They can count themselves a bit lucky, however, knowing they only had 35% of possession. Nevertheless, they parried the hosts in all other parameters and deserved to remain unbeaten. The Castle Lords, as people know them in Rotterdam, held their ground in the local derby against Feyenoord and ran away with a point after the 2-2 stalemate. With only two defeats in their last 10 matches in all competitions, the hosts are found as favourites on all lists of betting sites. The hosts ended their three-match winning run in the opening round of the Eredivisie last weekend.

Sparta Rotterdam vs Ajax Reserves Stats

Ajax have conceded in just 48% of their Eredivisie games this season, while theyve won to nil in 50% of their home matches. Theyre not pitting that record against a team who have already failed to score in 27% of their away league matches. The hosts should manage to extend their impressive defensive record, while they should also bag themselves a few goals along the way.

Taking that to Ajax is pretty worrying, as the hosts have won 70% of their games at the Amsterdam Arena this season, and they are looking like serious contenders for the title. Sparta come in to this game in awful form, having lost six of their last seven league outings. Theyve built their push for silverware off an excellent defensive record, and thats something else which should trouble the side from Rotterdam.

Sparta have 6 first division titles and 3 KNVB Cup wins. However, they havent won any since the Cup win in 1966 and their last Eredivisie title came in 1958/59. Sparta Rotterdam won back promotion in style by clinching the 2015/16 Eerste Divisie title. They are one of the oldest club in Netherlands and got relegated from the top division only twice, first in 2002 and the second in 2010.

Ajax vs Sparta Rotterdam Predictions, Betting Tips and Match Previews

Ajax arent that far off top spot, and theyre capable of pulling off a big victory like that. Sparta were crushed by rivals Feyenoord 6-1 earlier this season, and that result laid bare the gulf between them and the top level of Dutch football. Ajax have scored 2.4 goals per game at home, and theyll be looking to claim a big victory to send out a message as they hunt down the leaders. After all, Sparta have conceded over two goals per game away from home against the rest of the league, so theyre bound to struggle here.

Ajax lost the 2015/16 league title to PSV Eindhoven in the last day of the season in a dramatic fashion. They will be hoping for a similar run this season, but a better result at the end. They were held to a 1-1 draw by the relegated Da Graafschap, while Eindhoven, who were trailing until them grab a 3-1 win against PEC Zwolle to make the title their own.

Sparta Rotterdam vs Ajax Betting Tips, Predictions and Stats

Theyre hardly likely to build on that poor return with a result here, especially with the hosts pushing for top spot. The visitors are probably hoping to see their city rivals get pegged back at the top anyway, but its likely to happen in this complete mismatch. This is a clash between second and 14th in the Dutch top flight, while no side has claimed fewer league points on the road than Sparta. Can Ajax continue to put pressure on to Eredivisie leaders Feyenoord with a huge victory over Sparta Rotterdam this weekend?
