MATCH PREVIEW
MAIN PREDICTION: HOME WIN
 
Emmen set out to defend a 4-0 lead over NEC Nijmegen on Sunday but had to travel into the lion’s den. It took NEC only 11 minutes to diminish Emmen’s aggregate lead to two. However, the visitors’ Alexander Bannink scored in the 14th minute which meant NEC needed another four. The hosts did add two more before half time to make it a surprisingly exciting affair, but Emmen held on to their aggregate lead and are now still in the race for their very first promotion to the Eredivisie.
Sparta Rotterdam defended a 2-1 lead at home against Dordrecht on Sunday but were struggling. Manager Dick Advocaat was concerned when his men were trailing 2-0 after 26 minutes and replaced Kenneth Dougall with attacking midfielder Thomas Verhaar. Deroy Duarte scored in the 57th minute before Robbert Muhren brought a lot of relief to the 10,000 visitors as he equalised for Sparta’s aggregate 4-3 win.
I believe Emmen will succeed in containing Sparta here. They don’t have the best squad available but manager Dick Lukkien has his men playing together excellently at just the right time – in contrast to Sparta who definitely have the individual talent but are bound to struggle against a tight unit. Sparta have won only one and drawn one of their last 17 league games away from home, with 15 defeats in that time. I’m going for a home win here.  
 
SECOND PREDICTION: CORRECT SCORE – 2-1
 
Emmen scored exactly twice in four of their final five matches during the regular season, but they also conceded goals in those four games. Sparta Rotterdam managed barely one goal on average away from home before the playoffs, with 13 goals scored in 17 matches. I’m going with a 2-1 home win.
 
HEAD TO HEAD
The last meeting in Emmen between the sides was in November 2015 when Sparta Rotterdam won 3-1. The teams have met nine times at Emmen, with both winning three times and registering three draws.
