Team News, Probable Lineups, and Preview

Sparta Rotterdam

Sparta is exceeding expectations with every passing round of matches. They have taken a point from PSV last week, and even though they lost to the same opponent in the midweek Cup match, they are in good spirits coming into the match against Excelsior. Only three teams this season have a better defensive record than Sparta, those are Twente, Heerenveen, and Feyenoord. It's not a bad company to be involved in, but the work for Sparta is still coming up. Matches against teams like Excelsior are a must-win, especially when they play them at home where their fortress resides. Jonathan De Guzman and Younes Namli are injured, while Arno Verschueren will miss the match against Excelsior because of an injury issue.

Probable lineup: Olij, Sambo, Vriends, Auassar, Micha Pinto, Kitolano, Van Mullem, Lokilo, Mijnans, Lauritsen, van Crooij.

Excelsior

The visiting team is the second-worst in the league when it comes to away matches. With only one win and a draw to go alongside five defeats, there is little optimism that things will change when they visit Sparta. They won't have to travel long as both teams are located in Rotterdam. Excelsior suffered some of the ugliest losses in the league this season, Ajax beat them 7-1 while Feyenoord put five goals past their defense. With all those conceded goals, their defense is logically one of the worst in the league, or rather second-worst to be more precise. They allowed 37 goals, only two short of Volendam who are at the bottom when it comes to that aspect. But, somehow, Excelsior has managed to keep themselves out of the relegation zone the entire season thus far, so they must be doing something right. Coach Marinus Dijkhuizen will be without injured Jacky Donkor and Yassine Ayoub, while Kik Pierie is doubtful to play.

Probable lineup: van Gassel, Tjoe a On, Nieuwpoort, el Yaakoubi, Horemans, Fein, Baas, Driouech, Goudmijn, Azarkan, van Duinen.

Player to Watch: Vito van Crooij

With six goals and five assists to his name, Vito van Crooij is the most effective player for Sparta this season. He has been a torture for the opposition defense which shows in the results his club recorded this season. With Excelsior's faltering defense, van Crooij will get plenty of chances to further adjust his statistics.
