Willem II vs Sparta Rotterdam
Willem II comes from two pretty good performances in Eredivisie, firstly winning at home against PSV Eindhoven 2:1, then also taking a point in a 3:3 game on the road to Den Haag last weekend.
However, it's sure that they won't be satisfied with the final outcome since the players of Willem II had the two goals lead twice.
They were leading with such difference even during the last ten minutes of the game but simply blew it in the end.
Although it's a slight setback, they remain pretty high at the table sharing currently the fourth position with a couple of other teams.
The home side should play in a version of 4-2-3-1 formation with Pavlidis in attack. Defender Lewis (3/0) should be their only absentee.
Sparta Rotterdam, on the other side, really improved last weekend as the team got a 2:0 home victory against Vitesse.
A goal in each halftime was enough for such an important victory in a match that could have gone way differently since the guests looked quite concrete in attack as well, but it wasn't their day.
With this result they continued with good home performances, being currently seven points above the playout position, which is more than satisfying placement for them at the moment.
The guests are set to play in a version of a 4-3-1-2 formation with Ache and Veldwijk as strikers. Defender Alberto is a long-term absentee for the guests and they should have no other worry.
Willem II have seen over 2.5 goals in 9 of their last 10 home matches against Sparta Rotterdam.
Sparta improved their performance and result last weekend and shouldn't be too passive here either. However, the players of Willem II simply look far better and have shown far more so far in the season.
Especially when it's about their home performances - third in a row seems very likely.
