Sparta Rotterdam vs FC Twente Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

FC Twente will look for their first points of the new Eredivisie campaign when they travel to the Sparta-Stadion Het Kasteel to take on Sparta Rotterdam on Sunday at lunchtime. Sparta Rotterdam fought back from two-goals down to secure a 2-2 away draw at NAC Breda last time out thanks to a second-half brace from Ragnar Ache. Meanwhile, FC Twente lost 2-0 on the road at PEC Zwolle prior to the International break, with Rene Hake’s men conceding one goal in each half. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT preview.

Betting Predictions and Tips

Sparta Rotterdam looked a bit better than Twente in this early part of the season, but the visitors hold an impressive head-to-head record over the Rotterdammers. Twente have won six of their last seven games across all competitions, scoring at least two goals in each of these. It’s difficult to separate these two sides at the moment, but both looked poor in front of the goal so far so I’m expecting a low-scoring match.

Sparta Rotterdam Preview

Sparta Rotterdam suffered a 3-0 away defeat at the newcomers Venlo in the opening round, but they looked much better in their recent two draws against PEC Zwolle and NAC Breda. They managed to pick up a morale-boost 5-2 victory over Meppen in a friendly fixture during the International break. The Rotterdammers find themselves only in 13th spot in the Eredivisie table with two points under their belts, already four points behind the top seven. The good news is that Sparta looked pretty solid in front of their own fans over the past four months, winning two and drawing two in this term. Furthermore, Rotterdam picked up a 1-0 victory in their most recent home meeting with FC Twente. Last term, Sparta have struggled for consistency on home soil as they were the fifth worst home side in the division with just 22 points collected from their 17 league fixtures. After scoring a brace against NAC Breda last time out in the Eredivisie, Ragnar Ache is now the team’s topscorer and he will be looking to continue this goalscoring form.

FC Twente Preview

Meanwhile, FC Twente are one of the worst teams in this early part of the new Eredivisie campaign as they suffered back-to-back defeats at the hands of Feyenoord, Venlo and PEC Zwolle in their opening three league fixtures. Conceding has been FC Twente’s biggest problem throughout this early part of the season as they allowed two goals in each of their three games. They ended the previous Eredivisie campaign in a disappointing manner and have also had a terrible pre-season. Overall, Twente have only won two of their last 15 games across all competitions. Away from home, Twente are winless in the last four games across all competitions, conceding eight goals and scoring just one in the process. The most worrying fact is that they have failed to score in six of their last ten away fixtures. Twente are one of the four Eredivisie teams without points under their belts in this early part of the season, but they still sit in 15th spot in the standings due to a better goal difference. They have only scored two goals so far this season, but it was expected to struggle in front of the goal after their last season’s topscorer Enes Unal has left the club this summer.
