Holland Eredivisie - Sparta Rotterdam vs FC Utrecht Preview


Sparta Rotterdam meet visitors FC Utrecht at Sparta Stadion Het Kasteel in the Eredivisie tie on Sunday.

Sparta Rotterdam
Sparta Rotterdam will play in this fixture after a 1-1 Eredivisie draw vs SC Cambuur. It’s been seldom in recent games that Sparta Rotterdam have shown defensive steel. It will be a concern for them that Sparta Rotterdam have been scored against in 5 of their previous 6 matches, giving up 9 goals in the process. That kind of trend might not be sustained into this game, of course.

FC Utrecht
After tasting defeat last time out to Ajax in Eredivisie competition, FC Utrecht will be hoping to turn things around here. The numbers tell their own story, and FC Utrecht have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 games, seeing opposing sides hit 13 goals in total. Defensively, FC Utrecht can certainly do much better.

Here, we’re thinking that Sparta Rotterdam will really need to work well to score against this FC Utrecht side who we think should be able to grind out a win. We’re therefore anticipating a very even match with a 0-1 advantage for FC Utrecht after 90 minutes.
