Sparta Rotterdam vs Vitesse Prediction & Betting tips
The Eredivisie will be resumed in Rotterdam on Tuesday evening. Sparta and Vitesse saw their previously planned confrontation canceled due to heavy snowfall. The overtaking match at the Castle is scheduled on Tuesday.
Sparta Rotterdam :
For Sparta it was a first half of the season to quickly forget. After seventeen matches, the Rotterdammers have only managed to collect eleven points, and together with Roda JC are at the bottom of the rankings. The weak results ultimately cost trainer Alex Pastoor the cup. The embarrassing 0-7 home defeat in the city derby was the proverbial drop for the managers at the Castle. As successor, Sparta has managed to get a big name: none other than Dick Advocaat will try to keep the red-white for the Eredivisie.
During the contract consultation, Advocaat did know that reinforcements had to be made in the selection process. The first newcomers have already reported. The desired striker Michiel Kramer saw little success in an adventure with the Spartans, but AZ-players Fred Friday and Dabney dos Santos gave their yes-word. However, defensive reinforcement is also desirable. From Fenerbahce the young Yigithan Güveli was taken over on a rental basis. Since that deal only came around last weekend, it does not seem likely that he will start in the starting line on Tuesday.
Vitesse has had a very special first half of the season. The club from Arnhem is anything but stable, and that volatility took the necessary points for the winter break. Last year’s cup victory allowed Henk Fräser’s team to enter the Europa League group stage directly. In this Vitesse did not break any pots. In particular, the two games against slightly lower ranked Zulte Waregem were weak. That in the last game, where there was nothing at stake, was won at home with 1-0 from OGC Nice, was a consolation prize.
Unlike Sparta, Vitesse kept (so far) quietly on the transfer market during the winter break. There is no real need for reinforcements either – Fräser has quite a wide selection for Eredivisie concepts. But there is someone on the way to the exit. Alexander Büttner completely swallowed the trainers’ staff, and it would be nice to see the left back leave as quickly as possible.
