NEC - Sparta Rotterdam betting tips and odds

Kickoff starts at 21:00 on 19/03/2022 played @ Sportpark De Weeren refereed by Jochem Kamphuis

The hosts have everything stacking up against them in this match including the betting odds of 2.55. NEC will indeed find it very hard to beat Sparta Rotterdam here but nothing is impossible if you try hard enough.

The visitors are well-aware of the task ahead. Beating NEC is difficult under any circumstances and doing it on their own turf would be an even bigger achievement for Sparta Rotterdam.

No one expected NEC to win the previous round at FC Groningen – they were the visiting team in a highly disfavourable matchup. Even though they somehow managed to end the first half with a lead, their opponents went home with 3 points after a narrow 4:3 win.

Although they don’t always make it look easy, Sparta Rotterdam tend to deliver results in the end. Their previous showdown against Go Ahead Eagles saw them secure a narrow 1:0 home win after a rocky first half.

NEC’s recent performances have raised some questions about their defence. They conceded 11 goals throughout their latest three Eredivisie matches and betting on Over 4.5 seems like a reasonable option.

Sparta Rotterdam’s past two matches featured less than 2 goals. As such, going for markets such as Over 2.5 or Both Teams to Score is not recommended.

At this point, the clash between these two teams is notorious for producing inconclusive results. They already have several tied matches on record in this season alone, which is ultimately worse for the home team who are considered favourites.

The hosts may be favourites to win the match, but their lineup is in a somewhat weakened state. Rens Van Eijden, Jordy Bruijn, Pedro Ruiz are all sidelined due to injury, which makes NEC’s position as favourites a bit shakier than it might seem.

Thankfully, Sparta Rotterdam will be able to bring out their roster in full force, with no players forced to the sidelines due to injury or suspension. They’re still considered underdogs, mind you, but it’s something to consider.

Though a Home Win seems like a sure bet here, we would advise securing it additionally with a Draw No Bet. NEC have been known to lack consistency at times, so removing the possibility of a draw is well worth reducing the odds to 1.73.

Betting tip (stake: 8/10): Home Draw No Bet 1.73 at bet365
Correct score prediction: 2:0
