Sparta Rotterdam vs Emmen: Tips, Odds, and Predictions

After having a stunning season in the Second Division last year and managing to earn a promotion to Eredivisie, Emmen has a lot tougher task to stay among the Dutch football elite.

Sparta Rotterdam to Win

Sparta positively started the season to manage games against the teams they are capable of beating and doing their best against the favorites. They had a limited budget to improve their team this past summer, but coach Maurice Steijn is doing a fine job of delegating responsibilities throughout his squad. With three wins out of their eight matches, Sparta will be the favorite against Emmen who only has one win to their name, and are second from the bottom with only five points. Also, Emmen is the only team without a point when playing away from home.

Under 2.5 Goals

Emmen is also a team that doesn't have a good enough forward line to score goals regularly. They only have six for the season, or rather a goal difference of 2-12 when playing on the opposition's turf. Emmen only brought midfielders and defenders during the summer transfer window failing to spend any money, as all of their players were brought in as loanees or on a free transfer.

Sparta aims high for European competition

Sparta lost only once in their last five matches, their good run of form is key to maintaining a position close to the ones that will enable them to fight for a place among teams who will play in European competition next season. It's been a while since their fans experienced something different outside their backyard. Vito van Crooij is the key for Sparta, he is their best scorer with four goals.

Sparta Rotterdam probable starting lineup: Schoonerwaldt, Abels, Vriends, Auassar, Micha Pinto, de Guzman, Mijnans, Verschueren, Namli, Lauritsen, van Crooij.

Emmen is one of the worst teams in the league, but that wasn't unexpected. They are a club with a small budget, and their management knew it was going to be extremely hard to maintain their Eredivisie status. Of course, the season is long, there is still time to turn things around, however, the coach Dick Lukkien who is at the helm since 2016, needs to find players who can score goals. Ole Romeny is, as it seems, the only one who can do it, he scored three goals this season, which is half of all the goals Emmen scored.

Emmen probable starting lineup: Oelschlagel, Burnet, Veldmate, Araujo, Veendorp, Bernadou, Vlak, ter Haar, Diemers, Mendes, Zivkovic.
