Sparta Rotterdam vs Roda JC Kerkrade Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Sparta Rotterdam welcome Roda JC Kerkrade at the Sparta-Stadion Het Kasteel on Sunday afternoon, with both teams looking to return to winning ways in the Eredivisie. Sparta Rotterdam suffered a narrow 1-0 defeat on the road at ADO Den Haag last time out in the Eredivisie despite the fact they had several goalscoring opportunities. On the other hand, Roda JC Kerkrade threw away a one-goal lead following Mitchell Paulissen’s early goal to succumb to a 2-1 away defeat at Heracles last weekend. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news, match stats and odds all in our SBAT preview.

Betting Predictions and Tips

I’m backing Sparta Rotterdam to grab all three points in this one as Roda JC Kerkrade have been terrible in this early part of the season. In addition, Sparta have only lost once in their last six home games across all competitions, while Roda have lost four of their last five away competitive fixtures.

Sparta Rotterdam Preview

Sparta Rotterdam have endured a disappointing start to this 2017/18 competitive season, having won just once in their seven competitive fixtures. They come into this clash on the back of a three-game losing streak across all competitions, including a disappointing 1-0 away loss at Waalwijk in the KNVB Beker Cup. The most worrying fact is that the Rotterdammers have failed to score a single goal in their most recent three competitive games. Actually, scoring goals has been their biggest problem throughout this early part of the new Eredivisie campaign as they hold the worst attacking record in the division with four goals under their belts after six rounds. Ragnar Ache has been Sparta’s most dangerous player in front of goal so far this season, as he is leading the club’s goalscoring charts with two goals under his belt. Their home form over the past four months has seen them lose just once in their last six games across all competitions. Furthermore, Sparta Rotterdam are undefeated in three home meetings with Roda JC Kerkrade, keeping two clean sheets in the process.

Sparta Rotterdam Team News

Mark Veenhoven and Paco Van Moorsel are both doubts, while Janne Saksela and Michel Breuer are out through injury.

Roda JC Kerkrade Preview

Roda JC Kerkrade are definitely the worst team in the Eredivisie at the moment in time, suffering defeats in each of their opening six league fixtures. Their sole victory in this 2017/18 competitive season was a 0-5 away triumph at Capelle in the KNVB Beker Cup a fortnight ago. Roda are rock bottom of the league table with no points to their name, already five points behind safety. Keeping the ball out of their own net has been their main issue in this early part of the campaign as they hold the worst defensive record in the division, conceding 16 goals in six league games. Away from home, Roda JC Kerkrade have lost four of their last five away games across all competitions, having conceded ten goals in the process. The only good news is that Roda are undefeated in the last two meetings with Sparta Rotterdam in the Eredivisie, scoring at least two goals in each of these. Simon Gustafson is a player to watch here as he has already scored two goals in his six league appearances.

Ognjen Gnjatic is the only doubtful player for Roda ahead of this trip.
