The third round of the Eredivisie will include a match between Sparta Rotterdam and Ajax at Sparta Stadion Het Kasteel.
The Rotterdammers had numerous defensive issues in their 3-2 loss to AZ Alkmaar, so it seems sense that bookmakers are giving them a huge disadvantage in Sunday’s matchup with the defending champions.
Even though Maurice Steijn has a full roster to pick from, a victory at home shouldn’t be taken into account.
On the other side, the defending champions are in good spirits heading to Rotterdam after defeating Groningen 6-1 on Matchday 2.
Since Sparta favor Ajax and defender Calvin Bassey has returned from suspension, we think there is significant value in betting on Dusan Tadic and company.
Tadic’s first-half goal helped Ajax overcome Sparta Rotterdam in their most recent meeting at the stadium.
The game will take place on August 21, 2022, at 13:30.
Prediction: Away Win.
