Our prediction for this Netherlands Eredivisie match:
Euroborg will host Sunday’s football game between Groningen and Sparta Rotterdam, who face each other on the last day of the regular season. Groningen are having a season to forget, with the team failing to secure the top flight survival and they must be low on confidence following an embarrassing 6-0 loss to Vitesse. Since the Green and Whites have been struggling at the back of late, home win should not be considered. To make things even worse for the home team, goalkeeper Peter Leeuwenburgh is banned for the match.
The Rotterdammers, on the other hand, booked their place in the Conference League playoffs and given their impressive display in a 4-1 win over Cambuur, we believe that punters from all four corners of the world can find value in betting on the away team. There are no fresh selection worries in the visiting side.
Highlighted Team (Sparta Rotterdam):
Founded back on April 1, 1888, Sparta Rotterdam is considered one of the oldest clubs in the Netherlands. De Kasteelheren (the Castle Lords) welcome their opponents at Het Kasteel, and they have a great rivalry with Feyenoord. Yet another Rotterdam club Excelsior are considered Sparta’s fierce rivals as well.
Sparta Rotterdam wear white shirts with red strips when playing on home soil, while sky blue is the dominant colour of their away kit. De Kasteelheren have won six Eredivisie trophies. Sparta were the dominant force in the Dutch football in the 1910s, with the team winning their last league title in the 1958/59 season.
De Kasteelheren have won three Dutch Cup trophies as well (1957/58, 1961/62, 1965/66). In the 1985/86 season Sparta last participated in the UEFA Cup, with the team beating Hamburger SC in round 1, while suffering elimination to Borussia Monchengladbach in the second round. Sparta’s stadium Het Kasteel can hold up to 11,926 spectators.
