Our prediction for this Netherlands Eredivisie match:
Sparta Stadion Het Kasteel will host Saturday’s football game between Sparta Rotterdam and Groningen, the two top-table sides. Sparta have been impressive in the Eredivisie of late, with the team quickly making amends for their slow start to the season. The Castle Lords recorded four wins in the previous six league fixtures, and, no doubt, they are high on confidence following a 3-1 win over Willem II.
Groningen, on the other hand, are eyeing their fourth consecutive win in the Eredivisie. Since both sides are likely to go for a win in Saturday’s clash, we are tempted to put our money on both teams to score. El Hankouri remains on the sidelines through suspension for the visitors, while goalkeeper Tim Coremans remains in the recovery room for the hosts. In their last meeting in the Dutch top flight Groningen recorded a 2-1 win over Sparta Rotterdam.
Highlighted Player (Danny Post):
Born in Amsterdam, Netherlands, Danny Post is a Dutch footballer who plays for VVV-Venlo as a midfielder. Post started his senior career Haarlem, but after making no more than 14 appearances with the club, he joined Groningen in 2009.
The Dutch footballer player only one league game for the Green and White Army as he was loaned to Cambuur in 2010. The next stop in his career was Dordrecht, where he established himself as a first-team regular. After scoring four goals in 50 league appearances for the club, Danny Post moved to VVV-Venlo in 2013. Post made his VVV debut in a goalless draw with Eindhovan on August 2, 2013.
He scored his first goal for the club in a 3-0 win over Achilles ’29 on March 9, 2014. His main position is defensive midfield, but he is capable of producing fine displays as both central midfielder and centre-back. His preferred foot is right.
Highlighted Team (Twente):
Based in the city of Enschede, Twente is a Dutch football club that welcomes their rivals at De Grolsch Veste. The venue was opened on May 10, 1998, and the capacity of the stadium is 30,205 people. The club was founded in 1965 as a merger of Sportsclub Enschede and Enschedese Boys.
The Reds did remarkably well to win the Eredivisie title in the 2009/10 season, with the team finishing the process only one point clear of Dutch giants Ajax. As a result, Twente booked their place in the Champions League group stages. The Reds did well to collect six points in their group, but that did not help them make it to the last 16.
Twente are well known for their red jerseys, but they wear dark blue shirts when playing on the travels. The Reds take on Heracles Almelo in the Twentse Derby. Sander Boshchker is leading Twente’s all-time goal-scoring chart with 653 goals on his account.
