Sparta Rotterdam vs Heracles Almelo
Sparta got the proverbial lid on its nose on Saturday evening in Tilburg when it was spanked by Willem II. Before the break, the team from Rotterdam were already facing a considerable backlog.
Henk Fraser’s team started the competition so nicely, but dropped to a dubious level. A few days ago, Sparta was mentioned in the same breath with poet and supporter Jules Deelder. Then you know enough. If an Eredivisie club is not about the successful trainer or easily scoring striker, there is a problem. That is different at Heracles Almelo. There it is about the much scoring striker who came to the east of the country last summer. Although Cyriel Dessers, it’s about him, didn’t get the audience on the bench at FC Utrecht or could become the fixed value, he is currently the top scorer of the Premier League. At FC Utrecht, looking at their tumbling vanguard, they will sometimes scratch their heads. Dessers is completely up-to-date and shows things that he has shown at NAC before: goals.
And in football it is of course also about goals. Since Heracles makes it more often and easier than Sparta, we predict a simple win for the holes and a goal from Dessers.
Our Prediction: Over 2.5
