NEC Nijmegen vs Sparta Rotterdam Top Predictions and Bets

NEC didn't have much of a chance earlier in the week against the league leaders Feyenoord, but they are now returning home to face another tough opponent.

Under 2.5 Goals

Both of these teams have the propensity to play low-scoring matches, even when they play against each other. The under 2.5 goals mark was covered in their last six matches. For the season, NEC is the best ‘under' team in Eredivisie with 13 matches where fewer than three goals were scored. Sparta is somewhat upstream on that account going for eight under 2.5 goals matches in 18 played. Sparta had four out of the last five games as low-scoring affairs.

Draw

A points split seems like a logical prediction every time NEC is playing. Of course, they are a team with the largest number of draw games in the league with ten. Sparta had half of that amount, but also three of their last five matches ended with a draw. Even looking at the head-2-head stats, it is clear that they play with a lot of defending and carefulness when they attack the goal. Three out of their last five encounters ended with a draw.

We are taking a look at how the bookmakers are predicting the outcome of the upcoming match:

NEC Nijmegen odds: 5/4 (2.25) – 44.4%

Draw odds: 9/4 (3.25) – 30.8%

Sparta Rotterdam: 11/5 (3.20) – 31.3%

The bookmakers are expecting a tight match with NEC having a slight advantage most likely because they are the home team. But, there is a need to look at other possibilities when it comes to this particular match: As both teams don't play many games with lots of goals lately, a Goal Range of 0-1 is a good try at the price of 9/4 (3.25) – 30.8%. Halftime/Full-time option as a Draw/Draw will provide you with odds of 7/2 (4.50) – 22.2%.

Team News, Provisional Lineups, and Preview

NEC Nijmegen

When you have only four wins in 18 matches, it is not expected that you will be ranked inside the top ten, but NEC's season is anything but usual. Nobody had more draw games than the Nijmegen team, and with only four losses they are deservedly where they are. They found a way how to get points without actually winning and that could be characterized as a good tactic as long as they are far away from the relegation zone. The home team does have some injury concerns: Magnus Mattson is injured, while Jordy Bruijn, Robin Roefs, and Mathias De Wolf are going to work hard before the weekend match to be fit for the tie. Ivan Marquez won't play because of suspension.

Provisional lineup: Cillessen, van Rooij, Kramer, Sandler, El Karouani, Schone, Duelund, Proper, Tavsan, Dimata, Cissoko.

Sparta Rotterdam

Even though they recently beat Cambuur 3-0, Sparta's coach Maurice Steijn should be worried about his team's lack of scoring. Cambuur is the worst team in the league, and scoring three times won't make Sparta's fans any more secure about their team's form. In the other three games they played after the season was restarted following the winter break, they only scored one goal. The positive aspect is that the team is at full strength without injured or suspended players.

Provisional lineup: Olij, Micha Pinto, Auassar, Vriends, Sambo, Verschueren, Kitolano, Mijnans, Saito, Lauritsen, van Crooij.

Starting lineups

Starting lineups are usually released 60 minutes before kick-off.

Player to Watch: Vito van Crooij

Van Crooij has been a top scorer for Sparta for some time now even though he had a slump in form for a few months. But, against Cambuur he was finally able to score a goal which should give him some confidence for the next few games. He is also the team's best creator of chances with five assists.
