Excelsior (also known as Excelsior Rotterdam or SBV Excelsior) and Sparta Rotterdam (commonly referred to as Sparta) meet again 5 months after the Eredivisie match which Sparta Rotterdam won 1-0. Excelsior are on a poor run of form as they're approaching this clash after defeats from Groningen, NEC and AZ failing to register a single victory in their past 6 games and the fact that they have scored zero goals in their previous 4 matches puts extra pressure on the team's forwards.

Sparta Rotterdam are preparing for the match after 2 defeats in a row from Utrecht and Ajax. They're going to need to sort out the problems in the back first to improve the results as they have been conceding goals for 3 consecutive matches now.
