Sparta Rotterdam vs Heerenveen by Henrik Mikkeller
Sorry for the last minute tip guys - meant to post this yesterday (when the price was 2.0) but didn't get time!
Hopefully a nice and easy one here: Heerenveen are one of Eredivisie's form teams, only Ajax have performed better over the last six games, and they have found the net twice or more in all bar one of their competitive away matches this season.
Sparta are no mugs but Heerenveen have three of the league's top ten goal-scorers and know that a win can keep them close to the big boys of Ajax, PSV and Feyenoord. Look for Heerenveen to push on and try to secure a victory.
The reason I recommend the over 1.5 goals bet rather than a clean Heerenveen win is that Sparta haven't been embarrassed on their return to the top flight and have a reasonable home record, although admittedly mainly against poorer teams than they will face tonight. Sparta are also struggling with injuries with at least 3 first team starters missing (Van Moorsel, Pinteaux & Sanusi) whilst the away team have a relatively clean bill of health, with only forward Pelle van Amersfoort sidelined.
- Heerenveen are in top form, winning 4 of their last 5 away matches (and having scored at least twice in all 5)
- Heerenveen have 3 of the league's top scorers in Zeneli, Larsson and Ghoochannejhad
- Sparta with a large number of players missing due to injury
