Proving their penchant for fruitful encounters, goals have been scored 27 times in the previous six games in which Sparta Rotterdam have taken to the pitch, making it a mean average of 4.5 goals per fixture. Opposing teams have got 17 of this grand total. With no two games being the same, we’ll just have to find out whether that pattern will be replicated in this game.

- have not emerged victorious against Feyenoord when they've played them away from home in the last 10 matches in the league. A really bad run.
- are without an away win for the past 3 league matches.

Team News: Feyenoord
Robert Bozenik (Fatigue fracture), Nicolai Jörgensen (Groin Injury), Luis Sinisterra (Knee Injury), Sven van Beek (Ankle Surgery) and Eric Botteghin (Hamstring Injury) won’t be able to feature for Feyenoord boss Dick Advocaat.
Team News: Sparta Rotterdam
Sparta boss Henk Fräser has to contend with a number of unavailable players. Wouter Burger (Corona virus), Mario Engels (Hamstring Injury) and Tim Coremans (Torn Knee Ligament) are those who can’t be considered.
It looks to us that Feyenoord are likely to see a lot of the ball and convert quite a few goal-scoring opportunities.
At the same time, Sparta Rotterdam won’t find it easy getting on the scoresheet but we do think it’s quite likely that they will be getting the chances to score, too.
Our tip is for a controlled 3-1 win for Feyenoord when the full-time whistle blows.
