Excelsior vs Sparta Rotterdam Lineups, Team News, and Match Preview

Excelsior

They don't win much, but Excelsior doesn't lose too many games either. The Rotterdam outfit is holding onto the seventh spot in the Eredivisie at the moment with only one loss from the six matches they played. Noah Naujoks and Lennard Hartjes are out due to injury while there is a doubt about the availability of Mike van Duinen, Kik Pierie, and Jacky Donkor.

Possible lineup: van Gassel, Horemans, Widell, Nieuwpoort, Zagre, el Yaakoubi, Baas, Sandra, Agrafiotis, Driouech, Fernandes.

Sparta Rotterdam

Sparta has continued where the team left off last season with a good display of defensive football. With three wins, a couple of draws, and only one loss, another of the Rotterdam-based teams has been keeping their spot in the top five of the league standings. Sergi Rosanas is out with health concerns.

Possible lineup: Olij, van der Kust, Velthuis, Meissen, Bakari, Kitolano, de Guzman, Saito, Verschueren, Clement, Lauritsen.

Player to Watch: Koki Saito

The Japanese winger is on loan at Sparta from the Belgian side Lommel until the end of the current season. This is his second year at the Rotterdam outfit and this term he has been doing great work promoting himself to the Eredivisie fans. He played in five games this campaign and scored twice while delivering a single assist.

Saito was raised in Yokohama's academy and then played three years for the senior squad. His footballing rights were sold to Lommel and after a lackluster first year at the club, he moved on to Sparta to come back after his loan deal expires.
