals so far. 100% of their league fixtures have produced under 2.5 goals and that pattern could continue on Wednesday when Zwolle meet a Sparta outfit that are averaging just 1.0 goals per 90 minutes since the summer.

Both Teams to Score – No

Both teams not to score would have been a successful bet in 100% of PEC Zwolle’s Eredivisie assignments this term and in each of Sparta’s first two away tests of the campaign, and with both clubs looking short on reliable finishers, we’re tipping at least one of them to fail in the final third again. Zwolle (3.0) and Sparta (3.6) both rank in the bottom four for average shots on target per game this season, so don’t expect much in the way of cutting edge at the MAC³PARK Stadion.

Zwolle vs Sparta Rotterdam: Match Preview

Zwolle team news

Sai van Wermeskerken could be missing from the host’s defence this week, while midfielder Mustafa Saymak is also rated as doubtful. Pelle Clement is almost certain to miss out as he recovers from an ankle complaint. Zwolle were well beaten at Go Ahead Eagles last time out, though the score could have been wider than 1-0 had keeper Kostas Lamprou not played so well between the sticks.

Sparta Rotterdam team news

Sparta have a relatively clean bill of health ahead of Wednesday’s fixture with defender Tom Beugelsdijk their only major injury concern. De Kasteelheren were held to a disappointing 1-1 draw at home to NEC last Friday, though their unbeaten start on their own patch remained intact. Sparta have been worryingly subpar outside Rotterdam however, where they have lost twice to nil in two tests so far.
