Sparta Rotterdam Prediction – Can Sparta Rotterdam extend unbeaten run?

Sparta Rotterdam achieved promotion from the Dutch Eerste Divisie at the end of last season to take their place in the top flight this term.

A 3-2 aggregate win against De Graafschap was enough for Sparta Rotterdam to swap places with their play-off opponents.

Friday night’s hosts in this Eredivisie clash bring a 4-match unbeaten run into this encounter against Venlo and will be keen to extend this run tonight.

It was a pretty successful pre-season for Sparta Rotterdam as the hosts racked up 5 wins from their 6 warm-up matches prior to the start of this season.

Wins against VOC, Zaglebie Lubin, Willem II, NAC Breda and Den Bosch set them up nicely for the start of the new Eredivisie campaign.

Last weekend’s opening clash away at Feyenoord looked to be a tough assignment too, but Sparta Rotterdam gained a solid point on the road.

A 2-2 draw at the Stadion Feijenoord was a creditable result and Sparta will now look to grab all three points in this their opening home match of the season.

Venlo Prediction – Can Venlo achieve greater consistency?

Friday night’s visitors, Venlo, had to endure a frustrating campaign in last season’s Dutch top flight as they finished in 12th place amidst inconsistent results.

However, Venlo also enjoyed a solid pre-season which saw the visitors lose just 1 of their 6 warm-up matches, which included 3 wins.

Victories against Venlosche Boys, Straelen and Eindhoven gave Venlo some much needed encouragement prior this new season.

They carried this momentum into this new Eredivisie campaign and got off to a great start with all three points against RKC Waalwijk.

A resounding 3-1 win at home last weekend will therefore send Venlo on the road to Rotterdam for this Friday night’s clash with Sparta in confident mood.

And although Venlo experienced a horrific latter half of last season on the road as they lost 8 of 10 matches played during September to early March, they did recover.

The visitors ended last season with a 4-match unbeaten run on their travels which consisted of 3 draws and 1 win.

Draws at NAC Breda, Fortuna Sittard and Heerenveen were followed up with a 4-2 win at PEC Zwolle to end their away form on a high note.
