Reason For Emmen vs Sparta Rotterdam Predictions

  • Only two places separate these two clubs in the Eredivisie table.
  • Newly-promoted Sparta could move up one place with a win this weekend.
  • Emmen could slip into the relegation zone if they lose and results elsewhere go against them.
  • Both teams have been struggling for consistency over the last month or so.

Both teams have failed to find the back of the net in recent matches

This is the first time these two clubs have played one another in the top flight of Dutch football but the pair know each other well from their time in the second tier and their last twenty encounters have produced 7 wins, 6 draws, and 7 defeats apiece.

Both teams scored in just two of Emmen’s and two of Sparta’s last five matches, with the hosts failing to score in three of their last five competitive and non-competitive matches and the visitors keeping two clean sheets and failing to score on two occasions during that period, so you can see why we haven’t backed both teams to score this weekend.

Emmen have only lost two home games this season and look strong in their own backyard while Sparta have only won once on the road so far, and that is why we have decided to back a draw on Sunday. Emmen average 1.75 points per home game and Sparta average 0.75 points per away game, so a point each would follow those stats this Sunday.

The record of the hosts at home and the visitors away point towards a stalemate

Emmen have drawn 25% of their home games and Sparta have drawn 38% of their away games, adding further weight to our prediction for a stalemate on Sunday. The hosts have only kept clean sheets in 25% of their home games and the visitors have failed to score in 38% of their away games, which points towards the possibility of a goalless draw between the pair this weekend.

Emmen have failed to score in 31% of their matches this season and Sparta have failed to score in 25% of their Eredivisie games, making it very possible that one or both teams will fail to find the back of the net on Sunday. The form and performances of both teams heading into this weekends’ clash certainly suggest that a 0-0 draw could be on the cards as neither team is playing their best right now and both sides have failed to score in recent matches.

We’re confident that we won’t see both teams score in Sunday’s clash and we have predicted a final scoreline of 0-0. Emmen don’t lose many games at home and Sparta don’t win many on the road and the hosts have failed to win their last four league games, picking up two draws, while the visitors haven’t won any of their last six away games.
