Netherlands - Eredivisie EclÂ playoff 2022/2023
Both team score
In the Dutch league, the playoffs for the places in Europe are coming up after the season. In the playoff for the Conference League, Utrecht has to face Sparta Rotterdam in the first leg. While Utrecht ended the season in the upper midfield, as in the last four years, the Rotterdam based team achieved their best position since promotion in 2018. Therefore, Sparta is the clear underdog among the bookmakers. However, many times this season the guests in this match show that they are able at least to score against the top sides in the league. Sparta Rotterdam has also gained playoff experience in recent years. In terms of current form, both teams are very similar. Only two defeats from the last seven league games initially indicate that we can expect a tough game. The stats show us that Sparta haven't won against Utrecht since 2008 and in each of the last 5 games against Sparta, Utrecht have scored at least 3 goals. Also Sparta have lost just 1 of their last 6 league games away from home.
