Vitesse hosts Sparta Rotterdam in round 25 of the Dutch Eredivisie. The match will be played on Friday, March 4th at GelreDome (Arnhem)
Vitesse left the Dutch Cup at the quarterfinal stage, losing 0-5 to Ajax. The results in the Conference League are much better: the Yellow-Blacks not only qualified from the group in this debut European tournament but also eliminated Rapid Vienna in the first round of the playoffs. Vitesse lost 2-1 in the capital of Austria but managed to win at home. Moreover, the necessary 2-0 score was achieved already in the first 20 minutes, when Grbic and Bero scored after Dasa’s passes. By the way, it was the first victory since mid-January: the club from Arnhem lost five consecutive games in all competitions and tied 1-1 against Utrecht before the home match against the Austrians. And in the last round, Vitesse managed to hammer Nijmegen (4-1).

Sparta Rotterdam was the grandee of Dutch football more than years ago. From 1909 to 1915, the team won five champion’s titles. However, then there were only several successes in the 50s and 60s of the last century. And recently the representative of Rotterdam spent a lot of time in the 2nd division of the country. Having gained promotion in 2019, Sparta managed to finish in the middle of the standings twice in a row (eighth place in the last Eredivisie draw). But now the team is near the bottom of the standings. Since the beginning of November, the Castle Lords had not managed to win in nine rounds (and in seven games before that). And only in the match before last, they were able to beat Willem II thanks to the only goal of Namli. But PSV Eindhoven expectedly won in Rotterdam on February 27 (1-2), leaving Sparta in the penultimate position.
In the past calendar year, the results of Sparta in head-to-head matches steadily worsened. There was a confident 3-0 victory in May, but then the Castle Lords lost the cup game in Arnhem in December. And three days later, the teams tied 2-2 in Rotterdam. The clubs are not in the best shape right now, and you have to look who is weaker. We decided to bet on the victory of the hosts, who are much higher in the standings and play at home.
