Sparta Rotterdam vs Vitesse Lineups, Team News, and Preview

Sparta Rotterdam

With a win over Excelsior last weekend, Sparta increased its point tally to get some comfortable spacing from teams that are trying to break into the top seven of the Eredivisie which brings a European football next season. Adil Auassar is the only player missing from the Rotterdam team due to suspension.

Provisional lineup: Olij, Sambo, Vriends, Eerdhuijzen, Micha Pinto, Kitolano, de Guzman, van Crooij, Verschueren, Saito, Lauritsen.

Vitesse

The Arnhem team has a good streak of five games with only one loss before getting into another negative run of games with three straight losses. Vitesse still has some space from the relegation zone, but that level of comfort is not large enough to give them a relaxed state of mind. Davy Propper will miss the match through injury.

Provisional lineup: Scherpen, Wittek, Isimat-Mirin, Oroz, Arcus, Tronstad, Meulensteen, Bero, van Ginkel, Kozlowski, Manhoef.
