Tip Heracles - Sparta Rotterdam
Prediction published on May 12, 2022 at 11:56 PM - Modified on May 13, 2022 at 12:59 PM
Heracles host Sparta Rotterdam in the final set of regular season games in the Dutch Eredvisie. The home side are 14th with their opponents only one place below them. Both sides are still in danger of ending up in the relegation play-off. Heracles lead Sparta by two points but it's how 16th placed Fortuna Sittard and Willem II in 17th get on that is important. Sittard are behind Sparta on goal difference and two points behind Heracles. Willem II are only two points adrift of Sparta. Heracles know a point will see them safe because of their superior goal difference. They come into this game having failed to win any of their last three league games. Both of their last two matches have ended in 2-0 defeats allowing the sides below them to make up ground. Heracles have won seven home league games this season but have gone three without a victory.
Sparta Rotterdam will be safe if neither Sittard or Willem II win this weekend. A draw for Sittard would mean Sparta have to get something from this game at Heracles. Only if Willem II win must Sparta avoid defeat this weekend. They are unbeaten in their last three games and that has got them out of the relegation zone. They had been trailing by three points before beating Vitesse and Groningen. Their away form is poor with only three league wins and with 11 goals they are the lowest scorers on their travels. Before the win at Vitesse, Sparta had just one win in their last 14 Eredvisie away fixtures. A form guide for the last five games has them in fifth place but they could yet end up in relegation trouble. A double chance bet on Sparta is the suggested wager.
Key points Heracles - Sparta Rotterdam

Conclusion Heracles - Sparta Rotterdam
It's going to be a nervous weekend for these two clubs. Sparta have done well to get themselves out of the bottom three but could yet return there. Heracles looked safe but two straight defeats have put their Eredvisie status in danger. Sparta have suddenly discovered how to get decent away results and a double chance bet on them to win or draw this is the suggested wager.
