Preliminary Review and Match Prediction for Sparta Rotterdam vs AZ Alkmaar

With four rounds till the end of the season, mathematically Sparta Rotterdam still have a chance to survive in the Eredivisie. However, the Netherlands’ oldest professional football club need to win all their remaining games and hope their opponents lose some of theirs. With their last defeat by Twente, Sparta suffered their third in their last four games and that has to be improved.

Looking for only their fourth home win in 16 home games, coach Maurice Steijn must adopt an offensive strategy. Obviously, the attack is the main area where The Castle Lords are struggling after they scored just three goals in their last six fixtures. Moreover, Sparta conceded at least one goal in 13 of their 15 games at the Sparta Stadion.

Currently guaranteed for a Europa Conference league playoff berth, AZ Alkmaar aim to push for third place to secure an ECL qualification spot. However, that will be a tough task as the Cheese Farmers are six points behind third-placed Feyenoord. Notably, Alkmaar were in great form going unbeaten in 14 games of which they won 11.

Some of their casualties were Eredivisie’s top three clubs but a loss in momentum resulted in Alkmaar falling behind. To point out, coach Pascal Jansen’s team grabbed seven points from their last five fixtures and that resulted in Alkmaar falling out of the top three spots.

Sparta Rotterdam vs AZ Alkmaar Prediction

This is a very tough match for Sparta who lost all nine of their matches against the top five teams. Therefore, we will back AZ Alkmaar to win Saturday’s clash.
