FC Groningen will be wanting a better result here following the 1-0 Eredivisie defeat in their last game at the hands of PSV Eindhoven.

In that match, FC Groningen managed 40% possession and 8 attempts on goal with 1 of them on target. PSV Eindhoven got 13 attempts on goal with 5 on target. Eran Zahavi (64') scored for PSV Eindhoven.

It has been a rare occasion in recent times where FC Groningen haven’t conceded. It will be a concern for them that Trots van het Noorden have seen their defence breached in 5 of their previous 6 matches, giving up 10 goals during that time. That sort of pattern isn’t assured to be sustained into this next game, however.

Looking at the pre-match facts, FC Groningen:

  • have not lost a league tie with Sparta Rotterdam in their last 4 matches.
  • haven’t won at home in the past 2 matches in the league.

In that match, Sparta Rotterdam managed 52% possession and 19 shots on goal with 7 of them on target. For Sparta Rotterdam, the goalscorers were Laros Duarte (41') and Bryan Smeets (67'). On the other side, VVV-Venlo had 10 attempts on goal with 3 of them on target.

Leading up to this clash, Sparta Rotterdam:

  • haven't beaten FC Groningen when they have played them away from home in the previous 6 league games. They really have not been travelling well at all.
  • haven’t won away from home in the past 2 league games.

🤜🤛 Head to head

A review of their prior head-to-head clashes dating back to 19/02/2017 shows that FC Groningen have won 4 of these and Sparta Rotterdam 1, with the number of drawn results being 1.

A total of 21 goals were shared by the two clubs throughout the course of those matches, with 14 for Trots van het Noorden and 7 netted by Kasteelheren. The average goals per game has been 3.5.

The last league meeting featuring the two was Eredivisie match day 13 on 19/12/2020 and the score finished Sparta Rotterdam 2-3 FC Groningen.

The match was refereed by Danny Makkelie.

📋 Team News: FC Groningen

Almost everyone can be considered, as there’s just the lone fitness concern for the FC Groningen manager Danny Buijs to contend with from an otherwise fully-primed set of players. Bart van Hintum (Unknown Injury) is sidelined. Alessio Da Cruz cannot play in this game through suspension.

📰 Team News: Sparta Rotterdam

Sparta manager Henk Fräser has some current player fitness concerns. Danzell Gravenberch (Unknown Injury), Jeffry Fortes (Unknown Injury) and Bart Vriends (Unknown Injury) are not ready for selection.

🧠 Prediction

Our thinking is that Sparta Rotterdam have it within them to find the net against this FC Groningen side, however it is unlikely to prevent them from conceding a couple at the other end.

We’re going for a 2-1 advantage for FC Groningen at full-time. Should be a good one.
