Reason For RKC vs Sparta Rotterdam Predictions

  • Both teams scored in 4 of the last 7 meetings between these two clubs.
  • RKC have only kept 1 clean sheet in their last 6 matches.
  • Both teams scored in 5 of Sparta’s last 6 matches.
  • Sparta have only won 1 of their 11 away games but have drawn on the road 3 times.

Both teams are in poor form heading into Friday’s clash

RKC lost 3-0 away at Ajax in a game they were never expected to take anything from while Sparta lost 2-1 at home to Groningen, meaning the gap between the two clubs heading into Friday’s clash remains at 15pts. Both teams head into the match in poor form but Sparta just edge the form guide with one win, two draws, and three defeats from their last six outings.

Both teams have scored in four of the last seven encounters between these two clubs, as well as in five of Sparta’s last six matches, while RKC have only kept one clean sheet in their last six outings, so you can see why we have backed both teams to score on Friday. RKC have only picked up two wins and two draws from their eleven home games while Sparta have only won once on the road but have drawn three times, which is why we have backed the pair to play out a draw this Friday.

The hosts average 0.73 points per home game while the visitors average 0.55 points per away game, with RKC drawing as many games as they have won (18%) and Sparta drawing three times as many games on the road compared to wins (27%). RKC score an average of 1.00 goals per home game and concede 1.64 goals while Sparta score an average of 0.82 goals per away game and concede 2.18 goals, and we have predicted a final scoreline of 1-1 between the pair.

Sparta only have one win on the road this season

Both teams have scored in 55% of the hosts’ home matches and the visitors’ away matches so far this season and exactly 2-goals have been scored in 27% of RKC’s home games and Sparta’s away games, adding further weight to our prediction for a 1-1 draw on Friday. RKC have only kept clean sheets in 27% of their home games and Sparta have managed to shut their opponents out in just 9% of their away games, and we are backing both teams to score at the Mandemakers Stadion.

RKC have only scored 11 goals at home and have conceded 18 while Sparta have just 9-goals on the road but have conceded 24, which is why we can’t see either club keeping a clean sheet this Friday. Over 1.5 goals have been scored in 91% of RKC’s home matches and Sparta’s away trips, which is why we feel a 1-1 draw is far more likely than the pair playing out a goalless draw.

We’re confident that both teams will score on Friday night and we have predicted a final scoreline of 1-1 between the two clubs. Neither side are playing well right not and RKC have struggled for wins all season, while Sparta have been very poor on the road which makes the most likely result a draw.
