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

Zwolle

The fans were not happy that the team sold some of their most important players to Eredivisie teams like Feyenoord and Twente. There were plenty of new players added, however, but whether they will be able to replace the quality that Thomas Beelen, Younes Taha, and Thomas van den Belt brought is a matter of question.

Probable lineup: Hauptmeijer, Lam, Kersten, Czyborra, Chirino, Thomas, Huiberts, van den Berg, Namli, Reijnders, Thy.

Sparta Rotterdam

Sparta didn't spend a lot of money this summer, the club management strengthened the team where it was needed and some of the new players are Camiel Neghli, Django Warmerdam, and Tijs Velthuis.

Probable lineup: Olij, Eerdhuijzen, Vriends, Warmerdam, Rosanas, de Guzman, van Mullem, Kitolano, Verschueren, van Crooij, Lauritsen.

Player to Watch: Vito van Crooij

Probably Sparta's biggest win this preseason is keeping its star player Vito van Crooij. The 27-year-old winger has been terrific last season when Sparta played great football and managed to fight for European competitions. Van Crooij has totaled 21 goals in 75 appearances for the Rotterdam outfit alongside 16 assists.

He was touted by many pundits to leave the club this summer, but that hasn't transpired. Instead, van Crooij will lead Sparta into a new season. Earlier in his career he played for Venlo and looking at his overall stats, van Crooij has played in 332 games scoring 79 goals and adding 49 assists to his record.
