80 'GOAL Sparta Rotterdam! 

3-0



It will be even better for Sparta!

Aaron Meijers hits hard and the ball accidentally ends up at Emegha, who is not offside and simply taps in.

a few seconds ago

77 'GOAL Sparta Rotterdam! 

2-0



Sparta seems to have ended the game!

Lennart Thy heads from a perfect corner from Bryan Smeets.

a few seconds ago

73 'Double substitution at Sparta, where Sven Mijnants and Mario Engels are replaced by Emanuel Emegha and Michael Heylen.

Fräser therefore takes two attackers to the side and brings one attacker and one defender into the team.

With that, Fräser responds to the attacking substitution of his colleague Letsch.

70 'Just before Bazoer's ball hit the crossbar, attacker Oussama Darfalou entered the team at Vitesse, replacing defender Jacob Rasmussen.

That means that Vitesse now plays with three attackers.

68 ' 

Lat! 

Vitesse has not yet been closer to the equalizer tonight!

Richedly Bazoer has a great hit, but the ball shatters on the crossbar.

62 'Bryan Smeets anticipates well on the header from Thy, but produces a drop-off.

61 'There was then a great opportunity for Vitesse.

After a good cross from Bero, Broja hits the ball completely wrong.

a few seconds ago

Vitesse has the most ball possession after the break, but Thomas Letsch's team does not have good opportunities for the time being.

Sparta is holding up very well.

52 'Tom Beugelsdijk prevents Armando Broja's shot from reaching the goal with a sliding.

The Hagenees have played an excellent match so far.

a few seconds ago

51 'Tannane lashes out with the right, but produces a farewell.

For the time being it is not yet the game of the creative pivot of Vitesse, as it actually applies to his entire team.

a few seconds ago

48 'Sparta does not play a dangerous counterbutt well at first, before Lennart Thy still manages to make a shot from about twenty meters.

Pasveer can easily take the ball.

a few seconds ago

46 'The second half has started.

Can Vitesse show a bit more after the break?

a few seconds ago

Vitesse matches do not guarantee spectacle this season.

There were 77 goals in matches of the Arnhem team this season.

Only in duels between FC Groningen (76) and RKC Waalwijk (76) were fewer goals scored this season.

Peace! 

Sparta leads 1-0 against Vitesse halfway through a goal from Bryan Smeets.

Given the opportunities, the lead is deserved, because the visitors hardly created anything in the first half.

a few seconds ago

45 + 1 'Again Wittek!

Tannane surprisingly decides from a free kick not to give up, but to put the ball back on the left back.

Wittek lashes out, but Okoye stylishly dives the ball out of the corner.

a few seconds ago

43 'Finally Vitesse shows itself a bit again, with a header from Wittek that goes wide.

a few seconds ago

Given the odds ratio, Sparta's lead is certainly not undeserved.

It was the fourth season goal for Bryan Smeets.

36 'GOAL Sparta Rotterdam! 

1-0



Engels throws the ball into the box and Bryan Smeets appears in the right place exactly in time to head in the opening goal, through the legs of Pasveer.

34 'After Sparta's strong opening phase, Vitesse takes control.

However, Thomas Letsch's team does not or hardly create anything.

a few seconds ago

30 'Vitesse claims a penalty after Abels heads the ball against the arm of his teammate Auassar.

Nijhuis, however, does not give a penalty, because Auassar could do very little about it.

a few seconds ago

20 'The home team starts to take control and is close to the opening goal again.

Sven Mijnans curls the ball with his left foot just wide.

a few seconds ago

17 'The best opportunity of the match is for Bryan Smeets, who passes Vitesse goalkeeper Pasveer, but sees his too weak effort being taken away by Rasmussen well before the line.

a few seconds ago

Sparta and Vitesse keep each other in balance in the first fifteen minutes in terms of both standing and game image.

Both teams have already handed out pinpricks, but the two keepers have not yet been put to work.

a few seconds ago

a few seconds ago

10 'Free kick in a nice place for Oussama Tannane, but he shoots a meter over.

a few seconds ago

8 'Second attempt by Sparta, now via Abdou Harroui.

After a fine attack, the skilled midfielder gets the ball in front of his left, but he shoots wide wide.

a few seconds ago

1 'After a few seconds, Sparta already gets a corner, from which Tom Beugelsdijk heads over.

The central defender was still accurate against FC Groningen last week.

a few seconds ago

Kick-off! 

Game round 32 in the Eredivisie has started on Spangen!

a few seconds ago

Henk Fräser faces his old club tonight.

Between 2016 and 2018 he was the trainer of Vitesse, with which he won the KNVB Cup in 2017.

a few seconds ago

Both Vitesse and Sparta have a good season.

Since 2013 (64 points), the people from Arnhem have not collected as many points as the current number of sixty.

Sparta is on 40 points and since the introduction of the three-point system, more points have only been achieved in the seasons 1995/1996 (53) and 1997/1998 (41).

a few seconds ago

Setup! 

Bart Vriends will get a basic place at Sparta tonight.

By fitting in the central defender, Adil Auassar moves back to midfield and Laros Duarte has to take a seat on the bench.



Sparta line-up: 

Okoye;

Abels, Vriends, Beugelsdijk, Meijers;

Auassar, Harroui, Smeets;

Mijnans, Thy, English

a few seconds ago

Setup! 

Vitesse can again have Riechedly Bazoer, Eli Dasa, Jacob Rasmussen, Maximilian Wittek and Sondre Tronstad.

The five were missing against PEC Zwolle (2-1 win) due to injuries and suspensions. 



Vitesse setup: 

Pasveer;

Dasa, Doekhi, Bazoer, Rasmussen, Wittek;

Bero, Tannane, Tronstad;

Openda, Broja

Sparta has a strong season and is in a handsome ninth place, just two points from number eight Heracles Almelo.

Eighth place entitles the player to the play-offs for European football at the end of the season.

Last week, the Spangenaren won cleverly with 1-2 at FC Groningen.

a few seconds ago

Round 32 in the Eredivisie starts at Het Kasteel with Sparta-Vitesse.

The visitors from Arnhem can take a big step this evening to secure the fourth place, which results in European football.

Should Vitesse win tonight and Feyenoord will not win against Ajax on Sunday, fourth place is certainly for Thomas Letsch's team.
