Team News: SC Cambuur
The SC Cambuur boss Henk de Jong does not have any fitness concerns whatsoever coming into this match with a completely injury-free squad ready to go. Doke Schmidt will not be able to play in this game through being suspended.
We think that Herten should opt for a 4-3-3 formation for this one featuring Sonny Stevens, Jhondly van der Meer, Calvin Mac-Intosch, Erik Schouten, Alex Bangura, Jamie Jacobs, Mitchell Paulissen, Robin Maulun, Nick Doodeman, Roberts Uldrikis and Patrick Joosten.
Team News: Sparta Rotterdam
Owing to an otherwise healthy group of players, there is just the lone fitness issue for the Sparta Rotterdam boss Henk Fräser to be concerned with. Benjamin van Leer (Foot Injury) won’t be playing here. Adil Auassar is ineligible for this match because of suspension.
We are inclined to think that Kasteelheren seem most likely to utilise a 5-3-2 formation, starting Tim Coremans, Giannis Masouras, Bart Vriends, Tom Beugelsdijk, Aaron Meijers, Vito van Crooij, Sven Mijnans, Dirk Abels, Younes Namli, Lennart Thy and Adrian Dalmau.
We believe that Sparta Rotterdam and SC Cambuur should both be able to find the back of the net here although it’s difficult to select a clear winner.
We’ll see, but this looks like it could end up all-square. We’re therefore tipping a 1-1 scoreline at the end of the 90 minutes.
