Sparta Rotterdam vs PEC Zwolle Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

PEC Zwolle will be looking for their second consecutive victory in the Eredivisie when they travel to the Sparta-Stadion Het Kasteel to take on Sparta Rotterdam on Sunday afternoon. Sparta Rotterdam suffered a disappointing 3-0 defeat on the road at the newcomers Venlo last weekend. On the other hand, PEC Zwolle won 4-2 at home over Roda JC Kerkrade thanks to goals from Dirk Marcellis, Mustafa Saymak, Bram van Polen and an own-goal from Adil Auassar. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT preview.

Betting Predictions and Tips

PEC Zwolle looked incredibly strong in their 4-2 home win over Roda last weekend as they had an overwhelming 61% ball possession and managed to create over 25 goalscoring opportunities. They should have enough to grab another three points in this one, particularly against a Sparta Rotterdam side who conceded three goals at the hands of the newcomers Venlo last weekend.

Sparta Rotterdam Preview

Sparta Rotterdam ended the previous Eredivisie campaign with back-to-back wins over FC Twente and Go Ahead Eagles, but were unable to kick off the new season in a similar manner as they got thrashed 3-0 on the road at the newcomers Venlo last weekend. Actually, the Rotterdammers were on an eight-game unbeaten streak across all competitions prior to their defeat against Venlo. This leaves Sparta only in 17th spot in the Eredivisie table with no points to their name, and alongside ADO Den Haag they are the only two sides to have failed to score in the first round. At home, Sparta have struggled for consistency over the past nine months, winning just four of their last 15 home fixtures across all competitions. In addition, Sparta Rotterdam have only won once in their last three home meetings with PEC Zwolle in the Eredivisie, scoring at least two goals in two of these. The problem is that Sparta have sold two of their last season’s best players this summer and they have only brought in three new signings on free transfers. They were lucky to avoid the drop last term, but this seems to be an impossible task at the moment as they have a much weaker squad than last season.

Sparta Rotterdam Team News

Roland Bergkamp is a doubt, but Janne Saksela is still out through a cruciate ligament injury. In addition, Julian Chabot is missing through suspension.

PEC Zwolle Preview

PEC Zwolle have also struggled for consistency in the Eredivisie last term, finishing just in 14th in the standings with just one point clear off the bottom three. However, Zwolle had an impressive pre-season campaign as they have won seven and draw two of their nine friendly fixtures. Furthermore, PEC Zwolle kicked off the new Eredivisie campaign in fashion, winning 4-2 at home against Roda JC Kerkrade. Zwolle looked incredibly strong going forward over the past three months, scoring at least two goals in eight of their last nine games across all competitions. Furthermore, PEC Zwolle have scored three goals in two of the last three meetings with Sparta Rotterdam. Zwolle’s away form in the Eredivisie towards the end of the last season have seen them win just five of their last 13 away league games. In addition, PEC Zwolle have picked up victories in two of the last three visits to the Sparta-Stadion Het Kasteel, scoring at least two goals in each of these. Head-to-head, Zwolle have only lost two of their last seven meetings with Sparta Rotterdam across all competitions.

PEC Zwolle Team News

Wouter Marinus is the only doubtful player for Zwolle ahead of this visit.
